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

    These are a good fit for me as the waist is roomy and the rise is higher than most pants these days. I wish they also had back pockets but the pockets are a good size. Good for hiking when the temp. Is hot but the biting insects are bad.

    As usual Sierra Trading Post did a fantastic job of getting the order right and sending it just as requested. I've bought three pair of these pants previously (over a three year period) and they are comfortable and do exactly as stated. They also do look pretty good for casual hiking pants and I've had great results with the bug shield part. This time I ordered the same size I have gotten in the past, a size 12 and I'm 5'5" and weigh about 138. The previous pair (s) fit perfectly and I had ordered up a size (12) since I usually wear a 10 and the reviews said they ran small.. The new ones I just received were very loose so I measured with a tape measure. They are larger than the ones ordered in the past. Since I love the pants, I decided to keep the larger ones and use them for working around the property and ordered another pair, size 10, and hope they fit. Good value for the money and great pants to hike the trails.

    Months ago, I read all the reviews for this pant saying it ran small, and I ordered 2 sizes up. The pants fit perfectly and I was happy with them. Recently, they added more colors, and I ordered the same size in the "grill" color and they were HUGE. I wondered if it was a fluke, so I sent them back and exchanged for one size down--still too big. So, apparently the "grill" color fits true to size while the "light metal" fits 2 sizes too small. Most people shop this site for the discounted prices. However, it's not really a bargain anymore when you factor in the cost of sending the item back twice. Same pant, same manufacturer, same size--wildly varying fit. I haven't decided if I'm going to return or exchange yet again. Very frustrating.

    I ordered these because I needed some long pants for hiking in Nicaragua that were actually long enough for my 33 inch inseam and that weren't horrifically ugly like many hiking pants are known to be. These fit the bill as far as I can tell. I can't attest to the bug shield just yet, but I hope they work because I will be hiking in the jungle in these and the mosquitoes in Central America during rainy season are aggressive.

    A few notes about sizing. Based on the reviews, I sized up. I'm usually and 8-10 and I ordered a 12 so that I would be sure it fit over my thighs and rear. For reference, I'm an athletic build, 5'8'', 170 pounds, my waist measures 32 inches, and I'm 44 inches at the largest part of my hips. The size 12 provides a comfortable fit around my hips and thighs, there is plenty of room to move around which is important because these have very little stretch to them. They are quite large in my waist (they would fall down if I let them), but I probably couldn't have sized down and had the ease of movement with the size 10 around my thighs. I just put a belt on with them and now they sit comfortably at my hips.

    The best part is the length! These are almost too long on me, but they have the draw string elastic cord around the ankles that, when fastened, not only makes the pants the perfect length, but also highlights how cute of a cut they are in the leg. I recommend these for taller girls, but if you have curves, size up and get a good belt.

    • 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.
