just about perfect

Recently purchased 3 of the Carhartt 50/50 ripstop cotton/nylon pants--a great lightwight pants for everyday around the house and work wear. These are all cotton ripstop but the addition of cargo pockets plus several other pocket-cubbies makes a great pants outstanding. I don't really need the double panel construction from the top of the cargo pocket to just below the knee--maybe over time I'll begin to appreciate that. Like the previously mentioned 50/50 cotton/nylon ripstop Carhartt pants, these are made with a somewhat low-rise crotch to waist dimension. In plain English, that means they ride a little low, more on the hips than around the waist. So, in my case I ordered the waist size 1 inch large--33 instead of 32. I noted the reviews of many other purchasers about the fit issue in deciding to go with the larger waist size. This will probably be a 3 season pant for me--the double panel making them a little too warm for hot summer use. Would have bought another pair but couldn't get my color choice. Received STP's usual expeditious processing, package arrived in c. 3 days.
