DC Santoro Pants - anyone here tried these out?

I was curious about impressions of the overall fit, durability, and feel of these (DC Santoro Pants)?

If you wear jeans - size 34(waist/32(inseam) - would size Large work well?
<Fitment chart says medium based on the above #'s... but I've done that before - got mediums based on the pants chart in a diff brand - and the pants were slightly tight>

I have DC Severin pants in Large and I'm a 34 waist and they fit fine for me. Quality wise though they are not the best option. I have a pair of 686 and just got a pair of Celcius pants and they are leagues ahead of the DC pants in terms of quality. The DC pants also didn't hold their waterproofing well after about 7 or so uses out of them.

I'm my opinion, go with another brand unless you really into DC and love the pants.

Thanks!
Did you get size L in 686 and Celcius as well?

DC pants\jackets are functional but don't hold up well, I've never had anything from them last me more than 2 seasons.
