The Diversion Pant offers unprecedented freedom and comfort with extreme 4-way stretch, a gusset for movement, and an ultra-soft, breathable inner lining. It's our slimmest-cut pant, but your movement isn't limited.
I absolutely love Western Rise and have multiple pairs of AT Slim and Evolution pants. I was really hopeful for the Diversion pants but could not make them work for me. The material is great but the fit is a little off. I do not mind that they are slim through the leg but the seat is too tight. I felt like I was wearing low risers. Begrudgingly sending them back. I’m still a loyal Western Rise fan and will continue to buy more pants, probably Evolution or ATs and not the Diversion.
Hi Anthony, Thanks for sending along your feedback! We definitely appreciate it! First off, both the AT Slim Pant and Diversion Pant are our slim fit/cut pant models. However, the Diversion Pants' fit is tighter compared to the AT Slim Pants because it is our slimmest pant model. To answer your question, the waist of the Diversion Pants has 4-way stretch. That said, I would suggest giving them a few wears. As far as your Diversion Pants go, stretching with wear should be expected and is normal for all pants that have spandex/elastane in them. They do tend to stretch with wear, but will not "bag-out" due to the heavier fabric weight. I hope this info. helps and please feel free to reach out if you have any other questions.
love the product SOOOOOO MUCH!!
Great pants. Have two pair now. Will definitely be buying again.
These pants are super sturdy. While its 4-way stretch doesn’t match the incredible flexibility of my Outlier OG Climbers, the Diversion’s heavier fabric feels like it will last longer and show less wear. That said, I have two frustrations with these pants: (1) The waistband is nearly as rigid and inflexible as traditional jeans, in contrast to the rest of the pants. Despite my choice of a waist size that feels roomy while standing up, I’ve found the waistband digs in and can get uncomfortable while sitting down at a desk for long periods of time. For less than half the price, Old Navy’s Ultimate Tech Pants offer a stretch waistband that always feels comfy. Why can’t these? (2) As others have pointed out, the lack of inseam options at this price point is a bit disappointing. As a shorter person (29” inseam), I have to get the pants hemmed, as the fabric is too bulky to look good when rolling up the cuffs by 3 inches.
Hi Ethan, Thanks for getting back to us and for sending along your feedback! We definitely appreciate it! To clarify, the waist of the Diversion Pants has 4-way stretch.

They do tend to stretch with wear, but will not "bag-out" due to the heavier fabric weight. As for your other concern, we are planning to release shorter, longer inseam lengths in the near future and we do plan on offering a hemming service in the near future. We don't have a specific timeline yet, but we will be sure to let you know once those options are available. I hope this information helps! Please feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions on sizing or if there is anything else we can help you with. We appreciate your interest in our products and your support!
I have a couple pairs of size 33 AT Slims that fit very well, but wanted more stretch. So I ordered the 4-way stretch Diversion Pant in the same size. Since it’s designed to be slim fit, the fit was very tight—too tight for me. So I exchanged them for a size 34, which turned out to be too loose, so I ended returning them. Guess I need a 33.5. So that didn’t work out, but the whole process of returning and exchanging went well. WR’s customer service is excellent.
