I bought the Ziener Termiz Men's size 56 (European size) pants and the fit is true. I wear 40 x 34 pants, and the waist fit and the length are both correct for my size.
The pants are insulated and warm, and most importantly they rise in the back which keeps the small of my back warm on the chairlift. The suspenders are well made, the only problem I had with them was that one of the buckles had a spur of plastic material on them when they arrived, which tore into my palm when I put them on the first time, but the suspenders did a good job of keeping the pants securely held up. The pants come with a replacement catch for the front, in case you break the one that is installed. The catch seems to be made out of lightweight aluminum, so I guess it will eventually give out after enough usage, but it looks easy enough to replace with the spare catch included (comes in a small plastic bag).
The pants seem to be well made and warm, and they look well made. They were also comfortable on the slopes and did not bind anywhere. You do have to pay attention to not get the outer material dirty. I bought the bright yellow/green color, which tends to show dirty more readily. If you wash them, the tag says that you have to impregnate them again after washing (which I guess is true of all waterproof gear). The picture showed back pockets, but these are decorative. You do have two zippered pockets on each upper leg on the outside which are large enough to store a wallet in. The seams seem well made and the pants seem to be be rugged enough to stand up to the occasional wipe out.
All-in-all these seem to be good quality and I recommend them.

I wore these pants skiing and riding the lift in cold, windy and wet conditions that made on think twice about why they were still on the hill. They kept me warm and dry or otherwise I'd have quit long ago!
Sizing might be small. I wear a 34" waist and the euro sizing 48 was snug. Okay for day use I would of chose larger for expedition use.
