Sizing debacle

Reviewed by JLW from Alaska on Monday, April 7, 2014
Was VERY hesitant about getting these cause everyone is talking about the sizing and how they run small. I'm 5'11 and weigh 135, with a 30in waist (with most brands). I debated getting the medium since everyone was saying they run small, but my gut said go with the small. I am glad I did! They fit PERFECTLY. Length and waist are spot on. They have a stretchy bit in the waistband, but that isn't being utilized. I would say that if you had a 32in waist, the Small would fit you (the elastic would be stretched out mind you). So in my opinion and experience, they sizing does NOT run small. Now on to the pants, they seem pretty great so far! I haven't had much chance to use them, but they've held up fine thus far. I will say the cargo pockets do stick out a fair bit even with nothing in them, so that may be a turn off for some people. I like that there are zipper pockets behind the left front pocket and above the back right pocket. Extra security with belongings is always a plus. As always, an amazing price from STP. Trying to convince my wife to let me buy a couple more pairs before they're gone!
