I wore my newly bought Hudson Jeans to Smokey Mountain, and it sustained three days of hiking and horse-backing riding while providing me with great comfort. At 5'4", I bought the petite size. The length is great for wearing hiking boots and 3-inch heels. The fabric is medium thickness and very soft. I highly recommend this jeans!
I love Hudson jeans but found that I had to go one size down. All depends on whether you want a more snug fit or something looser. They do stretch with wear so I preferred a tad more fitted in order to wear with boots and not have the knees all stretched out.
