Admittedly, this will be a very user specific review, BUT if you are a plus-sized woman of normal height, these wonderful, warm, comfortable pants may, indeed, work for you! I am 5'4" tall, and--although I have fairly small thighs and calves--have to wear a size 22 in most leggings and pants, becau...

I was very happy with this purchase! Not only are the tights extremely warm but they are close fitting so that I can wear them under most of my jeans with no problem. I did order up a size - I'm 5'8 and 150 lbs and ordered a large and was very happy with the fit. Only complaint I have is that the pants lack give - don't expect to be doing yoga moves in these pants.

I originally bought two pairs of these base layers for an expedition cruise. They were the perfect base layer for temps 30-40 degrees F. They are smooth on the outside and so other layers go on easily. The real bonus for me was, I think they look great to just wear as leggings in the winter with a big over sweater. They really wear well and I have had the original two for years with only a small hole (which did not run) from where I caught them on something. There was eventually a little pilling on the upper thigh parts of the tights but seriously, I wore these a lot and they were washed and dried a lot. I just bought two more pair because I like them so much and am going on another trip, a bit more extended this time.

These pants are incredible, and I am not exaggerating. I moved to northern Michigan in the fall and was fearing the winters here because I HATE cold weather and snow. My dog, however, needs lots of exercise and happens to love being outside when it's 10 below zero. So, I decided to get the right gear up in order to go on long winter hikes with my buddy and the pants changed my life. I have walked her at least an hour 4-5days a week in these pants, no thermals or anything else (well, on top, yes, layers) and I have never once been cold at all. In wind you don't feel a thing either. And they are rugged: We hike through through the woods or brush sometimes and only a few days ago after 3 months of nearly daily wear I found the tiniest hole at the top of the leg, but it hasn't widened. And I don't sweat inside these either. I wear Chore mucks with them and they make a solid wall of warmth. For stats: I am 5' 11.5" female, 195# (yay, I dropped 10 pounds after so much walking!). They come down to around my ankle and I have even worn them with weatherproof trail runners on warmer days and they are excellent. I would say above 50 degrees they might be too warm, but I have to test that out yet.
I just bought my second pair I was so thrilled! They wash nicely in regular warm cycle, I never dry them, hang them and then fluff for a few minutes. The only small negative is the material has pilled, but I have worn and washed them so much it's the smallest drawback for how great an investment these have been. I have purchased a pair of cheaper fleece tights and they did nothing when it hit 20 degrees, so these are definitely worth it!! If you hunt, hike, cross country or like to do any outdoor activities, I highly recommend these pants.
