Rated 4 out of 5 by BeansRegular Additional Info
I reviewed these pants in February 2014 and am back to add some information to my review. I have now had the pants for 4 months and wore them almost every other day for the super cold and cooler days. I have washed them many times. I am a slim size 4 with straight boyish hips. I have noticed some pilling on the inside lining of the waistband that I did not expect to see after only 4 months. I wash them in cold water on a gentle cycle and line dry only.
Also, the adjustable waistband has caused some trouble in that the elastic pops off the button frequently and the waistband can suddenly loosen (I find the waist to be relatively loose as compared with the hips). Sometimes the elastic will twist inside the waistband and create a bunchy look. A few times the end of the elastic will pop off the button and slip inside the waistband and need to get fished out. I like the suggestion of a previous reviewer to leave one side on the last button and adjust only the other side, doubling up the elastic on the button at the end. I will try that or possibly tack the elastic down with one stitch on each end (so it can be easily removed if I need to change the adjustment at a later time).
My last issue is again with the length. I usually need a 32" inseam in casual pants, and the lined pants are only offered in regular length(30"), not medium tall (32"). I can make do because winter shoes are bulkier, but the 30" pants barely touch the top of my shoes. Please make these pants in regular and medium tall length. Also, please offer them in other neutral colors such as gray (medium and dark), olive, tan, brown.
Despite the issues I mentioned, I still love these pants and their stretchiness and warmth, and would heartily recommend them to others.

I bought these pants to wear playing golf in April in New Hampshire and they are perfect for that. They are warm and comfortable and have great large pockets (3 zippered) for all the things you need to have and keep handy. My only negative comment is that even with the inner waist adjustments, I find that the waist is a little large and they tend to slip down. Not a deal breaker though as all the other great things outweigh this one thing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Golfingfanatic Great for those early morning tee times, however
It would be nice if these came in anything other than black. My girlfriend has a pair in a nice maroon check. The fleece lining is soft and warm, the nylon like outside breaks the wind and keeps you dry.
Can't imagine golfing at this time of year without them.

Have worn these EXTENSIVELY through this tough winter -- both alone and with a wool underlayer, depending on weather -- cross-country skiing, shoveling, etc. No evidence of wear. Very comfortable. Only complaint is the (necessary) adjustable elastic band. For some reason, it pops off the button and I have had to fish it out on a number of occasions. I finally have one side on the first hole, adjusting it on the other side and then doubling back -- i.e. securing it through 2 buttonholes. Hasn't happened since.

I absolutely love these versatile pants. They are made of a rip stop material, have a thin microfleece lining, are breathable and have four way stretch. I brought them on a ski trip and they were the perfect apres ski pants. I wore them out to dinner and to the gym. They are my new favorites. I love the fit and the length is just right for wearing with running shoes or flats.

The front pockets fold out making the hips look bigger. Please make small horizontal pockets or vertical ones with small zippers. A little tight through the seat in size 12; 5'7", 150 lbs. Lining is warm and soft.

Rated 4 out of 5 by daculashopper Very comfortable but had to go up a size
These pants must run a little small. I usually wear an 18 but needed a 20 in these and unlike many of my 18's they are not too big in the legs and hips. They actually look pretty nice on although I was going for warmth and comfort not looks. I am happy with them...they are nice and cozy.

These pants are perfect for cold weather and travel. The stretch and adjustable waist make these pants very comfortable. I bought the lined and unlined in the same size. The unlined fit and I had to exchange the lined pants for the next larger size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by classic62 Best snow pants ever!
These are really the best. Roomy not bulky, warm but breathable.
They don't make a lot of noise when you walk! This freezing winter, I even wore them to work and they looked totally appropriate in the office. I appreciate that the lining is a little fuzzy so you don't get that lining chill when you walk outside. No need to order up a size, they are soft and stretchy.
