This product was exactly what I was looking for! The legs unzip to become shorts and there are many pockets, velcro and zips on these light weight trousers. I bought these for camping on my Duke of Edinburgh Expedition and wore them at the campsite after and whilest cannoeing. When they got wet, they dried as I was wearing them within 10 minutes in the sun. The only downside to these is that there were no navy trousers in my size and I ended up geting 2 black ones, instead of one each.
