The pants sits at or below belly button, so waist measurement above belly button is not the same. I have not been riding in the pants due to temperature in 20s and 30s. I however, have been wearing them as regular jeans and they are comfortable.
I have wanted a thigh bag for years and finally bought this one. I blinked and POOF, it was here! The size is generous - probably fits size 22 comfortably. The thigh strap can be adjusted by using the loops on the side of the bag. Plenty of room for money, smartphone, lipstick, etc. :) You won't regret this purchase.
These Pants run a on the small side, but I was told that in the write up. I ordered size Large, I was sent size X Large. I had no problem returning them and getting the correct size, All in all my experience with your store was a favorable one. THANKS, Nancy
After reading the reviews by other customers, I ordered a size 4 long. I am quite tall and have great difficulties getting my length and fittings. I usually wear a size 4 and decided to take the risk. The jeans were a perfect fit. The waist had a bit of gap but not that bad. They had slots for CE knee pads, the jeans are thick for maximum protection. I absolutely love them. And quite stylish too. Wish they had more female jeans or different colors to buy.
I loved the pants when I bought them. There was a little bit of room in them but I thought they would be comfortable. Also, after reading previous reviews I hoped that the snaps would stay done up. NOPE!! I think they're magnets!!
Next problem is I'm 5'2". They were at least 3 in too long. So I cut them but then I realized there is no Kevlar heat protection where I need it. I will now take them to a tailor and have the snaps replaced and the Kevlar I cut off put down the side of each inner leg to keep the leg from melting, which it already started to do. So if you are over 5'4" great summer pants. Not waterproof!!
