Nice pants, but huge!!!

I should have read the reviews before ordering. I'm 5'5" 125lbs, ordered a small and yes, they were huge!!! I even like to wear my pants baggy and a little long. If you're 5'9" and 160lbs order the small, they will fit. Other than that, they're a great pant, nice sturdy material, bomber cuff/ski guard, waterproof zippers, vents could be a little bigger, but they're located on the exterior thigh which is nice for hiking. Rasberry Rose w/ neon green zips is a cool color too!

I am 5'5" and 111lbs and ordered the XS...same story...HUGE! The couple of soft-shell pants I have from them are quite snug in an XS! Same when it comes to the jackets. I like Norrona but the sizing is a bit hit or miss. Sometimes snug; sometimes HUGE like this one. The Mountain Hardware Botka pant fits me pretty well in an XS. It seems to be the smallest of all the performance shell pants I have ordered and I will probably go with it for this winter.

Also tried Patagonia's offerings for this year...EVEN HUGER when it comes to the pants.
