Too Slim cut for me in the low rise

Great looking pants, but not cut for me. I bought the same size 4 in the Kuhl Softshell cargo pants and they fit great. Not so for the Splash Roll-up pants. Material has a little give, but not so much. The ryder rise was lower on these splash ones than on the softshell cargo pants. Inseam fit fine (5'5" 120#) and legs has plenty of room, but the waist was too tight. Great looking pants. If you have narrow hips, these would work for you. Glad that backcountry has such a great return policy. These sadly had to go back.

Responded on

I also bought these pants and the material is very comfortable, however, I am 5'5 and 120 lbs and the size 6 I bought fit perfect everywhere except in the hips. These were a little snugger than I prefer. While I could still wear these and be comfortable, for hiking purposes I like my pants to fit a bit looser allowing room to layer clothing if necessary. I am going to return these and try the size 8 because I really want these pants, hopefully the size 8 will fit my hips better and not be too big everywhere else.
