These pants have a wide, comfortable elastic waistband that sits where it should--around the real waistline. There's no awkward messing around with a stupid drawstring. There's no unflattering rear pocket: they have one normal side pocket and one cargo pocket on each side with one small extra cargo key pocket. The legs are wide enough to put on over shoes. There's nothing extreme or unbalanced about them. Furthermore, they cover your underwear and don't show a panty line from your white cotton briefs. If you're over 40 years old, you'll like these pants. Grab them while they are still available. Not your daughter's scrub pants! I wear them everywhere. Best scrubs I've ever had.
