    I am 6' tall, 220 lbs and have a 32" inseam. I am not overly muscular. I tried a size xlarge and I couldn't even get my legs in the pants. I tried the xxlarge and my legs and butt fit but I couldn't step up as if stepping over a tree or climbing. I tried the 3xlarge and they fit my legs and butt and I had enough room around the waist for me and my hunting partner. Basically same problem with the jacket, 3xlarge to fit in the arms and shoulders. If you are a big fat guy with tooth pick legs and arms this outfit will be perfect for you. If you are a normally sized, non-freakish, person fagetaboutit! Outfit is made of the highest quality materials. However, if it doesn't fit what does it matter how it's made.

    To summarize, the pants are high quality material with a great design concept with exception to the proportional dimensions of waist to thigh (leg).

    Unfortunately the thighs on the 2XL are about 6 inches too small and the waist is about 12 inches too large. I can't imagine what a person would look like having a waist large enough to fill the 2XL pants while also having plenty of room to layer in the thighs! These pants run a full size too small in the waist and the thighs are a full 3, possibly 4 sizes too small.

    I am dissapointed as I really like the material and design of these pants. I have the jacket and love the side ventilation zips, would prefer pit zips but side zipes are a giant step forward in hunting apparel.

    Unfortunately Browning has continued this sizing problem with their pants into this years new Hydro-Fleece series as well. I currently wear Browning's old Hydro Fleece pants and their Big Game pants, both of which have suspender tabs that allow me to make lightweight bibbs out of them!

    I bought this product to use as rain/snow hiking pant because they are 3L goretex & because they have great pockets. these pants seem very well made & would be good for slow walking or sitting but definitely will not work as hiking pants for me(I run up & down mountains) & these pants don't allow much leg flexion range of motion. unfortunately i still haven't found a good goretex cargo hiking pant.

    READ THE REVIEWS. BOUGHT XXL LIKE RECOMENDED. I have 4 or 5 inches to spare in the waist but the legs and butt are still to tight. But only when I move. i will be sending them back.

    Browning has a serious design problem in their measurements for American men in their pants. I BELIEVE THEY ARE STILL USING THE STANDARD G.I. STATISTICS OF WWII 5'6" 145 LBS. This is the second AND LAST pair of Browning pants I will try and I only tried these because they were a gift!

    I ordered a size bigger so I could layer under them, they were still so small I could not get them above my knees.
