- Q & A
I own two pairs
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Medium
I purchased the pink in medium about a year ago and used them for ice climbing as an outer layer all winter plus some scrambling this summer. They are overall durable, fashionable and comfortable. The pockets are extremely functional for phones, credit cards, keys, etc. I haven't found a good use for the one at the back yet...
The only issue for me is that I'm a bit shorter, so they run on the long side for me. I bought the medium so I could wear a base layer underneath, but I can wear them without one as well. I prefer them as an outer layer since they are fairly heavy and don't feel as nice against the skin as a yoga pant or tight. The length works best on me with mountaineering boots vs hiking boots or approach shoes.
Detailed critiquing aside, I bought the turquoise as a second pair because I love this pant so much. The colours make me more visible as well. Well designed and comfortable, I highly recommend this as a similar product to the Patagonia Guide Pant with a bit more colour.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
Purchased these for my wife and she loved these from the first time she wore them. Said they are comfortable and feel great with or without a base layer. These kept her warm on winter hikes and snowshoe outings. Other reviews mention to size down, she is normally a medium, purchased a small and they were too tight. Returned for a medium which fit great.
She is 5'5", 140 lbs muscular build.
The fit is great. I ordered a medium, but might have been able to get a small. I'm 5'4" 145 pounds. They do run big, but it worked out once I had a couple base layers underneath. I wore them to climb Mt. Hood and they were really comfortable, did a great job of staying dry, and didn't fall down.
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT !
Can't take them off! Great fabric, great fit.
Don't take your usual size. Use the size guide because the Scandinavians girls are big....! I usually wear a M, but used the size chart and needed a S. Worked perfect.
Really nice, but....
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Too short for a tall girl :((
