Pants look dowdy and Sierra trading post charges hefty for returns

Verified Buyer Reviewed by delirifacient from LA on Thursday, May 12, 2016
I'm a longtime IB fan and have had dozens of pieces over the years. These pants are the second item I've sent back in all that time. They just don't work. I ordered a 29 inch waist which fit fine, but the rest of the pant was very odd. The thighs were semi tight but then they have this huge flare--far more than a regular bootcut. I'm 5'6" and there was literally 4" of extra fabric--if I had kept them I would've had to have them tailored. The fabric is scratchy and not at all comfortable...and these are the first IB pants I've felt too warm in. Overall, they look very casual to the point of being dumpy. Might be decent for walking the dog or attending an outdoor sports event but I wouldn't travel in them nor wear them for anything office related. And Sierra Trading Post's return policy is ridiculous. After return shipping and some other random fee was deducted they ended up taking a whopping total of $15 off my return. Contrast that with Icebreaker's actual site...I spent $100 on a dress, ended up returning it--and was refunded a total of $100 dollars (they paid for shipping both ways). I can't recommend these pants or Sierra Trading Post.
