Really expected these pants to be too tight, too low, and a return. To my surprise they are PERFECT! When they arrived I knew they were going to be too close fitting, wrong! They fit like a dream. I can do a full squat and stretch completely without any tugging or pulling (especially in the knees or butt area). The belt is a nice touch too and is really easy to adjust and open/close. They are very well fitted and not baggy, like my ex officio bugsaway pants are. The rise is about mid-rise, not high rise like the bugsaway pants. I've tried on so many convertible pants trying to find the right one, these are it! I just bought another pair in case they are discontinued any time in the near future!
