I like these. The big leg pocket is great for a map on the hike and the rest of the pockets are equally useful. I would lie if I said these pants make me look like a million dollars but they are the kind of pants you spend seven days straight wearing while backpacking and still feeling happy in. I am European born and bread so I checked Fjallraven size chart and ordered EU sizing which fits me as expected. I would not necessarily agree with the conversion of the sizes but I am a 38 and I guess wear 6 US so I would order the size you usually wear. They come without hem so you can alter them as needed. Even the tallest of you ladies will probably find them long enough.
Based on the other review I ordered 2 sizes up and got a 12 (im normally between an 8 or a 10). I just recieved the pants, and I am swimming in them. I'll return them for an 8.The fabric is the same great G1000 fabric used in all the fjall raven clothes. I have one of their jackets, and its indestructable.I love the color (dark gray), and the super long inseam. They are straightleg pants, so I think will look good off the trail as well. Looking forward to getting a smaller size!
"Very thin material for the price, and approximately 2 sizes too small."
These look very tough in the ads, but I ordered them expecting they'd withstand some pretty active rock climbing. The fabric was simply thin cotton that would rip on the first sharp rock. Very expensive for the quality. Also, the size conversion says to subtract 28 from the size, in my case being a 38 or a size 10. Now I know us Americans eat too much and are probably fatter than the rest of the world but, I couldn't even get these up!! Quality just isn't there....sorry charlie!!
