I usually love outdoor research and wanted to love these pants. They are half the weight of most others. But there is no way to cinch the bottoms to make them wearable for shorter people. A 29 inseam usually hits me perfectly, so if these really were 31, they should not be swimming on me. But they are at least 6 inches too long. At least with other brands that don't have petite, I can fasten the Velcro or snaps at the ankles and wear them. These have none! And they are wide at the bottom. Very disappointed!
