Default Need some help with pants

I'm not too concerned with color, although I'd prefer black or dark grey. Most of the sizing charts I've found here and on other sites peg me right between a size M and L for most brands. Am I correct in assuming that I should go for the larger size so I can add some layers underneath when it gets chilly?

I do plan on hitting up the local skate/snow shop tomorrow to see what they can tell me regarding snowpants, but I figured I'd ask a few questions around here. I'm normally leery about buying clothing online because I like to try it on first; which is why I tend to buy stuff at a local shop. Plus, the added benefit of buying locally (for me) is that if I buy something today, it's mine today...there's no waiting for shipping. However, these pants I found on the-house.com seem to be a pretty darn good deal. Is it worth stalking WhiskeyMilitia and other discount websites at the cost of waiting a week or more for shipping (I'm in BFE, it really does take that long sometimes), and not getting to try anything on?

I've pretty much ruled out buying locally...Seems all the shops have left is 3-5 pairs of XXXXXL pants.

So, I'm looking for some opinions on Foursquare Wong pants or Airblaster Boardshort pants. I tried searching, but I didn't find anything.

I personally am a 686 whore but their "Smarty" cargo pants are my favorite pants.

I was riding eariler in the year at -17f with windchill weather with nothing under my pants other than a super thin base layer and my legs were super warm all day.
As of my last trip it was like 50f all day, rode with the Smarty liner removed and vents open and I could not of been more comfortable.

What's the word on Planet Earth pants? The guy at the ski shop says nothing but good things (I finally found the local ski shop, lol), and they've got PE pants on a 40% off sale. I read on here that the jackets are nice, but couldn't find anything regarding pants.
