I work in archaeology, and it is difficult to find a pair of pants built for women that are durable, functional, comfortable, and flattering all at the same time. These pants are all those. I've convinced 3 other women, all different shapes to give them a try, and they are hooked too! Over 3 years of daily abuse, thorns, 800Km+ of wilderness, bends, squats, and tumbles into ravines... and only now the first pair I purchased are giving up on me.
Not fond of these pants I now have to wear for my uniform. Waist sits way too low and my shirt is constantly untucked because if this. Every time I sit or crouch the shirt comes out.
I'm 5'4" with a 27" inseam, 30" waist, 39" hip/butt, 140 lbs. Got the pant in a size 6 with regular 30" inseam in Dark Navy. These pants have a lot of pockets, but the mobility is not as good as compared to the Cirrus pants. The waistband gap is bad, although the belt helps. The fit is the reason I've given it 3 stars, otherwise it would've been a 5. The material is thick and durable. However, crouching especially pronounces the poor fit for my body. It gets really tight at the knees and crotch, but a larger size wouldn't been too large for my waist. Held up well during a 3-day shooting conference. Will have to pull in waist.
I filmed a video review on these pants if you'd like to check it out :)
I just bought a pair of these pants to go to a shooting school. Please keep in mind, if you will constantly be putting magazines in and out of pockets, these pants are horrible for this purpose. The velcro on the pockets constantly get in the way of getting magazines in and out. I tried to tuck the flap into the pocket but that didn't help. There's really no reason to have the velcro on the back pockets especially. I have now removed the velcro off both the front and back pockets on my support side and have also totally taken off the flap. This will allow much easier access in and out of the pockets. There is also considerable length difference between the regular & long. I am 5'8", 128 lbs and bought the long but will have them hemmed.
I ordered 3 pairs (two stryke and one cirrus). I am 5'2" and 145 pounds, measuring waist of 31 inches. I ordered a size 12 in all three and was disappointed in how big they were (I normally wear a 6 in jeans). Took a long drive to the retail store to try on before before ordering again. Indeed, a size 6 fit perfect! Could go with a 4, but CC appendix with kydex holster.
Pants themselves are amazing, and once size was fixed, love them. Disappointed I am not able to return as I purchased them off of Experticity and the retail store was out of black and didn't carry the cirrus.
So the two stars is for the inappropriate size chart that clearly isn't true.
These are the best pants! Women's pants are generally not built for function - the pockets are too shallow or awkwardly placed. and if you do find cargo pants with practical pockets they are too bulky. This pant is functional with great pockets! And fits fantastic! I wish I had 7 pairs. Working on it.
Love these pants, I am a correctional officer and wear them at work. Only issue I've had with them is the don't last more than 6 month tops due to wear and tear.
These pants are amazing! I am an Emergency Room RN, and have bought every brand possible out there that claims they are quality, and have enough pockets for trauma shears, tape, your cell phone, stethascope, alcohol wipes, hand sanitizer, your work phone, scratch paper, and pens. These are the only pants that carry everything I need to have on me at all times. Hey, maybe run a special for National Nurses Week, May 6th-12th, that would be amazing! Of course $74.99 are about more than double what scrub pants are, but I know where I work, I get asked about my pants and I sent them your way! I will never wear regular scrubs again, they are also figure flattering. I am 5'9" 140lbs and a size 6 fits me perfectly, they are fitted on me, which is more comfortable for my line of work.
I am the only pit crew for a motorcycle drag racing team, these offer movement, pockets for temp gauge, air pressure gauge and cell phone, also water bottle without bulk and pinching. I have them in black and while the temps are in the 90's with humidity I find I suffer much less than when I used to where blue jeans. A bonus....they look so professional. Love them. They run long but with boots not a problem. Shed oil, high octane fuel and wipe clean between rounds.
I used to love these pants, and had several pair (about five). Unfortunately, the last time I ordered, the two pair I ordered ran small all the way through the hip and thighs. I sent them back and was told they were within the size variation allowed, and I could not exchange for another pair (this pair had been washed, the other had not). I was very disappointed by this, as I basically had a useless pair of pants that I'd paid over $70 for. I won't be buying any more of these for fear they won't fit and I'll have to send them back anyway.
