REI Acme Pants - Women's Petiteis rated3.8out of5by5.
Rated4out of5byRR PetitefromWish they had an adjustable waiste.I got the 6 petite. Too much room in the hips and waist for me, may be perfect for women with larger hips. I like that they sit nearly at my natural waist (at the naval). I usually wear an 8 or sometimes a 6. Length is perfect -I'm 5'4 and wear a 29" insearm. Wish waist would adjust with a Velcro or button adjustment. RR in Bellingham, WA

Rated4out of5byMountain mousefromweist is too hugeI got this on the sale and am happy aout price. I always have to hem shorter but this was just right for my short legs. I am 5 feet 3 and size 6. I got small. I love the fabric and it is heavy enough to keep warm in windy and cold condition. I use this for alpine climbing on snow. Also it was nice looking at the airport for traveling.
The weist was too huge and have to cinch up with the belt in couple of inches. It dose not fir right.
It is difficult to fix by myself and left it as I got.
Thank you for making Petite but very poor shape on hip and weist. If it was in full price, I did not purchase. I understand young kids want low waist but it was way too big and dose not hold on hip. I will ask to REI to make full figure pants for mountain or hiking use.

Rated5out of5byjackiegracefromSuper!These are the greatest pants. I got them for hiking and have used them throughout the winter. The fabric is a little heavier so somewhat warmer. In 25 degree weather I only wore very lightweight thermals while hiking. While everyone else had to stop to put on rain pants, I didn't need to as the water pilled up and ran off. I have beat them to death going through brush, against trees and rocks and have even fallen on a path with sharp rocks only to wash them and have they look like new again. They are stretchy and give when you move so very comfortable. There is a zipper and Velcro at the cuffs so you can remove boots or tighten the cuff down. I am 5'5", 145 lbs, I bought a 12 petite and they fit well. I have 2 pair mostly because the second pair went on sale and it was too good to pass up.

Rated1out of5byavid skierfromnot for skiingAlthough the first description line suggest backcountry skiing, a close look a the photo confirmed by a phone call yields the information that these pants would not fit over ski boots! Too bad, because otherwise they do look ideal for backcountry skiing (with waterproof overpants when required).
