I got these pants for summer hiking, so I wanted them to be light-weight and comfortable. It turns out that they are all that, but also very flattering. I am a petite but the pants look fine with the hem rolled up a bit and it actually stays rolled up! When does that ever happen? I love that the pockets zip; I don't love that there are no pockets in the back. I am 5' 3" 100 pounds and the size 2 fits perfectly (except they are too long - see above). They are easy to wash and dry almost instantly. Now I am going to buy another pair.
