Awesome stretch - except the waist!
So excited to get these and the material feels so light and it's stretchy! But the waist, oh man, there is no give. It's a high waist so on a full stomach day these are not the most comfortable. Just confused why there is no stretch in the waist. Luckily the length fits me well.
- Lack of stretch in waist
I bought these pants to wear on a multi-month bike tour, and I love the material. They're light, stretchy and packable. And the higher rise makes it easier to sit on the bike without potential crack exposure!
But I'm pretty disappointed with the waistband. It's super tight, especially when I sit down or relax my abs. I'd prefer more stretch in the waist to move around better. If you had a teeny waist, they'd probably fit really well. But I like the material so much that I'm going to let them out a bit with my sewing machine.
For the record, I'm 5'2, 120 lbs.

So close to perfect... but not quite
I was SO excited when these came out. I bought both the small and the medium after watching the Instagram promo videos. Unfortunately the reviews were right- the small fit my legs so well but the high waisted top--while super stylish--was so disproportionally tight that the small didn't work. The medium waist was perfect, but the legs were too big and looked sloppy on me. I sadly had to return both. If there's ever a reboot where the waist is made a bit larger, I'm in.
I'm 5'4" and the length was perfect; I'm 140lb and I usually wear a small in all Oiselle running tights.

Amazing Idea, Just Doesn't Quite Work
I was immediately drawn to these for bike commuting and loved the idea of being able to wear Roga all day! I'm 125lbs, athletic build, and usually wear 2-4 in Oiselle. After watching the IG stories I couldn't decide so I ordered a S and XS. The XS fits perfectly in the legs but the waistband is far to tight and uncomfortable. The S is much too big in the waistband with a big gap in the back and there's extra material in the legs and seat the bunches unflatteringly especially when you sit. I so so wanted to love these, and the idea is amazing, but sadly the fit just doesn't work.

You can do a full split in these if you wanted to
Really Good Stuff: These are seriously amazing pants. I'm a huge fan of the roga fabric and have a few iterations of the Roga and Mac Roga shorts, so these were an instant buy for me. I got the crimson colorway, which is great. The length of the XS is also great for me at 5'2"
Not-so-good stuff: My one complaint is that the waistband has zero give. I'm 125lbs (typical runner legs with the big thighs), and typically a 26 waist in jeans and 2-4 in oiselle bottoms, but prefer the fit of 2, so I went for the XS size. Unfortunately, they're just barely uncomfortably snug. Like "I don't want to sit down in these pants" kind of snug. I wish I had waited for the sizing review IG video before I purchased, otherwise I would have sized up. So I definitely recommend sizing up for these!

WORLD'S BEST PANTS
I ordered two pairs of these pants and think I might need to order two more. I cannot express enough how awesome they are. They're incredibly comfortable yet appear classy. And as a bike commuter, the ability to move and sweat in a "professional" pair of pants is so freeing! 14/10 would recommend. All the colors.
