Love these pants - bought my first pair and a few weeks later I bought a second. I sized up in my main pair for climbing - solely to leave some room to layer up on cold climbs and hikes. I wear my smaller ones probably way more than I'd like to admit. I am pretty short so I do have to roll them but the rest of the fit is great and will definitely be buying another pair in the future.
I've been climbing for almost 20 years and I've never found a women's climbing pant that I really like, which seems wild. The Women's Brise Jogger is the best I've found and checks off so many boxes I've been looking for. It's attractive, clean, and modern looking while also meeting the technical features I want- plenty of stretch, fabric weight, durable stitching. My only critical feedback is that the length is very long if you're short (I roll mine twice and it works), and the waist is still a bit tight, but it's much improved from the first iteration. For reference, I'm 5'1 and wear a 24/25 in bottoms. Size 0 fit is preferred, but I sized up to a 2 so that waist wouldn't pinch so much.
I bought these pants for hiking and climbing and ended up wearing them for almost everything. I love the wide stretch waist band and the gusseted crotch. No wedgies or digging. The stretch ankle keeps my pants from sliding up while I'm climbing or even just lounging. Deep pockets I can actually put stuff in! Pockets! I wear these on the golf course now and the pockets are great for golf balls and tees, while the stretch ankle keeps the pants off the wet grass. New favorite pants ever.
As someone who usually struggles finding hiking/outdoor pants that fit both my waist and hips, these nailed it. I'm 5' 7" with a 30 inch waist, a 42 inch hip, and athletic legs/butt. The size 8 fits me perfectly. There is no awkward thigh pulling, waist gap, or camel toe here. They are super comfortable and I thoroughly enjoy hiking or just lounging in them. I can't quite give them five stars though. The material is a lint magnet! I have the cobalt and mahogany colors from the Kickstarter batch and anything remotely fuzzy gets stuck to these pants. They also stretch out the longer you wear them, especially the longer you sit in them, which may be a plus for some people, but I think it makes the pants look a bit frumpy by the end of the day.
I *love* having comfortable pants that look great! These are comfortable enough I've worn them to bed before, and I get unsolicited compliments on them all the time - they look *that* good. That said, I'm really disappointed that after one day of pruning fruit trees and moving a firewood pile, the fabric on my front thighs has numerous pulls in the threads. If it weren't for the advertising hype - all those awesome climbers wearing them on the rocks - I might've been less surprised and less disappointed. I have the olive ones from Kickstarter and am ordering another pair in black, thanks to the current sale. My olive ones will be the work/workout/hiking pair and I'll try to be kinder to the black pair. And just a suggestion: add another zip pocket on the other thigh? Thanks!
