Great pants but not entirely thought through for pack carrying
I love the fabric, feel and style of these pants. I have just returned from walking the Overland track in Tasmania and I wore these pants every day. Overall they were great for the conditions, light weight and easy to move in. I especially love the high waisted fit so when wearing my pack they didn't get pushed down like other pants I have. A couple of things that weren't great is the front pocket zippers sit right on your hip bones so with a pack on this was really painful. I found I had to walk with the zippers undone so they didn't rub which then makes me think the zippers could just be removed from the design. Also, the D-ring on the back I don't think is necessary and is another rigid item on the waist area that is not ideal when carrying a large pack. Like the zippers I will cut this off myself.
