I gave one of these pants to a relative in a northern States. He liked it so much that he is planning to buy some additional ones when the colder weather gets there.
My elderly husband is cold all the time, but not with these high quality pants. There is no shrinkage that I can see and they hold their shape when washed.
These fleece pants are not terrible and are not great. They are a replacement (as several others have noted) for REI fleece pants that are no longer available. Since these are men's and I'm a woman, the fit -- particularly in the thighs -- is not as baggy as pictured. This used to be the same when I was a teenager buying men's Levi's. To get the thighs to fit a woman's figure, the waist was usually inches too large. So no surprise, but I had hoped they would be more of a relaxed fit, like the original REI ones. However, they are suitable, have pockets, ankle zippers and elastic waist that I was looking for for après-cycling wear.
