I am obsessed with the material of these pants. They are insanely comfortable and seem really high quality, I don't anticipate they will wear out quickly. They are pretty lightweight and definitely more comfortable than the Taclite EMS pant. However, the fit is completely different so I had to return my original pair and purchase a different size. I first purchased the same size as my other 5.11 pants, and they were a size too big and WAY too long. I'm 5'9" and I have always had to purchase a size long. However in this pant, they were so long that I couldn't even hem them to fit because there was a pocket all the way down by my feet. These pants are a definite improvement over the other women's style in my opinion. There is more room in the hips and butt area and they are more flattering. I think the specifications on the website should list the measurements for easier ordering!
