These pants fit and feel great. I am 5'8" and weigh around 175lbs, the Large fit my 36" waist perfectly with room to move around a little. The exact fit I was looking for. I opted for the 30" inseam to wear these barefoot or with sandals on exclusively. Otherwise I would have gone with the 32" to wear with boots.
(For those who don't understand the sizing, the XS: 28", Small: 30"-32", Medium: 34", Large: 36"-38", XL: 40"-42", XXL: 44"-46").
The brief on the inside feels fine, nothing special there but reminds me of wearing swim trunks when I was a kid in the 80's...aside from that there is a drawstring on the inside too, which the description doesn't mention. A nice touch for those thinking that this is exclusively an elastic waistband and may not want to buy these based on that. So they are able to cinch tight if needed.
The pockets are all good sized and are mesh as well, allowing more air flow from them. The back pocket has a nice zip closure for those items you don't want to fall out, like credit cards or cash. And the little lower "carpenter" pant pocket (as i'm calling it), fits an iPhone 5C with an Otterbox case perfectly! It is probably meant to hold a fisherman's pliers or multitool, but will fit anything like that.
The PFG throws me off a little bit, as I don't see why they didn't just leave that out (i'm not a fisherman), and it saying that on them makes people who don't fish not want to wear or buy stuff that says "it's for fishing" in. Not a big deal, if I really wanted to I could unstitch the little patch logo and be done with it.
These pants are a summer weight for sure, and actually look very sharp by themselves. I plan to wear these at a beach wedding this summer. The "Fossil" color is a nice natural tan, blends perfectly with beaches, dunes, or desert environments. The "Cypress" color is a lovely mossy shade that would be great in any forest, jungle, or mountain range. (Get both).
Other than that, these pants are really great, lightweight, packable, and affordable! I highly recommend, and will be buying the other color as well.
