I want to express my frustrations with 90+% of reviews- if I’m looking to buy clothing- esp pants- online, I don’t care that they’re pretty. I want to know your height, weight, and size of pants that you purchased. If you don’t provide those details your review is a waste. Bonus points for providing basic measurements. This way I can actually figure out what size I want to order.
I’m 5’4” and ~130lb. My waist is 30” and my hips are 39”. I purchased the size 8 because I could only find one or two reviews that gave me the slightest idea about what size I should select. Despite not having too big an a$$, my thighs are pretty damn huge compared to what America thinks women’s thighs should be. In that regard, these pants don’t disappoint- very roomy :) I love these, but they are a little too big, and I think the size 6 probably would have fit better. The crotch sags, so I need to make sure they’re hiked up pretty far if I bike with them. Meanwhile the waist isn’t very snug so I mainly just fold it over to take up some of the crotch sag, which works fine. First thing that came out of a friends mouth when she saw them was, “maternity pants”. Haha. So true- the waist band is exactly like that! I like it! Everything about these pants is stretchy, it’s great.
The length is fine, and the ankle elastic is pretty tight, as some reviewers have mentioned. It doesn’t really bother me much. I’ve got insanely thin ankles tho, so if you’ve got cankles it might be pretty restricting. I’ve got enough room in these pants to wear a base layer underneath or wear my mid-size knee pads. The fabric is fun and comfortable enough. It’s water repellent, which is nice.
The thing that’s unfortunate is that these just seem like bad production quality, I’m sad to say. It doesn’t change my mind on having purchased them, but there’s threads and seams that are already broken and coming loose in multiple locations and I haven’t actually worn them mtn biking yet. It’s probably what you get for being made in Mexico and “cheap” ?! At only$120.
Love love these pants...they fit, are super comfy AND protective!
Although I have not yet worn these pants for mountain biking, I think they are my new concert-going pants! I wore them to a concert recently, and they are so comfortable, functional, and attractive. The fit is as described and they are as flattering as any of Shredly's other bottoms. Nice and stretchy for comfort, breathable fabric kept me cool in spite of the sweaty concert venue. Pockets are in all the right places so I could carry all my stuff securely without needing a purse.
omg i love these pants. theyre super cute, good comfy fit. nice amount of room for pads. good fabric ... of course. i think these are my new favorite mtb pants
These are my FAVORITE mtB pants. They are so dang comfy. Love love love.
Love the fit and function of these pants. Great for biking, climbing and travel days. Perfect pocket options. Great durability. Can get a little toasty in the sun—I wouldn’t look to them as “lightweight” or “breathable”, but perfect for cooler days. Not digging this pattern as much as I thought I would. I love fun patterns, but this particular one gives off more of a “pajama” vibe than I was hoping for. Still good overall. 5’8” 170lbs. Size ten fits perfectly
Excellent fit (size 8 perfect for 5'8" and 138 lbs). Super comfortable for mountain biking and nice stretch.
My wife wanted the pants but I bought her the matching shirt as well. She loved both of them and loves wearing them for riding.
Fit perfectly, moved with me, and got tons of compliments on the pattern.
