Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large

These are the greatest thing in my wardrobe; I now own three black pairs, plus grey and red, because I wear them almost daily. I don't use them as a technical baselayer, though I'm sure they'd be great for that. I wear them as tights with dresses and boots. I go to grad school full time, I have two little kids, and I live in the northeast where it's cold -- these things are a time-saving wardrobe lifesaver. They do run large; I have a 33" waist and the larges gape at the waist for me. Also, I'm 5'8" and I have to fold up the cuff a good 3"; they're nice and long. They are soft, they keep their shape after (many) consecutive days of wear, and they are warm enough outdoors without being too hot indoors. They wash and hang dry beautifully and don't run or tear. I only wish they came in more colors.

Okay, so I own two pairs of these, plus a cashmoore sweatshirt. Yes, they are essentially overpriced sweatpants, but they are SO worth it. The straight leg and drawstring give a great loungy fit, and the back zip pocket is great to stash your keys in case you want to wear these over your shorts to the gym. As a previous reviewer mentioned, they do change texture a bit in the wash, but I found them to be just as snuggly and still very fleecy. I'm cold all the time, so I wore these even in the summer, and my husband who is never cold, even loved the fabric so much that he asked for a pair. Winner!

If you've never felt Ibex's Izzi fabric before, it's a unique animal. The Izzi pants are the exact same stuff - it's kind of a thick, almost terrycloth type experience, cozy without being cuddly. It's not something you'd pick up and start thinking about puppies, but it's still warm and very comfortable. Very stretchy, too. I'm 5'8", 173 lbs, a curvy size 12, and got a large. Fits fine. One star down for how it came out of the wash, though. I washed it in cold water, no dryer, and it came out with weird creases and wrinkles, with fuzzies from other clothes stuck in every wrinkle. So I guess it's getting washed on its own from now on...good thing it's wool and won't need washing every time.

This is a nice wrap. When I first took it out of the package, I thought, "no way." (Not in a good way.) The fabric is basically a stretchy, sturdy t-shirt material, not quite what I expected, and the front is super long, goes down to mid-shin (I'm 5'7"). I get it caught in the door of my truck every single time I get in. That being said, after wearing it a few times now, it's super soft and comfy, a nice weight for a cool summer morning. Good for jazzing up a pre- or post-workout outfit. It does stretch but seems true to size. Machine washable, which is a plus!

This shirt is fantastic. It is exactly what I wanted it to be - slouchy, lightweight, not itchy at all, just about hip length. You do have to wear it with a tank underneath, since the neck is wide and tends to slip off the shoulders. It runs very large, so if you want it to be more formfitting I'd say size down at least one size. Perfect for summer travel!
