I have some of these from 2015; the 2018 version does not please me as well. There is no drawstring, and although they are the same size (5X), they are visibly smaller and feel skimpier when on. Still very well made.
I wore these QuikWik leggings during my vacation in Alaska and there were perfect. I wish they had the color black available.
These leggings are great! They fit well. They fit properly at the waist. No muffin top. They fit the legs well. The fabric is comfortable. The fabric wicks and dries quickly. I'd like a pair XL pair in black.
