Our newly minted five-year-old has had these pants since last October, and they are his top pants pick when he gets ready for school in the morning. He's comfortable in them all day long, and he feels they are tough enough for his most important outdoor projects. They have been able to accommodate multiple growth spurts, but now that he's finally starting to grow out of these, I'm trading them in and getting the exact same pair in a larger size. They hardly look like they've been worn and washed as much as they have.
Our five year old lives in these pants. He is very picky around the softness of his pants and these pass the test. They look great even after a zillion washings, they wear tough, and they have great pockets for treasures!
