Disclaimer: I like my hiking pants loose and gender neutral people. For those of you who want them to fit like some jeans you wear to the club....no. Usually a size 4, I ordered a size 6 and while they fit better, meaning comfortable in the waist and loose, they were still too short in length and the crotch-y area wasn't...lining up? It felt like it needed to be higher. Now I am around 5'6 and a long-legged person, for those of you with normal to shorter legs you'll have an easier time with sizing. I ordered a size 8 next which will no doubt be long enough, loose enough, and hopefully not too big in the waist. The adjustable belt is a super neat bonus. Other thoughts: The pockets aren't super deep in the front but are lined with mesh. Also, the seam where the pants zip off feels a little weird at first but you might just have to bond with the pants to get more comfortable (or suck it up because you wanted the kind that zipped).
