5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

The good;
Super burly face fabric, smooth interior to slide over base layers. Sheds water as expected, sitting on a wet lift chair is no issue. All seams appear to be well done and reinforcements where needed. Went flying over rough patches with no apparent harm to the pants. Full side zips work ok, two zippers that work in either direction. I love the built in belt for waist adjustments, and the fact that it is offset makes it even more comfortable.

The bad;
The mediums fit me just fine in Height and Waist, but across the hips and front of thighs there was no way I would get a base layer on. I went up the large size and the length is a touch long, but the added room across the hips was perfect. I have the waist cinched down all the way most of the time, but it fits nicely. I primarily use these for skiing and its a tight tight fit around the boots. Forgot about the 2 pockets, very small, with how tight the pants are on me across the hips it makes it uncomfortable to put my keys in the pockets.

Overall;
I highly recommend these for 3 season use if you are looking for a quiver of one pant that you can layer under.

What do i do if the sizing is off? I just got a pair of hestra Kaj and Sverre pro models in a size 9 and they fit perfect. The size 9 XCR gloves i just got are a full inch too long on my fingers. I see lots of comments about the sizing being on target so am I to assume I just got a weird sized pair?
