I had read reviews elsewhere that said these breeches are longer than most, and they were right! I'm 5'11" with long legs and these fit really well! Love the wide waistband - it's not too low but still trendy and comfortable. I would say they are true to size, maybe a bit big and the waistband gapes a very small amount in the saddle, but not enough for me to want to go down a size. I also find that they aren't too bulky in my boots as some breeches can be. Very comfy!I can't really speak to durability as I've only had them a couple of months, but I'm really pleased so far. I do wish they were less expensive, however I'll be buying another pair since there are so many color options that can be hard to find in "long" breeches.
