Rated 5 out of 5 by Brightstar Love these trekking pants and shorts
These pants and shorts are the most comfortable trekking pants and shorts I have ever worn. I actually live in them they fit so well and are lightweight, which keeps me cool. They also have convenient pockets for keys, cell phone and ID, which I carry with me on my hikes. I have purchased 2 pair of pants and 5 pair of shorts in different colors. I wanted to stock up incase they were discontinued. They also wash and dry nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by outsideone super pants
Thought these were a little thin feeling when first rec'd. Wore them camping, hiking, & biking--they were extra comfortable, did not overheat and seemed hardy as well. If anything, they could be just a tad longer..but you wouldn't want them to be dragging through turf when hiking, plusses & minuses. Anyway, I love the pants!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by urbanpath Comfortable and perfect fit
I really love these pants. They were perfect for travel. Very light weight, quick drying. I also love the feature to cinch the legs up to convert into a capri lenght. I am 5'4", 140lbs and the size 10 fit perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by fanofllbean60 None of these come in 'Tall'
This review is not just specifically for the Vista Trekking pants but for all of the Active Wear Pants in this general price range. They all come in a nice range of sizes but none come in 'Tall'. I've seen medium tall but since my inseam is 35 inches the 33 inch medium tall is 2 inches too short. I'm disappointed that even LL Bean makes it difficult to find pants long enough for anyone who is not petite or average height. I've given up on finding longer than average tops, skirts or dresses but I'm not spending good money to buy pants that I know will be too short right from the start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Taos Terrific pants for hiking, travel, sun protection
The third pair of Vista trekking pants just arrived yesterday. The first pair was bought for an upcoming trip to Spain because of the UPF protection, lightweight, zippered leg pockets and how well they drip dry (better than machine dry for wrinkle free appearance). They fit beautifully with a nice straight, not too wide leg and became my go to pants for everyday for the last 2 months here in New Mexico. All 3 pair will be going with me to Spain for everything from walking the Camino de Santiago to touristing in Barcelona. The granite color is actually chic (what a surprise for Bean). I was worried about the placement of the rear zippers for carrying a pack, but my day pack just clears them. For a full back pack the rear zipper placement could be an issue. For a product called a trekking pant, you'd think Bean would be more thoughtful about the design. Overall, the best warm weather hiking pant I've ever bought from Bean or any other manufacturer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Windsor42 nice pants
These pants are so lightweight, so comfortable, and so good looking on. They do not bind at the waist. They stretch just a little. Inside the waistband is soft fabric, very nice against the skin. They feel cool in warm weather and keep in the heat when it gets chilly at night. Really good job on these, LL!

Rated 3 out of 5 by kjchj too baggy and run short and large
darned I wanted to like these; ordered 6 and really need just a 4; there is NO way to keep these things up; and this size is too baggy as well...nice summer weight and the roll up tab is a nice feature...darned if that whole size is sold out!
