I love these pants and had a lot of trouble finding them. I am a woman but buy men's sweatpants because they have pockets! I need pockets. I wear them around the house cleaning, cooking, etc. and need a pocket to hold my MP3. Listening to books makes chores more pleasant. The banded bottoms are ideal because they don't need to be shortened but yet don't trip you up. I've bought 3 colors and may buy more. I am 5' 4" and weigh 140 pounds. The medium men's fit me well. A bit loose but I wanted comfort and ease of movement. I am a senior and really don't wear skinny pants. Very inexpensive and they washed well although I've only washed them once so far.
