Okay, so I own two pairs of these, plus a cashmoore sweatshirt. Yes, they are essentially overpriced sweatpants, but they are SO worth it. The straight leg and drawstring give a great loungy fit, and the back zip pocket is great to stash your keys in case you want to wear these over your shorts to the gym. As a previous reviewer mentioned, they do change texture a bit in the wash, but I found them to be just as snuggly and still very fleecy. I'm cold all the time, so I wore these even in the summer, and my husband who is never cold, even loved the fabric so much that he asked for a pair. Winner!
