So close.

I have purchased 3 different styles of dovetail pants/overalls. I really want to love them but I just can’t. There’s always one little thing off, something that seems minor but ends up being really annoying. Like many other people said, with these pants it’s the waistband. The elastic refuses to stay put and really should be sewn in place. I have to adjust it with every wearing. I also wish the pockets were lined, I often carry keys in my pockets at work and they started wearing the material probably the second time I wore them. It’s frustrating that so much attention seems to be paid to the design yet these little things get overlooked.

That being said they are extremely comfortable to work in and fit pretty well.

Would recommend with reservations.

I wear them everyday!

These pants are the holy grail of ‘work’ pants. I wear them for days on end between washes and they hold their form. Thick and durable, yet soft and stretchy. I get loads of complements on them too!

Incredible Fabric but Flawed Waistbands

I am 33 and about 100lbs, these are the only Dovetail pants I have kept since the other styles are too big. I bought these in March and wanted to wait a few months before reviewing after wearing them regularly at the packing warehouse and out working in the forest.  

These pants are warmer than I anticipated and really heat up if you are just sitting in the sun on lunch break but when I am working, moving, and sweating they breath well. Drawstring eventually came out, I don't miss it and wondering why Doevetail even bothered? Zippers on pockets are perfect, there are ample pockets for pen, clippers/box knife, etc.  I would generally be annoyed about the length but I like that the pants stretch over my boot laces and stay put there, keeping debris out.   The fabric durability is probably most impressive to me, I was bit on the shin and the back of my thigh by two dogs while I was working outside and although my skin was broken and bleeding, my pants are totally fine & undamaged and clearly protected me from a worse injury.

COMPLAINTS: These pants need one more designated large phone pocket since mine hangs out the back pocket... AND after about four weeks wearing/three washes & air drying flat, (like many other reviewers) the inner waistband perpetually rises, rolls or folds but ONLY on my right side, whereas the left side lays comfortably flat as it should, I will sometimes stop for several minutes while working and fuss with it because it can be very uncomfortable at times,…

Amazing, but could be better

*Love the stretch

*Love that they fit snugly over my boots to keep crap out

*Like the fit, fits my hips but is a bit loose in the waist. That being said, they fit my waist better than most women's pants. For reference, I'm 42 in the hips and 28 waist.

*Dislike the band. It rolls. It really aught to be sewn in.

*Run a bit warmer than other work pants in my opinion, but that's too be expected cuz they are basically sweatpants.

I love that I can bend down and make irrigation repairs or climb around the trailer without showing my crack or having to adjust my pants all the time. They tend to ride down on me, so I do have to adjust them every once in a while. And I definitely feel warmer in them than my other dovetail pants. Also, the string for the band came out in the wash.

Flexible, durable, and comfortable!

I bought this pant because I hate stiff canvas pants but even plain utility leggings don't cut it. I needed pants that would be useful while I do heavy gardening, working with animals, and hold up while we continue our home construction and renovation. They are really, really comfortable! I love the soft, wide and high waist band - no butt hanging out! The knees are so durable - I was kneeling down dragging across on concrete, in wet mud and they washed up looking brand new! The pockets are great! They are a little long for me but I just fold up the extra length and they fit into my boots perfectly. They stretch out just a little but keep their shape even after several wears. My only complaint is the thin drawstring in the waistband can cut into my waist sometimes and it can come out and it can be difficult to pull it back through because of the spandex layer blocking the hole in the waistband. It would be nice if the holes for the drawstring were reinforced with a metal ring to make it easier to fish the drawstring back through the hole.

I am a short, curvy gal and I was worried that these would not be fitting for me as many women's work clothes aren't. I'm 5'3", 150lbs, size 8 pant and the 6/8 pant was perfect for me. I actually ordered a size up at first because I was concerned about it accommodating my curves. But it is so soft and stretchy that I actually needed my real size! Dovetail was great about the exchange process as well. I highly recommend this pant!
