Perfect for my intended use
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: L
I'm using these for hiking. I primarily hike in shorts (all seasons) and need something that I can quickly pull on to keep me warm at the summit or if wind picks up to unbearable levels. I like that the there's a tab at the top of the zipper (at the waistband) so that I can unzip the leg area if I need to vent. They do run a bit large but it's perfect for my intended use, because I want to be able to put them on over hiking shorts. I'm a spot-on size 34 and I'm able to pull the size large on easily and secure them sufficiently. They fit just right not too tight and not too baggy. If I were to change one thing, and again this is just for my intended use, I would reinforce the seat of them (since I'll probably be doing more sitting in them then the typical user). I also like 3/4 length because that way I can have these on while having gaiters on also.
Thanks for the great review!!
