I used these to ski (I'm a beginner) and they were kind enough to cushion my bottom as well as be warm and waterproof. The fit was comfortable but I did use a belt. I am a size 8-10 and bought a medium. As I was spring skiing (temps 32-50), I didn't even use a baselayer under them and was fine (even after quite a few falls on the slopes).
I'm a 5'7" size 8 woman and purchased these in Medium. The good- the construction is excellent. Exterior is typical for downhill but isn't horribly stiff. I really like the color and pattern (wasn't sure). The color in person is a nice cream with kind of grayish-taupe and gold in the plaid ( I wear with a persimmon colored solid jacket. Looks great). They are not garish at all, more muted. I am actually quite surprised at how much I like the pattern since my choice of ski pants is : Black, black and dark black. These pants are insulated with fleece which is soft as can be. I've worn these twice, thankfully in warmer East Coast conditions and they kept me warm but not toasty. I didn't need an under layer here. HOWEVER, I will not be taking these out West with me- two reasons. 1) fit is snug. Fine for a younger lady who doesn't have child-bearing hips or thighs. These leave me no wiggle room in the thigh and therefore no room for an under layer. Also, they sit below the waist far enough that you'd better have you a belt or a really thick waist or you're one click away from youtube's "best of plumber crack" videos. They DO have a velcro adjustable feature, but it's not as great as my North Face tabs. These are shorter, and I have a slender waist (I'm more hourglass built) so I wish I could tighten them further. If you go for it, invest in a good web belt.
All that said, they are good enough to keep, but not as my main pair. The price IS excellent for these. Even out of season the matching coat (if you can find it!) is still well over $250.

The size small has a 30" inseam. You get about .25"-.50" difference per size.
