I ordered these as a L as the last pair of pants I bought were bonfire's from 2006 which also had a waterproof rating of 20k and have held up really well.I know I haven't shrunk in the last 4 years, but bonfire is certainly cutting their pants larger. Way larger. These things were huge! They reminded me of JNCOs from about '96. The leg openings on the large must be close to 26" in circumference and the waist on the large had to be near 38-40". I know big and baggy is all the rage for park riders these days, and I like a little sag and bunch in my pants too, but this is ridiculous. I'm sending them back for a medium and depending on how big those are may even need a small. I'm 5'11" and 175lbs...so do the math.Sizing issues aside, the herringbone pattern on the pants is pretty dope, and if they are anything like the last pair of Bonfire's I owned they will keep me super dry and comfortable for several years to come and that's riding an average of 50 days a year.I gave them a three star-rating right now since its the middle of summer, and I have no true idea of how they'll perform and because the sizing is not at all true to normal sizes. I will update at some point next winter.
