Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 105 lbs
Size Purchased: XL & L

I'm 6' tall, 190lbs, and wear a 32/32. These "kids" pants are baggy on me. Both the waist and inseam are off by more than 2" from the sizing info supplied. My 10 year old son is recently between a L and XL so I got the XL for obvious reasons. After seeing how silly large these were, we ordered the L, still too big. He hasn't been in M anything for over a year. First thought was to keep the XL for when he grows into them....real quick follow up thought was that he'll be in my hand me downs before these will fit him, so now I have to return or toss out. I'm baffled that manufacturers don't get the sizing standardized, and the same as item descriptions, so we can stop the online return clothes buying madness. It's 2019, let's get this fixed and move on. In the mean time I'll spend the 7$ and take the time away from my day to deal with this....again...

Hanger plastic piece broke under weight of full bladder in first 10 minutes. Then hose slipped off at bladder connection, then slipped off in another spot. Zip ties fixed the hoses, but lost most of the water and got soaked. No fix for hanger. Went to return and was pointed at Osprey for warranty. In mean time used gf's previous gen Osprey bladder, and first time out both hose leaked at bladder, and the plastic male thread for the fill cracked at base, resulted in wet everything, and ride over. Called Osprey and they said the newer one wouldn't be covered by warranty because there is a new model out (even though still within warranty period), and same for older gen, but that was actually out of the short warranty period (maybe they're only supposed to last a year?). They said they're now having another company make them, and implied the failures were the reason. I had switched from old, reliable camelbak bladders I had used forever without issue (other than the cheesy mouthpiece ripping or falling off) because of the plasty/rubber taste and what I thought would be a better fill system. Another gripe with it is no baffling, so the water just lumps at the bottom. Other than that, good ideas with poor execution, resulting in a wet backside and dry mouth. Do love the finger hold for fill, the placement of the tube disconnect, and, on the older gen, the rigid back panel and handle were cool ideas (where did they go?). My only other dealing with Osprey was a domestically made day pack I got back in the day, but got stolen in Mexico back in the day. That thing was legit. I use these hard and daily in the desert and just need reliable gear. Back on the hunt.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 185 lbs
Size Purchased: 30

Finally put a hole in a pair after 5 years of wearing an average of 3 times a week. Used for mtb, hard enduro dirt biking, moto trials, climbing, raft trips, etc, and hiking when they make me. Stretch like no other. Ultra light and packable. Dry very fast. Very abrasion resistant...abrasion proof, basically. Inside is woven in a way that makes them softer to the touch, not that plasty slick feel. I wear them all season with thin base under in the winter if it's under 30 and in up to 105ish in the desert summer. Side pocket fits an iphone plus with Otterbox and is still deep enough to not have to zip, which is now a prerequisite for outdoor pants. Ordering another pair today. @ 6' 180lb I'm normally a 32, but in these a 30 which gives a slim athletic fit that's needed for technical use.
