Gear Review

Ok but returned.

I purchased these in black for backpacking. They're well made and fit well in some aspects (the overall length was good, the articulated knees seemed really nice), but I had problems with the waistband. First, I'm 5'7" 120lbs without much in the way of hips and ordered a 4. The waist fit fine, except that the snap was constantly popping off. Even when I tugged gently on the waistband, it would unsnap. Also, these pants sat pretty high on my waist, so my backpacking waistbelt sat right on top of them. Having had irritation from this sort of situation in the past, and with no way to wear them lower without having them unsnap, I decided to return.
