I do field research in the mid-west year round, and I need good clothing so I can focus on my work while out in bad weather. I got these bottoms last week and wore them for two days of -15C windy field work, and they were great. They're roomy enough in the legs and butt that they don't restrict my movement. The ankle cuffs are thin so I can pull my thick wool socks over them to stop any drafts. I can't speak to their longevity as I've only had them for a week. The waist is a little too tight, but not overly uncomfortable. My waist is approximately 28.25in where these bottoms sit and I got them in Medium.

I plan to use these when I camp/hike in mid-temperature weather - that "not quite warm, and not REALLY cold" weather. For me, that's in the 30F to 60F range, approximately. I will use them as a base layer underneath very lightweight hiking pants to keep my legs warm. I think they're going to perform very well for that task.
Fit of the size medium: I am 6' 0" with a 32" waist and 32" inseam, and weigh 170 lbs. These fit perfectly. Just tight enough around the lower calves to be snug, but not tight. They are not "skin tight" but not loose or baggy either. The one weird thing is the fly; when made it looks like the put some extra material here somehow. So it doesn't really lie flat or stay closed. I don't think you'll want to use these without something else on over, at minimum, the upper section (short, perhaps?). Since I'll be wearing convertible hiking pants, it will be fine for me. Just something to be aware of.

grest product. Great sale price. Awesome warm plush fabric. I'm a female that purchased these wanting more colors of the same in the womans version, same great pants as the woman's , but FYI unfortunately there is a flap in the front for men to go to the restroom ! Woops ! Returned & bought more eomans in black. I love these pants in womans version. For anyone ordering any of the heavyweight they run 2 sizes too big. Order at least 1-2 sizes smaller.

This is my second time purchasing this product. The first time I purchased the bottoms in size X-Large and they were a little to long but I kept them anyway. I am 5'7". This time I ordered the Large size of both the bottom and the top and they are just perfect. These are well made and very comfortable to wear, as well as being really nice and warm. In my 60's I get cold rather easily and these fit the bill. I do wildlife and nature photography and really enjoy these out in the cold. I highly recommend them and will be purchasing an additional couple of sets.
