So I just took these pants out of the package and tried them on one time and I can just tell I’ve found my new go-to pants. I’m glad I followed the reviews and ordered a size up because I got a 14 long and they fit PERFECTLY like they couldn’t fit any better. I am normally a 12 with a little room to spare. With that being said, I’m not a very curvy girl so I can’t speak for anyone with big hips or blessed with a big backside. I also ordered a long and at 5’11” I am shocked to report they are STILL too long. I haven’t tried them with boots but I am elated because I can never find pants that aren’t too short when I sit down. I’m using “too long” in the best way possible. As for how they hold up I can’t say just yet but just by feeling the fabric I can tell that they are incredibly well made! I was hesitant to spend $60 on pants but they seem worth every single penny already.
I have gotten these pants a while ago and have worn them a few times. I had to got up 2 sizes from my normal size to get the proper size for my waist and thighs. The pants were not long enough for a 30 inseam and the pant legs were very wide towards the bottom. They almost seem as if they flare out they are that big. I don’t want to have to get them altered so I guess I will just deal with it until I find a different pair of pants that work for me. I had tried them on with my EMS boots and they still look very wide at the bottom. Hopefully they fix this and make them more fitted towards the bottom so they don’t look flared out.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing back the twill EMS pants for women! My present twill pants were wearing out, although they wear like iron, and I was getting desperate to buy more. I do have 3 pair of the ripstop pants, but I really hate ripstop material. It is so cold in the winter and hot and sticky in the summer. So thank you once again and I am stocking up this time in case you do this again.
I have been wearing 5.11 EMS pants for a few years now and have loved them, however last years order had snaps that would not stay snapped and I noticed the pair I received today does not have a strong snap either. Please fix the snaps... the pants do not even make a "snap" noise because it is so loose and they unsnap within 10minutes of wearing them. Please fix the snap issue or go to buttons.
I wear these pants as a full time EMT on the ambulance and just WISH they would make them for women with curves! They fit well in the waist but always to tight in the hips.. Order a size up if you want a little room in the hip area, but be prepared for them to be to big in the waist of you do so. Frustrating!
I love these pants. The waist is neither too high or too low, and they have enough room in just the right places... IF you find the right size. But seriously, order 2 sizes up from your normal one. The "long" ones are super long, but of course they can be hemmed.
They also hold up better than anything else I've tried. (As a full time paramedic, I've gone through a few pairs of tactical pants.)
I'll be sticking with this brand... now that I know to order an 18 instead of a 14!
I love these pants, I purchased them a 3rd party vendor and was glad I was able to try them on first. I am a fit female with a larger lower body and slimmer midsection so I had to order a size up. I am comfortable with the fit and despite their being bigger in the waist they don't bunch up with my belt. I am able to move freely without worrying about tearing or being uncomfortable. I would highly recommend these pants to other female first responders, and do quite regularly. Thank you 5.11 keep it up!!!
These pants are awesome. When I'm working on patients, I can move easily in them and they are durable. The only issue I have with them is the size chart. When I went to order the pants, I followed the size chart and ordered the size that was suggested, but it was a size or two too big and I had to get them tailored. I would suggest ordering a size smaller than what the size chart suggests.
I have had these pants for 2 years now. The BIGGEST complaint with them is the snap not staying closed! This is even a complaint from those that have lost weight and their pants are too big! They do shrink. I have the pair that are put away to use for ceremonies and such. I have recently had to pull those out for a visit from the President and there is a HUGE difference in size. They do fade some but we wear grey polos or light blue button up shirts so it is not that noticeable. Will I buy again? Depends if I can find another brand that has done better. PLEASE FIX THE SNAP!!!!
I need to use this product everyday, and it is exactly what I'm looking for.....except it doesn't fit. I will be returning this product. When I ordered it originally I ordered a size up, and even then it was about 4 inches too small in the waist. If you have a straight figure, you might be able to fit into it, otherwise ladies the hunt continues.
5.11 please keep in mind that women have hips. Men are straight, women are curvy. I am NOT the only one saying this, please adjust your sizing.
