These pants fit me nicely, but I decided to return them because the material is really loud (swishy and crinkley) and I knew I would get annoyed with a full day of hiking in these.

I bought these pants in black and asphalt. The black fit better than the asphalt which seemed a little more baggy. Maybe an XS would have fit better in asphalt, but a small in the black fits really well. I also bought them in the short size and they are a good length for me. They are super comfortable and wash well. Looking forward to camping and hiking a bunch in these pants.

I'm 5'9" and roughly 155lbs athletic build, and these fit great, they are flattering, love the stretchy material factor. It's so hard to find pants that actually fit athletic builds (eg. strong quad game, narrow hips). I feel like I could wear these climbing or to the office.

I was so looking forward to these pants after reading all of the great reviews. I am a small person, so I originally ordered the XXS. They fit and looked amazing except for in the crotch area. This area was so tight and awkward that I had to return. I then tried the XS. Not as good of a fit as the XXS and the crotch is still fairly tight, but better. Just couldn't find that sweet-spot with these. I do love the stretch for climbing, the pockets are amazing, and the lightness is perfect. With a few adjustments, these would be the best climbing pants ever.

I absolutely love these pants. I have them in midnight blue and they are my favorite currently. They are so comfortable and the cut is very flattering on me. My only regret is not being able to get the huckleberry colored ones in my size, they haunt my dreams I so wish they would restock. I also wish they came in olive color or maybe even yellow. I'd buy them all!!

Love these pants, the fit is on point and the style is really nice. I plan to get a lot of wear out of these pants over many years...I hope - will use them for travel and hiking. The only downside is that the fabric is extra loud and makes swishing noises when I move/walk so no sneaking up on anyone or anything.

I got these pants for wearing around the house and just day to day wear, but realized I just want to wear them every day. I just drove from Wisconsin to Utah and wore these for most of the trip and they felt wonderful THE WHOLE TIME. They are a great fit and have that most amazing stretch for us small waist yet big hip girls (pic of the stretch included). If you travel or road trip often I would certainly suggest these pants!

I'm obsessed with these pants and have started buying them and the winter version as gifts. they're so comfortable and lightweight. The winter ones are fleece lined if you're looking for the extra warmth. 10/10 would recommend. I'm either a medium or small typically and opted for the medium for a looser fit, the smalls fit more like leggings.

I like these pants. I am 5'6" and 125 lbs and they fit comfortably. Plenty long enough. I don't love the material for winter, but great for spring, summer and fall. They can double as scrub pants for shure, more comfortable than scrubs too. I just get weirded out by quick dry material against my skin, I don't know why. I baught these because one of the reviews I read said, they are lightly lined with flease....lies!!! They are not lined at all.

The winter version of this pant is lined with fleece

The Kilby Winter Pant is the name of the one that's fleece lined, if anyone's looking! :)

Soft and stretchable fabric make for a great leisure pant or active wear pant. Got these for my girlfriend and right off the bat I was very impressed with the textile used. Good quality and great fit.

These pants are really flexible and breathable and fit so well. I have a really small waist and often have trouble finding pants that are snugg enough around the waist but these are perfect and the elastic helps to make sure it can fit everyone. In comparison to the Backcountry winter pants they are tighter In comparison to the Backcountry on the go LIGHT pants they are a bit bigger. Despite the size difference in the three different pants I do love them all and find these ones to be the best all around. In the Image the pants from back to front are the Winter pant, the On the Go, and the On the Go LIGHT in the front - all pants are in the same size xxs

I LOVE these pants! The medium is just a touch loose in the waist band but they're not big enough to justify getting a small. I will have to use the ties to adjust the waist and make them tight enough. I'm hoping a trip through the washer helps with that. I got these pants in black. They are flattering, comfortable, and transition from casual to technical with ease. I want to wear them for everything! I am especially looking forward to wearing these to work, for travel, and on trail. I would love to see this pant in available more colors.

Can you please make more tall sizes in your products?! It’s so difficult to find a 35” inseam or a fitted shirt that’s long enough...

Hey Alix, Im sorry we are not expecting more in the Huckleberry this year.

Why do you make a short option, but no tall option! Your tall friends (with 35" inseams) are tired of having cold ankles!!!

Hi, can you tell me the weight of a small regular and a medium regular. Also, I am 5’4and 135 #., would a small or medium be a better fit for me?

Hey Terri, The small is right about 9oz, and the medium is right about 10.5 they are very close in weight. I am also 5'4" and 135lbs and I wear a small regular, however, if you like the pant length to hit you around the ankle instead id order short pant length!
