short body and loose waist
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: small
At 5'8" with a long waist, the straps are crazy short for me. I needed two more inches to not have a major wedgy. Considering they can adjust to be probably five inches shorter, I don't know what body size would need the shortest strap setting with legs that would work for someone 5'6" or taller. Also the waist was really baggy in the back, which I also can't understand because these are clearly designed with a lot of thought - someone could toss coins down the back of my pants at the lodge. The hook-and-loop waist adjuster should be in the back, not in the front. It makes the fabric scrunch up in a terrible-looking way if adjusted tighter at all. I think that's unacceptable at this price point. Other than being too short in the body and too big in the waist, the size small fit my legs, and I usually wear a size 4/small, so I found these true to size.
