These feel great for hiking, lightweight and stretchy. I bought 2 pair, a 10, which is my usual OR size, and an 8 because the 10s in black were sold out. The fabric gives a little so the 8s are actually a better fit. I like the way the waist rises in the back—they keep my butt covered when I bend over. I tried on the Ferrosi capris but didn't like their fit as much.
