When these arrived by mail, I could barely believe how light the fabric was! Wow! I happened to buy them during a heat wave and was so grateful for such light fabric, I really thought that I couldn't have found anything better for summer capris. The fabric also has a little give, the waistband is really comfortable, and the pockets are good and deep. Unfortunately, I'll be exchanging these for a different size. I'm 5'5", 130 lbs, with a 29" waist and I bought the small which fit me a little too generously. In particular, the fit from waistband to crotch was huge and it was uncomfortable. I also have large thighs and I need material between them to prevent chaffing and the small on me did not help in that department. But these are perfect in every other way so I'm going to give them another shot and try another size.
