I bought a pair in Gunmetal last year and the Size 6 was a great fit for my petite height. It was not too long! So, I ordered a Black pair this year and the fit is completely different. The hip area is very tight and the legs are baggy. I just cannot understand why the same size in two different colors can vary so much in fit. Although it is not noted as a petite length, these pants will probably be too short for the average person.

These pants feel very good to the touch and I am sure they are quick dry as well, but the fit leaves much to be desired. The first pair I bought were too baggy and loose so I returned them. The return was seamless and very well organized. Kudos. The next pair I ordered (one size down) were also baggy but I am keeping these since I have no time to go through the return and order another one. It would be helpful to know how wide the bottoms on these pants are before purchasing them.

I purchased two pairs of these pants and they fit differently, even though they were the same size. One was a perfect fit in the waist, the other at least an inch too large. They have very wide legs, the length is decent. I would not purchase more of these, and I was able to add some elastic to the waist of the pair that was too large, so hopefully, they will hold up well. They are not the best quality products, but decent for the money.

Quality was okay but they are extremely high waisted and while I don't mind that, I mind it if doesn't fit over my hips and thighs. I'm an athlete and these are made for someone who does not have quads and who has very narrow hips.

These pants were what I hoped for in most ways. They were very lightweight, with a nice fit and a comfortable length for the shorts part of the convertible pants. They will be suitable for a rafting/hiking trip. The only disappointing part was the overall length which was not 30 inches. The pant length was more like 28" and only be barely manageable for me because I am short and will be wearing them in the summer.

These pants really don't have a cut for women. They are wide at the waist and tight across the buttocks...in other words, a very "straight cut"! I am very disappointed. A larger size would be too big at the waist. I can unzip the front pockets to get a little bit of "ease" but I will probably return them instead.
