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.
These pants are so inconsistent in sizing and style. I've ordered 3 pairs all different colours and supposedly the same pant style. All the pants fit differently and are different styles! Terrible considering the price of them! These pants are comfortable and lightweight. Save your money as you never know what you're getting.
It took me several tries to get the size right on these. Quite a few reviews stated that they run small. I am 5'8" and weigh 143 pounds. Waist is 29" and hips are 38". I normally wear a small or Medium depending on how pants run. Listening to the reviews I ordered a Medium and a large pair (with free returns). Both were too big. So I ordered them in size Small and those fit much better...not so baggy and gappy in the waist. I am a race-walker and admit that I have very large muscular calves and I wouldn't mind a bit more room at the bottom of these pants. But if you have normal legs this shouldn't be a problem. The fabric is super thin and lightweight. And there is a ton of stretch in it...they are very comfortable. I think they will be ideal for travel to tropical climates and great for hiking. They do feel and look a bit like pajama bottoms but I guess that's not really a bad thing. I gave them 4 stars at this point because I've not worn them to see how durable they are. Time will tell.
UPDATE: I liked these pants enough that I ordered a pair in gray. Since the pair that I already had was a size small and those fit well, I ordered the gray in a small too. They were WAY too small! So I reordered them in a size medium and they were perfect.
Also, I wanted another pair of the tan ones. When I ordered another pair in size small (keep in mind that I already have a pair in size small and they fit perfectly). The new tan ones came in too small! URGH! It's safe to say that quality control is terrible on these...the sizes run Willie-nillie so you never know what you are going to get when they arrive. I had to send them back. Guess I'll just stick with the pair that I already have that fits.
