I got a pair the 2011-12 3L Hover pants in medium in the mail today and THEY DO NOT FIT so they are going back. I've been wearing the 2L pants for years in a medium and the 3L Hovers are tighter in the waist and crouch.
Dude, you are comparing different models. The fit is NOT the same one model to another in the AK line.
The Hover pants are Gore-tex Pro shell, top of the line light as fuck shit, and a smaller mountaineering fit.
Your 2L compare to the Stagger.
For other examples, the Cyclic fits bigger compared to the Hover and Stagger. I wear L pants in Cyclic and XL pants in Stagger/Hover. XL jacket across the line.
Best designed outerwear and best high quality fabrics in the snow sports industry (ski tards included). Not the most expensive either in comparison to brands using similar materials. Best fit/style too IMO.
