So I have to say these are one of the best fitting pants I have ever bought. They are not too tight (and also not to baggy), the length is a solid 32 inches in the 30 inch waist, and the waist fits me perfect. When moving in them I can make dynamic movements with the legs, the gusseted crotch gives you a lot more freedom of movement. This pant is a lot thinner than many outdoor manufacturer pants and they are super cush for hanging out or a day on the boulder. I have a 32.5 inch waist. I usually have to buy size 32 inch pants, but these run very big so I had to size down to the 30 which laying flat measures 16.5 inches in the pair I have. To the review below, if the size you got was too tight, size up. I usually have to try a couple different sizes before I find the right one. That was definitely not my experience, I find these run big so I suggest size down 1 size. The color is right on for the peat, but I think the graphite is a little darker than the picture on here. I have both colors and love them, these pants are bomb, highly recommended.
These pants are super comfortable and fit great. Very versatile temperature-wise. Like all Arc Teryx stuff they probably won't fit well if you don't have a trim/athletic build. Great for travel, lounging, hiking, camping, low impact stuff. I don't recommend them for heavy activity that requires full range of motion -- the fit is snug (but comfortable) in the groin area.
I take these with me when we travel and for just knocking around while at home. They are very comfortable and they are also very durable.
Great fit and length. Light enough for warm weather. Super comfy for traveling. Definitely buying a second pair.
I put them on and I felt like someone grabbed a hold of my *use your imagination* and held on tight. Sitting down was a tough process and doing anything involved movement was difficult. I did not buy a size too small, I actually bought a size larger because I have a few friends who own Arc'teryx pants and told me to get one size bigger. If I had purchased the exact size I wear in jeans I probably would not have even been able to put them on.
Unless you are a bike messenger or someone who enjoys extremely tight fitting pants around the crotch area, and by extremely tight fitting I mean cutting off blood flow, then stay away.
