These are awesome pants. I wear them all the time for hiking and work. Very comfortable and versatile. The fabric has held up extremely well to rather abusive elements that have failed other thicker fabric jeans. The only problem I've had with them is the stitching around the pockets have come undone, and one of the zippers on the lower pockets broke completely. I also truly appreciate the tall sizes that Eddie Bauer offers, being 6'8" it's rather hard to find quality clothing that fits.
