Well, these are not bad pants really. They were tough, I wore them on a 38 mile, 5 day hike. Pretty comfy all in all. But I still regret buying them because of two key missing features that made my life so so frustrating! First, the zip off legs. They work fine, the zippers were a little sticky but fine. But the face that there were no side zippers meant in order to take off or put on, had me sitting down and taking off my boots each time. So made them almost pointless because once I committed to shorts or pants, it was way too much work to take off my pack, sit down, take off both shoes, unzip, etc. Second, even more annoying was there were no side pockets for my phone and knife. The hip pockets didn't fit my phone, annoying, and the pack pretty much was covering them anyway, making them pretty useless for something like your camera where you want to pull it out quickly and put it away quickly. Just two things to think about with these pants.
I am 5'6" and weigh about 200lbs. I got these pants to try for an upcoming backpacking trip in size 1x regular. When they came the waist was above my bellybutton, about an inch which was good, but they were so long that the leg covered my entire foot (online said inseam was 31" but my jeans are 31" inseam and nowhere near this long).
I've never had to order pants size short but I thought that might fix the issue so I reordered in 1x short. When these pants came, the waist was more v-shaped and was well below my bellybutton by an inch or more, just the opposite of the regular pair. The legs were an okay length (online I think it said 29" inseam) but the ankle openings were huge and looked silly.
The fit issues were too much for me so I returned both pair in favor of a different brand that fits perfectly.
Some people said that these pants were loud and I would agree. The fabric is somewhat stiff and a tiny bit abrasive so they make a lot of noise. I have a lot of hiking pants but none that made this much noise. If they would have fit well I would have kept them anyway.
I got the plum pants- gorgeous color, but the waist was a bit large, and a little too full in the hips for me. Sending back to get the large. Also, these are not 'quiet' pants. If it weren't for the color, I would've simply returned them.
I can’t believe how nice these pants are for the money. I originally bought them for $20 and fell in love with them and then they went on sale for $7 so I bought another pair in black and 2 pairs in khaki. I was a little weary to buy at first bc people said they make a lot of noise and I work with horses, but they really aren’t that loud at all. They are super comfortable and fit nicely around my waist. I am 5’10 and was worried that the “long” size wouldn’t be long enough but they are perfect length.
