Quite loose fitting, especially around the seat; and although they have elasticated panels in the waist, there is no belt supplied. The fabric is tough, especially the reinforced knees and seat, yet feels soft, and is easy to move in considering there’s no stretch. They’re quite lightweight in relation to the warmth they offer, and definitely better in summer conditions, where the leg vents come into their own too. They do resist water well, though, and they also dry really quickly when they do get wet.
