    I saw these convertible pants today at Costco. I would’ve bought them if I didn’t already own a similar pair.

    I rode the last day of Kokopelli 2 years ago from the top of the mountain down to Moab in convertible pants. My clothing choice worked out quite well to cover the temperature range. :thumbsup:

    Hey.. The Rwanda ride we did 2 years ago I was running late plus I was excited about riding 50 miles for the first time ever on a mountain bike. I had my helmet, gloves, protein bars and water bottles in my hands dashing out through our kitchen to the garage to open the garage door up only to realize I was in my Baleaf underware. No pants. " Close one!" I said to myself. " Steve! Don't forget to put on your riding pants before going out in public-" Haha.

    I own a few pairs of different brands. Can probably count on one hand the number of times I've worn them. They seemed like a great idea at the time but if its cold enough to put pants on, I have warmer pairs that I tend to put on.

    In product marketing research, the deathknell you never wanted to hear in focus groups was "this would be great to take camping!" What that meant was (1) people didn't think it was appropriate for everyday and (2) they would buy it once, and never use it.

    I've bought 3 pairs from a few years ago. They are decent as pants, but not that great as shorts. The fabric is not soft
    nor breathable and without the legs, the zippers are annoyingly bulky. The inseam is 2" shorter than my normal shorts (Zoic Black Markets),
    they give off that aussie outback vibe. I should've started w/ just 1 pair...

    LOL, yup. Seems like all the new covid hikers were sporting a pair. Hopefully they'll be back in the gyms and malls once vaccinated.

    Buy just 1 of anything at Costco?!? Is that possible? I found that I really liked the shorts they had last summer.. So I bought 8 pair. #CreatureofHabit.

    I think I'm going to give these a try... I have the Specialized pants that I wear as San Gabes armor. They're even decent on hot days, but alternatives are nice to have. In a couple weeks, the Gabrielino is going to be covered in poison oak. Shorts are not advised...

    The need to hoard is especially strong since I wear size 30 and rarely find anything anywhere in 30.

    I have 4 pairs of the hybrid shorts.

    Really?Who's your pants guy? j/k.
    It's been a while since I've bought pants in person but I've never had issues finding size 30/31.

    I just can’t do the convertible pants...I understand the appeal, but they just don’t look right on me-I think it’s my high school yearbook basketball team photo, with me in those awesome booty shorts from 1986-it seared my eyeballs.

    I bring my roadie leg warmers on backpack trips instead. And I hike in mtb shorts. I realize that the shorts-and-tights look isn’t exactly less dorky than the convertible pants look. But it works, while making use of what’s already in my closet.

    Sounds about right. I bought some to use on an 8 day paddle trip on The Grand Canyon. They never came out of my gear bag and were on my closet floor from July 2017 until we moved last December. I forgot I ever bought them.

    The only remaining question: who is doing the changing? The pants, or the wearer? :)
