"Great pants but tend to fall down a little"
These are great pants, love the material. They are so comfortable and allow for great range of motion. I'm normally a size 2 and I bought a size 2. They seem to fit great but as the day goes on they start to fall down. It gets annoying having to pull them up all the time but they still look good. Belt loops would be a plus but other than that they are great. A rock climbing harness works as a good belt though.
"These are my favorite pants this summer."
The previous review bashed the olive color but I had seen the garment in the store and liked the color. I also knew that my usual size was too small in these pants because I had tried it on. The store did not have a larger size, so I headed for the internet. 1 size larger than my normal size fits perfectly. The pants are lightwieght and stretchy and feel wonderful. The olive color is a good neutral color that goes well with all my bright tops. I love these pants. The service from Moosejaw was excellent. I ordered the pants on a Wed. night with expedited delivery and they were at my door on Sat. morning. I have had them on my body ever since.
I purchased two pair of these last year and I absolutely love them for the great fit - flattering and slimming and the lightweight, stretchy fabric. They're great for travelling because they take almost no space. This year I ordered the "mission olive" and I was shocked how ugly this color is. It's a green (not olive at all) with blue undertone. I like last years "earthenware", a warm earth color and was hoping for a nice olive. I ask myself why Patagonia makes such a great pant in such a non-feminine color. Needless to say I returned them just because of the color, besides that I give it a 5 star rating. Regarding sizing I am between size 2-4 and these fit me great in a size 4.
