First of all i got this on sale and even after i read reviews about the poor fit.
I am 5 feet 11 inches, 160 pounds. I bought size "S". I should have gotten size "M" instead.
The tights fit my legs fine and they are comfortable. All except that the rise and the level of the waist was not high enough. Your butt crack would be exposed if you did any bending over.
Since i just use this to sleep with when I'm in the backcountry and using my sleeping bag, this is fine.
Got to use it during my 2 week trip in Nepal, where 10 days were spent trekking and sleeping in tea-houses.
It felt comfortable.
I wore this for about 7 nights, and it did not hold any odors.
Odd fit and not that comfortable.

I really wanted to like these tights; compared to some of the other options in the "heavyweight long undies" column, these are not too expensive. Unfortunately, these do not live up to what I am seeking. For one, the fit is weird (looks like Aaron Martin's review tells of a similar experience); if I bend down or squat, the backside of the tight is pulled down to reveal my butt crack. I end up having to pull them back up or it is rather uncomfortable. Also, I find these tights to be rather itchy (it's been some time since I last bought a piece of technical clothing that itched); most of the time I tend to not notice that, but it can be uncomfortable when I have a little sweat going from hiking or skinning around. Lastly- these guys are not that warm...not sure I would place them in the heavyweight category. Ultimately I would not recommend this tight to a friend of mine.

If you are even remotely fit, these will not fit. Zero stretch, the legs are so tight I can barely pull them all the way up. I did get them all the way on and the waist was loose and when I raised my leg it pulled them down. To recap, if you have skinny legs and a bigger ass and gut, they may work.
