Flattering and Fabulously Functional
Review by Steph

I agree with all of the positive reviews. I'll add that the ankle zippers allow me to roll my pant legs above my knee which is more handy than I realized. I have another pair of Stio pants like this that don't and I ended up fording the Stillwater River bottomless last spring.

Review by Sharon

The BEST pair of pants! I love the fit and style. I can't wait to wear them hiking! I do wear them to work and have received many compliments. The look is amazing, the fit is amazing and the feel is perfect! I'd love to order another pair! Size reference 5'7", 138 and over 50 and a size 6 is perfect!

climb, hike, travel
Review by skye

I wore these for about 2 weeks straight without washing while on a climbing trip in Mexico. The weather turned a bit sour on some days so I was climbing in 30 mph winds/ 40 F / some mist for up to 10 hours at a time. Basically, these pants RULE. They breathed well when I worked up a sweat on uphill approaches, looked nice while traveling in airports and foreign cities, kept the wind from freezing my legs off, were super stretchy, and managed to not get any holes as I battled with an army of cacti on enormous cliff faces. The DWR rolls water off nicely. My only regret is that I bought the tan color--which is quite stained with grime from flaking dirty rope over my legs a bajillion times. I got these on sale for ~$65, so they were an incredible value. I got a size 6. I'm 5'6", 137 lb, and have a very athletic/curvy body type. They fit like they were custom tailored for me. Perfect!

Fits like a glove
Review by Shea

These are very nice pants. A bit long for my 5 ft height but I Am used to that. I love the fit. When I slid them on, a big smile broke out on my face. No sagging, no pinching, pulling, or creeping. Easy to move in. Soft. Clean crisp finish but no noise. Good job Stio.

Awesome pants
Review by ArchCycl

I love these pants! I got them on sale - so last year's batch - and have put them through hell! I am an Archaeologist - and have dug coal filled privies (outhouses) in them, hiked, sledded, played in snow with pre-schooler, roughhoused with the dog and the new puppy. They did pill horribly on the thighs for some reason - but the pills are coming off and they aren't that noticeable. I am 5,7" and got an 8 - but could probably wear a 6 - although that size may be a bit tight until they loosen up from wearing. The 8 are great right out of the wash - but tend to stretch out a bit while wearing - but still look good.

Great pants!
Review by Root

Love the fit. I'll be wearing these often this winter. Can't wait to see how they perform out on thr trails snowshoeing.

Nice pant, could be better.
Review by Bonnie

I wanted these pants to work, but the butt was just not flattering. There are no back pockets, and the butt and upper thigh area are a bit loose. I am 5'10", and 140lbs, I ordered size 8 and the length was surprisingly perfect. The snap on the waist was a bit snug. The material seamed very versatile and yet stylish. These pants are a great idea, just didn't work for me.

dont want to take off...
Review by sarah ak

I waffled on these. Pricey, unsure how the sizes would work... but it turns out that I LOVE THEM. These will get a lot of use! I'm normally about a 4 or small in other brands, and the 4 on these fit perfectly, maybe a tad long, but I like that (I'm 5-5, 120 lbs, athletic). I'd agree that they are a little big in the waist, but I'm built pretty straight and that works for me. They are a bit stretchy, so probably quite forgiving of various body types. I totally agree with other reviewers, they are a great alternative to leggings -- and will easily go from outdoor activities to dinner. Only complaint, the front pockets are hard to get to lay flat -- so you can see them through the fabric.

The perfect pants
Review by Lake Girl

I hardly take these off. Comfortable, trim looking. Spilled drinks bead and roll off. Spacious zippered pockets. Just the right amount of stretch. Only drawback--they are cut very long and can't be hemmed because of zipper. I have to roll up an inch. Please make them in Short, Medium and Long.

Nice pant, not for my legs
Review by TLC

This is a great pant. I ordered it in a 6 the tan color because it was not available. That was too large for me. In the meantime a 4 in the grey became available which was the color I wanted and the fit was great but the style was not great for my legs. A little too snug for me from knee to ankle.

Live in these pants
Review by Hannah

You can do a lot in these pants; scale a mountain, go for a walk in the city, lounge around the house. They will always make you feel comfortable. I've been living in them since I bought them and am very happy with the purchase. Thank you, Stio!

Wanted to love them!
Review by Outdoor woman

Very well made pants and I love the cut and look. They just didn't fit me correct. Based on the size guide, I ordered a 6 and should have ordered the 4, which I normally wear. Pants were too large in the waist. I have an athletic build, smaller waist, strong legs. Extremely good quality!

Great pants
Review by CAWelch

Really comfortable and long enough for me...I'm 5'11". I've worn them once in the snow for sledding and they were plenty warm. Planning to wear them multiple times this winter for activities like snow shoeing, ice skating and platform tennis.

Love them!
Review by Dh

These are great pants. Light, extremely comfortable and seem pretty sturdy, not sure about Knicks and tears. Just returned from trekking in Patagonia and they were perfect in rain and sun. Ordered another pair in black!

Flattering fit!
Review by Rettie

I was so happy with my choice in the Dulcet pants. They are a great alternative instead of always wearing leggings. They not only preform well in the fall and winter climate, but are also comfy and cute! They form to the body and have a wonderful stretch in the material.

Dulcet Pants are fantastic
Review by skier

I have been living in the Dulcet pants since they arrived. They are fantastic for all winter activities. The fabric is amazing, the cut and details are perfect.
Thank you Stio!

Review by BigSkyOhio

These are truly a slimming pant. They run very true to size, on these I would recommend not sizing up as I do on many Stio bottoms. The zippers are total quality adding a fashionable look to the pant. The fabric feel of the Dulcet pant is one of luxury wrapped up in a functional soft shell pant. The length is perfectly long for my 5'7.5" height. At 145lbs size 10 is the deal . . .

Just perfect
Review by grnmtngrl

Love these! Length is great (5'8", 33" inseam, 135 lbs ) and fit is as expected for a slim fitting style. Will be hitting the trails (nordic skiing and snowshoeing) with these and love the stretch and technical aspects in a pant I can easily wear for in town activities too.

So comfy and they look great to!
Review by skateski

I feel all dressed up in these and yet they are as comfortable as my scrubs. They repel water and can travel in my suitcase, but still look good!

Great wardrobe addition
Review by Ninja

These pants are perfect for the baseball game, a cold winter day with great boots or dressed up for dinner in the city. They are VERY flattering (everytime I wear them, I'm told I look thin) and very comfortable and easy to care for. They are also great travel pants. I am a size 8 and the 8 fits beautifully!!

Love these!
Review by Jackson Gal

I just purchased this pant today and I'm already wearing them. I think they re going to be a great year round pant here in Jackson, for cool morning/evening summer hikes and x/c skiing etc in the winter. Fits true to size and feels like yoga pant. Love them!

sexy and tough
Review by Emilie

These are awesome. The fabric is really stretchy, they feel more like yoga or running tights but with fabric that can stand up to hardcore wear and cold wind. I've used them for x/c skiing and snowshoeing. I'm 5'8 135 and a size 4 fits well.
