Ken F.wrote a review of KÜHL Liberator Convertible Pant - Men's on February 20, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
I really wanted these pants. I tried this exact model on in a retail store who only had even sizes (32,34,36). I wear a 33, and in the store, the 32 was too tight as I suspected. So, I ordered 2 pairs from Backcountry, one in 33/34 and one in 34/34 to be safe. The 33's are close to an inch too small. I dont have a pair of 32's to compare them to, but the pair in the store could not have been much tighter than these. I will keep the 34, even though they are a tad too large. If I tuck 2 shirts into my waist, then I can skip a belt, but since I intend to wear these in the summer, I will probably have to wear a belt. The make and quality seem great on these, I just wish the fit was more consistent. I get that different manufacturers can have different cuts, and even the same manufacturer might not be consistent between different styles, but these are 2 pairs of the exact same make/model, only different in color, and the 33 is an inch too small, and the 34 is 1/2 inch too big... I know the 33 runs small. Maybe the 34 is running small too, just not small enough to be a real 33.
