Loved these pants. I normally wear Large (36' Waist) but ordered XL per suggestions. They still seemed a bit small and a little restrictive but doable. Love the zip ups by the feet, just wish they were more to size.

Although comfortable they are a little tight to get into. I really liked the 3/4 side zippers, it's great to get extra venting. I didn't care for the centered rear zippered pocket, I felt it might cause discomfort since it's in the same location that my pack's waist belt.

Very trim fit. Inside surface of waist band is non-slip elastic. Size L is quite tight on my 35" waist, almost uncomfortable. I bought them for cold weather bicycling - like the trim fit rather than wearing tights. Would work great for any cool weather sports.

These run one size small in the waist. I could barely get the Large over my hips. They are stretchy enough that even with my large thighs the fit was quite comfortable once I got them on. The side zips are 3/4 length, ankle to hips. So the pants don't zip off. Perfect to throw in your fanny pack if you use ski or running tights or shorts and want wind pants that aren't loose fitting in the legs.
