I wore these hiking in Hawaii which was awesome. They were really comfortable except the waistband comes a bit high up and leaves you with a strange pattern around your mid-section similar to the lines you get on your face after a night of sleep-fighting with your pillow. The material really breathes well which I was concerned about because they felt a little thick when I got them. But they were comfortable and they looked really cute. They also felt a little big, I probably could have bought the size down and been comfortable in those too.
