These pants fit me perfect. They are comfortable, water resistant and quite stylish compared to other common baggier designs. I'm 6ft 2 195 and the 36 waist with long inseam is perfection. The waist area is comfortable as well and does not bunch up when I pull the belt tight. I purchased the grey and the tan colored version. I'm hoping TNF comes out with more colors soon. I rocked these on a recent trip to Peru and they did not let me down. Water and other liquids bead right off. The quality of the material is great for the price. Buy these if you hate the baggier Paramount 2 look and you won't be dispapointed.

Poorly DESIGN pants, I had the Paramount Peak Ii Convertible Pants, it is a great pair of pants, except too baggy for me, so I exchanged for this Paramount 3.0. BIG Mistake, this is the worst pants I ever had. The Zippers exposed, easily get caught and angle up with anything along hiking trail. How can this designers get hired? extremely disappoint with this piece of junk.

Comments about The North Face Straight Paramount 3.0 Convertible Pant Men's, Dune Beige, 36:

I've been buying the original paramount trail pants for construction work for for the last 5-6 years. love the fit and durability. 5 pairs usually lasts me 12-18 months of hard use. I've been having a hard time finding the regular fit in large long, I'm 6'4'' 240. I desided to go to the north face store near me to try the 3.0 paramount and was disappointed how small they are. A 36 long felt good in the waste but were too short and once they shrink a little like all of them do, some colors more than others, I'd be wearing floods. Wish they would offer a extra long in the slim fit or continue making the regular fit. Hope I don't have to find a different brand...

    My husband literally only wares Parmount Peak original and II pants...had we known they were going away we would have hoarded them! ..he is a landscaper and avid outdoorsman and the peak II's held up to it all...these pants were one of a kind perfection...light weight and extremely durable with a masculine fit...very upsetting to find that the fabric has been replaced in the 3.0 by a thinner material and the fit is more feminine...like every other nylon pair of convertible pants on the market..please bring back the Paramount Peak II fit and fabric!!!

        Excellent pants. I find "outdoor" pants are always too short and these came in a long that was the main reason I considered them. Once I tried them on I realized these were by far the best convertible pants I have worn. The fit is amazing and comfortable; they look really good as well. I find most pants are way too baggy than what is needed. Wish they had more Long pants available; would definitely purchase more.

        This is a nice pair of pants, but nothing like the Paramount Peak II Convertible.
        The lose fit is gone and so are most of the pockets. I hope the Paramount Peak II Convertible will stay in production.

            I now have two of these pants. I bought my first pair for a backpacking trip to Peru 9 years ago. I still wear those pants, even though they have many many miles on them. These pants are more expensive than other convertible hiking pants, but they are completely worth the increase in cost if you use them. Even though they are lightweight, they are tough. They are particularly good for traveling, because they are 4 pants in one: shorts, hiking pants, day pants, and you can even get away with wearing them to dinner, if you wear a nice shirt.

These pants meet and exceed all of my expectations. I liked the first pair I bought so much that I bought another pair in a different color.

I like the sun protection, water resistance and quick dry. I'd love to buy every color. I highly recommend these pants but if you wear a 32 long, good luck, they're no where to be found - my only complaint.

                  Being a short stalky guy it's very difficult to find hiking/climbing gear that fits. It seems that everything is geared towards guys that are tall and rail thin. These pants are a gift from heaven. Most hiking pants are baggy and too long for me, but these fit perfectly. North Face is one of the only major brands that accommodates shorter hikers. The shorts are a little short, but I'm not sure why someone reviewed these as too tight. I have pretty thick legs, and these fit great. They are more streamline then past models, but that's what I like about them.

                          Comments about The North Face Straight Paramount 3.0 Convertible Pant Men's, Dune Beige, 36:

                          Had convertible north face pants previously (not sure what model) and loved them. I unfortunately forgot them on a ski trip. In any case this version of the pants is not great. The shorts end in the middle of my thighs. We are talking hot pants shorts. The entire thigh is very tight and so is the feel around the knees and I feel like I'm skinny. I can't think of anyone's legs I know that has any type of athletic build that would fit this. I ordered a 36 Long and the inseam is about 3" short compared to the other north face pants I have (same sizing). There's also fleece like material about 2.5 to 3" around the entire waste section on the inside. It feels really odd and would just be an awful sweaty mess in any warmer conditions.
