Was looking for pants that wouldn't be too hot for working outside. While working in temps in the high 90's and near 100% humidity I would often jump into the pool float around for a while to cool off then get back to work. My other brand of work pants would get very heavy feeling and stick to my legs, these don't do that. Almost felt like I wasn't wearing anything. The only problem I have is that while working and moving around on my knees it does cause what I would describe as "rope burns" and blisters on my knees. My other work pants is a thick double layer and is more cushiony then these pants which could be the difference. A pair of soft knee pads will solve the problem.
Size wise... 42 inch waist is usually a little too big and needs a belt, 40 inch is usually too tight. These fit just right and stay up with out a need of a belt even when wet. So I would say these 42 inch waist pants is really 41 inch waist.
depending how they hold up over time I would buy these again.

I like these for the above reasons very much. I wish that the legs were a bit more roomy to better accomodate long johns. I have to wear very thin long underwear under them for biking on the farm this time of year and through the winter. Range of movement is very good.
