I am 5'8", 140 pounds with an athletic build (not muscular, lean) and purchased these in a light blue size 8. They are a perfect length and fit. Speaking of the fit, it is really different than other hiking pants out there, very fitted with a narrow leg. But, while other, more generously cut pant... Read More

    I am yet to wear these, but will make a note about the sizing. The light metal colour (pale grey/green) runs small. The size 4 fits me, but are a little tighter than I would like around the backside and thighs for these sort of pants. I am 5'6", 118 lb, 35" hip, 27" waist. I would normally wear size 0 or 2 depending on brand. The waist has a some elastic in the back which helps the fit and they sit a few inches below the waist.

    In contrast, the Exofficio damselfly pants (another anti-bug model) are huge. I have size 4 in those and can pull them down without undoing the closure.

    These are nice pants and long enough for my 33-34 inseam, which is hard to find They just weren't a good fit for me-- big enough for my rather large thighs, but WAY too big in the waist-- maybe 3 inches!

    These pants it amazingly. They accommodate a larger buttox and have enough give without being classified as "stretchy." Haven't tested them with bug infested areas, but I will be using them in the Everglades here this Spring.

    After reading many reviews about running small I was persuaded into sizing up. I bought the grill color in a size 6R. My waist is a 28 and my hips are a 36 so again, based on reviews I erred on the larger size. They were huge on me. I could put them on and take them off with them snapped and zipped. I returned them and got a size 4R (the size I would have initially bought in the first place). The 4R fit perfectly with plenty of length. I'm 5'7". The bungee cord at the bottom was wonderful for nights around the campfire with all sorts of insects crawling about. When I was hiking with my pack on I would roll down the waist once so that softer fabric was against my hips as opposed to the scratchier mesh . I found this kept my hip skin from getting irritated. The pockets are nice and deep and they have one zippered pocket. The only true negative about them is that the waist snap comes unsnapped when you're sitting and bend over. They do not fit tightly around my waist, yet they still come unsnapped. I would buy them again.

    I have several pairs of Columbia pants and those are my favorites. I tried these and they just don't have enough "give"...The waist is quite small compared to other Columbia types. I returned them.

    • Answer Yes a phone would fit in the pocket. However, like other reviews have said, these are more form fitting than most hiking pants, so depending on how long you're hiking it might not be the most comfortable.

    • Answer There is a narrow zipper pocket on the right leg, and a velcro hip pocket, plus the normal hand pockets. A smart phone would fit in any of them. This is a slim fitting pant, I wear a 6, and have two pairs of these. They are flattering and comfortable. I get them when there is a 40% coupon through Facebook:)

    • Answer There is a fairly deep zippered pocket on the right leg at about mid-thigh that comfortably holds my iPhone 5.

    • Answer They're not technically pants with a cargo pocket, but there is a secondary, zip-top pocket that can easily hold a smart phone. It holds our iPhone 3 with plenty of room to spare.

    • Answer The zippered pocket on the right thigh does hold my iPhone 5 with no trouble.
