These pants are very comfortable and sit nicely around the waist. they are high enough to cover your lower back but not so high that they cut into your front when riding. I returned another pair of pants to exchange for these- the other was more flattering but not comfortable and did not fit right. I am 5'4", 125lbs, and the medium fits a bit loosely, but is snug enough when I adjust the waistband. The shins are more loose than I would like, but would fit well over boots. It is very breathable for summer riding when the insulation layer is removed and vents are open. I feel comfortable and protected in these and would rather that over tight, stiff pants.
