The pants are about the same weight as a light sweat pants weight. Inside they feel a little like fleece. The waistband is elastic, however the draw strings are only sewed on the front for decoration and do not really cinch up the waist further. They do fit nicely with the elastic.
My son is a tall and skinny 7 year old so I usually buy pants that are adjustable or have elastic waists. I bought these thinking that the waist would be stretchy but did not check first. :( The waist band is not elastic and is very wide. I had to roll out down twice to get it to even sit somewhat on his hips. The pull strings are sewn in place so they don't help either. They also have a very wide pant leg that looks funny on him since he's so skinny. The material is well made i just don't like the design or the fit of these pants. Would not recommend these for skinny children but they would probably be fine for an average or even husky size. My son does not like the pants at all and refuses to wear them so they were a waste of money for me! :(
They fit really good on my grandson. They are easy for him to put on
Great pair of sweat pants for my 4 year old they keep up with his active life and wash very good without fading. The price was great for having to buy New pants every few months for my growing boy.
My son really likes how comfortable these pants are. My only complaint is I wish they were a little longer. His legs are long and after washing them the lenth shrunk a little bit. Still great pants though!
The quality of the pants were average although the look and style were lacking. I was sent the wrong size so they were returned instead of worn.
