I love these pants! The reviews sold me but putting them into action was the clincher. I normally wear a size 18 (47" hips) but sized down to XL and they are perfect. I just finished a walk by Georgian Bay where it's -1 (-8 with very windy windchill), and they held up well in the wind. Bonus - no "swishing" sound when I walk! Would wear to work and on walks. So versatile and warm.
