Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size

The first time I wore them, the hem of one pant leg pulled completely out. I think it may have snagged on the velcro of my climbing shoe, but the other leg doesn't look like it's likely to stay put either. Now I have to go fix it before I can wear them again. I expect a little more for $30. Otherwise, they are comfy.

The one thing you can't tell from the video below, is that you can't cover the screen on the doors all the way. The flap that covers the screen comes up to about 2 inches below the top. I think this is a little weird, but it does seem adequate to give you privacy. Since the awning hangs down a little, someone would have to stick their head under to really see in.
Since the vestibules are at the short ends, they are much smaller than I'm used to. I also have to pass my shoes through the tent to get them to the vestibule, but it works.
I was looking for a tent that would allow better cross-ventilation and still protect from the rain, and it works well for that. It rained the first time I used it, and I stayed dry.
Set-up is a little different, too, with the 3 main poles already connected. And you can't simply stuff it in the sack because of the integrated awning poles, but they are short, so it's not much of a hassle. Overall, it seems like a great tent so far!

I bought the light blue ones for my boyfriend and he has been wearing them almost all the time for weeks 'cause they're so comfy. We've gotten a lot of comments about them looking like scrub pants, but we like the color. They aren't as bright as I thought the image looked. He also uses them for climbing, and says they are more durable, but less stretchy than his other climbing pants. He agrees that the waist doesn't stretch a whole lot, but it's not a problem for him - better than too loose and falling off.

I don't have narrow feet, but there is not enough velcro to tighten the front straps down. It doesn't seem like most people have this problem, so maybe it's only in the smaller sizes? I could probably have gone down a half size, but I don't see a 5.5. I have also bought the kids sizes, but they don't have as much cushion, so I won't buy them again. If I add some velcro, these will probably work well for me, though.

So far I'm very happy with these. They are a little thicker than some leggings and provide a little bit of support. I'm also more likely to wear these without shorts or a tunic than most leggings. They seem to work well for aerial silks, too.

So far, I think they will be perfect for what I bought them for - to keep me warm under my dry suit in January. I got the medium, my usual size, and I can fit 2 more layers underneath. They aren't really too big by themselves, but they do look a little bulky in the front. It's probably because they are thick material plus pockets; they ARE warm. And the rear view is nice.
