Rated4out of5byfromLove These PantsI ordered these pants before embarking on a one week 106 mile kayaking adventure. The pants worked great, were very comfortable, and held up well. One thing I really liked is the zipper on the side, since I could keep the pants attached, while exposing the lower legs to the sun, and then being able to zip them closed when I got too much sun. I didn't think I'd like this zipper and thought it would be in my way or annoying. It wasn't. If there is a drawback, I am tall 5'11" and these pants were a little long; but it's a nice change having pants too long:-) I will be ordering another pair of these pants shortly.

Rated5out of5byfromOne of my favorite buys!I use these as my cross-functional hiking/camping pants. I love the length (I have a 35/36" inseam), as well as the fact that the legs zip up the sides before zipping off of the shorts allowing you to stand while removing them and avoiding having to pull them off over muddy shoes. This is an ideal situation for me as I often have my 2 year old packed on my back and it's quite difficult to stand up with him back there once I'm sitting down. I did find that the sizing was a bit off for my body type (narrow waist, curvy hips/legs), but honestly, most women's pants are. I had to go up two sizes to get the right fit in the hips and legs, then take in the elastic waist a bit. I like the high waist (aligning with my belly button) because I don't feel like I need to constantly tug my pants up or my shirt down. Also, they're quite cool. Perfect for summer weather in Colorado, but in colder weather I would definitely advise wearing longies underneath for added warmth. I WILL be buying another pair of these!

Rated5out of5byfromGreat pants!These pants are awesome. I am so glad I took a chance and bought these over the Internet without having tried them on. I am 5'10" and it is usually very difficult to find pants that fit my long legs. These are more than long enough. They shrunk about half an inch in the wash, and so far they are holding up very well. Great for casual wear around the house, city walking/errands, and outdoor activities such as hiking or rock climbing.
