To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I tried a lot of technical pants to get to where I am at today. All prior to this Fjallraven pair were sad excuses for outdoor equipment. I tried a harrowing variety of pants from Amazon to get a feel for what was available (brands from MEIR, Outdoor Adventure, and plenty of off brand products as well.) After many different tries and return trips to the UPS store, investing in this pair of Fjallraven's was the end-all to my outdoor pant needs. They are sturdy, attractive, mindfully built and thoughtfully manufactured. They are also likely to last me a lifetime.
In Goldylocks fairytale fashion, I tried nearly all models for women (Nikka, Abisko, Vidda, Vidda Pro.) All fit differently and had their own perks. The Vidda Pro was the only one that fit all of my parameters. Gusseted crotch to put a stop to camel-toe on the trail, adjustable ankles to keep snow out or let air in, and dual vents from hip to knee so these can 4-season pants. I am 5' 6.5" and 133lbs with an exactly 28.5" natural waist, the size 36 fit like a skin tight glove. I prefer a little more breathing room so jumped up to a size 38 and boyo are they perfect. Just enough wiggle room to wear a good base layer if needed underneath and still make my butt look cute.
I did order these through Amazon from a third-party seller called Backcountry and the return process is not nearly as easy as a typical Amazon return. The process is a little bumpy and they actually recommend that you start the return and then buy the size you need so that you get them faster, which seems a little weird tbh. For the slightly-too small pant I had to make a call to Backcountry and get a return authorization number and completely different UPS return label. Currently still waiting to be refunded at this time. Will update when return process is complete.
