Very lightweight pants
Comments about GARDENER'S SUPPLY CO. Bug Me Not Convertible Pants:
I ended up returning this product they were way too small. I usually wear a 14-16, large to extea large and ordered these in a 16. I'm looking to replace a pair of lightweight Columbia khaki's that have served me well for 10+ years. The Gardiner's pair fit like size 12s, very tight in the waist and no way to adjust. I'd intended to cut-out the inner elastic cuff as I find it uncomfortable and not particularly necessary in my area. The fabric was very thin and I doubt they'd hold up in more rugged uses where they might catch on a branch or nail head, but I guess I'll never know.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Interior cuffs on these pants deter ticks and they wash and dry quickly so I can wear them in the garden the next day. They run a bit small so I had to order the next size up. But I highly recommend these pants!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

withstands many washing, flexible, light-weight, effective, comfortable
bought these after another bee sting
concerned that washing separately and drying just so keep these out of circulation too much

Love these pants
from Reston, VA
I love these pants and feel safe in the garden and the woods again. Lyme disease hit me hard and treatment was long.

The pants fit well but it is winter so I can't speak to how well they perform in the garden. Will have to wait a few months to see if they repel bugs.

These pants are perfect for gardening in hot weather. They're light and comfortable, and true to size. (5'4", 130lb and size 6 is just right.) Here in the NE USA I worry about ticks, but the interior cuffs on these pants make it easy to put socks over to keep those buggers out. The outer cuffs mean I still can still look nice at the same time. These pants are also good for some light hiking, though the lightness of the fabric may not fare well through brushy areas.

Living a Tick Free Life
from West Tisbury, Mass
After two summers of taking antibiotics for Lyme Disease in the Massachusetts woods, I now wear the Bug Me Not shirt and pants while gardening, confident that ticks find me and my clothing repellant. I've seen more ticks this year than past summers, but there have been none on me since I've been wearing these clothes almost every day for the last month or so.The permethrin treatment seems effective. The pants fell off of a hook onto a tiled walk one afternoon, quickly unearthing an unknown ants' nest. It quickly went from there being no ants to there being many hundreds fleeing the scene.The blouse snaps securely up into the collar, forming a sort of turtleneck, and at the sleeves. The pants have a hidden elastic cuff at the ankle for further safety. Add my boots and my permethrin sprayed sun hat and I'm good to go.The shirt and pants fit well and look pretty cute, though they do get a little dirty. The permethrin treatment lasts through 70 washings, so they can't be washed as frequently as I would wash other clothes. That's fine with me though.I really and truly think all gardeners and hikers and hunters and anyone doing anything in or around the woods should buy these products.
nice pants, waist a tad tight.
from Bloomington, IN
I haven't returned the pants, plan on trying to figure out a way to wear them because i like the cuffs so much.
