They're on the large size, which I like (I think the king is almost 4" tall), they feel good in the hand, they've got felt on the bottom - not sloppily glued but centered nicely, and their weight is neither light nor heavy - somewhere in the middle. It's so nice playing with nice pieces. My son and I are playing more chess now that we've upgraded from a 1" squares board to a 2" squares board.
