Women's Solid Relaxed Performance Pants
These are well made with high quality material, however, the legs are very wide. The picture is not representative of the product.

Just like described
Very comfortable. True to size. I was a bit dubious about getting grey but it really is a very nice color. I would recommend these. They are great for exercising, relaxing around the house, shopping, anything.

Tall women can be plus size, too
I'm 6 feet tall and not thin. It is extremely difficult to find pants that fit my length as well as my girth. Usually, I just deal with it and don't whine, but in this case, the plus-size pants are actually SHORTER than the regular-size! I ordered talls in the largest size possible, in hopes that the "relaxed" version would be OK, but alas. They're going back.

Bring Back the Previous Design
I wanted another pair of Relaxed Performance Pants that I got a few years ago. I loved it and after countless washes, it still looked good. So I tried on this new design and did not find it a fair replacement. The sizing ran a little small and it was like every other yoga/active pants at every other store. The previous design had a drawstring cord, pocket, and a more relaxed fit through the hips and upper thigh. I could wear them to school as casual pants or to the gym. It was a really easy pants to like. I hope they bring back the old design.

I'm not sure what they were thinking when they designed these.
These pants are kind of an oddity, but I ended up liking them. As some reviewers have commented, the legs are MUCH wider than they appear in the pictures, making them less than ideal for working out. At least one reviewer mentioned wearing them as slacks on vacation, and I thought, really? Workout pants? I wouldn't do that ... or so I thought.
I ordered them in the regular length and they hit around the ankle, as in the photos, which I found unflattering (I'm 5'8"). I considered returning them, since they weren't suitable for working out, but I really liked the fabric, so I decided to reorder in a tall. To my surprise, with the wide leg and longer length, they make quite acceptable, slightly dressy-looking pants. They do have flat seams like workout pants, but that didn't detract from the appearance. And, of course, I would only wear them with a top long enough to cover the waistband.
I just returned from a vacation where I wore them for long days of riding in the car - they were extremely comfortable and still looked good enough to wear out to dinner. Who knew?!

Loved fabric but too wide at bottom
I was looking for a pair of active pants that weren't too thin or tight. I am a size 12 or 14 with some curves and don't like my clothes to fit tight. I really liked the fabric but the legs were ridiculously wide at the bottom. I ended up returning them and found a pair at the outlet store that fit better.

Loved these pants in the past. Boot cut bottoms are way too big!
I have two pair of these pants and have loved them. They are great for traveling. I ordered a new pair and was VERY disappointed with the wide boot cut bottom! The fit is wonderful, the new boot cut bottom looks ridiculous! I am sad because these pants were so versatile.

I have purchased three pair of these pants over the last few years. I wear them three to four times a week when I walk. They are perfect. I think they run a bit small. I usually wear a medium in LE pants but wear these in a large. They are comfortable and easy to take care of. I wash in cold water and hang to dry. Even with all the use they get, they still look almost new. I haven't needed to replace any; I only ordered more so I have extra if I fall behind in laundry.

XL Fits Hourglass Gal Like a Glove
I can't say enough good things about this active pant. It takes me from the gym to errands around town and back to the house in comfortable style. I especially want to recommend this pant to any gals who have generously proportioned derrieres and/or thighs, the wide leg of this pant has such a slimming effect that my friends tell me I look like I've lost weight. I wish! But back to the pants, they're sporty but not sloppy. The fabric is soft and medium-weight and does not show every lump and bump . I wear them with my light duty active shoes or sporty flats, and have paired them with t-shirts, puffy vests, and nicely cut denim jackets and the outfits look terrific. I started with the gray pair and sent for the black within the week. If there were more colors available, I would buy those too!

These are a perfect fit for my body shape and type.
I am so glad you have come out with this style of pant. The wide leg is perfect for someone with heavier legs. I am not able to wear the other pants - no matter what type of cut - but these are perfect. You can dress up or down with the change of a top or shoes.
I'm looking forward to perhaps seeing a wide legged pant in a dressier fabric.
