I can't say enough good about these leggings. I took them on a 4 week archaeology project on the BC coast where I would be crawling through the bush (think salal, devil's club). After weeks of wearing these leggings almost daily as my field pants they look as good as when I first got them. No snags, no tears. In fact I managed to cut my leg on a tree and the pants were totally fine, not a mark. They were also super quick drying - I routinely had to jump into water to catch the boat and they dried so fast I never had to change pants. I am beyond impressed with these leggings. And they were indeed very light and easy to pack out with my gear. I can't wait for some lighter colours, as the black was a bit warm. But I can't recommend them enough.
Omg!!! I absolutely love these Pack-light tights. Super comfy, fit well and I love the high waistband!!! It stays in place, no rolling or sliding down. Two side pockets are deep and easy to access. My go to for hiking!!!
