World Wide Sportsman Hybrid Angler Pants for Men
hybrid angler pant
I have purchased 20+ pairs of these pants since 2005. Size LG inseam 30". Previously, best pants on the market. Just bought a pair recently, tried them on, returned for a refund. The new design changes are terrible. (1) The pockets are only half the depth (2) No mesh liner, not good for zip-off pant/shorts (3) Tapered legs from inseam down, very uncomfortable for outdoor activities. I will not purchase another pair with the current design, also I will not recommend these to anyone. You ruined a good product. Unbelievable!!!

Great Buy !
I had been looking for lightweight pants that were very good in extremely hot weather (AZ). I saw these slacks before the holidays and ordered a pair.
I examined them after they arrived and immediately ordered 2 more pairs of different colors.
The elastic waist band is very comfortable and what several people complained about in their reviews, pockets being too tight, I found to be great. At least you know nothing will slip out of your pocket.
One last thing. Just above the knee where the zippers attach to the lower section of the pant legs, the material bunches up and feels uncomfortable when walking. That is my only negative, otherwise they are truly a good buy.

They used to be a very good product But then last year they stopped putting in the mesh lining,and they also made the pockets smaller so now thing fall out of them,do not understand Why they change some that was perfect, I will not buy another pair until they go back to the way they were.

I am a long time customer and fan of Bass Pro Shop but I am quite disappointed in the changes they have made to these pants. I bought a couple pair a few years ago and loved them for many outdoor activities like fishing, boating, kayaking, hiking, camping because they were light weight, versatile, comfortable and fast drying. I was fortunate to lose 25 pounds over the winter so the pairs I had became too big. I gave them to a friend with rave reviews and ordered a new pair in the needed smaller size. When they arrived I found the cargo pockets no longer had pleats in them so they only hold flat items comfortably, the crotch is no longer gusseted so the comfort and range of motion is restricted, they don't come with the web belt anymore which was good for water uses because it could get wet and dry easily, and the biggest disappointment was the mesh vented leg zippers are gone which eliminated the leg venting feature and easy slip on/off over shoes. These used to be full featured, excellent pants, now they are only OK pants. What a shame. I will get by with them but I really miss the features that were eliminated probably to save costs. I would be willing to pay $5.00 more to have those features back. Even at $5.00 more they would be a great value.
