    Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Camp Cargo Convertible Pants:

    The current version of this product isn't nearly as good as earlier EMS versions. It's still a decent travel pant option, but:

    1) It has fewer pockets than before, and no zippered pocket (good for travel documents, folding money, and other items needing more security).

    2) Earlier version had much deeper main pockets. Apart from being able to carry more, this meant no danger of things falling out by accident when climbing, sitting, squatting, contorting, etc.

    3) Prior version also had a total of 5 front/side pockets; this one has only 4.

    4) The squeeze-to-release buckle on the earlier version could be closed with only one hand; the current buckle requires two hands to position the tabs for closure.

    EMS may have saved some money by changing the design, but the product simply isn't as good as it was before.

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Camp Cargo Convertible Pants:

        this is my second pair of ems zip offs.
        the first ones (perfect) have more front pockets but more importantly, the shorts have about a 7 inch inseam.
        Zip off the new ones and the shorts are rather long.

                Had numerous earlier versions of these EMS pants, all much better. They skimped and ruined a great product. Previous versions had 6 pockets, 2 deep on sides, 2 short with velcro closures & 1 Zippered security. Very disappointed.They skimped on the newer version and ruined a great product. I would much rather they had raised the price and kept the product as it was. I guess I have to check REI and other outdoor companies

                These are great pants that I have been wearing for many years. The one big problem is the mesh pockets. The material rips when you have keys in your pocket. Try to address this issue and your sales will increase.

                The old version was better. Please return secure zippers and deep pockets. EMS do not charge more for a inferior product. As a result, I guess I will be shopping elsewhere.

                Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Camp Cargo Convertible Pants:

                I wear these lounging around the house - they are very comfortable. Good fit but the belt buckle has a tendency to pop open. Looking for a new cloth/nylon belt to match the style of the pants, but the belt loops will only accommodate at most a 1 1/8" wide belt, which is hard to find in a fabric style.

                Upper four pockets are mesh which I worry may tear over time. Lower two pockets are made of the same stronger material as the rest of the pants.

                38" and 40" waist sizes only come in 32" inseam, not 34".

                Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Camp Cargo Convertible Pants:

                As with so much of EMS clothing the effort to increse profit has resulted in a product of diminished functionality and appeal: fewer pockets,
                inferior buckles, pocket depth, pocket material and closure to name a few points. As the products are not particularly "cheap" I can see no reason for this shift in quality. You once had truly great products. Get back to basics!

                My second pair so I knew what I was getting. Workmanship and material mostly good. Felt the belt buckle may not be up to the job. Replaced the belt on my first pair. Easier to replace button than snap.
