Construction and features are great. They do fit snug around the thighs. I wear a 32, even when carrying IWB, and these are a little tight around my legs, especially when squatting down. Makes pockets difficult to work with at times too.
Makers L5 Pant
Fit my waist but felt a little tight in the thighs. If you’re using the leg press machine you might want to size up. I started a return and customer service has been very helpful.
Initially, I purchased the size 32 short pants (I have another piece of beyond clothing of the same size) but found that while the waist size fit me perfectly, it was simply was too tight around the thighs and it was impossible for me to move in them. I sent them back for a pair of 34 short pants which arrived today and while the thighs are ok, the waist is too big. I was looking forward to using these pants for a hiking trip I will be taking soon but unfortunately, the poor fit won't cut it for me. Otherwise, the material feels great. I think these pants in particular would benefit from an intermediate size 33.
For reference 5'11" 170lbs. No thunder thighs if you were wondering.
Originally, I got the size 32 for my 34" waist, and while the waist was fantastic, the sizing on the thighs was way too tight. It was difficult to even walk in them, all while your crotch is in pain and aching.
The customer service was great and was able to get things swapped out for the size 34, but now the waist is a bit oversized and while the thighs are better, I'm still surprised at how tight they are. I don't consider myself as having tree trunk legs, so perhaps these are just made to be a bit on the slim fit side. Because of this, I would not use these for hiking as they are a bit restrictive in regard to mobility.
Otherwise, the quality of the materials is great and while working in them, I stay surprisingly cool and comfortable when I'm doing yard work.
Overall, great pants if you have thin legs.
