    Nice!
    I want to have a clever funny response to that, but I lack the key ingredient
    Do I detect a lot of anger flowing around this place? Kind of like a pubescent volatility, some angst, a lot of I'm-sixteen-and-angry-at-my-father syndrome?

    fuck that noise.

    gmen.

    Got my size large MT500 jacket today. I’m 5’9, with short arms (32.5” sleeve) but broad chest - 195 lbs, 41” chest, just generally bigger across the upper body .... it fits, its a touch euro slim, but really just fits, but I wouldn’t want it any smaller or layering/riding with it might become an issue, can’t imagine getting more than a long sleeve jersey and vest/mid layer under it comfortably. Keeping it, but yeah, there’s a size guide.

    Hope pants fit similarly but may size up to XL

    Thinking of getting the Endura 3/4 long shorts despite the lack of sale price.

    As usual though it’s hard to know what size. They list Medium as 33-35” waist (I’m 33”) but at 6’3” the Medium would prolly not go far enough below the knee.

    Trail riding pants

    From my experience, the medium would fit like spandex shorts on you. Get the XL. Unless they have an XXL.

    I have Endura MT500 pants, they are waterproof, very durable, and I especially like the zippered vents to let out excess heat on the climbs.

    What size for pants and you, how they fit?

    From the few reviews I read on a European retailer site, the XLs are pretty damn big in the waist. Like Seth Rogen fatass big.

    If Endura is too fucking stupid as a company to just list the waist size correctly then I’m not sure they deserve my monies.

    5'9", 38" (Winter) waist, normally 34-36". Fit perfect. But I'm built like a troll, not the skinny "athletic fit" type.

    This sounds like me, I’m sort of trollish as well, 33-35” waist. What size did you go for?

    I got my Large humvee knickers. They are really more like a 33 or a snug 34, IMO. I can’t see anyone wearing a 35 fitting these. Otherwise they are great.

    How are they on 30 degree mornings riding bike paths to the trailhead? Thoughts on fit? True to size?

    Sorry about that (duh). I wear a large in this model. A little tight right now. I fat bike in them, and adjust layers depending on the temps and ride. Normally short liners above freezing. I really like them a lot, would definitely buy again.

    Pretty much. Although it also applies to AM sprints to Sky Mountain, Buckhorn, etc.

    So, after going for a ride in the Humvees, I have to update my estimate. They are a little roomier than I initially thought, maybe more like 34/35. The fabric is actually quite stretchy. The built in belt makes them work, though. Probably won’t fit after July. They will be my spring knickers....

    I got some Fasthouse pants last summer. Rode them alot in the bike park in the fall, and also pedalled in them as soon as it got cold. I wore just a tshirt or a long sleeve merino for temps down to about 0c
    They work great with the POC Joint ultra small knee pads. They run a bit small. I normally run a 30, but these are a tight 30 with no room. Great pants would buy again instantly.

    Last years fasthouse pants are on sale for $60 with free shipping decided to grab a set to try. Sized up hopefully they fit. Been riding in my OR Ferrosi and want something a bit snugger fitting and more mtb cut.

    Trail riding pants

    Edit: itís hard to find size runs of good riding pants from a place where you can try them on and return them.

    Ill update. Still really liking my light weight fox but ive now picked up some duer stretch jeans. Between the crotch gusset and the stretch theyre the most comfy pants ive ever had, riding or lounging. Like a nice pair of jeans that feel like gym pants. So much so i just put in for the "next live lite" jeans and a pair of shorts. Might have to get some "all weather" jeans for the fall
