Seam from the bottom coming off after sigle trek
Used for 1 week or less
Used this pants for only 2 days(summit and next descent) on my himalayan trek and I see the seam from the bottom is coming off. Will be completely useless after another trek. Fabric is good, can handle good cold but weak stitching can cause big trouble.

Mobile phone? Not in these pockets
Used for 3 to 6 months
Many people these days will surely agree that almost every adult will own a mobile phone.

However forget keeping such a device in your Quechua pockets!
The pockets are just about sufficient to hold some car keys, maybe a skinny wallet, but if you have a mobile phone with a screen larger than 5 inches, you won't get the pocket zipped up, don't sit down either as whatever is in your pockets will end up on the floor!

It's a real shame that the pockets almost render these walking trousers unusable for walking.

They are however really comfy but my two pairs are now resigned for DIY use only!

Comfy but otherwise useless
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Not as strong I thought. Tears easily.

quality of product
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
while its clear that proper effort has been put into styling and fabric, the product sewing standard is very poor. AQL must improve.
Very comfortable, could be more strong.
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
It's very comfortable you'll not take it off once it's on. Try it to believe it.
Used for 3 to 6 months
Super product bought several of these pants in different colours.
Great except for one small thing
Used for 3 to 6 months
These are a big improvement on the previous version. I really like the cut, the stretchiness, the reduced weight, wider waistband, the velcro reinforcement on the popper on the waistband. The zip pocket is much better than the old style patch pockets that were held on with tape.

My only minor issue is that I think the front pockets need to be a little bit deeper - as it is it's easy to loose coins out of your pocket if you cross one leg over an other, or put your feet up.
men's mountain hiking trouser MH500
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
The trousers are well designed and functional. One suggestion is that the stitching needs to be stronger . The stitches from the back came out at some places after a single use.
