very stiff with a saggy crotch

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Melissa from Hawaii on Monday, April 27, 2015
I usually don't pay more than $40 for jeans, but I decided to give these a try since they were on sale, they looked nice in the picture, and I've had a good experience with Mountain Hardwear clothing so far. The first thing I noticed when I took these out of the package was how incredibly stiff they were. I probably could have stood them up on their own. I assumed that meant that the denim material they used was probably very durable, so I gave them a shot and tried them on. The description says that these run small, so order a size up, but I think I could've gotten away with ordering my normal size. I'm 5'5" and 130 lbs. I ordered a size 6, but I think a size 4 might have fit well, too. The size 6 was not too big on me. It had a nice, comfortable, slightly loose fit. Maybe they would've fit better after a wash. The back of the jeans fit nicely, but what made me decide to return these was that the front of the pants don't fit well. The crotch part where the zipper is was too big and it sagged. Maybe that is something that would've gone away with a run through the washing machine. Maybe the stiffness of the jeans would've been fixed by that too, but I didn't want to take a chance and not be able to return it if I still didn't like them afterward.
