Not the best on an apple figure either

I can see where these might not work well on curvy ladies with hips, but I thought they might work for me. I still sized up because I expect issues with the waist, but the first pair I received were overall too big through the midsection. The drawstring helped some, but the sizing through the hips was still a problem. I exchanged those for one size down. While the smaller pants fit better in the hip and through the legs, they were tighter in the waist than I would prefer and they didn't look right across the belly. The side pockets wouldn't lay flat which made the pants look altogether dumpy. There was no give in these pants when I raised my knee up. On the plus side, these were available in a short length which would have made the pants work for me if not for the waistline. These are going back, too. Recently, I also ordered The North Face Paramount Peak Pants - UPF 30, DWR, Convertible (For Women) in the same size as the first pair of Tempest pants I bought. The waist of the Paramount Peak pants fit fine and the length is okay. There is a lot of volume in the legs of those pants and they are loud, but I'm dealing with it. I'll be glad in the winter when I can easily throw on some thermals under them. Still in search of a nice-fitting pair of hiking pants at a modest price.
