Rated 4 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lightweight protective pants Even if you aren't going fishing in these pants, they are great for traveling, hiking and just wearing around town. Very breathable, quick drying and lightweight. Comfortable waist band with elastic on sides, belt loops can accommodate a 1 1/2" wide belt and one zipper close pocket on the thigh to lock in those valuables. Very stylish fit. The fabric tends to snag easily if you get too close to briars on the shore, however, in spite of that, I liked them so much that I ended up getting 3 pairs in various colors. July 29, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by If you want to look fat ... I read another review that said she'd found a pair that didn't make her look like a chunky old lady just getting off the bus on her tour, but honestly, that's just what they made me look like. Maybe you need to be straight up and down but I looked hideous in these. They are being returned pronto. July 27, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by convertible pants While others had said they run large, I did not find that to be the case. I did the measurements exactly as instructed and they were too tight to wear. April 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Purchase These pants are exactly what I was looking for. I'm 5'7', wear 10 - 12 and purchased the Large; they fit great. I was actually waiting for my reward points to post on my acct. to order another pair for our Yosemite camping trip this summer! February 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Lightweight Pants for Hiking I have purchased a XS and a S in these pants. I am 5'3, 115 lb. The pants are great. The material is excellent as it is lightweight. The zipoff bottoms work well and zip on & off smoothly in my experience. I find the XS pants are more fitted to my waist, hips and legs to the point that I ordered a size up, the Small, so that there would be more fabric 'give' as when I hike and I'm ascending, I don't want the fabric to fit so snugly around my thighs & calves, as the XS pant does. With the Small size, I do need a belt as the waist is looser than the XS. Reading another review, the reviewer found the XS too large for her. I guess it all depends on your body type, weight distribution, & what sort of 'feel' you like against your lower body with the pants when hiking/fishing/camping/etc. October 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good for the purpose The PFG line runs big and I wish this was a whole lot smaller. The XS is super large and if I didn't wear a belt they would be at my knees. Wish they had more elastic or adjust at the waist. The leg is cut a little fuller than I like. Inspite of that I bought the pants as they are perfect match for fishing in warm conditions. Be sure you have a belt and you will enjoy these. September 17, 2014
