The description of these pants is different than what the pant actually offers. There is only ONE pocket total (the pocket with the red zipper on right rear) and the waist is NOT adjustable. Decent fit, although based on the measurements I am a size 4 (27" waist, 38" hip). I found the waist to be a little tight, while the hip, leg, and overall length were perfect. Also found these to make a rather loud "swishing" sound when I walked, and my legs felt hot just trying them on. I ended up going with the Columbia Mumbai Mover pant in an 8 x 32 which DOES have 2 front zipper pockets plus 2 regular back patch pockets, plus belt loops if I ever want to wear a belt, and made less of a "swishing" sound.

If you're borderline on the sizes, when in doubt, order up! I got both the small and medium and went with the medium. The inside is fleecy and soft, and the outside is smooth. The waistband is also fleecy and is nonrestrictive and does not cause muffin top, something I was very pleased with! Wore these for 3 days in Breckenridge, CO, skiing and kept toasty warm with Smartwool knee high ski socks. Smooth outside layer was great for not catching on my ski pants and did not restrict movement. Didn't need any other baselayer bottoms.. these were perfect for low-mid 30s plus insulated ski pants. I love them!

Purchased these as well as the Deluxe Thermax Glove Liner, and ended up keeping this pair! Silk liner is very soft and almost unnoticeable under winter gloves. Also felt like the seams on the silk liner were not as bulky as the Thermax liner. These definitely keep my fingers toastier than without a liner.

This skirt is GREAT. Basically lived in it in Florida for a week, it was ultra-comfy and stylish with either flip flops or cute ballet flats. The Pinot color is a deep purple that I think looks good with just about any color of top. I wear this on my hips as well, in a small (I'm a 4-6 in skirts). Like another reviewer, I don't need the drawstring as the waistband elasticity is sufficient. Hits just above the kneecap for me, and I found the material to be super soft and not see through at all despite the 190 weave. Buy one! :-)

I also have the matching long-sleeve Nature Lite, and both get a lot of wear. I don't wear the cami by itself, but it's a great baselayer under a T-shirt. Definitely helps with wicking sweat in warmer climates, and providing a little extra warmth for the colder ones. I've worn it for 4 days before and it still doesn't show signs of needing to be washed! I haven't yet, but will probably wear this cami to sleep in as well. I bought a small (size 6 in tops normally) and it is fitted yet not quite as tight at the BodyFit line.

I did not have the same hose freezing incident as another reviewer stated. I skied in NY this past weekend with -25F windchill for 6 hours straight and the hydration tube did not freeze. I maybe drank from it 3 times during the day and had no issues whatsoever. Also fit very well around my 5'7" frame with a ski jacket, especially with the strap that wraps around your waist to secure the pack. it didn't hinder any movement going down the slopes, either. I highly recommend!
