I am 5'6" 135lbs and I got the medium. The length is perfect. My only complaint is that the back side is just a little too snug, and the front is just a little too baggy. I actually roll the elastic waist once over only in the front, not in the back to compensate for the baggy front. I like to wear my pants at my hips and the rise is a little high. Other than that fit complaint, they are very very comfortable. I love running in them because the material is slick and there is no friction on my skin when my thighs rub together while exercising. The material is nice and thick and warm and they are obviously well made and I'm sure will last forever.

Exactly what I expected
I already had a pair of these that I had purchased in a store that have been a staple of my wardrobe but were now worn after many years. I wasn't sure when I ordered these if they would be the same but they were. The only difference was that mine had zip pockets which I liked, but the pockets are deep enough that it doesn't really make a difference. I am 5'8" and have a hard time getting sweats long enough (especially after washing) but these (large) are perfect, they don't shrink. Yes, they are heavy but that's what I like about them. Try wearing other sweat pants in the winter. These keep me warm and toasty when I take my dog for walks and it's cold out. You will need lighter weight ones for the summer.

They keep on goin' !
I have worn Adidas original fitness pants and have had great success in past years. Now that I am reaching 65, retired and have gone through some major medical issues, I found that I wanted some new Adidas pants so that I would once again be successful with my exercise program. The size and fit are great and they feel very comfortable to the skin. They will get me to the summer and a slimmer me. ...a little too warm for summer exercise.

Classic basketball warm ups, classic fit
I grew up wearing these track suits playing basketball! It's nice to not worry about an ultra low rise for a change!
They were initially meant to be worn over your uniforms so they are roomy, not fitted. At 5'4" and 130lbs a small in this pant fits well. Don't laugh at the position I played (down below)!! LOL. Small but mean :)
Love the quality fabric and construction - I own several pairs (I won't embarrass myself by admitting how many I own) and have encouraged other women I work with to buy them as well :) Last for years. Colors never fade. Timeless.

Wanting another pair...
I received the gray pants with hot pink stripes for Christmas, and they fit so well! I normally have trouble finding athletic pants that are long enough for me. These pants have not shrunk after washing, and they are very cozy. The adjustable drawstring waist allows me to cinch in the pants and I don't have to sacrifice a larger waist for longer pants!

What I disliked about this product is that they are rather tight in the butt area, I was expecting them to be a little looser. They are also fairly warm, so if you're purchasing them for summer activities I would recommend choosing a different product. As for the length, I'm 5'4", and these were about 2-3 inches too long for me.

Needed These; Just Right; Beautiful!
They fit beautifully. I am really glad that I got these. I got the white with blue strips and it will great during the summer months.

Good, But Not as Good as Before
Have a pair of three-stripers that are several years old. Have been very pleased with them, so purchased more pairs. In only a few months of wearing the new pairs, the material has begun to pill, while the original pair has not.

not what I expected
I've aloways loved Adidas but this pants was too heavy, too long, and somewhat larger than most "S" sized Adidas I've purchased in the past. I wanted the thinner material that looks just like the illustration. Next time, please indicate weight, example light, medium, heavy weights, or good for summer or winter. Would be nice to indicated if Petite sizes are available. Use pants for fitness, yoga, pilates, zumba, etc.

Comfortable & heavy for those cold days/nights. The only con is that the waist line is smaller than I thought. I usually wear xs/petite 0 & these are a bit tight around the waist for me.
