I normally wear a size Large (8-10) but opted for the Medium based on reviews. I have an athletic build and found these to be tight around my butt. I couldn't really see myself climbing in these since they feel a little stiff and squeeze me too much on my waist and calves. I could see these being comfy hiking pants for someone shorter but wouldn't recommend them to someone tall since the ankle elastic is tight around the calves. I liked the pockets and the Bordeux color is really pretty!

Not durable enough for rock climbing

Agree with the other reviewers that these run huge (I'm 5'9" and 125 lbs and got an XS and they were still big.) However, that's not my biggest complaint. These are not nearly durable enough to be considered rock climbing pants. I took a small spill on the approach in these pants and they ripped. (Contrast that with the Prana Halle pants that have been fallen in and put through the wringer for many years and still going strong.) They're also starting to split in the seam at the butt. (When you put the pants up to the light, you can see holes forming by the seam.) These are good for a walk around town or a walk in the park, but they don't stand up to being "rock climbing pants."

I ordered these with some other pants and I'm glad I did. I like that they are a casual athletic pant (aside from my normal leggings) and they are very comfortable. I'm 5'8'' 190 and the large fits great. I can wear them regular or sometimes I roll up the bottom once.

Go off reviews and you’ll do great at getting the right sizing! I bought these for my wife and she is 5’6” and 140 lbs and got her a medium and they fit perfectly. Maybe a tiny big in the waist but the drawstring saved the day there! Super cute pockets(her words) on the butt and doubled lined knees!

I was stoked to get these pants for my recent climbing trip, but bummed to find they definitely run large. I should have read the reviews first since this seems to be the consensus. I'm 5'7 and 127 lbs and always a true small or 26 in pants. These were huge, I'm going to try the XS and hope they fit better.

Comfortable pants

Before buying this product I did a lot of research reading other reviews. I am 5 foot 6 inches tall and I weigh between 145-150 lbs. I bought a Medium because one review stated that if you have thicker legs and butt you should go with your normal size. Other reviews said they were way to big and should size down. Definitely do not size down if you are shaped like me. The waistband has nice strings to adjust the tightness since mine tend to fall down if not tightened properly. The material is super soft and comfortable. I noticed after using them one time they do stretch a bit, but for my case I like that. The pockets are nice and big in the front and the back of the pants. I bought these for the purpose of lounge wear and for outdoor excursions. My overall advice is if you are thicker in the leg/butt area definitely stay with your normal size or even get a bigger size.

Just got these amazing pants today. I love these, very soft and comfy. I bought a small because I tend to shrink things. A xsm would fit perfect, but I'm one who likes a little more room in the thighs, these pants won't disappoint !!

Very excited about these pants but the previous reviews that they run large are extremely accurate. 5'5" 130lbs and S are a little big. I thought I ordered the gray and ended up receiving the captain/blue and I love them! They are super soft and I feel like I will be able to wear them for everything, might reorder the slate to have a couple pairs. Unsure of how they will wash up but the material is high quality upon first try-on!

Got these on an impulse- but they turned out to be my favorite pants. I wear them a few times a week. True to size, super comfortable and great range of motion. I wear them for everything- hiking, lounging, running around town. More stylish and functional tan yoga pants or regular joggers. I’m obsessed and will probably buy additional colors.

These pants won't work for anyone smaller than a size 4. For reference, I'm 5'9" and 125lbs, normally wear a size 2. Ordered these in an XS and they were roomy, then after a few hours they stretched and became massive. Really bummed because they'd be cute if they were smaller.

These fit true to size. I am a true small and they fit great, however expect a slightly baggy fit. The feel is very cottony and soft, perfect for lounging around or travel. Great overall pants, I only wish I'd gotten the black because the slate is a bit lighter colored than pictured.

I bought these in a Small after consulting the size charts, reading the reviews, and asking friends' for their own products' feedback. Pros: The material is comfortable and flexible, the cuffed legs and deep pockets are functional, and the color is rich. The fit works well with a climbing harness. Cons: The small is much too large for my body type. I have returned this pair and ordered an XS to give the pants a whirl in a smaller size because I want to love them.

I have such a hard time finding pants that are flattering and these are so nice! I have a slender athletic build, so finding well proportioned pants is rare. They are super soft, light, and durable. They are meant to be a little loose fitting but I wouldn't as far as to say baggy. I highly recommend!

These pants definitely run a little large. I'm 5'10", 160lbs with an athletic build. I usually wear size 8-10 pants and I ordered a medium. They are a little big in the waist, but I synched them together with the drawstring. If I could, I'd move out of my house and into these pants permanently. they're so comfortable and more lightweight than I was expecting. I want more.

Disappointed - fit is really off

I usually wear a 4 or 6 and based on other reviews thought the small would fit well. When I tried them on they were way too big with the pant legs bunched up at my ankles like they were made from someone 6 foot. I had my husband try them on to see if they were really as long as I thought they were. They fit over his shorts and the elastic band on the pant legs fit right around his ankle. Looked better on him than me! He has a 32” waist and is 5’11” so how is this a size small? Disappointed as I was pumped to try these out on a hiking trip coming up. Probably won’t buy from black diamond due to their size chart being so off. The quality seemed good and maybe these only work on certain body types so I gave it three stars.
