LOVE THESE

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 6

The second I put these pants on, I fell in love with them, and am ordering another pair right now. I don't climb, but I work in the woods, so having a light weight canvas pants for early and late season is awesome when tackling the brush. The pants are SO comfortable. I have nothing bad to say about these pants. (I have not tried these climbing, just FYI!). I purchased a size 6 and they are a little loose on me, so we'll see if they stretch out or not and become too loose.

Thank you Bethany! I have 2 pairs!

Enjoy,

Great pants all around

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 6

I'm 5'7", 129lb, and a size 6 in this pant is pretty close to being perfect. The length is perfect, the slight bit of stretch in the fabric, the softness of the cotton (a lot softer and thinner than jeans), the depth of the front pockets, the location of the back pockets, the mid rise. BUT, what would make this pant even better for me would be a zippered thigh pocket. I'm so used to OR Ferrosi's zippered thigh pocket (in pants, capri, shorts) that I wonder if my key fob will be safe in my front pocket and not the usual zippered pocket. OR Ferrosi fit is slightly larger on me. This pant fits me even better. Now I need to think about the possibility of getting another color since they fit so well.

at last-- pants that fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 8

It has been quite some time since I've tried on any OR pants or products. I have always had a difficult time finding pants that fit, and it's rare that I find pants that fit well. These fit surprisingly well. I am not skinny by any means; but am athletic (I road bike, swim, hike, and lift weights regularly) and have a larger rear and legs, while my waist is proportionately smaller. Usually I can fit a hand, or sometimes two, in the waistband of pants that otherwise fit. I was apprehensive when I saw the lower cut waist, but the pants fit! I have no gap in the back, and can squat and bend over without my pants pulling down. The pants have a straight fit and fall nicely. The fabric looks and feels durable without being stiff or rough. Ive worn these a few times to break them in and wash them, and am looking forward to taking them out on the trail soon.
I purchased a size 8 and the pants fit well-- not tight, but not so loose that I need a belt but am still able to wear silk long underwear under them.

Hey Austin - thank you for writing. I still need to get a pair of these!

Enjoy!

As I seem to have the same fitting issue as you do, I was geeked to read your review and will likely purchase because of it. I live at the tailor because of the

Nice Pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I didn't know these were climbing pants, but that just changes the back pocket position a little bit. I think they look nice, and I really like the fabric, tough but lightweight.

Comfortable and Cute

    I asked for and got a pair of these as a Christmas gift and was surprised that they fit so well AND they looked great on! I would wear them every day. I am 5'4'' 135 lbs. and the 4 fits really well (but could be an inch shorter for me). I have worn them to the climbing gym a couple of times and they are also super comfy with a harness and while climbing.

    Stylish, but Athletic Cut

      Just got a pair of these pants and was surprised to find them comfortable and great for outdoor activity, but also a cute and stylish cut. The low-profiled waist is designed to fit under a harness, which is great, but it also makes them look better on. No more boxy, big, unflattering pants to be active.
