Women's HiddenFleece Cargo Pants
It's hard to recommend these, since I have not actually worn them yet. Others complained about pilling, even after the first wash. I have washed them, and there are no pills as yet. I like the feel of the material. However, they do run small. I bought them to wear under a waterproof shell, so I am glad they aren't too large. But no one will ever see me in these unless I'm wearing a long tunic.

Great insulating pant. Not windproof.
I bought these pants for our Yellowstone trip and used it for hiking in windy, rainy and cold weather (as low as 30 degrees) and I found them to be as comfortable as sweatpants but warmer yet not windproof. I was insulated enough to not feel the cold. The pockets could be redesigned to be less bulky when my wallet and cellphone are stored in the pockets as these are form fitting pants. A drawstring may be useful as well. I found that when I did store those items in my pockets, I find myself pulling my pants up every so often from the weight. As with other reviewers complaints with pilling, I have not found that to be a problem yet. I went hiking a few times with the pants and washed the pants inside out in a laundry bag (as suggested by another reviewer) and the pants still look new. I am 5'9" 140 lbs a and bought a medium size and they fit perfectly.

Not at all wind-resistant
They look great, thought they would be wind resistant, very disappointed. My jeans have much more wind resistance than these pants, so even though they're "fleecy" they have no actual warmth unless you're in the house! Kinda silly, really.

Great Travel Pants
I almost changed my mind about ordering these pants due to the reviews I read on-line. I am so glad I ordered them anyway. The fit was true. I am a medium and they fit perfectly. I read complaints about piling. I washed these pants several times now. No piling. I wash all my sports clothing inside-out on gentle cycle in cold water. I wore these to travel to Minnesota this winter. They are comfortable on the airplane and made my travel easy by having pockets I could easily leave my ID and boarding pass and energy bar in. Once in MN, they were plenty warm; it was 10 degrees, but I did not over-heat indoors. Love these pants! I am also able to hike and do yoga in them. I would order another pair.

Excessive pilling and a lint trap
I saw these pants in a catalog that came in the mail and asked for a pair for Christmas. The first time I wore them I fell in love with them. Cozy would be a good description. Then I washed them, as per the directions, and they pill worse than anything I've ever had. They worked better at snagging stray lint and hair than the lint filter in my dryer! I'm so disappointed because they went from my favorite pair of pants to my worst pair of pants overnight. I almost purchased a second pair until I washed them. Please take these reviews seriously and don't buy them. They are definitely NOT worth the money spent. :(

loved the pants at first.
I loved these pants at first. They looked good but the more I wash them ,per instructions, the more they pill. For the amt. of money I paid for these they should perform much better. Very disappointed in these pants. Don't spend the money, they are unwearable now, in public, and I may have had them for maybe two months.

Pilling is a serious issue
I asked for and received these pants as a Christmas gift. I should have read the reviews first as within two wearings they began to pill. The inner thighs are pilling excessively and not two weeks later and one gentle washing they are looking nasty. I am pretty upset about this.
On the plus side they are cozy and warm and I guess I can use them for after ski or playing in the snow.
Some sort of compensation should be issued on this product as they really aren't very attractive after just two wearings and BEFORE a wash.

This product is comfortable and very useful.
I love wearing these pants. They are comfortable and warm and look good on me. I will be wearing these pants alot. I really like the zipper pockets- they are easily accessed and comfortable, also. I intend to buy more of these pants.
