High quality construction, but would like a higher front rise

The quality of construction, materials and the design of the cargo pockets are perfect. The quality of construction is the best part of Wintergreen. That is why I own many products from Wintergreen ;). What falls short for me on the pants is the front rise. I would not call these low rise pants, as many of the popular brands like Patagonia and Kuhl are making, but they are still a little too low for me. The mid-rise of these are just OK. I would prefer the front rise to measure another 2 inches in height. I do like the silhouette of the legs being a bit more tapered than earlier models, but I really would like to be able to wear these closer to the belly button. Because of this I would give these 3 out of 5 stars. Thank you for listening to my feedback and I hope that one day there will be a model with a higher rise. If you make that, these might be the only pants I would ever wear ;).
