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

    Pants fit perfectly, with a bit extra length on me (I'm 5'4") to stay tucked into even low boots, I live in deer tick country, and these are just what I wanted for gardening and lawn care duties - right down to the soft green color that's pretty and also makes any critters visible.. . . also light-weight enough to be bearable in summer.

    Perfect weight for a 92 degree day of gardening. Kept the ticks and mosquitos at bay. I needed to order a size up to be comfortable kneeling.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jann in Loomis from California on Sunday, July 27, 2014
    Other reviewers talked about the lack of "give" to the pants, and how small the leg openings are. I found this true, also. I like a little more give in my pants. However, the length is great, even though I'm about 5'4". Mosquitoes generally love my ankles and they're easy to cover and cinch tight with the closures. The little buggers won't have a way in - and the bug repellency should keep them away anyway. I'm living in dengue country and want to take every precaution when I go on bird walks. Probably won't want to do climbing/altitude hiking in them given the little give in the fabric, but flatter ground won't be a problem. And I'll have them ready for dawn and dusk no matter what kind of a hike or walk I'm on.

    The pants do keep the chiggers and ticks off...have not had one bite since I have been wearing the pants out to garden.
    However, they are not the best fit. The description said ample leg room and that is not what I found. They fit snug and have no stretch or give. I am 5'3', 150 lbs and bought a size 8. The waist is so loose I need a belt to keep them up when I put any weight on the waist band (like my phone or pruning shears) ...or a knife in the pocket.. For those of us outdoors who would wear these pants, have "stuff" in our pockets.
    Also, the small pocket on the left side is very small and does not hold much more than a packet of seeds.

    Lightweight, great color.

    Unfortunately, the sizing seemed way off. I'm usually a small or size 4 and the 4 was way too tight in the thighs/butt. I found these pants (or v similar) in a store and they were huge. I'm 5'3", 120-125#.

    • 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.

    • Answer Yes. I can put a 7" tablet in the pocket.
