The pant is light weight and keeps me cooler. I like that the front pockets are deep, the cargo pockets keep my items toward the front of my legs-I find this more comfortable. The zippers work smoothly and in the time I have worn the pant, have not bound or caught in the material. The leg zippers are "color coded" (something I've not seen before) red for the right leg zipper, blue for the left. I also like that there is velcro on the bottom of the pant legs and a zipper which allows the bottoms to be closed around the ankles making them tick proof. I give the pant a thumbs up!
