    I think you'll be happy. It's not a skinny slim, plus it's stretchy. It is still vanity sized, a 32 fits and still needs a belt for my 34" actual waist. Plus, free returns.

    I like the fit. I especially like the way it fits in the rear. Usually I have an issue with pants being too baggy there even if they fit and these are spot on.

    I'm going to give them a field test tomorrow on a hike and if I like them I will be back to Amazon for another pair or two,.

    I’m sort of stupidly old school - if I know I’ll be wet-wading on a fly fishing hike, I’ll go with a pair of synthetic hiking pants (many brands, including Prana, available to try on at your local REI). Otherwise, it’s cotton cargo pants - I like stashing snacks, sunblock, and little stuff in the thigh pockets. Works great in the Sierra Nevada and Coastal California mountains in decent weather.

    I recently just played golf and did some hiking in the Proof Rover pants form huckberry. I found them to be really sturdy and tech/performance without the "whoosh whoosh" sound of your pants rubbing against each other.
    Would recommend, i know they get a bad rep since falling under huckberry roof but i dont know why?

    I have a pair of garden-variety pants from Columbia that have held up very well. I think that they are Royce Peak II pants. They just look like plain jane chinos from a distance. Shown here on me during an actual hike...

    Avid backpacker and hiker here who recently came back from a year traveling the world, with the trip focused on long treks and epic hikes.

    Pants - Prana Brion. Hands down, end the search here . Flexible, quick drying, sweat wicking, breathable, and doesn't look "tech". I wore these pants to dinner, clubs, bars, and did 10 day backpacking trips through the Peruvian Andes with them. They feel equally at home everywhere. I'll never buy a different pair of hiking pants again.

    Shirt - Smartwool NTS 150 long sleeve shirt. They're pricey at $85 a pop for full price, but I always wait for the sales where they drop to 48-55. Breathable, doesn't smell even if you haven't washed it for 3-5 days and have sweated in it non-stop, even if you're a heavy sweater (yes, voice of experience). They look good, come in a variety of colors, I usually roll up the sleeves but they're nice to roll down when it gets chilly or if you want to keep the sun off.

    Underwear - wool underwear, while pricey, is absolutely amazing for the same smell-free, temperature and moisture regulating properties.

    Sun hat - the one thing I haven't found a variant of that's not completely hikerish/nerdy if you want it to really work well. But functionality > looks outdoors.
