Great pants, nice cut, comfortable

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.
