Rated 5 out of 5áby catcove The best
I live in cold snowy windy climate. I never want to take these pants off. They are warm and cozy with just the right amount of room for movement. I am 5'6" and weigh 140 and the large is perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 Great XC Pants
These pants are awesome! They are very warm and the snow barely sticks to them if you are in powder. I used them in below 0 degree weather so I wore thermal leggings underneath and I stayed warm the whole time. I was looking for something to keep the snow off my ankle since XC ski boots aren't very high and these do the trick. I only wish there was an option to order tall sizes. I am 130#, and 5'7" and the medium is slightly loose in the waist but the small would have been way too short. All in all, does what is advertised!

Rated 3 out of 5áby working Winter pants for exercise
Fit is not ideal. First pants I've had where the back pulls down -- has not happened with other pants. I do like the lined windproof features for winter hiking and skiing, but will need wear suspenders.

Rated 4 out of 5áby kungatharpa Very useful pants with a rise that's short
I've owned a pair of these for between 10 and 15 years. I use them a lot in the winter for cross-country skiing, bicycling and birding. They're warm and windproof.They have obviously held up though have stretched out and the fabric does not look that good any more. I bought a new pair and the fit has improved in some ways but is worse in others. The lower legs are not as tight and thighs not as baggy (the old pants look more like jodphur horse riding pants) but the rise is definitely short. It makes no sense to have low riding elastic waist pants in spite of what is fashionable.I want practical pants that will stay up and not bind when I sit or bicycle.

Rated 5 out of 5áby UtahActiveGirl Essential item for most cool weather activities.
I am about to purchase my second pair of the Sporthill XC Pants. I use them heavily during the winter and not to mention, early Spring and late Fall. The legs are just the perfect snugness that I use them for mountain and road biking and don't have to worry about the fabric catching in my chain. The fabric is breathable but still effectively blocks out the wind. I also use them for XC skiing and snowshoeing and to my delight, I find that unless we have a really wet, falling snow, they keep me warm and dry. Because I easily wear them 2-3 times a week during the season and wash them as often, I can report that they have held up to all of the washing. I think I have had them 2 or 3 years and they are just beginning to show some wear. Best winter clothing item I have ever purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5áby FitNic108 Perfect fit, great material.
These pants fit perfectly, not too snug, not too loose. Enough room to put a layer underneath and still have flexibility to move freely.
I am 130 lbs and 5'31/2" tall. I purchased the mediums. If I would have went with the size chart and waist recommendations and chose Large the pants would have been too big. So if that helps you out great.

I love these pants. I can go hiking then go to the store. They are my everyday attire on our fall foliage vacation. They stretch, to be comfortable not Baggie

Rated 4 out of 5áby 1RuggedMaineGirl Great winter pants, unsure of the fit though...
These are awesome for snowshoeing and winter hiking, they are warm and move well. The only issue is I don't know how they are "supposed" to fit? I bought an XL (I'm 5'3" and a solid, fit 160 lbs) and they are a little baggy in the seat and legs. Luckily there is a draw cord in the waist, so they don't sag at all, but I'm still not 100% sure if I'm going to keep them or return or what.

Rated 5 out of 5áby laura100 happy with my purchase
I was in a quandary about buying another pair of these XC pants because the new ones are not exactly the same as the old ones (of about 10 years ago). However I ended up being lucky and happy with my choice. I am 5'7", long in the crotch, short in the leg, and weigh 137 lbs. My old pair are medium. I bought medium, petite because the petite specifications matched my inseam. The waist is below the natural waistline but not too much and I can live with it. They are lovely and cosy like the old ones and wash very nicely. I don't find the zippers useful at all but not a problem. I put long underwear underneath when it is colder than -8 centigrade. I also contacted Sporthill by email from their website with questions and was satisfied with their responses.
