The sizes may be a hit-or-miss, depending on how particular you are on fit.

The built-in belt is a big plus, keeping the torso area uncluttered with any belt loops. Pockets are streamlined, and almost feel too smooth with the surface to hold anything. However, the pockets hold keys, wallet, or any small hiking accessory without a problem. The leg pockets are gusseted and expand out as needed.

The finish of the material, inside and out, is wonderful. The brushed interior insulation provided just enough warmth without being swampy when temps vary (trailhead vs. summit).

The leg length is the only complaint. Even worn over mountaineering boots, the inseam seems to average a bit longer than needed, leading to a bit of extra-length bunch up.
