These are not cheap but i think they are so worth the money. I have tried several brands over the years and whilst i have many good alternatives these really are my favourites and i have topped up my supply this year by buying these again :). I really like how you do not have seam patterns across your knees and legs so i have worn these for both winter pursuits as well as apres ski with a snug pair of winter boots and they always look and feel really good. I have worn these when in the mountains of Kranjska Gora ( Slovenia ) in the winter for cross country skiing, hiking, mushing with huskies, sledding, ice skating and more and i found these perfect for all pursuits !. Length wise i found they came to my ankle perfectly - i am 5'8 1/2 to be precise :) and they have super comfortable hems and waistband as it is abit wider so it doesn't nip in uncomfortably. They feel really nice next to the skin with no chafing seams and kept me comfortable whatever my activity as they are very breathable. Even when worn as leggings with winter boots for apres ski they kept subzero blasts at bay and i always felt comfortable and not at all hot or sweaty. Size wise if it helps i have a 26" waist and 36" hips with muscular legs and usually need size 10 or 10/12 in trousers and the size 10/small fits me perfectly. These also wash and wear really well and are a winter staple for me :D.
