Runs small and see through!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

Ordered the tailored grey because I wanted something else besides black and they are see through! I have tattoo's and I can see them through the pants. The fit ran small, and the seems are not sewed with stretchy fabric. The second I put them on, the seems tore! They have a very nice fit and fabric is nice just the the minor issues. Could be better with an larger size and dark color.

Pallid Pants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I don't hate them, but I'm also not head-over-heels for the guide pants. They fit small in the thigh and unexpectedly flare out at the base. They snag and tear easily and stretched out a full size after only a few uses.

In their defense, they fit comfortably with a climbing harness and there are plenty of pockets. Not the worst pair of pants I've ever owned, but definitely not my favorite.
