Got these pants for the season last year. switched on and off with another pair of pants so these pants got about 30 or so days in last year. absolutely no fading whatsoever, some rips on the bottoms of the legs but no big ones.
heres some pics
bottom picture: as you can see the only noticeable rip is the one on the right leg to the left side of it. theres a closeup on the last picture
The backside of the pants are free of rips and tears.
so as you can see the rip above me is the biggest on the pants and only one on the right leg. I can sew this up as it is a rip that would be very easy to fix as its just the top covering which is very thin.
