I love the way these pants look. They are form fitting and have a little flare at the bottom which looks really cute on the mountain. I am about 5'8 and wear a size 8 long in pants. I have TNF freedom non insulated, non bootcut pants from last year in a medium and they fit me perfectly. I ordered the bootcut in medium and they are tad snug. The large was a bit too big so I kept the medium, but I think they run a little smaller the other TNF products. Just my opinion - I have read the other reviews and no one else seems to have this issue. Maybe I am just a bit curvier then the other reviewers. I do feel they are waterproof and comfortable. Even with the snug fit they are very comfy on the mountain skiing.
