Being both an avid outdoor adventurer and working in an outdoor clothing store, I can confidently say that these pants are the best pants I have ever owned. From a humid, summer hike to hiking in 2 feet of snow in the Rockies, I couldn't have been more comfortable or capable, either time, without my Naulo pants! The four-way stretch fabric is incredibly forgiving on steep, rocky climbs yet they have always kept their shape and have never compromised fit, no matter how many wears I have fit in between washes. These pants are made with a higher mid-rise waist, unlike many other hike pants that run with lower waist fit, and I could not be more pleased with the added coverage. The high nylon content is incredibly durable and has held together through any scrapes and blunders I've encountered. I am 5'4", 120 pounds, and whereas I am usually a true size 2, I sized up to a 4 for a little extra baselayer room. On a recent hike through the snow covered Rockies, I simply wore a thick wool baselayer tight and my Naulo pants, no gaiters, which kept me both warm AND dry throughout the entire hike, even when treading through nearly 2 feet of snow. I seriously could not recommend a better women's specific outdoor activity and lifestyle pant, and that's coming from someone who works with several different outdoor brands daily. If you're looking for a pant that can do it all and look good while doing it then this is the one for you!
