Four and a half stars, really. I'm 5'9" 162 lbs and a 32x32 in virtually any pant. I bought the 48 regular Abisko Lite and the fit is great. I originally ordered a pair of Vidda Pro in the same size, however they were uncomfortably snug in the waist (no give at all). Because of this I think they rode higher on my waist making the legs seem too short (they didn't quite touch the top of my shoe). The inseam on those was just barely 32". The inseam on the Abiskos is 31.75" but they ride lower on my hips (probably due to the stretch panel below the waist band) so the leg length is perfect for me. They fit the same as my Fjallraven Kebs.
There are 8 belt loops - awesome - and an internal mesh phone holster in the right thigh pocket. Also a french fly. If you are not a fan of the cinching straps at the cuff, they can be removed, a plus for me since I am sometimes wearing my pant legs tucked inside tall rubber hunting boots. With Kebs the cinching snaps dig into my ankles when I wear them tucked.
They would be a perfect 5 but the side vents only unzip down, so your underwear will be exposed no matter what. Side zips should have been designed to unzip up, or both directions. Also, since these are outdoor pants I would like at least one additional pocket, like a knife or small tool pocket. The Vidda Pros are less expensive but have 7 pockets!
