This is a great pair of pants. I am 170lbs and 6ft tall. Usually wear a size 31-32 waist and length 32. Sierra's sizing seems to be a bit off. Thanks to the other reviewer I ordered a Small/Regular instead of a Medium/Large as the description suggested and it fits me perfectly.

    I was looking for a casual-fitting softshell pant for multiple-uses. I am 6 feet 0 inches tall, weigh 165 lbs and have slightly long legs and short torso so long length is a must. My perfect pant size is 31W x 33L.

    A size Small Long in this pant fits me very well. So nice to have technical pants that reach my ankles. They seem to be designed as xc skiing pants. They are "straight leg" but the cuff zip and gusset causes the sides of the calfs to flare out unless stretched over boots, and the thighs fit me a little snug, which excludes them from the "casual-fitting" category. I am still keeping them, however, because they fit very well and will be great for many active winter uses.

    Several reviewers have commented that these have an odd fit, that they have a weird low crotch and are too long. May I suggest that they are wearing them too low and that these actually have a slightly higher waist but normal crotch and appropriate length? In my opinion the higher waist is great since harness or hip belt doesn't hit right at the pants belt line and helps to keep drafts out and shirts tucked.

    While I wasn't looking specifically for a pant with internal gaiters, great that these have them (especially now that I know I won't be wearing them "casually"). It's minimalistic, however, as there is no adjustment or attachment. I may try to add some grommets and an elastic heel strap and maybe something to snug it around my boots.

    Materials is sturdy, not as thick/heavyweight as I was hoping, but close enough. Worn for snow-tromping with heavyweight thermals beneath in 0 deg F and could feel the cold on my legs but stayed warm while active. Beads moisture and sheds snow (hopefully that's a long-lasting feature).

    I puchased a small, long in the Lowe Paradigm pants and the fit was great as well as the overall quality. I wanted a pair with internal gaiters for ice climbing and skiing so ordered the Lowe Alpine version in small, long as well. Surprisingly the Small, long inseam in the Alpine pants are nearly 34" long versus 32" for the Paradigm pants. Don't know if this is quality control issue or otherwise but be advised.

    Great fit. I'm tall and got a tall length. If your tall and skinny it's hard to find outdoor pants, but these work. The butt area is tight but good for hiking purposes. Best use, cold weather outdoor wear.

    • The length feels pretty accurate to me and the waist feels slightly large. I have the short/small size.

  • “Could someone who has actually tried on/worn these pants comment on the waist/length I should get. On most pants I am a 32 waist (pants worn at my hips) and 31 length. I'm pretty sure I should get mediums, but I'm not sure about length... someone in the reviews section posted that they're huge.”
