They are made out of a wonderful wool weight, sort of like a soft thicker weight, densely woven tee shirt. I could see them being great for year round use, either dressed up or worn to bed, highly versatile weight and look.
I am 170 lbs / 5'4" and ordered the large in midnight, a nice deep navy blue. Typically the large will fit perfectly.
They were about 3/4" long out of the box but I knew if I washed them a three times, the length would have been perfect without alterations needed. From a shorter women's perspective, the length was not a problem.
They have a trimmer flattering silhouette. Not too loose that they would be confused with sweatpants if you wore them to the office and not too tight that they grab anywhere they shouldn't. The legs through thighs are a great fit with ample stretch to move around and run in.
The zippered pocket on the waist is a nice feature.
The waist is where I have a conundrum. I own several pairs of ibex pants: Izzy & Tavern for winter & the Synergy for year round use and some others in older styles all with differing waist band thickness and love them all. I don't think it's the cut / shape of the waist band where is forms a "V" in the front that is giving the issues, I think it is how the elastic was sewn in (sewn in with tension?) or perhaps a different type of elastic was used, or how it was tapered in too much. The wide elastic on the waist seems about 1-2" too tight. If they had added about 1-2" more elastic, perhaps they would fit better. Since the elastic was sewn in vs. one continuous piece around the waist, replacing it will be a bit of a chore & these might be returned. I am not sure if sizing up would solve the problem. I enjoy ice-cream and thus have a block shape at my waist, and when I put these on the elastic was excessively constrictive causing a major muffin top, not only did they made the sides look bad, after about 3 minutes, it was "ouch" these are too tight and I had to take them off. To have the waist band proportionally much slimmer, I'm guessing they would be best for a lady with an hourglass figure or someone who is fit or with a small waist.

Not what I'd hoped2017年6月30日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I wanted to love these pants. I imagined them to be easy and a little bit elegant -- much classier than yoga pants. But indeed, these kind of look like ... yoga pants -- except that they hang differently. They look a little limp. They are snug in the waist for me because the waistband actually hits me at the hip instead of mid-rise as it should. The material is comfortable enough, though it attracts every piece of lint, hair or dust within a mile and can suffer from static cling. I think they are better off as lounge pants at home.
Excellent merino pants!2016年7月10日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
These are excellent light weighted still warm pants. They are very soft. I already have many merino wool pants from both ibex and icebreaker. Never disappointed! The Amazon's price is unbeatable when they're on sale.

Wanted to love them as I think they would pack well and be a perfect travel pant, but the wast band made the fit very unflattering. Unfortunately, had to return.
