I use these pants to do anything from ice climbing to kayaking or just wearing them on a casual day because of comfort and style. These pants fit great and if you have a unique body shape, like small waist and bigger thighs, these are the pants for you. I usually have a problem finding a pant that fits my waist as well as my thighs and these pants do both because of the drawstring in the waist line. Also, they tighten in the ankles so you can have a "jogger" look or if you like a boot cut, they fit for that as well. Great pants all around. Enough room underneath to fit a good base layer of youre going out on the ice or in a colder climate. Stretchy and lightweight yet durable.
