Along the rain pants questioning, a question about experience on fit...
I was looking for a pair of the Tour XP pants. I generally wear a 35 inch waist from most manufacturers and the FJ 34 inch waist pants do fit me when I wear FJ pants. I was thinking that I would fall between the Medium (32-34) and the Large (36-38) in the Tour XP pants. I could only find a large pair locally to try on and the fit was a little large. However, I did not want to buy a medium from an online retailer and then have the fit too tight.
My thoughts go both directions. If I wear the pants over another pair of pants, the large may be a better option. My concern trying them on is they are generally more loose-fitting where I prefer a more tailored fit. If I go with the medium, they would probably be ok (I tried a pair of the HydroLite pants on in medium and they fit, but were a bit more snug) but it would be a little tighter outing them on in the middle of a round over another pair of pants if weather came up.
I am obviously trying to find somebody locally that has these in a medium to try on but have had no luck so far. The HydroLite are probably a good proxy, but they are different constructions (the Tour XP has a fly and the HydroLite does not) so getting them on and off is a little different.
Any experience on how these fit / sizing from anybody who has a pair?
