For me, pants are highly overrated. I generally spend my time either in the tropics or enjoying the short but sweet summer in Canada. On top of that, one of my favourite daily modes of transport is by bicycle. That said, shorts are the way to go. This deal was cutting off and hemming an old pair of North Face pants that rarely got used. A local Lao seamstress did it in 5-10 minutes and I must say it looks professional. The cost was a mere 10,000 Lao kip ($0.82 CAD).
