Rated 4 out of 5 by Sierra22 from Run small!! Just got these in a size 6, I checked the sizing chart and typically wear a BD small/medium and a size 4 in most pants.. they fit my waist/hips fine but tight in the thigh/knee area even with the great stretch, I wouldn’t climb in these. Also FYI for tall ladies (I’m 5’9) these sit above my ankle. Over all I think they have real potential and great stretch but still tight in the legs/knees, I’m a pretty lean but muscular build, I would suggest for an outdoor brand to make sure there is room for those ski/climbing muscles!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Becky from Love these pants! These are the best climbing or “regular" pants I’ve had. They feel like leggings but look SO much better on me. They are like a super comfy tricked out version of a women's Skinny Jean. I haven’t had them long enough to say thoroughly, but I can feel they are well made and the Cordura is what will make these last. They stretch in any direction I move and fit with my harness. I’m 5’5, 130 pounds with a 30-inch inseam and a size 4 fits great. They are slim fitting on my legs so that I can easily see my feet. I would love to see these in some brighter blue or green hues!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlexisCAP from Great fit and super comfortable I just bought these jeans and will definitely be ordering more. The fit is amazingly comfortable, and stretches just enough. I love being able to squat and reach with no "plumber's crack" in the back. I know the fact they are Cordura means they will hold up, but they are so light it can't help but make me wonder for how long. I look forward to testing these jeans at work, they gym and the trail. So excited to see how they do! I'm 5'7", @165 athletic, and 10s fit me well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MillieAntoinette from Comfortable, stretchy, and durable At first these seemed just like extra-stretchy and comfortable jeans, and I was wearing them around town... but I took them out bouldering the other day and the black granite rock tore up my skin and even put a couple holes in my shirt, but these jeans look as good as they did straight out of the box and they definitely took a beating out there. I never felt like my range of motion was limited. My only wish is that they were a slightly higher rise, especially in the back. Otherwise these are almost perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kelsey from My butt has never looked better I really love these pants. They look like nice denim, but are super stretchy, so no weird ‘jegging’ look here. I haven’t used them climbing yet, but I took them out for a night of dancing and they did not hold me back at all. They are the first jeans in a long time that have shaped me nicely. My only qualm is that I am in between sizes, which means I need to wear a belt, which is not ideal for climbing, but that is not Black Diamonds problem. I am 5’8” and 165lb, athletic build and I fall between the size 10 and 12 (the 12 is quite big on my waist). I’m curious to see how the inner thigh part of the material holds up, since I can already see some fuzzies developing (usually a sign that the pants will rip there) and I have only had the pants two months.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Adrienne from Really disappointing This is probably the most disappointed I've been with a pair of jeans, likely because of how hyped up they've been. I consistently struggle to find jeans that are large enough in the thighs but narrow enough in the waist. I really thought these would do the trick, but they're just another pair of stretchy jeans. I climb in them and they work fine, but I am constantly hiking them up. The thighs and butt are so tight that they create rolls in my flesh that makes it look like I'm stuffed into a sausage casing, but the waist has a huge gap of about 2 inches. The combination of these factors just causes the jeans to crawl off my body throughout the day. I'm going to have to do some elaborate tailoring for these to work. Don't believe the hype, folks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Maybe if I have a bigger bum Was really excited when this came, tried them on last weekend with so much anticipation, only to be really disappointed. I'm 5"1, 156cm, petite and got a size 2. Perhaps I don't have a bum but the crotch bit of the jeans were too long, and also it kept falling off while I was walking to the crag (15 min walk). Had to hold it up with a cordelette, tried climbing in it and it was still falling off =(( Good to know it fitted everyone perfectly, but not myself which is a pity. Might try to get it adjusted but long shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by thickthighssavelives from BEST. JEANS. EVER Wow. These are legit the best jeans I have ever own and worn. I have thick, athletic legs, a big butt and a small waist. It's basically impossible to find jeans that are comfy, accommodate my curves, and don't fall down. These check all of the boxes. I can climb in them, bike around town, and work day to day with no problems. Plus, they look killer. I get tons of compliments. I'm 5'9, 160 lbs and the 10 fits like a dream. I want every wash now!
