Love these leggings. The weight is substantial enough for chilly weather but they don't get too hot. The texture is really nice. They are comfortable for hiking and travel, and really cute with a tunic or big sweater and a pair of short boots. Regarding fit, I'm 5'7 and 180 lbs and the XL fits great. I'd normally never spend this much for a pair of leggings, but they are totally worth the sale price so I'm back for more.
