Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Trailhead Pants, Inseam Options:

I purchased three pairs of these pants for hiking Glacier National Park MT and fly-fishing Missouri, Blackfoot, Bitterroot rivers. They were perfect for wet wading and allowed freedom of movement. The pants were the best I have found for fly fishing and would be perfect for a tropical destination. The only downside I see is the skippered pocket located on the left leg. It is uncomfortable to carry anything in it and, it looks ridiculous. Without it you could get away with wearing it to work before an evening activity.

Great overall, but for a few details

  • Bad Seam Placement
  • Uncomfortable Belt Loops

Best Uses

Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Trailhead Pants, Inseam Options:

After trying these pants out on a three-day backpacking trip, I have to say I'm very impressed with them overall, I just have issues with a few minor details. On the plus side, the pants are very comfy, the stretch fabric gives great freedom of movement, and once wet (we had a full day of rain) they dry in just an hour or two. I had a few issues, all minor, however. First, the seam below the diagonal slash pocket on the left thigh creates a chafe point every time I take a high step; there's really no need for a seam there (or, for that matter, the silly thigh pocket in the first place... I can't imagine using it for anything at all). Also, the belt loops creates noticeable bumps under my waist belt; it would be great to see a version of this pant without belt loops, as most people don't wear a belt under a hiking pack anyway, and the stretchy waist creates a good fit. Not a big deal, I'll most likely just remove them myself.

      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Trailhead Pants, Inseam Options:

      I've only worn them one day out on a cycling adventure but so far they're great. Stretch material was cool and comfortable. No chafing, convenient pockets. Fit is perfect - availability of short inseam length is awesome. I like the drawcord design at the hem. They don't look obviously like nylon pants though we'll see how they hold up after a lot of wear and washings. They definitely make swishing sounds when you walk.

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Trailhead Pants, Inseam Options:

          I cycle to work and my work is handyman service. Therefore, these pants work great because they are light, breathable and wicking on and off the bicycle and then are very comfortable to work and move about in especially because the very functional/generous pockets hold my pliers or snips or most of many tools/screws/etc., to which I need easy access.

            Great quality product. Oneof the few products out there offering a "short" inseam of 28". I bought these for my high school age son who had grown out of the Lands End cargo pants for kids. This is a great "grown up" version. The pockets are great and the pants are so functional and yet still look up to date.

              Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Trailhead Pants, Inseam Options:

              I bought 2 pair of pants of different styles from EMS the same day. The other pair seems to fit more like other brands of the same waist size. This pair seemed to run a little tighter. I try to stick to brands with a consistent fit so I can order with confidence. I like EMS products, but the fit does not seem to be consistent. That being the case, I won't order over the internet again.

              The pants are great for hiking, but the sizing is just off. I usually wear a 29" or 30" waist, so I ordered a 30". It feels more like a 32". The worst part is that EMS doesn't make anything smaller, so there's nothing I can get that will actually fit me.

                Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Trailhead Pants, Inseam Options:

                These are my go-to pants for hiking, trekking, and working outside. They stay cool in the heat and warm in the cold, they dry quickly, and they don't constrict my movement. I think the diagonal pocket is great; I use it for my phone, for trail maps, and for anything else that I need easy access to but can't afford to risk losing. I tore them on some branches and stitched them up so I could continue wearing them. The only (minor) downside I've noticed is that, after a couple years of heavy use, the cargo pocket stitching started to come apart but that was a simple fix.
