These pants looked really comfortable and I was hesitant to get them because of all the complaints about them shrinking. After two weeks of deliberation I got them last year for winter. They are super comfortable. I wash them in cold water and tumble dry it and so far, they have not shrunk. I have an issue with pant legs being too short and I was afraid they may shrink so I got an x-large. I'm glad I got the x-large because I like how loose it fits and the length is good, a little longer than expected but I like it. I took off one star because it is not as flattering as the models picture and even though I prefer draw strings over elastic, I hate the way it looks in these pants (minor complaint). I wear it as a low rise pants.
I live where the weather does not get too cold during winter. This is a medium weight fabric so I think it does well in 60ish or 70ish degree weather but it is not meant for super cold weather unless you love the cold or can tolerate very cold...
I like the wide leg look of these pants and the material. However, the reason I'm giving it a crappy rating is because these pants only stay on you only due to the tie string at the waist. Usually if there's a tie on pants, it's mostly for style and slight adjustment, but not to keep your pants on you. Seriously Bella, what the hell? There is absolutely no type of stretch here where they would stay on, on their own so if your pants get untied they'll drop to the floor lol Also due to same reason not very comfortable fit around hip/ stomach area and don't stay put. I wear them but they are kinda a pain in the butt with all the riding up and/or dropping down and having to retir them every few hours.
I bought these ones before and didn't realize it was the same kind. They are just O.K. Not my favorite pair in the world. I wish I would have noticed because these are the ones without a waist band, it's only a tie. So the tie gets knotted into place really HARD eventually and they either get too big and stretchy falling down or if you are able to get them untied, the rope tie gets separated from the pants during wash, then you have to try and re-string it back through the waist of the pants and that is very hard to do without the tools to do it. Long-winded I know but that's how I feel about these. The older ones I have are still lasting, they are wearing a little thin after 3 years and seem to be the sweatpants that just won't go away. As far as off-gassing for my chemical sensitivities. So far, hung out a week, washed 4 times and still can't wear them. Not a strong chemical smell but just a hint of menthol and rubbery smell that won't go away. It will be a while until I wear...
