Great pants!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 8

I just got these this morning. I was a little worried but they fit great. I am 5’3 and around 145pounds. I have bigger hips but these pants are stretchy and fit great. They are a little long so I might have to cut them a little bit. I hope this review helps!

Great pants!

I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. I have worn the Outdoor Research Wadi Rum pants for climbing outdoors and hiking to the crag (max one hour each way). The material is great quality- sturdy strength but not restricting. I felt comfortable walking through brush, snagged a few tree branches while scrambling, and the pants held up just fine. I also tend to scoot down steeper terrain sometimes and the material held through that as well. Despite being a little thicker, they were still super stretchy and I was able to climb well in them and go for high footholds. They probably aren’t the pants you want for really hot weather, as I started to get a little warm in them at 80-85 degrees F outside in the sun, but any cooler than that and you’ll be very comfortable.

Sizing seems fairly accurate, although I tend to fluctuate. I’m 5’6” and ~145 lbs, and the size 8 felt comfortable, maybe a little loose. I don’t think I would have been as comfortable sizing down, so these were the best fit for me. The color (I got the Sand color) is realistic between real life and the website photo, and washes out dirt pretty easily. One of the cool features of the OR Wadi Rum pants are the leg pockets (yep, below the regular pockets) so you can store your phone/camera/snack without getting in the way of your backpack or harness. Overall pretty great pants, would definitely recommend to friends!

The Wadi Rum Pant exceeded every expectation!

Fit: great for active bodies, I am a size 8 and the 8s were perfect.
Movement: The stretch is awesome, and although I don't need much stretch at work, it comes in handy at the climbing gym!
Fabric: Cotton, Cordura and spandex feels natural and great, while giving me some awesome durability.

I'm about to order 2 more pairs of these killer pants ! You will love them!

I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. I have lots of Outdoor Research gear including softshell snowpants, gaiters, mittens, and gloves, but the Outdoor Research Wadi Rum pant is my first clothing acquisition, and I am very pleased. These pants fit true to size, and are cut well for an athletic woman. As you can see from the photo, they are a few inches long on me, but take to a folded cuff very well, no tailoring needed (this is quite remarkable, as most pants are like, a foot too long on me - I am 5'3). I have only tested them around town at at work at this point of the season (we are still in snowpants mode here in Alaska), but they are showing great range of motion, and I receive lots of compliments on them! A great feature is that the side pockets snap shut and even fit my huge plus sized iPhone, lol. May have to buy another pair and designate for work (I am a teacher and move around and am up and down off the floor with the little kids a lot)! I am looking forward to using these pants on hiking and camping trips where a quick-dry fabric is necessary. Bottom Line: These Outdoor Research Wadi pants are cut well for athletic women, and have great technical features.
