Couldn't Be Happier
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!

They fit like they are made for women, pants that fit like these are hard to come by.

Love these. Want more.
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.

I LOVE these pants. I can wear them almost daily whether it's casual wear or for climbing in cooler weather. The fit has definitely changed from last year's style which ran a full size larger. I purchased another pair this season in the same size (Small), and they fit tighter in the butt/hips, and feel less stretchy - I would've sized up to a Medium (my normal size) if I had known about the new fit. Whether you stay true to size or size down probably depends on your body type. If you have a big butt and wide hips, stick to your normal size. The one thing I dislike about these pants is how quickly they fade and look worn out. I've had a pair for 8 months and they are already faded and getting white at the knees.

Someone told me I was cool
Love these pants for climbing or general wear around town. I got a compliment walking down the street on how cool these pants were. Have a relaxed fit but with the waist and ankle elastic sit on your body nicely. Durable fabric for climbing with cool things happening on the knees.

I am usually between sizes depending on the style and fabric of the pants, so I went with my smaller size due to the reviews saying to size down. The pants do stretch for the perfect comfortable fit. I have used them for mild hiking and climbing, but I don’t know that I would use them for anything too vigorous. They’re comfortable while still being flattering and not too slouchy. I would recommend these pants and I have them in three colors and want to invest in more. For reference I am 5’10” 190 lbs with athletic thighs and butt and I purchased a large.

I'm 5'2"/120lbs and in between an XS and S. I ended up getting the XS and found them to be a tad snug in the thigh/butt area but not so much that it affects movement. Otherwise these pants are wonderful! I love the reinforced knee and jogger-style legs and the quality feels top notch. Can't wait to take them outside as the weather gets better! Nice deep pockets too, though I can say I don't use them while climbing.

Don't Size Down
Heard really great things about these pants, so I thought I give them a try. First impression, they are a cozy material and the cuffs make for a cute fit. Sadly I had to return them. I normally wear a 26 or 2 in every pant. I heard from friends that they run big and can be baggy. I sized down to an xs and the fit was too tight. The legs fit great, but the butt and front were too tight for comfort. I think a small would of fit much better.

I followed previous review instructions and sized down, ordering a small, which was still too large. The pants were too wide on the bottom to stay up on my calves, and went all the way down to the bottom of my ankle. The waist only fit because I could tug tightly on the drawstrings, and the pants sagged well past my bum like mc hammer. I exchanged for an XS, which fit me proportionally as the pants look on the women in the photos.

Durable, comfy and large.
I am 5'7 and 120 lbs and the XS are almost too big for me. They are definitely baggy and not necessarily flattering. If I could, I would have sized down! Overall though, these are comfy and durable pants. The knees have additional fabric and the fabric is sturdy. I wear these climbing but also just around town and at camp. They are pretty versatile if you want comfort! I would recommend these if they fit you well!

GF loves them
From my GF- I love these pants! Super comfortable for climbing and hanging out. They fit well and are super cute.

As others have mentioned, definitely size down in these. They run large and will stretch with use. That said, if you get the sizing right, these are great pants not just for climbing, but for everything in between. These are super stretchy and comfortable and allow for full range of motion.

best pants ever, but size down
I LOVE these pants. They're kind of long, but I love the way they look rolled and unrolled. Perfect for climbing/hiking. I definitely should've sized down, but they're still wearable with the drawstring cord. I love the baggy fit with the tapered ankles, because it's baggy enough to move around in but you don't have pant legs getting in your way when you're climbing. Would definitely buy again.

Listen to the reviews and make sure you SIZE DOWN! I am usually a medium in pants but had to return these because It looked like one of those Subway commercials on me. I would say size down a couple sizes, an XS might have worked better for me. I was looking for some material that was a little more lightweight so i returned them. But they seem like very durable heavy duty pants perfect for climbing.

The People Were Right !
Was really excited about these pants for climbing, but all of the reviews have mentioned that these pants run large and they are correct! I usually wear a medium in pants because I have pretty muscly thighs and a booty and I thought a medium might still work for me despite the review warnings, but I was drowning in these pants. The drawstring was great because I could have cinched them up in an emergency, but when you have to cinch them that much all the material bunches up and is pretty un-flattering.

I tried these pants on in the store before purchasing them and found that the medium fit perfectly. They felt so comfortable, the material is durable, I love the reinforced knees, and the stretch felt good for climbing. I really wanted to love these as I've been eyeballing them for so long, but they just don't cut it for me. I wore them on an easy climbing trip and noticed they had stretched an excessive amount around the waist just on the approach. I kept having to retie the drawstring to keep them up because they kept sliding down, which was a total pain. Once I got on my climbs, it was just too annoying. I wonder if maybe I have a defective pair? I haven't worn them since, but may give them another shot around the house or around town. Definitely purchase a size down!

I've used these a few times so far. From hiking on a cool day in the desert to climbing in the gym, these pants are good for everything! Super comfortable, soft, and, in my opinion, the right amount of looseness. I could have probably gone down a size but I do like a little baggier pants. And they seem to shrink in the wash nicely. I got the captain color and found that they were darker than in the photo.

I ended up returning these because they are not what I was looking for. They are a nice loose fit and seem very comfortable. I would say they run big. I am normally a medium in everything women's and these were falling off. I needed to tie them for them to stay up.

A bit long for the shorties
I love these pants but they run a bit long in the leg. The waist kind of rides low as well. The material is super soft yet durable and just the right amount of stretch, and they totally do the job. The color is my favorite thing about the pant for sure! No big logo which I enjoy. I just wish the waist was a bit higher and actual pant length was shorter. I am 5'4" and had to roll them at least once to be at a comfortable length.
