These are about the weight of a scrub pant. The waist is a wide elastic that is comfy and stays flat. The legs are wider like a scrub too, with nicely sized and placed pockets. Inseam length is way too long for me but I'm short so I'm used to it. Taller people will find these perfect. Really, for the price, if you live at work these are a great alternative to regular chef pants during the summer months, or if your kitchen, like mine, is just outside a portal to Hades.
