Runs Small, not for Curves

    These pants run small! I am 5'6'', 145 lbs and normally wear a 10 and I could not even zip them up. I have a small waist and skinny legs but big hips/butt. So it may be that they just aren't made for curvy women. If you do try them, I would suggest ordering two sizes up. Also, the fabric is not strectchy at all and very restricting.

    Good pants

      I need trekking pants for my upcoming trip to Kilimanjaro, so I decided to give these a try.

      I got these pants in a size 8 regular. I'm 5'4", 130lbs, 29" waist, 39" hips. They fit comfortably, and the length is good. They have buttons to roll up the legs, and they zip off at a decent length for shorts. I got the marsh green color and I really like them. They're kind of that army olive green color - not the color they looked like on my computer.

        definatly a good buy

          i found these pants at a cabellas store so i knew exactly what they looked like but i wanted to find a better price. i think i saved about 7 dollars with the lower price at backcountry.com which included free shipping. the pants are great exactly what i wanted. they are a water resistant material so they are a little slick, something you cant tell from the pictures. defintaly recomend them cant wait to take them hiking. the shipping was amazingly fast also a great bonus.

          Got junk in the trunk? Skip these.

            I thought these pants were really cool, but they just plain did not fit. I tried 3 different sizes (I really wanted them to work) - If I went big enough to get good freedom of movement in the thighs and hips, they were waaaay to big around the waist. I think if the fabric had more stretch they would have been much better.

            Poor stretch/movement

              I ordered these in a 10 (and usually wear a size 8 in regular pants). They look good and fit fine when walking around the house, but they don't stretch when you sit. They might be okay for an easy day hike, but they'd be terrible for scrambling or anything that requires taking big steps. The fabric cuts into your thighs when you step up. If you have incredibly twiggy legs, these might be okay for you.

              Not so much

                The second pair of North Face convertible pants I've tried that just didn't work. The fit is just all wrong for me. The waist was too big but the hip & booty area were too tight. Felt like trying on a pair of men's pants. I did like the fabric and the features on the pants. Hopefully North Face will start fitting pants for women, not just making men's pants in smaller sizes.

                Not too baggy

                  I was looking for a pair of hiking pants that won't be so baggy like the ones I had always used. Searching the web I found Backcountry.com and worked with a rep. and chose these North Face Porter Convertible ones. I really like the fit and they look seriously cool compared to my old ones. They are good enough that I wore them for a city walk, stairway hike, in San Francisco.
                  They do dry up fast and they are very light. My only slight issue with them is that the waist area looks kind of flimsy and not reinforced. But heavier fabric at the waist might slow the drying.

                  Not too baggy

                  Long enough!!!

                    love these pants! I'm a size 3/4 with a 34 inch instep, so finding pants that are long enough is a challenge. A Backcountry gear expert helped me find these pants. I ordered a 4 long and they fit perfectly!!! haven't found a pair of pants that fit me this well in years!! would buy them again in a heart beat.

                    Durable Fabric

                      I got these pants for my GF and the material was too thick for her liking. She wanted a really thin quick drying pant ehich these ended up not being. She ended up going with the North Face Horizon Convertible Pant which ended up being just what she wanted. She's 5'2" 110 and the size 2 regs fit her good, but they sit high up on the waist.

                      Not kidding

                        So I read the reviews, these run small, yadda yadda...went ahead and bought an 8. I am 5'10' 150bs and take an 8 in just about everything....well, everyone is right. They run small. It really wasn't even close, the buttons could only see each other from a few inches away. So, they went back....I will get more (seeing that they actually sell tall) but will get prob a 12.

                        Great traditional NF hiking pant

                          Can't beat having a great hiking pant ready for summer and these are on sale. These don't have stretch but the fabric is super durable. I got 1 pair + 2 other NF to get ready for summer hiking trip. I always go up 1 size as I find NF tends to run small. Can't go wrong with these but the fabric is thicker than other NF fabrics.

                          Hated these pants

                            I am normally a size 4/6, and I ordered these in a 6. They would have been great if the pants had even a tiny bit of stretch to them. I tried the size 8 but they were baggy all around, too long and still kind of stiff in a full squat position. I also did not like the length of the shorts. I would prefer a shorter short.

                            Durable

                              I have to agree with wearing a size up on these pants,I tried them on in a local sporting goods store and went a size up for more flexibility, I did not want them to fit like a pair of skinny jeans.
                              The pants are very durable as with anything from Northface, and I am going on two yrs with the ones I have.

                              Great outdoor pants for any weather/environment

                                I bought a pair a couple years ago for a 5 day camping trip and they were perfect. It was great to have the pants in the morning/night, but as the weather warmed up during the day being able to remove the legs was so convenient. I wear the pants/shorts every weekend hiking with my dog which is why I finally bought another pair.

                                Hi. What's the inseam for size 8 regular and tall? The size chart says regular is 31", but I've read elsewhere -- like on the North Face site -- that it's 32" and that talls are 34". But then I've read reviews here and elsewhere that say the inseam is way too short on the regular pant. So, does anyone know what the deal is?

                                I'm wondering about the Asphalt Grey color...

                                I'm wondering about the Asphalt Grey color - it looks so dark on Backcountry.com, but other websites' images of the pants in that color look significantly lighter. Is Backcountry's depiction accurate? Also, are the pants available in the Pumice Gray (in any size other than 10L)? Thanks!

                                I ordered the pants, and now I'm able to answer my own question... And I wanted to make sure to put it up here in case anyone else is wondering.
                                The asphalt grey IS darker than most other websites depict it to be, but not QUITE as dark as it looks here on Backcountry.com (on the three monitors I've looked at, they look almost black). I personally love it... I'm keeping them for sure!
