Like a suit of armor, but much lighter.

Extremely wide from the hips down
Really was hoping these would work for hiking and walking in inclement weather. The waist fit perfectly, but like another review pointed out the hips and legs were huge, not just big. Definitely not a good design for what I had planned on using them for. It's a shame because had they been more fitted in the hips and legs they would have been what I was looking for.
Fit works for fuller hips
First, this is a well-constructed pant as far as I can tell. The zipper system works well and the material seems to move well with my body. But the fit is one that will not work for all. The waist is true to size, but the hips and upper thigh are large. I'm 5'9" and 130 lbs with a 27" waist and 37" hips and they're quite big around the hips and thighs. All that extra material made me return these and instead go with the Arcteryx Gamma MX pant - which is designed more for my body type. Also, I could have used another inch in length on the Adaro (I ordered a small regular), had the long inseam version been in stock.
