I had just returned from a work trip to NYC where I had purchased two pair of amazing jeans for too much money. I was shopping for technical gear on Backcountry and thought I'd blink in at the jeans, just to see what there was. I bought these, thinking there was no way in hell I could buy a pair of jeans online that would actually fit. (I don't know about you, but I don't find jeans shopping very fun at all.) Well, these not only fit, they fit great (true to size, long enough for my long legs - I'm 5'10"). They fit better than the really expensive ones I bought in New York. I love them more and wear them more. And seriously, you cannot beat the price. I'm now a Vans fan.
