      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Camp Cargo Zip-Off Pants:

      Why would you make a 38 short but not a 30 short? And while you're at it, how about even a 28 or 29 inch inseam rather than the "short" 30 inch? I'd like pants that don't drag on the ground behind me.

      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Camp Cargo Zip-Off Pants:

      I liked the two pair I bought in 2008. I just picked up 3 pair of 2009 and found out that the pockets had been moved to the side and one zip pocket removed. Also the cut of the front slash pockets had been changed so that hands get hung up accessing them. It took me a while to figure what was different there. Today I had to sew the pantleg back to the zipper on a pair of my (good)2008 pants where the stitching just fell apart - pretty shoddy there. The 2008 design was better, but I am sure the 2009s were cheaper to produce. No fun finding the undesirable changes after the purchase. I will just have to stop using EMS as a go to supplier.

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Camp Cargo Zip-Off Pants:

        I used to love these pants, but the design changed. The pockets are too shallow and wind blows though the zippers on the zip off legs. Could have handled the shallow pockets. They are great in how they dry. Love the built in belt.

            I love these zip-offs, but only have one pair in 30 shorts and can't find any more at any stores. You haven't stopped making them, have you? Please keep 'em coming. Thanks!

            Please make pants like these for WOMEN

            By pocket-loving woman

            from eastern US

            Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Camp Cargo Zip-Off Pants:

            I wish these pants fit me! I want convertible cargo pants with large, useful pockets above the leg zipper in a design that's shaped for the average woman's body. Your single option of convertible pants for women fails in this regard. Please give us more options, like you do for men.

              Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Camp Cargo Zip-Off Pants:

              These pants are much better than more expensive pairs I have bought from other manufacturers and more established brands. In my opinion:

              -The quality of construction is much higher - particularly the clean stitching, which makes zipping and unzipping the leg extensions very easy. The fabric feels both heavier and softer than my other pairs.
              -I like having the secure zip pocket under the cargo area. When the secure pocket is up toward the side/seat of the pants, I end up sitting on the items (which is bad if you've got sunglasses in there).
              -The waistband and belt are superior to those on other similar pants that I own.

              That said, I would change a few things:
              -I prefer a button to a snap closure. You can always resew a button if it falls off.
              -A more tapered fit. These can get baggy, particularly if you're tall and slim.

              Still, great quality and stitching, and really good value.

                I have used these for years and rue the day that you made it difficult to impossible to get these in black. Please make this available again. Please, please.

                Love the granite colour. Great zippers, great wearing pant.

                Keep up the superb work. This is the best hiking pant up the mountain besides Mountain Hardware.

                  Second pair of convertible pants that I own, and I actually like these better. The zippers are of good quality which is something I don't usually like about the leg zippers. I used these casually during travel in Greece this fall. They stood up to some bouldering, dried quickly after jumping into a fountain and some small puddles... haha.

                  Only con was that the granite, is more blue than gray. That aside, good pants overall... average priced.

                    Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Camp Cargo Zip-Off Pants:

                    I had been buying your "EMS Adventure Zip-Off Pants" for several years and loved them, especially for airline travel. Since you no longer carry them I tried the profile zip-off pants as a replacement. I REALLY dislike them. They are "clingy", and the cargo pockets are on the side instead of the front so I look like a clown if I put anything in those pockets. The zipper pocket is in a bad spot, and the webbed pocket lining is annoying. You had a fantastic product, now I guess I need to find a new brand.
