Good length

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I am 6'2" and 205 lbs. I wear 36 pants and the size Large are perfect! The adjustable velcro is fantastic and the length is perfect, as well. If I have to be picky about anything, it's that the back pockets are lower than normal pants typically are. Even though they're cotton, they're soft and still feel sturdy.

sizing is RIDICULOUS

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
  • Fit:Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

Hope I got your attention because if you order from the chart you will be wasting your time! I ordered Medium which per chart should go to 37" waist. I ALWAYS wear a 36" pant and these would need AT LEAST 5" more before I could close them. IRRITATING AND RIDICULOUS! The other reviewer who said fits true to size is out of their gourd.

(Otherwise a very cool pair of pants)

sizing is RIDICULOUS

I'm the other reviewer who cstp763868 says is "out of his gourd." :-) I stand by my review as I just rechecked these pants. I agree that the sizing chart is way off. And as great as Norrona is, their sizing is really inconsistent from model to model. I just happen to be fortunate that Norrona clothes fit me great. Not the case with everyone. Also, my review is 2 years old so not sure how this model has changed. I just bought a different pair of norrona pants (Bitihorn lightweight) and had to size up to a large, even though I have a 33" waist and it fits great. Maybe something has changed. Sorry it didn't work out for you and didn't intend my review to be misleading.

Bottom line:

Norrona clothing is great
Norrona size chart sucks
Norrona sizing varies a lot from model to model.

Yeah, it took me a while to figure it all out, but worth the hassle.

great fit!!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

great fit from the word go - gets even better after the 1st wash.

pockets are ok - size 34 waist, bought a L and it works for me

Love the fit

    This is one of the best made and comfortable pants I own. A typical pant uses two piece of material for each leg. Norrona uses four in this pair. Plus there is additional cut and stitching at the top front and bottom back of the knee. The result is an amazing fit that moves with you. As another reviewer pointed out, the front pockets are a bit shallow, but I personally like that for casual wear - and for outdoor use I don't like anything things bouncing in the front pockets. The zippered thigh pocket is functional and adds to the "look". There is also a button thigh pocket and a zippered "pocket watch" pocket in the left front pocket - great for a key or I.D. My feeling is the sizing is a bit large. I am 6'3" and 175 and the medium is a great fit. I think the length runs a bit long as in most brands a "medium" would be way to short - and maybe a bit tight. But this in medium fits me well. I'd be swimming in a large. Awesome pair of pants. Norrona doesn't seem to be completely consistent in their sizing between different styles of pants. In general I'd size down one size, but that isn't always the case.

    Not sold on the pockets...but good pants

      Different pocket configuration from last year, and no more zippers on the front hand pockets-which I thought were handy when hiking or bouldering, but overkill when using them for a casual pant. The hand pockets (front and back) have no closure this year and I find them to be a little shallow-things fall out of the pockets easily-so use the snap cargo pocket or the zip phone pocket for the important stuff. I think they must have known this would be an issue, since there it a small zippered change pouch in the right front hand pocket. I guess this is just more of a casual pant than last year.

      That said, this is a product worthy of Norrona-comfortable, tough and unique. The waist adjustment comes in handy for me (6'3", 180, 33" waist 33" inseam) and the large is a loose but not baggy fit when adjusted. I usually wear a belt though as the length I need only comes with a large.

      If you are familiar with this brand you know the colors are often even brighter than the pic-and the "Green Meadow" is no exception. It is almost a neon green.

      Sizing is escew

        Watch out for the sizing on these. I got a pair from Norrona Direct a couple months ago and when they came they were literally 1-2 sizes too large. I have a 32 inch waist and these fit like I was trying on some 34-36. I would definitely size down to a small if the guide tells you you are a medium and large size down to a medium and so on and so forth. Other than that, breathable light and the amazing quality we have grown to know about from Norrona. Other than the size I still give them 2 thumbs up, I guess us consumers need to be wary of the new American size chart!
