The North Face Paramount 2.0 Convertible Pant has been around for a long time for good reason. These pants are water resistant, quick drying, versatile, and packed with features. They are great for long backpacking trips or single day hikes, camp life, or even water sports. They scored at or near the top of the pack in all our testing metrics and were only slightly outscored by our Editors' Choice winner, the Marmot Lobo's Convertible Pant. Ultimately it came down to a question of fit and comfort; if you like your pants higher waisted and shorts shorter, then these are the convertible pants to buy. If you prefer a mid-rise pant with a Bermuda-length short, then go with the Lobo's. And if you are looking for a great pant that is less expensive than the rest, our Best Buy winner, the Columbia Saturday Trail Stretch, is also a good choice.
The Women's Paramount 2.0 Convertible Pant look slightly different than when we originally reviewed them. We've been in contact with The North Face, and they confirmed these updates. To learn more, scroll on down!
