If in doubt about the size you should, I would recommend ordering a size up.
I was excited because as soon as I put these on, I finally had found the perfect fit! Unfortunately, the midnight navy is too dark. I wish these were made in dark navy to match my departments requirements. I even tried finding an outer carrier to match so there wouldn't be an issue but was unsuccessful. Great product! Just need another color.
These were purchased for me from work (2 pair) I have worn them for 3 years. They have been through heavy washing and they are just getting to the point of needing replaced. Perfect fit, I am 5'7 and 145lbs size 6. They are also very comfortable and the material, in my opinion is perfect.
I just purchased these for work but have not worn them yet due to them coming unhemmed. I have the regular STRYKE pants in the same size which I love. After trying these on for the first time I noticed they are a little bigger in the waist and thighs than the regular STRYKE pants which I don't see being a big deal. There is more room in the cargo pockets and the fabric is stretchy enough I can fit my tourniquet, pat down gloves, and a knife comfortably. I do like how the fabric is thin enough even in an Indiana summer with 90% humidity I don't feel like I'm overheating. I have always liked 5.11 clothing and thus far I don't see these class B pants being an exception. I'm 5'4" and 145lbs so I bought size 8. I have always had bigger thighs and butt but these pants don't restrict any movement wether I'm crawling through a window or chasing someone. I would most definitely suggest these pants to other law enforcement females.
I was forced to buy these pants due to uniform changes at work. I have had them for approximately 2-3 months and all of the seams are slowly tearing down the inseam of the leg. These pants are to expensive to have to replace every 2-3 months. I also know of about 6 other female officers who have had the exact same problem with tearing of the inseam and have had to also replace the pants after approximately 2-3 months of wear. I'm very disappointed as I usually like 5.11 gear and it's normally all I wear. These pants unfortunately we're a huge disappointment. I'm hoping maybe the men's version is constructed better and I won't have to replace them after 2 months.
