This legging rocks! I have two other brands but the fit and elasticity staying power far exceeds the two other popular brands. And the high waist stays put! I wear daily and put on a down skirt when going into town. I highly recommend if you like leggings and want more warmth.

Super comfortable, but started pilling on the first wear. I'm not sure what the problem is but hopefully they address it since I'd otherwise buy again!

I purchased these to use as a baselayer for cold-weather camping, but they were so warm I was able to wear them by themselves the next morning. They are soft and super comfortable, and definitely allow for a lot of movement. The fit is great - form-fitting but not too tight, and not binding at the top (despite them being higher waisted). I didn't have any issues with pilling just from wear the first day or initial washing like some others have had.

Purchased these to have for my early morning power walks, thought I needed something as it's starting to get colder. Fit close to body but not binding. Warm but very light weight feeling - which is strange. High waist, again not binding. So comfortable, I can see me wearing these around the house lounging in them as well - bought in two colors, wish I could get my size in the other color too!!! I can also see using these as a bae layer under my ski pants too - so versatile and on sale, bargain!!

Wasn't sure what to expect with these. The inside has a little drawstring, which is nice, but they're not super high waisted. Love that the side pockets are also fleece -lined. I haven't tried them out yet, but I'm nervous they'll slide down as I walk/run.

These were highly recommended by a "hiker blogger" on Pinterest; and the Backcountry reviews seemed like they were the right fleece lined pants for me. The day I got them in they didn't feel like quality fabric or insulated enough for a good base layer, but they fit perfect and were comfortable so I took them for a 2 hour hike the next day. I've never had a problem with pilling on any of my leggings or tights, but these pilled automatically- which was so disappointing! They look to shoddy to wear alone anymore due to the pilling all over the pants, but I don't want to pay the shipping cost so I'll keep them as "household cleaning" lounge pants. Wouldn't recommend at all. I'm 123lbs and 5'7".

I bought these pants with the intent of using them for XC skiing and other winter adventures, but when quarantine hit, they became my go-to pant for work-from-home and just lounging around in the house. These came highly recommended from Gearhead, Kayla. She was very right. They are very comfortable yet not skin tight like typical leggings, but not as loose as a jogger. I wore them for a full week of (car) camping in Mammoth when it got cold at night and the full fleece lining kept me nice and warm. After two months, I am starting to notice some pilling, as other reviewers have mentioned, but that won't stop me from wearing them.

I absolutely loved these legging when I got them. The fit was great, the color, the pockets the fleece...I was so excited. I have worn them TWICE and now they look terrible. The pilled where my legs rub, where I sat in the car, where my jacket touched...they look too terrible to wear any more. Not worth the money for sure.

I bought these tights less than 2-months ago. They fit great, kept me warm and were very comfy. They quickly became my favorite go tights. But after washing them only 2-3 times the fabric started to pull. By now, not even two months since I bought them, the fabric has pilled and faded, and they look terrible. Sadly, I would not recommend these at all, they won’t last.

These pants are warm - yet flexible and easy to move in. Not to mention they're quite flattering - high waist, yet no foopa.

I was really excited when I got these in the mail and tried them on. They're awesome! Warm, comfortable and they fit well. I like the high rise and the pockets, and the inside drawstring lets you fit the waist just how you want. Fit was true to size for me. Can't wait to wear them more!

I did not know how much I was going to love these leggings. They're fleece-backed, warm, soft and comfy, and they look and fit very well. They're a little on the looser side than some leggings, more like pants in a way, esp with the adjustable waist. And naturally, I love the pockets. The dress blues shade is gorgeous. Might grab another pair in a dif color.

Great fit, comfortable, warm. Bought 2 pair (blue, green) for my wife. They fit her perfectly. Perfect for predawn walks/hikes with our husky. Camping and backpacking this spring. “Warm, comfortable” (her) and “flattering” (me). She loves them.

I have another pair of these leggings from last year which I like, but I bought another pair because I found they go perfectly under shell ski pants and wanted 2 so I don’t have to wear dirty leggings on a long weekend of skiing. I’m sooooo stoked by the changes they made, primarily to the rise. These are now solidly high rise, hitting just under my belly button. So much more comfortable than last years model. Buying another pair immediately. Love.

I was looking for a more heavyweight thermal type legging for walking outdoors in NE Ohio. I would definitely need to use these as a base layer only in any temps under 40 degrees. They were not warm enough, even with the fleece inner lining. They are thinner than what I expected and the wind penetrated right through. They also bag out quickly. Sent them back.

I live in the backcountry am active in the winter. I bought these hoping they would be warm, but one step lighter than my wool leggings. They are super comfortable, look great and have great temp control. I've xcountry skied, run, ect. in them and love them for all that. However, I've only washed them three times and they are already pilling in the "high use" areas like knees. I even let them hang dry. It's a bummer because it makes them look unprofessional. For the price, I would have expected a higher quality fabric that won't pill.

The wife says her always cold backside is warm and cozy in these! She has owned Stoic fleece lined tights and they were her favorite but I think they've been replaced, these are great for home, hikes, walks, under snowboard clothes, apres ski, the list goes on. Hard to shake up an all black design but these are good looking leggings, like the drawstring closure. Normall wears small but ordered a Medium for length, perfect fit but need to use drawstring to keep them up.

More important than anything: These are sooo comfy! They feel just like wearing sweatpants, but are way more flattering. Pocket is convenient, and they are very warm. I've worn them around on their own and they've been great. It's been unseasonably warm, so I haven't gotten to test them in anything under 30 degrees yet. I did wear them on their own at night in 34 degrees and they were almost too hot, which is great, because I have tons of tights that are good in the 30s, but freeze my butt off the second it hits 29. I'm hoping these will do the trick. I found these to be pretty true to size, maybe a little tight in the calf, but they loosened up as I wore them. I almost always wear a medium or a 6 in pants. I'm short but not petite -- small-framed with a big booty, thick thighs, and big calves, so I tend to wear compression pants just because they don't bag in my knees or belly if they fit my booty. These are a great -- they're actually form-fitting and flattering on me without squeezing my guts up into my brain. I really appreciate the drawstring! And why there are still tights out there that don't have pockets is beyond me. Pockets are life. Will definitely be getting more of these when I can afford to.

I just received these today, so I have not had the chance to wear them, but I am very pleased so far. They feel very cozy...just what I wanted: a warmer legging than my usual yoga leggings. I'm 5'4" 110 lbs and ordered a small (my usual size). It's close to being true to size, maybe just a tad on the small side, but they work for me. The waist was large, but since there's a drawstring, that is not an issue. I recommend this product.

How do these differ from the Sundial Leggings (https://www.backcountry.com/backcountry-snapdragon-tight-womens-bcc00bn)? Are these just the 2020 version? Would the fit be the same between the two?
