Want my compass pants back!

Pros

  • Great Color

Cons

  • Waist Flares Out In Back

Best Uses

    Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Trailhead Pants, Inseam Options:

    I tried this replacement for the compass and I'm throughly disappointed. The material feels slightly heavier, there is no built in belt so it gapes away from my back, and the pockets are now at a spot that they part open unless you are standing perfectly straight. I've tried all the other pants in the EMS store and none fit like the compass pant. Hope they come back because I won't buy these pants. Definitely not an improvement.

    Poor replacement for the Compass pants

      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Trailhead Pants, Inseam Options:

      I went to the EMS store in search of the Compass pants and found these to be the replacement downgrade. The back of the pants buckle out a bit and there's no belt or drawstring to close the gap. My biggest peeve with these pants is there is only one attachment on the pant legs (rather than the two on the Compass pants) to secure the pants when rolling them up. When hiking with such a design half the pant leg unravels. Very disappointing

      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Trailhead Pants, Inseam Options:

      The fabric of the Trailhead "feels" thick, but they are a very light and breathable pant. Personally these would be better for cool weather hiking for me as I heat up pretty quickly and prefer items with more layering possibilities. The roll up cuff option is neat, but not sure how useful I will find it, unless I'm at the beach. (Now there's a thought...)
      So far have just worn them to the office (its pretty casual), but would actually take them out on the trail. Fabric seems durable enough to offer protection without pulling or tearing from every day trail obstacles.
      Rise is a bit high giving me a gap at the back, but this is a problem I have with most pants. Rest of the fit is fine.
      And huzzah for a 31 inch inseam! Long enough to touch my shoes without dragging in the dirt.
      Looking forward to getting these out of the office and into the woods.
      Oh, and normally color isn't a bit thing to me, but the Pelican color fabric is too transparent. Everyone would know I'm wearing my Sunday undies on a Tuesday.

      Bring back Compass Pant!

      Cons

      • Pockets not deep enough

      Best Uses

      • Travel

      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Trailhead Pants, Inseam Options:

      Compared to the Compass Pant this doesn't cut it....not even close. While I like the fabric of the Trailhead...since it's not as shiny or noisy as the Compass Pant....there are several things lacking. First, the pockets are pretty useless, several times things.....important things like my wallet and cellphone.....have fallen out. The pockets aren't deep enough and open easily (poke out) when sitting or even standing/walking.....the Compass Pant had a velcro closure on the pocket and it was deep enough and didn't open (poke out), plus it had a tiny pocket within the main pocket that also had the velcro closure. The Trailhead has a little pocket outside the main pocket and it's OK, but not as discreet and certainly no velcro closure. Pockets are VERY important to me with my career and travel, they're NOT a fashion statement but a functional necessity. Next, the belt issue which has been mentioned by others. Thank goodness the Trailhead has belt loops because I must wear a belt with them. The Compass pant came with it's own, easy buckle belt that could go through the TSA x-ray without problems and didn't need to be removed for washing....great belt, stayed put, fast release buckle. And finally, with the cargo pockets so visible on Trailhead when I wear them to work it's quite noticeable that I'm wearing cargo pants (a bit too casual). At least with the Compass Pant I could wear them to work because they didn't have this issue. BRING BACK THE COMPASS PANT, but consider using the Trailhead material and color variety.

        These lightweight pants are comfortable and water resistant. I love the tab to keep the pant legs rolled up while fording small creeks.
        My friend liked mine so much she bought a pair for herself and for her daughter.

        I purchased because I really liked the previous version of these pants (or the pants that they replaced). I'm happy that the belt was dropped. But the waist line and "slimmer" fit doesn't feel right all all.

            Having just returned from a great hiking vacation where I wore my EMS Compass pants nearly everyday, I headed to EMS today to get another pair only to be told they were discontinued and the Trailhead pants were the new replacement. While the Trailheads look nice, they don't fit at all the same. They sit lower and are not nearly as comfortable on the leg when rolled up. Please bring the Compass pants back! You can't improve on something that is already perfect.

            Bring back the "Compass"

                  Tried the NEW "Compass Pants Replacement," and all I can say is, "Not the same pants at all." Material is too thick, pants gap in the back and they do not fit the same way at all. So disappointed since I wear my Compass pants all the time and have recommended them to all of my family and friends. Please bring back the Compass!

                  1) Miss Compass. Unfortunately, you didn't make sizing comparable to Compass, so when I ordered the Trailhead to try it, I had to return it for a larger size.
                  2) Fit poorly. Was psyched to get more Compass pants, but won't get more of these.

                  1) Meant to replace Compass Pants. You made a new pant, though, that I had to return for size, because your sizing is not consistent with Compass sizing.
                  2) Less tailored than Compass. Disappointing.
