Bought my size, too small.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Trillium AT2014 from Pennsylvania on Thursday, June 2, 2016
I am a backpacker, 155 lbs, 5' 7" and wear a size 8 in pants, and I have large thighs and a full derriere. Reviews said these pants were true to size, so I bought my typical size. They are much too tight everywhere, and I will be exchanging them, for the next size up. I hope the 10 fits, as the styling is nice: I wanted zip-ankles for taking the legs on/off over boots, and these are getting increasingly hard to find. The lower pockets are rather "hidden" so these pants are useful without looking like I'm headed on safari (although I am). A little elastic in the back waistband allows for easy bending, (although articulated knees would have been nice, also) very lightweight, so great for backpacking. No superfluous belt, although there are loops. The only thing I'm cautious about is the big seam around the back, just under the waistband. It sits directly under my backpack's hipbelt and may chafe.
