I received these pants in the mail not to long ago. I'm normally in between sizes 10 and 12. I ordered a 10 based off the measurements and they were a little snug. I really wish I went up to a size 12. I really do like these pants, but they are to right for me so I suggest going up 1 size.
After reading many sizing reviews, with no experience buying tactical pants, I decided to get a size 4 Long, which seem true to size and fit great (I am 5'7", 130 lbs, 34" inseam). These even are long enough that I may choose to hem them up an inch depending on the boots I wear with them. For reference, I normally wear a Patagonia size 4, Outdoor Research size 4 Long, and Prana 4 long (but have to hem them a bit). These pants are a little snug in the thighs and wide in the waist, like many reviews say, but are stretchy and my co-workers that wear them say the pants stretch out over time.
I am a park ranger and do hiking patrols, staff the ambulance and serve on search and rescue missions. I like these pants as a casual uniform NPS green pant for their versatility and function. I tried wearing Prana pants when not wearing Class-A uniform pants and found myself missing the necessary pockets. These pants are stretchy enough to allow a wide range of motion, durable, fit well under a climbing harness, and have enough pockets for gloves, keys, notebooks, IDs, etc. I did wish they sat a bit higher on my hips though...but, I'm glad I tried them.
I've purchased multiple pairs of these and they seem to last me about a year before my thunder thighs wear them near the inner thigh close to the crotch. They are very comfortable and great for additional accessories with up-and-down loops on top of the front belt loops which work great for my badge and key carabineer. I prefer to get longs, but the regulars fit with my boots just as well.
Not at all happy with the fit as they are too tight. Had to order the size 20 long, even though I'm not that big. I'm 5'9" and proportionate to my height, so a size 22 would've fit me, but it only goes up to 20. The waist is too low and although some women would appreciate that, I am not one of them. There are so many choices for men's pants and not enough for women. Now I will have to buy men's pants and have them tailored.
I bought these 5 months ago and the crotch is entirely torn. My jeans lasted longer than this. I remember hearing them rip when I squatted to pick something up. I work an office job! My fiance's tacticals have lasted him for years, I expected better from this company.
I will try the regular ladies tacticals but I will NEVER buy these again.
I recently purchased the Stryke pants at my tactical store as I already have 2 other pairs (black and khaki). Because I already knew my size I did not try them on in the store and was extremely disappointed when I put them on for work to find that they were significantly tighter than my other pairs. This fit actually interfered with the practical use of these pants.
I need to say that I absolutely love my other 2 pairs, but am disappointed to now own an ill fitting pair for this price that I cannot practically use.
The Stryke pant is so comfortable. They fit well and are light and stretchy. I love how they are water resistant, I got rained on and the water rolled right off my pants. I highly recommend these pants!
I had a terrible time getting a pair that fit. I ordered my normal size, which was too tight. I ordered the next size up, which fit beautifully, so I ordered another pair in a different color. Those were easily an inch smaller and sat a lot lower on my hips. I had to wear them because it was 2 days before I was leaving for training. The size difference was annoying because it meant my holster and magazine holders were a good inch lower on the one pair which would affect my draw and reholster for a little bit. As far as the comfort and quality of the one pair (khaki) I love them - 5 stars. But the fit of the second pair (storm) rates only 3 stars.
I ordered a pair of these because the pants I'm issued at work do not fit me. I am pleased with the fabric and workmanship. They look very nice on. Thy would be perfect if they were a little more fitted at the waist. Every time I move or bend, I have to pull them back up over my behind. I wear a belt, but since the legs fit fairly snugly, and the hips and waist are looser, they just metrically gravitate downward. The crazy part is that this is normally the opposite of how pants usually fit me. I'm built slim and very straight.
The Stryke pant is my favorite because it really fits your body. The TacLite pants are a more loose fit with wider leg and the Stryke is more form fitting. These pants fit good, feel good and more importantly, LOOK good. You want to look sharp in your uniform and these pants do that. I've been crawling around on floors, out in the cold, in the stifling heat, and this is the only pant I will make the investment in because they are that good.
