I am surprised to read so many reviews about these pants being baggy. I absolutely love these pants! I am 5'5", 108lbs and wear a size 2 regular. I did try on a size at one point which was a bit more comfortable in the waist, but baggy in the legs and hips (so I guess I can see where those people are coming from). But I sized down and now these pants are super flattering! I've worn these pants backcountry ski touring, and am currently sitting at work at the hospital in them. Literally comfortable and perfect material for sports and adventures, while stylish and nice enough looking for a professional setting. My one complaint is the super high waisted fit. These pants sit right below my belly-button when standing, and rise up even a bit more when I'm sitting. And the waist is a bit tight, even on my slender waist. The material is tough and durable, and is water resistant. I love how hidden the vents are, you can't see them at all unless you unzip them. The pockets are huge! Which is a rare find in women's pants. Both front pockets and the leg pocket fit my phone no problem! I love this. I haven't worn these when it is warm out, but I imagine they might be a bit hot because the material is a little bit thick.
Overall I recommend!
I got these through the Kickstarter campaign. When I first received them and tried them on, my first impression was that the fabric felt very nice, really soft, and the pants do have several nice features. At that point, I had only tried them on briefly to make sure they fit. (size 10 tall). Now after having worn them for a hike, here's what I want to say. First, as my friend would so eloquently say, these are "poopy pants"; in other words, picture a toddler running around with a saggy diaper. For me although the waist and hip are fine, as others have mentioned there is just too much extra material in the rear. Second, I did a hike with a lot of hills and I did not find them comfortable in the crotch, despite it being gusseted. I don't know if the rise is wrong for a tall person, or they just don't stretch like the should, but now these expensive pants are relegated to flat walks only. Cannot recommend, especially considering the price.
I purchased an 18 regular. The waistband fit fine, but the entire rest of the pants were floppy and baggy at every point. I might as well have ordered MC Hammer parachute pants. Not in the least bit form fitting or snug. And I am a completely average shaped woman. Do not buy
I purchased these through a kickstarter campaign. I was a bit concerned about the size. I am 62 years old, a 31 inch waist and 5 feet tall. When you are over 50 your body changes and good fitting pants can be more of a challenge. Firstly the fabric is amazing; it has a stretch but not overly stretchy and the smooth 'hand' of the fabric is comfortable from the moment I put them on. However and as (or more) importantly: they FIT REALLY WELL. Even me. The waist has some 'give' in it which is always a good thing for us women regardless of our age and the cut and design are slimming. I only wish I had ordered a second pair when I had the chance to get the kickstarter price. I am not inclined to recommend clothing to my daughter or friends but I am definitely recommending these Satu pants.
These pants are incredible. I love the feel, the look, the texture, and how well they hold up and laundry.
I did have a bit of an issue with sizing. According to the sizing, ordered a size 10 which fit in the waist but was too large in the hip. Knowing that I would love the pant, I purchased a size 8 which is a bit snug at first in the waist but is a much better fit.
Customer service responded quickly with an exchange form and a pre-paid label for return.
I'm a happy hiker and can't wait to see what's next on the horizon for Outdoor Vitals and technical wear.
