I've been looking for a pair of track pants with pockets, so i was happy to see these. I purchased a 2x originally and had to return and order a 1x, they fit quite big. I love the material of them and the pockets are a great size, nice and deep. However, i am a bit disappointed with a couple aspects. I was happy to see a high elastic waist band. I thought i could put them and not worry about tying them, but it's not the case. Although the elastic is a high one, it's not nearly tight enough and if you don't tie them up they slide down. I do love the ties though, they are like a big shoe lace. The pants themselves are generous from the waist to the knee, then they almost become like a skinny pants, and with the cuff at the bottom it almost looks like a balloon, not really an attractive look on me, but i'm only 5 feet tall. I've worn them 4 or 5 times now and the elastic in the waist has already folded under inside and can't be fixed unless you actually cut open the waist to straighten it back up. Personally i would have preferred to see a smaller elastic waist, but with a tighter elastic. That would maybe keep it from rolling down. Originally i was so happy to see these that i had both colors in my cart, but changed me mind and decided to try one first before i bought a pair in each color. I am undecided if i'll buy another pair. they are going for just hanging around. I'll leave it everyone to decide for themselves. The may very well fit differently on different body shapes!
