Yay for warmth, nay for fit
on January 25, 2013
These pants are nice and warm... much thicker than my Duofold varitherm midweights I purchased several years ago. The downfall is the sizing - I am 5"7 105 lbs and bought the medium only because the small was not in stock and we had very cold weather on the way. Thank goodness I did - even the mediums were too tight in the waist for my liking. They do come up all the way to your natural waist (which is good for warmth), but I had to fold them down so they weren't constricting me around the waist. Folding the waist works, but it doesn't stay put all that well. They were a little baggy through the thigh (I have skinny legs), but not terrible. I washed and dried on warm and they shrunk in length - to the point where any shorter would be too short.
Long story short - size up at LEAST one size unless constriction around the waist doesn't bother you.
Make a more comfortable and size-accurate waist, Duofold, and I'd live in these things!
