I got the tan or khaki color pants for my son, he just turned 9 over the summer and needed these for school. they are the pull on type which is easy for him to put on. the waist does not have the adjustable waist on the inside of the pant, but there are drawstring like pulls on the outside in the front, and you can pull them to make the waist tighter and you could tie them to keep them smaller. they have the appearance of a zipper but there is no zipper. there are 2 working front pockets and one working pocket on the back. the measurements of the pants as i'm laying them flat are, waist is 11 inches wide, inseam is 9 inches, and length from waist to ankle is about 32.5 inches long. they are 97% cotton, and 3% spandex. care instructions are tumble dry low, remove promptly, iron if needed. I just washed them like I do all my kids clothes and they seem fine. they seem to have good quality stitching and seem like they will last the school year, could not be more happy.
