I have worn ExOfficio Begs Away for several years. They do as advertised. With out the use of noxious sprays, they keep ticks and chigger bites to a minimum, if I get any at all. Not only that, they fit so well, I am tempted to wear them for everyday use, but must reserve them for when I am in the w... Read More

    This pants feel pretty durable (for womens pants) and have a good amount of pockets. I generally wear a size L in pants, and the 14 fits me pretty good. The only issue I have with these is the legs are pretty wide. I almost feel like I am wearing bell bottoms! But, they are a good, sturdy pair of hiking pants.

    I'm 5'9" and ordered a size 6. They were so long, even with boots on, that they dragged on the ground and became soaked by the wet grass I was walking in. I tried rolling them up, but they are quite lightweight and wouldn't stay rolled. I just took the time to shorten them enough for me, but there's a limit to how much you can shorten them because of the zippers. Otherwise, they are nice & comfortable. No bugs the day I wore them, so can't say how that feature works.

    I've been looking for a good pair of quick-dry convertible pants for hiking. I ordered these in both size Small and Medium. For reference I am 5' 7" and weigh an athletic 143 pounds. My hips are 38" and waist is 30". I found myself right between two sizes. I liked the smalls best as the mediums were too loose and baggy around my hips and waist (with a gap at the back of my waist...which in truth is something that I struggle with). The size smalls were pretty fitted but worked best while I was just standing. As soon as I tried to lift my legs (like climbing up a steep hill) the pants became a bit restricting. There is not much give to the fabric. That said though, the thing that I REALLY disliked about these pants is a common problem with trail pants...the bottoms, although the right length for me, were HUGE. Why so much fabric down there? Who wants to hike in bell bottoms? The picture shown does not make the pants appear to be this way...but believe me...they are. I very soon after found a brand that is new to me (from Europe) that I LOVE...nice stretchy fabric and just the right amount of space in the ankles...so these went back.

    Very nice - as others have indicated, the length is much too long for average length pant. I had planned to take them on a trip, but was unable to do so as I will have to have the length altered if I am to wear them.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by plein air painter from Pennsylvania on Sunday, August 21, 2016
    I had a pair of these that I bought 8 years ago to wear plein air painting in marshes and tall grass. They've been great pants - not only kept bugs at bay, but were loose and cool. I was hoping to replace them with a new pair, same size. Unfortunately the fit/cut has changed. The same product is now more slim fit, which I suppose is more popular but doesn't work for me. They also eliminated the rear pockets (which were great for cell phone) and added a rear yoke seam which puts bulges in all the wrong places. Very unflattering. I returned these.
