Factory Second Traverse II Pant
I have always appreciated 3SP pants and still wear a pair from the mid 90's. These pants are straight legged and I do not find the leg openings to be too wide. They fit well in the waist and hips and are the appropriate length. I think the defect making them a second is a spot on the waistband that looks like it was heated too much, but it should not interfere with its use or longevity. They are perfect for wearing at any time and will be very useful for hiking, xc-skiing and snowshoeing.
Essential Vermont Wardrobe
I wear some sort of 3SP Pant every cold winter day. Traverse pants are for "around town". They are great. Happy to try out a "factory second" from SportHill. I am only giving it 4 stars because:
- looks like I am going to have to SHORTEN these petite Traverse pants (which I have not had to do in the past).
- I wish SportHill offered some colors (I have tan from years ago-lovely). I suggest a sage green or a burgundy.
-Pockets should be a little deeper.
But these pants really are wonderfully warm and functional and also don't look too wonky (like the more active styles), highly recommended for non-skiing/biking activities.
