An update: Bought these, and they fit like flood pants, it's ridiculous. I'm guessing these are strictly for guys who climb mountains and need there ankles exposed for whatever reason.. I have no idea why there's a boot hook, these wouldn't even come close to being able to hook onto a boot, unless it's a commando boot. Also bought the Gamma SL Hybrid, and had a similar problem, but the SLhybrid pants were at least two inches longer in the leg, so it's not my long legs, these pants really are just short. Oh and they sag a lot under the ass, on the upper thigh.. I love a lot of arcteryx gear, really dislike all their pants.

Mads, a quick question for you.. What jacket would hold up to being stabbed with an icepick? I didn't realize gore-tex made a bat suit ;)

Roy, gore-tex paclite gets a lot of flack on reviews, but honestly a proshell jacket will rip in the same situation a paclite will.. It's just for general wear and tear over the years, a proshell will hold out longer.

Anyone can do an alteration to a non-seam-sealed nylon pant. Should run you like $5-10 bucks at most for length. $10 to let out the waste (if extra fabric allows, but the nylon will have tiny micro holes if you let it out). And under $20 to make the pants more slim. I'm basing this btw on big city pricing, it's probably cheaper in smaller towns. The only time I'd be hesitant to have alterations done, is on a seam-sealed pant.

Hi,
I wear a 10 in converse jack purcell. a 10 in adidas porsche design, and a 10.5 in most nike running shoes. My foot measures exactly 28cm if done while standing up with a ruler. And I fit comfortably into a 11 US in all Salomon shoes. The 10 and 10.5 fit me, but I feel as if my toe would hurt after walking a while as it's just about at the tip. I also have somewhat narrow feet, and the 11 still manages to grip my foot. So I hope this helps you!

Hi rpep, do you think you could do me a huge favor and measure your foot with a ruler or tape measure, and tell me your size in mm from heel to tip of longest toe?

And to answer your question, the fleece might give a slight bit, but the rubber of the boot will not. So if the fleece is in the boot snugly, then you're SOL, and should return them for a bigger size.
