These seem well designed overall - light, warm, good zippers & pockets, good mobility. And I really like the Alpha Direct insulation (love the Ascendant jacket!). But I tried both the L and XL and the fit didn't work for me on either. The waist on the large was about right but it was a bit too short, and there seemed to be a lot of extra material below the crotch. The length on the XL was good, but then the waist was too loose and there isn't a good way to tighten it (and the crotch was even baggier). For reference, I usually wear 36x34 pants (or 35x33 if they come in odd sizes), with 34x32 almost always being too tight & short. Here, the L felt like a 36x32, and the XL felt like a 38x34. OR tops generally fit me perfectly but their pants/shorts are very hit/miss, and this was a miss. Too bad though - if they do fit you they would be a great midlayer for cold/wet days, or a nice outer for cold/dry days where you are moving a lot.
