Love these capris, came here to get a second pair. The description says there is velcro in these. There is none that I have found. There IS a drawstring closure to cinch up the waist. Also, I think these run big. I'm about 125 and 5'5 and I usually wear a 6 in MH, but I got these in a 4 and still have plenty of room. I didn't want them to fit snug, so they fit just right for me. These are great for banging around in the house, walking the dog, or doing yoga. I live in TX, and the fabric is very light and stretchy, so I can even wear these in the summer and be comfortable.
