I truly love my pairs of REI pants, purchased for an African safari last year. But I finally took to my nail scissors to cut out the labels along the back waistbands. They are scratchy and annoying and leave sore places on my back where they rub against my skin. Is there anything you can do to soften the material where they are sewn on? I don't really need to be reminded that my pants are REI or Relaxed or whatever the other label said. Ouch!
@ebenefiel thanks so much for reaching out with this feedback (and sorry to hear the labels are scratchy). We can certainly pass this along to our Co-op Brands team - it'd be helpful to know which REI pants you bought, if possible!
@ebenefiel when that happens to me, I use a bit of my first aid tape to cover the offending material. For me, it was part of the zipper seam on a pair of REI classic sahara convertibles.
