Quality construction, Too large in leg

To start off, I am a huge MHW fan and the pants are a quality constructed product, I have no doubt they would last for years and keep you warm and dry. However, I am forced to return them for the second and final time because they are oddly sized. I ordered the XL so I could layer up and move comfortably but found that the pant leg was prohibitively wide-especially from the knee down. It was almost impossible to fit the pant leg into my gator, no matter how I tried to fold it. So I exchanged for the L (Backcountry sent me a free return label which I thought was a step above other retailers), hoping that would fix the issue. Although the waist was more fitted, the pant leg was still too large. It was also hard to even get the gators closed (OR Crocodile XL) and made my leg feel uncomfortably tight.

Dude, your gaiters go on the INSIDE of your shell layer. Otherwise snow and rain overtops the gaiter and ends up in you boots.

Plinko- why would you put gaiters on the inside? The pants already have a gaiter on the inside. Maybe you wear them that way, but I've never seen anyone wearing gaiters on the inside.
