Wonderfully light weight and fits great!

I only gave these pants 4 stars because I haven't had a chance to wear them out in the rain yet, but if it were solely on fit and quality I'd give them 5 stars! I am about 5'8"/180lbs and normally wear a size 12-14 pants. I ordered the XL and I like the fit very much. The crotch is a little long so I have to roll the waist band down once to get it to where I like, but the band is relatively thin so rolling it doesn't create an awkward bump around my waist. They're a smidge tighter on my backside, but comfortably (and fashionably) so. They're a straight leg baggy pant, though, so don't expect them to fit or look like flares. Think more like wind pants or crunchy sweatpants :) I don't think I'd be able to wear bulky jeans comfortably underneath, but with some leggings or tight active wear, they'll be perfect!

The fabric is very light and seems like it will be breathable and durable (although I can't say for sure until I hike in them). And yes, they make noise. They are waterproof so naturally they will be a little "swishy".

I'll try to update this after hiking in them for two weeks in Ireland. Hoping they work out as well as I think they will!
