I bought the green mojito pants to replace a crappy pair of sessions and an older pair of Spyder Godfathers that were quite possibly the best ski pants i've ever owned. I went with the Large because my godfathers are nice and loose fitting (I'm about a 36 waist) and the godfathers fit perfect. These pants however do not fit like my godfathers and were too small so I had to return them. As for how they look in person, the green looks good, but the christmas theme with the red zippers makes you wonder what Spyder was thinking. Why not blue, white, yellow or just black. Anyways, the red is pretty ugly on the green unless that matches your set up or you think no one would ever notice. In comparison to my other pants, nicer than my sessions gridlock but not near as nice as my old godfather pants, however you get what you pay for. After sending these back I opted for another green pant, the 686 smarty which I tried on in person and realized that they are awesome.
