Travel System Knits: Women's Pull-On Pants
Waist is tight
The design has changed from the first pair of the travel knit pants I bought from Norm Thompson. Instead of the 1 inch soft elastic waistband the pants now have about a 2 inch elastic band with very little stretch. If your hips are more than 10 inches larger than your waist, you will undoubtedly pop stitches in the waistband when you try to put them on or take them off. Or go to the bathroom several times a day. The waist is tight, tight, tight. I kept them because the fabric is one of the best I've found in this type of pant - thicker than most and high quality. The waist is so tight I can't tuck in a shirt, so I'm letting the shirts hang over. Also, these were the correct length for me so no hemming. If I weren't desperate for new pants and if I'd found decent quality from somewhere else these would have gone back. I wish they'd go back to the original style.

Too small overall.
This travel set (pants and jacket) run extremely small. I am a medium in another pants that arrived in the same order and was surprised that I couldn't come close to fitting the travel pants. The jacket was slightly small.Overall,not a positive experience.

Loved theses but too small in waist
I loved this whole travel outfit. So sleek and classy. I returned my petite XS pants. I am a petite 2 as the waist was way to small. I weigh about 100. I reordered the Psmall and they are great! Super for airplane

Size much smaller than last time ordered
I order these pants throughout the year. This time the size is much smaller/shorter.

The fabric is nice and the fit is great. What more can I say! I only wish they made a matching tank top to go with the black so I could wear a jacket or sweater and it would all match. I'm leaving for a trip and rest assured, these pants will be going with me. I guess I should have bought a couple!

When I first felt this material I was a little skeptical, but, when I put these pants on they were very comfortable and very slimming. I am 5'2" and the 26" petite inseam is perfect with low 1" heel sandals or a 2" heel. The rise is a little high for petite if you are not high-waisted (as most manufactors feel petite people are) but not bad.

Petite is a bit lengthy, but I love these pants!
Although the "Petite" size is a little too long, I love these pants! I love its looks, its quality and comfort, and the fact that it's wrinkle-free. Great for traveling! I wish it came in more colors like white, navy, and brown.
