I wear size Small in pretty much all other brands (waist 30, inseam 32, 5'9, 150lbs). I ordered these in small and they were super tight - I could fit in but despite the stretchy fabric, the pants were not comfortable. But I really liked the material,pockets etc.so I exchanged them for medium. Sooo, the medium fit great everywhere except the waist was probably 34''... too big.
Bottom line,if they fit you, they seem like great pants. They just didn't work for me.

this is a perfect example of what's wrong with The North Face: overpriced overbuilt heavy fleece that fits like a potato bag and cannot be used for outdoors.
The medium fit fine for arms and shoulders, around the trunk I could have fitted twice! Very heavy. I would never this this on a hike or climb.
Who buys this? Maybe it it were $20 and you would wear it home??

and climbing or hiking light and high. We successfully used in the winter as well, in stuations where we did not expect significant snowfall. Fits two people who don't mind laying close together. Don't plan on keeping too much gear inside. It is so lightweight that sometimes even when solo I bring this tent for added comfort rather than a bivy. For two people it is a no brainer.

great ski performance while still comfortable for walking/climbing. Most recently I have spent 16 hours in them straight. They are definitely wider than Garmont however still narrow around my ankles - thus they needed some boot fitting that helped but my let ankle still gets a little bruised. The Intuition liners are great, I had lace ups before and the Intuitions are warmer and easier to deal with.

I used Superfeet to fill up the volume, the toe box still has a bit more volume upwards (not sideways) but on the other hand a little bit of room keeps my toes warm.

Sizewise, my US street is 10, Salomon X-Waves Mondo 27 and the Scarpas are Mondo 27.5 (and the Scarpas seem to fit better than the Salomons!!).

I have old Pulsars. I just spent a weekend climbing with friend's Quarks and wow, what a difference!! Leashless, the pinky rest works great, the picks go in on the first swing and are easy to remove. Vertical ice all of a sudden felt lot less intimidating. I am shopping for a pair now...

the fit is sooo off - I am 5'9, 150lb and after reading some reviews got size small - when it arrived, it was still quite roomy around my body but too tight around my shoulders and sleeves were a little short. I am very very worried that if I sized up to medium, the fit would be way too roomy around my trunk... it is a shame because otherwise it looks like a great, warm, packable jacket and I really liked the hood. I know you are supposed to wear this with layers but with such a roomy fit I would need to have so many layers on that I would probably not need a warm jacket anymore... I think I will complain to Patagucci that they need to design something with an athletic fit.
