Sizing makes no sense

Reviewed by Maryland Hiker from Maryland on Thursday, December 19, 2013
I typically wear a 10 or 12 in women's pants. I used the sizing chart and ordered the XL (even though I've never worn an XL). I want something comfortable and loose-fitting for hiking but the XLs arrived and there was about a 4 inch gap between the zipper and my waist. Otherwise the pants were exactly what I wanted and fit well in the thighs and were the right length. So I ordered a pair of Ls. When I tried them on I couldn't believe how much smaller one size down was. They were extremely tight around the waist and thighs. So there is no size of these pants that would fit me. And the large difference between an XL and an L is very odd.
