Good fit and nice design
on 18 January 2013
I bought these trousers after much deliberation about what size would work. Various reviews seemed to indicate there may be some sizing issues with these. Fortunately, Size L was not too big and not too small (I feel a bit like Goldilocks).
I have approximately a 35" waist and 33" leg - so I would say these could suit 34-36" waist and 32-34" leg. The trousers themselves come to about ankle level which will means they go nicely into boots with walking socks on - I wouldn't want longer than this as they'd just end up getting muddy and interfering with my over trousers.
The trousers themselves are snug but well designed - I have no real issues with them and would definitely consider getting another pair. The only 'complaint' I guess is that as another reviewer mentioned, they do build up some static but I think it's the nature of tight synthetic clothes like this, and preferable to being freezing cold up a hill.
So having recently had the chance to wear these in more severe conditions (hill walking in the January snow) I have been very pleased with their performance. They offer some good windproofing underneath walking trousers and do not restrict movement too much when climbing, despite their tight fit on the legs. Still really happy with these and considering getting another pair.
