The coupon gives you a nice discount off their regular price of $85, but I'm failing to see why these pants are worth that much.

I'm a fan of convertable pants for backpacking trips, but even my Mountain Hardware pants didn't cost that much.

sierra trading post has the Exofficio convertible pants for $52 + coupons for 20,25, or 30 percent off on top.

the one in the middle gives you free x-ray vision, though. please reconsider before you give up on buying!

You'd have to wear the pants on your head for those to work though. I almost bought them but it would look pretty silly if someone saw me using them.

Oo I thought of a real comment. Wouldn't it look pretty shady while traveling if you were at airport security and pulled all that stuff out of secret pockets in your pants (I didn't read the ad at all. I apologize if the pockets are not secret or otherwise non-shady)

@shavelikeaman: if you buy these, you will be able to travel more easily. For example, I am unable to travel wearing normal clothing. I require a special super-suit to travel.

Not really sure why people are downvoting this so much it's a good deal compared to their regular price. These used to be cheaper though or possibly just better sales. I bought them for about $26 a pair and some other products from them as well. All are really high quality products that I've owned for several years now. The main advantage to their products in the magnetic closures on pockets, the giant amount of pockets, and the design being set up so you can have all the pockets full without them over lapping or making giant bulges in your pants.

@ikisat: Great! When they're $26 again, I'll buy a few!

i love pockets, and scottevest, i don't get the ratings here

Waaaaay over priced! I thought it was three pairs for that price; when I noticed it was only one I headed on over to REI to pay full price. This is no deal.

These would make excellent "bus pants" for Sheldon, especially since they are Teflon treated for stain resistance.

It seems to me there are basically two types of convertible pants - pricey ones like these and cheap ones that are typically sized only by waist size and/or S/M/L/XL. I have tried the cheap ones several times, and for someone like me with longer legs have always been disappointed. I assume shorter people also might be disappointed with cheap pants that are too long. These may be pricier, but looking at the more expensive pants out there, this seems a decent deal, and they can be ordered in 30", 32", or 34" inseams. If you're an average size guy, go get the cheap ones, but if you're tall or short, these might just be a good option.

When I originally saw the image of the x-ray view, I thought it was new technology to hide your "junk" from the airport security body scanners... I guess that would probably throw other red flags if it was the case...

SeV products make a lot of sense when we're talking something you can take off at the TSA Checkpoint and avoid the process of emptying your pockets. (Too bad your shoes still have to come off.)

Unfortunately, this is not the case wtih SeV pants. Taking off your pants before the TSA does not make sense. Unless, of course, it's part of a protest against the TSA while engaging in subordinate actions.

"How dare you do this to me? I'm going to stand up for my Constitutionally-defended rights by removing my pants, but I will use that opportunity to submit to your demands!"

Don't even get me started on the boxer shorts SeV offers...

I own a few pairs of these. very light weight. i got these used (yes used.. lol) on ebay for about $25 inc s&h.
i like them but they're not as handy as you might think.

Wouldn't magnetic closures on the pockets set off alarms at airports and make it harder to travel? My BFF has a pair of pants with zip-off legs that he takes when we go on cruises, so he will have something to wear to formal night. It's the closest thing to "big boy" pants he's willing to take on vacation. These are way too expensive and I object to paying $10 to ship unbreakable objects of modest size and minimal weight.

vote-for2vote-against

@moondrake: Mine have never set off any alarms at airports or any other metal detector etc. I've had these for about 7-8 years now and the anti stain stuff still works, the anti wrinkle stuff still works, there is no worn spots on them yet. If you get the non convertible version they just look like dress slacks even when your pockets have more stuff in them than most cargo pants can carry so they're really useful for business or semi formal environments when you're working and need to carry extra stuff.

I've had not-zip-off scottvest pants for a couple years. They are good quality and have held up well. I do find them comfortable to travel with and it's nice to have extra and more organized pockets. They will neither help nor hinder through TSA. But then, the only thing that would help would TSA would be to disband it. You still need to empty your pockets and it won't set off their alarms by itself. Cargo shorts will carry just as much stuff (what I mostly wear on travel) but don't look as formal. I do like having the option of wearing somewhat dressy pants while travelling and still carrying all my junk. (I find I often will get treated better in slacks than in shorts, as silly as that is).

Meant to add, $85 seems high to me as well, but $50 seems reasonable (about as much as good zip-offs I've gotten at REI in the past)

Plus, it's $10 shipping folks. If I'm spending $51 on something that can be packed that small, I will not buy it if I have to pay $10 shipping. That there is ridiculous.

A lot of people complaining about price. Please link same item at better price.

Thank you.

I was given a "running shirt" from this company. I have to say, it's one of the worst-made pieces of clothing I've ever seen. The seam quality is terrible, (keep opening up) and all the features are very poorly thought out. I think this company's whole shtick is trying to make mall-ninja-ism more geekish, i.e. extra holsters etc... And what's with their tendency to use magnets for closures? Some of us still use harddrives, you know. (end of rant)

Convertible pants? How in the heck do you put the top down on PANTS??!

vote-for3vote-against

the xray thing totally confused me.

I thought they were TSA friendly so like you didnt have to take stuff out of your pockets cause they could see them or something. You know like special bags they have for laptops now ?

Of course now that I have put that in writing it makes me look pretty stupid but ...

This seems more practical: https://www.rufusroo.com/shop/
Albeit just as silly looking. Since your coat doesn't count as a carry-on, this essentially gives you a free extra bag. And you can take it off easily for screening.

Aw yeah, top down for the breeze, you can really feel the wind in your hair. Wait...
