Reviews - The North Face Men's Paramount Traverse Pants
I bought these for a vacation but I've found them just as useful at home. The fit is average, a little more snug than Craghoppers but still comfortable (220#, large parts). The zippered and sewn flap side pockets hold smaller times such a keys or cell phones and look more "dressy" than cargo pockets on BDU-style pants.
A nice light hiking pant. They are a bit baggier fit throughout than my Columbia Silver Ridge pants of the same size. The side cargo pockets are a little small. The zippered side pocket is too small for my wallet, and the other side while bigger does not zip or velcro. The front pockets are at an odd angle, so that you have to stick your hands into your pocket almost straight down, this is a plus since nothing will fall out unless you are pretty much upside down. I plan on ordering a second pair.
Guys, I have a relatively athletic build for my age (60) and have had the same waist size (34) for over 20 years. These pants, or at least the current manufacturing run, are a tight 34 inches around the waist. I absolutely like the material, workmanship, finish and sizing - other than the waist. Considered taking the pants to a tailor, but there is no additional material in the waistband to allow for an adjustment to widen. Unfortunately, I will not be exchanging for a size 36 - not only because they are not available in the color I want, but more because these pants are proportioned very nicely and going to a larger waist would oversize the legs and bottom openings - as mentioned in an earlier review of these pants.
