I'm 5'9 150 lbs and my normal jean size is 32x32. I'm mainly concerned about the length. Would a 31 inseam on snowboard pants be close to a 32 for jeans? The jeans drag on the floor when I wear them without shoes and I want the snowboard pants to do the same. I want them to have some wrinkle at the bottom when wearing my boots instead of barely reaching the bottom. I'd like maybe slightly baggy but pretty close to true fit. I also heard that 686 generally runs big. So, do you think small would be big enough for me or should I pass up on the $55 price tag to look for a pair of mediums?
686 smarty is a great pant and damn near indestructible. I've had the same pair for 3 or 4 years now. As others have said, they run on the big side.
