Can anyone direct me to a brand or manufacturer of convertible or Zip Off pants in petite sizes ? We can't seem to find them at our local outfitters. I would like to get Madame a pair that are AT durable and quick drying. Thanks.

I usually have luck with REI.com, and some say LL Beam is also good for petite sizes.

I found a great pair of zip-offs last spring. I, too, needed petite. Although they are not petite, Dick's Sporting Goods offered a pair of The North Face that I could shorten with a calf-side button tab. When the pant leg is not cinched up with the tab, they are only a 'teanse' too long. They are quick to dry and very durable. I thought the tiny plastic zippers would break, but are still zipping well. The pocket system is wonderful, zippered cargo on the left, velcro cargo on the right and a rear zip/packable pocket. They are so well designed, I was hoping to find another pair at the end of summer clearances. No luck yet.

Good luck.
