I use these for yoga & climbing. They are not restrictive at all and breathe very well. Ideal for warm yoga studios when wearing my pants is too uncomfortable. I hand washed them the first time, and they were very quick to dry. I look forward to backpacking and swimming in them this summer as well!
I am 32" waist & 166lbs, bought a large and they fit well...so as others have said, they run a little small. A medium would have fit, but the elastic waste band would have been stretched a little too much.
