Function well, wish back pockets were bigger

I like these pants. Function well, fit well. I wish the rise was higher and I wish the back pockets were bigger. Actually, I wish all my dovetail pants' back pockets were bigger. Perhaps the pocket size doesn't increase with the pant size? I wish it did - both for looks and functionality. I took these pants on a 4 day backpacking trip, wore them everyday, they held up great. If it had a higher rise and bigger pockets I would buy 2 more pairs for work.

Sizing - I am a 12 in these, a 10 in Anna Taskpant, a 12 in Britt, 12 in the fleece lined overalls.

Great pant for the summer heat

Dovetail has been my go to pant since I first tried them. The new Day Construct has made the summer heat bearable. I am with everyone else who has dropped their phone numerous times through the hammer loop. I am going to be sewing the loop closed as this is truly a problem. Aside from that, these pants are a working girls best friend and I am asked all the time what kind of pants I am wearing.

Pants where just what my wife wanted and needed but it would be nice if they had a few more colors.

Well designed in most areas but overlooked a few

I work on a ship in Bermuda and I am able to wear these pants year round. They keep my legs protected from sunburn and cuts on deck, but are breathable enough in the heat and dry quickly if I get sprayed. I try not to wash them very often, because my other Dovetail pants have faded quickly in the wash, and I am sad to say these are no different. Another interesting note about their coloring is they are VERY sensitive to bleach - I was cleaning with bleach one day and I guess some droplets from the spray bottle landed on my pants because they're speckled with yellow dots now.

I usually pull my pants up on my hips as high as they go, and there is too much room in the waistband of these pants to stay there, but I've grown to like the way they fit when they're slouched lower on my hips where they seem to like to sit.

The only places where I think Dovetail missed the mark is with the placement of the hammer loop (mentioned by another reviewer) at the same location as the phone pocket. Luckily I have a hefty phone case because I can't count how many times my phone has slipped through the loop and hit the deck when I thought it was in my pocket. The other is that there is no belt loop reinforcement - just one run of thread from the sewing machine - and one of the loops came unstitched the first time I put the pants on. Luckily I know how to use a needle and thread!
