They fit true to size if you follow the sizing chart. I got the regular length and they were a perfect fit. The fabric is nice and light but seems durable for all that you could throw at it. My only problem is really a picky one, the single button on the pockets mean that the flaps will fold over and get creased. I'm just being picky though really, because I'll be ordering another pair soon!
