Hard to know what size to go for. I'm a 31 to 32 waist without clothing and not very big legs, I usually fit well in slim fit clothing. I will be using these pants for ice climbing and one thin layer underneath. A size 32 should fit well or? I use Medium in all my other pants.
But with a base layer and a thin fleece I'm 34 closer to my hips (where I usually wear the waistband on pants). So how am I suppuse to messure?
you are better off ordering both sizes and then sending one pair back. there is no way to know which size you are with the variance in sizing among manufacturers, and even with a manufacturers line. backcountry makes it very easy for you to do returns, and will sometimes send you a return label if you order multiple sizes by phone.
I'm a 31 inch waist and the 32 inch fit me with some room to spare even with thermal long underwear on. Unless you're wearing thick fleece underneath I think the 32's would work for you.
