I like these exercise pants and definitely needed to go a size up, as the other reviewers stated. I got them in black and really am curious about how the Olive/Khaki ones look. They are that "noisy" kind of treated fabric (almost like a thick windbreaker) and have very cute features. I was just surprised that they weren't low-rise, like in the photo. If you're looking for a low waist in your athletic pants, these are not for you. I snipped the elastic to make them looser around the waist so that I could wear them lower, and that worked pretty well. I think they're a little pricey for what you get, but I'm still happy with my purchase.
