This is a super quality pant, especially for the lower price point. As many previous reviews stated, the sizing is ridiculously hard to pin down. These pants are long and lean, I am 5'3" and 120 lbs, the small fit ok, if not a tad on the tight side. I do wonder if I would have slightly better mobility in the medium. Hiking and sidestepping was somewhat inhibited by the tighter cut on these pants, but not so much that I was upset.
The fabric quality is great, they feel good. The cut is also very flattering. I paired this up with the Stoic Insulated Bombshell jacket and it's just delightful.
Not super wild about the side pockets - bad engineering. The flap is fixed, so that it is incredibly difficult to insert your palm into the pocket if you need to fish something out. I avoid using them. Pretty stupid, if you ask me.
I think with a few tweaks this pant could be GREAT, but it's worth it for the affordability vs. durability factor.
