    Absolutely love

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I absolutely love these pants. Fit is very good. Nice variety of pocket sizes and with zippers or without zippers. The front pockets are especially appreciated, because they're very deep (probably about 8inches), so objects never fall out of the pockets in the field.

    There's a jawstring inside the pants that ties behind the button. Excellent. Keeps the pants from falling down (I wear a loose fit) and way more comfortable than wearing a belt.

    These pants fall at the hip, NOT highwaisted.

    Great tall pant for hiking

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 4 Tall

    I can't say enough about this purchase from Backcountry.com. First, the service was incredible. I was contacted within minutes of placing the order to see if I had any further questions and received the pants within 2 days. These are fantastic pants for tall women. They are wide enough on the bottom (almost flared) to fit OVER the top of your hiking boots. I have exactly a 36" inseam flat-footed, and these fit perfectly, even with clunky hiking boots. I've tried plenty of other pants from Eddie Bauer, etc., but these are the only ones that fit over shoes, much less hiking boots. I'm 6'1", so if you're shorter they might be a little bit long, but it's hard for me to sympathize with complaints of things being too long... I'm tall and slender, but not all that 'firm" and the butt is flattering and not too low-rising, so nothing is hanging out when you sit down, but also not up around your navel making it weird for a shirt to lay on top (I also have a long torso as well, so not sure how it will fit on others). As far as size, I would typically order a 6, but after reading reviews about stretching, I went with a 4 and they fit just right. Shirts would be flattering both tucked and untucked. The pockets are large enough to be useful. Overall, this is a very modern fit and I couldn't be more pleased. I purchased them for a safari trip in Africa where I'm concerned about both mosquitos and tse flies and wanted full coverage at my ankles, but I also wanted something I could wear around town and not look like a complete tourist fresh in the bush... These should do the trick. The convertible zipper hangs a little lower than I would have liked, giving the appearance of true knickers when you take the pants off, but I've found that I can roll them up to be a little more flattering for my legs and they would look very awkward as pants if the zipper was higher up on the thigh. I'm looking forward to using them beyond this trip as hiking pants and am so thrilled that I've found something that fits! (Also, the color was exactly what I expected and dark enough to not show stains/dirt right away). They are also reasonably priced for the market and the material is durable enough to last for years.

    Alaskan tough ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10 long

    Been fishing, hiking, camping and traveling with these pants all over the state in the last few weeks. Not only were they tough and practical but I got tons of compliments on their fit and style. Would recommend and buy again. So relieved I could find a pair of long convertible pants!

    Fabulous and Flattering

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8 regular

    Purchased these to walk on the Camino de Santiago in September 2016. They are super comfortable and flattering. I love the length when turned into shorts, especially for someone my age (57). I am 5'9" and they are the perfect length for my frame. The fabric is awesome and doesn't make a shushing sound when I walk either.

    Great travel pants

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Size Bought: 10 Tall

    I took these on a two week trip to Spain. Great zip off legs (I like the length of the shorts) meant I didn't need a separate pair of shorts. Nice deep front pockets, side zip pocket is a little small. Back zip pocket is nice.

    I wear mine with a belt but drawstring is great for going through airport security to keep your pants up. I lost 4 pounds on my trip and needed this feature when I couldn't wear my belt.

    Easy to clean, dries fast. Packs down to nothing. Easy to remove legs over shoes without removing shoes!

    I'm 6'2" with 36" inseam and this is the first pair of convertible pants I've found that fit without looking stupid. Color coal and black are awesome. Stock the 10Tall again and I'll order another pair!

    Pants are too long, but amazing!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    These pants are amazing!! They are the most comfortable out of all the ones I tried on. I especially love the draw string waist. I bought these because of the longer shorts. I could not find any that went over my knee and these are perfect. My only complaint is that they are way too long. I am 5'4" 150 lbs and I bought the 10 regular. I could have exchanged them for the short, but those would have been to long too. I just had them hemmed because they are seriously the most comfortable pants ever! I love them so much I bought another pair in a different color!

    Finally, a great pair of hiking pants!

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 4

    Finally, a pair of hiking pants with a drawstring! Hiking pants stretch and loosen when in use and after awhile become too big, even if I size down in pant. I've been looking for a pair of pants that had a button and drawstring. These pants are very figure flattering that don't make you look like you're wearing 'mom pants' and still very comfortable. I usually wear a Small or size 4 in pants. I ordered the small and they were pretty loose and knew they would be too big once they started to stretch. I am returning them and ordering an XS.

    MIghty Monarchs

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 2

    I have had many pairs of Monarchs, both old and new style. They are like my outdoor uniform, and are super durable, versatile, look great and are super comfy!

    I wear them for trad climbing, peak bagging, backpacking and even working on the farm. I always feel like a rock star in them.

    love

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 2

    Lovely material - soft (it's not the same as the Sage pant which is more crisp). So grateful for the short sizes. Front pockets are deep, back has one closed pocket and the other is open and it has some zipper pockets elsewhere. I love this. Great for casual, hiking, and all year wear (wearing base layers underneath should be good, although possibly a little bit "non-wind proof").

    Good for tall women

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 10 Tall

    I'm 6'1" and have a very difficult time finding pants that fit properly. These are pretty good, for the first time in my life I'm going to say that these were a little too long! But, no worries, they aren't a problem if I wear the right shoes. Overall, I'd purchase again, especially with the limited selection for tall women.

    Hate the new design

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 2 tall

    I bought a pair of Monarch pants a couple years ago and they were the best-fitting, most flattering hiking pants I have ever worn. It is very difficult for me to find hiking pants that fit correctly, let alone look good one me. The back pockets made my butt look great! I lost some weight and excitedly ordered a new pair without noticing that they changed them and boy, am I disappointed. The back pockets are truly awful, asymmetrical, and flatten my butt. They don't fit the same and are extremely unflattering. I am really upset that I wasted so much money on a pair of pants that fit the same as a cheap pair from REI.

    I agree completely! I loved the old design--it was very flattering and comfortable. I'm 5'3", 135# and the old style in a 6 short fit me as Robin described. The new design is awful--I can't believe they fit so differently. Not flattering at all and not comfortable so I returned.

    Breathable, functional, LONG inseam

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 4/Tall

    Very comfortable, flattering and functional. The fit is streamlined without being at all tight or constricting. The zippers on the legs hit right at my knee (as can be seen on the product photos), which I thought might be uncomfortable on long hikes, but this has not been an issue so far. The zip off legs can be pulled over my rather huge hiking boots, which is super convenient.

    I tried these and the prAna Halle pants, and much preferred the Monarchs for their bigger front pockets and slightly thinner, more breathable fabric.

    Finally, hiking for tall women!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8 Tall

    Love these pants. Spent three weeks hiking in Switzerland and these were my goto pants/shorts! Long enough for my 36" inseam, a little extra rise for us tall women, very nice fabric, dry quick, zip off legs come off over boots, internal drawstring for a little extra customization. Perfect.

    Long Enough and look great

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8 Tall

    These pants are great. The am tall and the Tall size is long enough for my long legs. I have worn them backpacking, in vacation, running around on a Saturday and pretty much any time I can.
