Our five year old loves these pants. He loves soft pants (won't wear jeans) and these have a very soft lining. They are warm with the lining, which is great for cool climates and playing outside. Our kid even wears them in the summer though, so go figure. These and the purple Jax ones are his two favorite items of clothing. They're bulletproof too -- no wear from washing, no stains, no rips.
We are on our second pair of these. They are the perfect combination of sharp-looking, durable and comfortable. My son is very particular about feel and would love to wear sports pants all day, every day except that we have a rule that we wear sports pants for sports and school pants for school. We've had trouble with this rule (because of the feel of other pants) until we tried these Lined Ash pants and now he actually chooses these to wear to school and I am beyond thrilled and very, very grateful. Who knew the daily morning fuss could go away thanks to a great pair of pants? Thank you!
