Built for women, by women, the Vertx® Phantom LT Pants are patterned after the Women's Original Pants in an extremely light-weight format. The 6.5-oz. 65% Polyester/35% Cotton mini Ripstop fabric with the addition of IntelliDry™ technology causes sweat and liquids to repel on the outside while wicking moisture away on the inside to keep legs cool and dry.
I'm a size 4 in these and most other pants. But there's something about the way the rise and waist are cut that make them darn near impossible to get on and off unless your waist and hips are almost the same measurement. The partial elastic waist should give them enough ease, but it doesn't. I can't imagine what "nature breaks" will be like on a humid August day. Fix this issue, Vertx, and I'll buy more.

3 stars for the design, would be 5 stars if they fit true to sizing chart. Size 18 lists a 40 waist and 49 hips. I am 37 waist and 49 hips. These pants fit my hips but the waist is 2 inches too small. If you order these pants take your waist measurement at least a few inches below your belly button. The waistband material has a little stretch to it but not much. Too bad I'm at the top of the size chart because I really like the design, very cute!
Beware of sizing

Awesome pants, really nice cut, and they wear really well... one problem: I am a consistent size 10 in any pair of pants, but the vertx smoke grey ones were uncomfortably tight and I could barely get the desert tan ones done up... could be my body shape, but I see the other customer review had the same problem - going to try a 14 this time.

These pants look amazing. I have 5.11's, and tru-spec's to compare them too. 5.11 make me feel like I'm wearing mom jeans, a little high waisted and narrow at the ankles. The tru-specs are great, but very low waisted. These are a true straight leg, with the waist at the perfect spot for me. But sizing... I'm a 10 is tru-spec, 12 in 5.11 and in these I needed a 14 to be comfortable. I also ordered vertx regular tactical pants- the cotton/ spandex ones, and I'm a 12 in those.
