Strange....I wear them (Reel Legends from Academy) fairly regularly, with and without the legs, and have no problems comfort wise. Light, cool, and dry super fast. Pretty affordable as I recall? Phone, wallet etc. go in a baggie in the console or tackle box, or stay on the beach w/the Mrs. when I'm surf fishing. I just wish they had the mesh inside like a bathing suit, like my Magellan shorts.

Try mountain khakis. They are more expensive but a lot more comfortable.

I have to be on TeaSea side as well. I wear my zipoffs all the time when I`m on the boat. After a few hours and can feel the sun starting to cook my legs so it`s nice to be able to protect them by zipping on the lower leg portion. Also I use them a lot at Port St Joe when coming in at dusk because the no-see-um`s are fierce. As far as uncomfortable, never really noticed.

Would you buy better looking pants without all of the hidden pockets and zip off legs to be more comfortable?

It seems like everybodies fishing pants follow one design. I have about 5 pair from 3 sources and all are about equally uncomfortable.

I'd love to have some cut like "Comfort cut" jeans with regular pockets. Of course, I'd want them made from breathable fabric and have the built in "Package support."

I wear a fishing vest most of the time because I don't want my phone and camera banging down around my knees in the stupid pockets these companies have settled on.

Opinions and suggestions, please. Maybe somebody will make comfortable, good looking pants if we generate a good response.

I'm going to ICASTweek after next and a list of suggestions to manufacturers might get a response.
Ex Officio. Very well made but pricey.

I've always had luck with North Face pants and shorts. Not sure the material, but it's the thin, quick drying material. Two summers ago, I lived in the woods for almost a month. I only took one pair of shorts, (North Face), and they worked great. I owned them for two years prior, and still own them today. Still look good as new. They make the same material in a pants form. Sure they work just as good.

Love my Kuhl dry fit shirts but have never found any of their shorts. Would definitely try them though -- good stuff.
