The waist is about 4-6 inches too big and I step on them a bit, I put a belt on it but im still standing a bit on the pants and the front part of the pant at the bottom is close to the top of the boot. Problem is everywhere i look they're sizes are small and thats what i bought. Should i return them and look elsewhere?
I'm not sure I understand... is the waist too big... or are the legs (inseam) too long?
Try Stoic brand pants, they have a very slim athletic fit. I'm 5'9 150 lbs with a 30 waist and 30 inseam and the size medium fit me very well (for once I don't have my pant cuffs dragging on the ground). I actually got the bib pants as that bypasses any issues with the waist being too big and also is still the best option in my opinion keep the snow out (zip in jackets are a hassle to setup and are useless when you are just wearing a hoody in the spring/summer).
