This is my second pair. I purchased the white ones a year ago, and liked them so much I decided to buy the black ones too. These pants are very warm without feeling bulky or constricted. The fabric is strong and waterproof without feeling stiff. They are a durable warm pant that fit great and are stylish. I get a lot of compliments on them. I think they run a bit small, I usually wear a 6 but I ordered an 8 because you never know if you want to wear pants or something more substantial underneath. Well, I'm glad I did, because I will not be able to wear pants underneath...only long johns, but that is ok, because they are so warm and cozy.
