I got the orange one, and I love the color. Fabric is soft, as usual, and great quality. One thing I didn't like is that the top is constructed from two different kinds of fabric - the regular weave of Smartwool that we all know and love, and a ribbed wool for some of the panels (see the two-tone for an idea). It gave my shirt a kind of sloppy look, as the ribbed fabric has more stretch than the rest. Also, the side neck zipper is fine if I keep it zipped all the way up, but it's too awkward to adjust easily, and sticks at the neck seam. I bought it on sale, and will keep it in my office as a spare; but I will stick to the crew-neck front zipper version in the future.

I love the look of these pants and I wear them all the time as my jeans substitute. They are sturdy, and have a neat look, interesting seams, and plenty of pockets. Unfortunately, the pockets you would most likely use (front pockets) have these cool zippers on them that kind of hurt your hands when you are geting in there! They are described as "stretch," but I wouldn't characterize them as having any stretch at all, so what you have is what you get when trying on. Last, the waist is big compared to the seat, so I find I am hoisting them up at regular intervals. I still like how they look and how they hold up to wear and laundering, but I won't be getting another pair of them.

I am about 5'7", 130 lbs, and very curvy (meaning wide behind, narrowish waist). I had a hard time finding cycling bottoms that don't pull down and expose all in the back. I have lycra and wool tights that work great for long rides, but I needed pants that I can walk around in when I get to destinations around town. These are the ones! They are form fitting but not tight; thin enough to wear in hot weather; roomy enough for a base layer if called for; and they just look like pants.
