So I bought both the Typhoon jacket and pants from MH. Both are made with Paclite and fully taped seams backed by MH's reputation. The construction is bomber! That being said, the cut on the pants seems interesting. I normally wear a 36-38 waist depending on the brand (38 in Dickies'). Im 6ft 3in and 225 lbs. The pants are generously cut elsewhere but the waist seems very small for a 40-42 waist size according to the size chart. I bought one size up in both the jacket and pants for layering purposes. The jacket provides ample room, range of motion and length to layer an Icebreakers Bodyfit 200 Crew baselayer, a Patagonia R1 midlayer and Patagonia Eco Puff jacket underneath. The pants BARELY provide enough room to layer an Icebreakers Bodyfit 200 pant and Patagonia Simple Guide pant underneath due to the waist. It barely fits. Additionally, my size 13 Salomon 4D quest boots barely fit through the unzipped leg opening. Anything larger, such as mountaineering boots, wouldn't fit. This is my first purchase of MH outerwear so maybe this is standard. Other than the waist, the cut is fantastic. I'm debating returning the XL pants for the XXL or looking for another pair altogether. If the zippered leg openings were 4 in higher and the waist was more accurately sized, 5 stars.
