- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 2/Short
First impressions: These are flattering AND comfortable. Can't wait to try them on the trail. Absolutely perfect fit for me, from waist to cuff. Exactly the size I would have expected from the size chart. I was just looking to see if they have more in my size because I can tell I would like more of these in more colors. I've tried a lot of pants recently (esp Kuhl and Prana) and this are way more flattering than what I've been finding. Lightweight material, just the right amount of it.
I agree the pockets are useless! I don't usually carry stuff in my pockets so I don't care. (I do like one deep well-placed pocket to slip my phone, but Kuhl seems to be the only brand I've found that does this right.)
I wish Backcountry made it possible to search for short sizes! It would make my life so much easier.
