Good fit and well designed - better than pants twice the price!

Thanks to Sierra Trading Post, I was able to order several pants at a great price. I wanted to go with some nice, more expensive pants but the fit was never quite right. The Marker Mars (needed XL as they run small) and Outdoor research Igneo pants (L) were close but the Igneo were too baggy and had no waist strap adjustment and the Marker's were just a little off in the legs when bending.
So kept the Columbia pants in a Large (I am 36+ waist) and they fit perfectly with the waist strap adjustment tightened. The Columbia pants are great for movement and also not baggy/not tight. They also work well with insulated underwear underneath if needed for extreme cold.
(FYI-Mountain Force Beat(L) - has too short a waist for snow protection and funny in legs when bending; Boulder Gear Valiant (L) are funny in legs when bending; Mountain Hardware compulsion 2L (L) are ridiculously baggy.)
The Columbia pants are a great buy for the money and fit great!
