Great pants with some fit issues

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Reba the Mail Lady from SFBA on Friday, December 26, 2014
These pants *mostly* meet my expectations. So far, after a few weeks bike commuting and landscaping in heavy rain, I've stayed dry. The inseam measurement is true to size. HOWEVER, buying one size shorter would help keep the bottom of the pant legs off the ground. I wear a 30 inseam normally and wish I had bought the 28. The Velcro waist adjustment can help with this some. If you look closely at the picture, you'll see there's a plastic rectangle that the adjustment strap loops through. The short end of the rectangle does not stay put and upright as pictured. This adds about 2 inches on to the shortest possible waistband size. I wear a womens' size 6-10 waist (vanity sizing is all over the place these days) and the medium keeps riding down. Since these pants are otherwise great and I look forward to years of use as with most Carhartt items I own, I'll need to do some sewing to tack down the rectangle and adding Velcro to the strap to keep from treading on the leg bottoms.
