Similar to the reviewer from Houston, I am looking for a pant that is lightweight & quick-dry for trip to Africa. I ordered Kuhl, Outdoor Research, Merrell and Prana. I am 5'6, 130 lbs, 37.5 hips and typically wear size 6 pants. I am always looking for pants that hide (or at least don't accentuate) the large hips (saddlebags). Based on other reviewers' advice, i ordered in sizes 6 & 8 depending on the pant. I will paste this same review on each style I purchased as well as I found Houston's detailed review v helpful. Kuhl, Vala sz 8: Best job overall of hiding saddlebags due to very relaxed fit, but this causes the pants to be a little less stylish looking. I accidentally ordered the short, which definitely was too short for me. As these might be comfy for a long plane ride, I might re-order these in regular length. Kuhl Bandita I ordered in both 6 & 8 as I liked the styling best when i looked at them online. I still agree the styling of these is great, but I seem to be between sizes. The front on both sizes had lots of wrinkles across the front that I didn't care for. The fabric is a bit noisy when you walk. The pocket details are really nice and the zip off leg detail is very nice & minimized unlike some of the other convertible pants i've tried. Kuhl Kontra, sz 8: This is one of those Kuhl Kurve pants for "hippier" women. The inner tie is nice to tighten the pant around the back where it typically gaps. Cute stitching detail on the pockets. NIce fabric. Good length. Only drawback is the excess wrinkles across the front. Outdoor Research Clearview Pant, Sz 6: Liked the fabric a lot. Feels more like canvas duck whereas all the others feel more like ripstop material. These gapped quite a bit at the back and where a little on the short side. They'd probably be great for someone less "hippy". Prana Halle, Sz6 in Cargo Green: great color and very stylish. These would definitely be awesome on someone without hips. I may keep these anyway though 'cuz I really like the style. There is an inner tie to tighten up around the back gap. Good length, not too low of rise. Warning: these pants really stunk like chemicals when I 1st opened the bag, but the smell dissipates. Merrell Belay Pant, Sz 8, Color oyster: Really disliked these pants-they should stick to shoes! The color was a medium cool grey. They were a bit short even though they are bigger size than I normally wear. I thought the angled side zippers would be more flattering, but they weren't. They looked like "mom" pants, gapped in back, and the zippers were clunky & bulky

I needed a pair of travel pants for an upcoming trip to Vietnam. I wanted something that would not be too hot or require ironing. These pants fit the bill, nicely. I like that they are flattering, but not too trendy/youthful (being 41, I'm looking for classic pieces). Regarding fit: I'm 5'5", 120 lbs, 24" waist, 35.5" hips, and the size 2 fit just right (I'll need to wash them in cold water and line dry, to be sure they don't shrink even slightly).

I love these pants! I love that you can wear them as capris or as pants. The material is comfortable and slightly stretchy, great for any time of the year. I only wish I had discovered these sooner! I have them in 2 colors. The fit is very flattering and a perfect for me. I'm 5'4" and weigh 122 lbs, I ordered a size 4.

I'd also recommend: Prana

Great pants. Like other reviewer said, these are not ideal for long hikes where you want lots of pockets. However, pants are made well and very comfortable if you just want nice looking outdoor pants.

Very comfortable pant with a medium rise. The Prana pants had a very low rise and legs were much too long. These are light and dry very quickly. I wear them to volunteer at animal shelter where it's very hot and dirty. They clean up great!
