I use these everyday for work. Im a Kayak Instructor in Alaska where the humidity stretches from 50% to 100% daily. I've worn these everyday since I received them in the mail. I absolutely love how they fit, stretchy to fit my thighs and the elastic waste-band tie to tailor my waist. They're breathable, dry almost immediately and are the comfiest pants I own! Will purchase more in different colors! I do wish there was a military green color option. Btw I'm about 5'9 155 pounds, small waist and thicker legs and I think a size 8 is comfortable. Hope this help anyone in doubt.
