    I was really exited about these pants when I ordered them. A long inseam that will keep me warm, awesome!...or so I thought. Actual inseam on a medium felt like possibly a 33', which could have been ok, but when they were washed and dried they shrank a lot. The fit of the waist remained the same, but the inseam contracted 3-4 inches. My pants now resembled capris. I no longer wore them out of the house, but around my apartment was acceptable. After another 4-5 washes, the pants had become so pilled they were uncomfortable and just plain ugly. I couldn't even give them away. They went in the trash. I don't recommend these pants for anyone.

    Love these to wear under ski pants, and apre ski. I ordered a S (usually wear a small, sometimes a medium- 4 or 6 in Lululemon, etc). A bit lower rise than I like--maybe one inch lower--not a big thing but I'd rather have a higher cut for skiing.

    These were shinier than I expected and didn't fit me right. I like that they have a medium-low rise, but the waist was loose and the thighs were snug. (Maybe it's me...) And the small was too long for me (I'm 5'2") Also, I didn't like the "Hot Chilis" logo stamped on the hip. The fleece inside does feel nice. But I'm returning these.

    Just wore these pants for a cold day skiing. They are incredibly comfortable, and can be worn on their own for apre ski. The boot cut can be challenging to fit into ski boots, I wore them outside my ski boots, but if there is alot of powder this could be an issue. They have a low waist fit, ok for me, just be aware if you prefer a higher waiste

    I love Hot Chilly's fabric. These are warm, very comfortable. I wear a size 0-2 in pants and the smalls fit great, not tight, plenty of movement. They do however have a slight sheen (like a dusty car) and I have noticed piling. But they're so comfortable and perfect weight for travel and cold weather running/walking that I bought a second pair anyways.

    These little black pants are the best. I got some for myself and my 15 year old daughter decidedd they were also perfect for over shorts after basketball practice. Now we have two pairs...

    I am 5'8" / 128lbs and the small is too small. I need to exchange for a medium but then the waste band may be to big.

    I was hoping to use these for running or skiing in the winter.
    They were fleece lined, but the outer material wasn't what I had expected. It's the shiny polyester that gets cold quickly and doesn't look that nice for that type of pants. There are also no pockets to stash keys. Sorry to say they were returned.

    I was really excited to see the 35" length on these, but I ended up returning them - I usually wear a medium/tall, but ordered the small based on a couple of the reviews. Not wise. They fit, but were VERY snug. I would have exchanged, but in person, the fabric wasn't exactly what I was expecting. It's sort of shiny and seemed like it would snag easily - it was catching on my fingers as I put them on. Might work as a baselayer if you don't mind the extra bulk of the bootcut, but not something I would choose to wear out in public as a top layer.
