I've been keeping my eyes out for a pair of good multi-use pants for daily wear and hiking. A couple years ago I switched uniform pants to a 5.11 brand which is 65/35 blend which I find much more comfortable than my cotton blue jeans. Plus they have shown almost no wear given their age. Just a little to dressy/uniform for every day wear. A lot of the hiking pants out there are well made and I'm sure they are comfy but the prices are through the roof and durability is sacrificed for light weight. Any suggestions? I'm typically a blue jean guy off duty but I would like to slowly transition my wardrobe to pants that won't kill me if I' stuck outdoors in them in inclement weather...
