Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look Slender with Comfort I bought these 2-3 years ago for fishing and summering in western states mountains and suburban life in the Arizona desert. Attractive fit, yet comfortable cut and fabric moves with you--like mobility in a fly-fishing boat and clambering up a riverbank. Phone and other contents fit in zippered pockets. Sun & bug protection are a big plus! Cinch ankles compensate for extra length (5'4", 135-145 lbs.). And, they still fit OK with pandemic weight gain! Orvis size 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look and that it helps keep bugs away These are called wading pants, but I wear them all day long. They are cool even in very hot weather. I love the pockets! And I love the fit! What I love about them most is that they are treated to keep bugs away, particularly tics. I highly recommend these pants!
