The other reviewers are correct -- these pants are not true to size, but run small. There is no "give" in the waist -- no elastic or tab adjustments. I have returned them to excahnge for the next size up. Otherwise, they appear well made.

They looked great the first time I wore them new out of the bag but after one washing they look like something I shouldn't have purchased. I'm not sure what to do with the second pair I haven't worn yet. Yes washing instructions were followed.

I purchased these pants for a Boundary Waters Canoe Trip this past weekend. I was constantly in and out of the water, and (uynfortunately) experienced a lot of rain during the trip. As a result, I was able to see how quickly and effectively the pants dry. The pants did not dry as quickly as I wanted them too. And by that I mean as quickly as my primary pants from Colombia. The quality and fit of the pants was great, although the waist was tighter than I expected. I have a 30 inch waist and ordered the small. The roll snaps feature is great, and the pants kept my legs pretty warm in 50-60 degree weather. Overall, I would recommend them for fishing, but not recommend them if you plan to be in and out of water or in the rain all day. For the price ($25-30), they were a great bargain and will definitely serve as a back up to my colombia pants on future boundary waters trips.

The waist is disproportionately small compared with the rest of the pant. My size S pair measured 15" along the waistband ... good for someone with a max 30" waist.
I have a measured 32" waist and so I got some major muffin-top action when I buttoned them up. Interestingly however, the seat and thigh area fit like what a normal S would. I imagine that an M would fit fine in the waist but would be much to billowy elsewhere.
Overall, I like the material and features of the pant and so I will keep them and have the waist altered to fit me better.

These pants are very nice, but I wear a size 35 waist, some pants 34 fits best, some 36 waist fits best, I struggled because everyone is complaining about sizing being way wrong, I debated getting the XL, but ended up getting the Large it is a tight fit but liveable, but definately not a 36"to 38" as the size chart indicates. I f I was a tight 36" waist they probably would be to tight & would recomend the XL in that situation, do keep in mind they are stretchy also.

My husband should take a small based on the generic size guide and we got these pants in spite of the other reviews saying they ran small because he falls at the low end of the listed waist measurements for size small. These were still too small for him -he could fasten them, but barely and they pulled at the front button quite visibly. Everything else fit perfectly and they seemed like they would hold up well.
