Nice lightweight pants, but the waist size is about two or three inches larger than stated. Before ordering, I measured my waist at 42", ordered 40"; (so I'd have motivation to lose some weight before the start of the season) but when they arrived and I tried them on, they fit my 42"; waist, with a little to spare.
