Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hiking pants Bought these with a belt b/c I'm losing weight and wanted to make sure they stayed up! Hubby recently commented on how nice they look. Love the pockets for hiking with keys, dog treats, tissues etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Choice When I ordered these outdoor pants the description recommended that I order a size up. Since I wanted a comfortable fit for outdoor activities I decided to do that. It was a good choice for me. I wanted to be able to enjoy hiking in the outdoors. They are a bit loose but feel good. The fabric is of good quality and the color is a bit lighter than indicated on site and I like the shade very much. The belt would not be my choice but the pants can be worn without it. Overall, I am pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Workaholic Pants I bought these pants because I work in construction and am outside a majority of my days. They are comfortable and breathable, and also very professional looking when I am in the field.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small in waist i bought these for plane travel rather than hiking. Usually a 14 fits perfectly but I exchanged these for a 16 and the waist is still tight. The hips and thighs are loose so these are made for an hour-glass figure. They are really good looking though. Maybe if I hike in them my waist will shrink.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice all purpose pants The only reason these pants score a 4 out of 5 is that they run a little small. I am a size 8 and they are tight but not so tight that I'd want to get a larger size. The material is very nice and light weight, the length is good, and these pants have lots of pockets. They are useful for travel but also for hiking. If they were just a little wider at the bottom, they could be rolled up but that's not the case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! Ordered two pairs - the first one I ordered a size up after reading reviews. They were larger than I normally like so ordered the 2nd pair in my normal size 10. Lots of functional pockets, comfortable waist and nice fabric.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs better pockets I like these pants, I got them because they have a "classic waist". Sadly almost none of your pants have a classic waist any more. I suspect you are going for fashion not function. The pants run small, I had to get the next larger size, but that's OK. The pants fit well. The front pockets are useless, far too small to carry anything at all, not even hands. That's unfortunate, because I'd like to carry things in those pockets when I go exploring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight material Soft and light weight material, great for warm days, fits perfect. Washes well and dries fast. Side pockets are large enough for a phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection. MUST HAVE MORE COLORS! These pants fit better than any pants I've bought in the last 20 years. Amazing! Please please please get them in more colors! I'm 5'11" and bought a size 12L (I'm in between a 10 and 12 usually). The 12 is just perfect--not binding anywhere and not too loose anywhere either. I usually have trouble finding a rise that fits right because I'm long all over--but this is perfect. The fabric is so light that it feels like wearing nothing--perfect for the hot Texas summers. Bonus: makes my rear end look amazing. Can't believe the perfection.
