When shopping for the correct size, use the Actual Hip Measurement chart instead of the waist chart. I went with the waste chart and the pants that came were way too wide and too long. They seemed good, but buying the wrong size was way too easy. Hopefully this will help future shoppers.

I bought two pairs of these pants, and love them. The material isn't too heavy, nor is it too light, it's just right. It is summer in Florida as I write this. I am wearing them and I am not too warm. The straight legs don't ride up, and the pockets are nice. The price is nice too.

I've bought these pants for somewhere around 5 years now for lounging around the house. They used to be pretty well-made. Comfortable and long-lasting. Some time in the last year they must have switched their manufacturing method, because they've become cheap trash. The last two times I've ordered them, they no longer came with the mesh pockets and the stitching around the waist and crotch starts falling apart after a single wash, no exaggeration. I'd recommend another brand, as Fruit of the Loom seems to have forgotten how to make clothing.

In wealthy and well-to-do circles, Fruit of the Loom garments are looked down upon. However, those of us who live or have risen from the lower and middle classes see Fruit of the Loom clothing as a godsend. Fruit of the Loom clothing is comfortable, fairly durable, comes in a variety of sizes and colors, and is inexpensive. These men's sweatpants are just one example of that. I own several pairs of these Fruit of the Loom sweatpants: one in purple, one in grey, one in red, and a couple in navy blue. They are quite comfortable and I enjoy wearing them when I don't have to go anywhere. I have worn them as casual pants on weekends, as pajama bottoms, and when I go jogging in winter and fall. They also last a long time; I have owned one pair of these sweatpants for almost six years and they are still in good shape. Overall, an excellent pair of casual sweatpants that can be worn for a variety of occasions and are inexpensive.

These sweats are comfortable and the mesh pockets are nice but they are completely falling apart. From the first time I wore them, I left a trail of the inner lining all around my house. After the very first wash, I have a 1" hole in the crotch area. I did use these while exercising so it is possible they might have torn while squating etc. I am throwing these away and switching back to my Champion brand sweats. The quality/durability of these is far less than what I am used to.

I love them. They don't get all linty after the washing and drying, which is good. They're light and warm. If you're expecting the really thick sweatpants, go elsewhere. I'm totally satisfied with these. :-) (bought two) The black sweatpants are a little tighter compared to the blue ones.

One year ago, I purchased a set of Champion athletic clothing knowing that the trademark was representing mid to high quality line of products. Having received the set, I was strongly dissatisfied with the quality and the cut of the Champion set, giving approval rating of ONE STAR. This time, I tried another brand, Fruit of the Loom, representing lower to mid quality range of clothing products. Checking out of this set, I can say that they are much better than expected from this manufacturer.
Specificaly, the pants BOTH SIZE MEDIUM, the Champion legs longer, has rubber ties on the bottoms, BOTH ARE PRETTY RUGH, no pockets, NOT EVEN ONE, the waist line is a common string. Comparably, the Fruit of the Loom has TAILORED LEGS
DOUBLE STICHED, TWO POCKETS, the waist line has a RUBBERIZED STRING. I paid 65% of funds for the Fruit of the Loom pants compared to the Champion pants, TAKE YOUR CHOICE!!!!

I bought two pairs of these and within the first day of wearing each of them...the drawstring came unfastened from the back. The drawstring does not go all the way through, it is actually two pieces of cord sewn to the back of the pant. When tied, and the first time I tried to sit...the string came unsewn. Don't even bother with these. I gave it one star because there is nothing lower.

Overall theses seem like good pants. Comfortable, and heavy duty material.
My only complaint is the sizing. I ordered a small and a large. The small for my daughter and large for me, both to use as emergency clothing to keep in the car, etc. Well the large fits me fine, but the small is way to long. I compared it to the large and the small is actually 1/2 longer!
I have seen this more and more when shopping for pants, so I don't know if this is a QA problem or a standard practice. I am not going to return them, but it is quite annoying to have to hem pants all the time.

After just one wash, the waist band stitching came loose and created a run of the thread on the entire circumference. I threw it away and to me, I'll never buy it again.
