Fantastic value, good fit & features

I'm petite (5'0", inseam 28") and wear a size 8 Petite in most store brands, size 10 Petite in most designer brands. I really wanted Petite snow pants but didn't want to pay $79 or more to get them, so I thought I'd try these, in the Medium. Very pleasantly surprised by the quality and fit (not too loose, not too snug) and liked that I could easily adjust the waist with the soft velcro interior tabs. The zippered pockets are very roomy too - a big plus!
Yup, they're kinda high-waisted on me, but that's not a bad thing for snow pants since it helps keep your upper layers tucked in. And, they're too long but since the gaiter is joined to the leg about 5-6" up, I can just turn the pants hems under and machine-hem for a quick-&-easy fix without worrying about the gaiter. The legs are rather wide all the way from hip to hem, so if I were a more serious skiier, I might invest in something more fashionably-fitting. But these are perfect for the occasional snow-sporter or winter hiker who wants the protection & warmth but doesn't want to part with much cash.
