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.
Heads up, according to the size chart I'm a 6-Reg, but my gut told me I should get a 4-Reg. I'm very happy I did. The fit is great overall. A bit long in the leg for my taste, but I blouse my pants anyways. Overall, very pleased with the quality and style of these pants.
I've tried many pairs of work pants -- they're hit or miss. These are definitely my new favorites, and I plan on ordering more.
I ordered up a size based on other reviews but found that it wasn't necessary -- they were a bit loose in the hips. They do have some stretch which is nice.
For reference, I'm 5'5", 140lbs. I ordered an 8 initially, but found the 6 to fit much better. I carry most of my weight up top and don't have much of a butt.
Luckily, I was able to try on both the Stryke and Cirrus pants at my local retail store before purchase. I bought 1 pair at the store and 2 more online for more color choices. The prices are identical.
I am 5'10" and 170 lbs. with a muscular build. I normally wear size 10-12 in pants and found both styles true to size. However, I need a size 10 Long in the Stryke, and 12 Long in the Cirrus. The 12 in the Stryke was too loose in the waist, and the 10 in the Cirrus was too tight in the thigh. Both styles are flattering to my shape and very comfortable while bending, squatting, climbing and lying prone. 4 stars as I am unable to rate on durability at this time as this is a newer purchase.
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.
