Liked these so much I bought a second pair.Needs real front pockets.It has the normal half length pockets they put in women's pants. My cell phone promptly crashed out of the front pocket. Anything you don't want to loose must be put in the side leg pockets.Nice for bicycle riding.just roll them up to keep away from the chain. Very easy wash and wear. Looks hot.
"Finally, Women's Hiking Pants with Usable Pockets!"
I need comfortable light weight pants for safari in East Africa, but as a photographer I want pockets, and not little shallow ones that everything falls out of. Who decided that women don't need usable pockets on their hiking pants? After an exhausting search I found these. When I received them I was happy to see that the cargo pockets are large enough for filters and spare camera batteries and the back pockets are secure enough for the expensive spare memory cards. Even the front pockets are deep enough.The fabric has enough cotton that it doesn't make that "swishy" sound that most nylon hiking pants make when you walk, but still enough stretch to make them comfortable. The waist band is a great design- a little higher in the back and dipping lower in the front. A great compromise so they don't look like "Mom pants" but you don't have to keep hitching them up. The fit is true. I ordered a size 6 regular length and I'm 5'6" and 128lb and they fit great. The construction is quality.
To be honest, I bought 2 pairs of these because they were on sale and they made my butt look nice. But, they also stood up very well on safari in Africa and while volunteering there with wild animals. They made me look good while climbing the dunes, hanging out with cheetahs, being climbed on by meerkats and pulled on by baboons. I found them to be suitable in all kinds of temperatures and the pockets easily held my camera, my passport, money, keys and a snack. And they are long enough for me at 5'8", which is an awkward height for finding pants that aren't too long or too short.
What can I say? I absolutely ADORE these pants! I took them to Iceland and that held up so well as I scrambled over lava rock, up glaciers, and rolled around on black sand beaches. Not only are they sturdy, they also fit and look great! I often wear them out and about and get lots of compliments on them. I am heading to Kilimanjaro and plan to get another pair before I go. Wonderful pants! I will say they are not the most light weight so if you have a tendency to get hot, they may not be ideal warm weather pants. But if you're like me and never have that problem they are perfect!
