Snowboard pants too big!

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?

If their to big return them, go to a store and try on pants!

If you're gonna buy online get a tape measure, look at the sizing chart and make sure they will fit.

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).

Both, the waist is 4-6 inches too big and the inseam is dragging. the brand is foursquare model s2 Q. I read in another forum that they make things oversized. I bought a burton field sig fit jacket that fits ok. A little big but not that bad, so should i look into burton pants?

Sig fit is slimmer and ok (I have a Burton Cyclic jacket). I can't remember what size Burton pants I had (I think they were medium... and a little too big while the smalls were a little too small in the pelvis area). Again... the Stoic stuff fit me a lot better.

Like why do you people (the ones who ask this question bother) its obvious that its a serious question, trolls normally don't ask questions, they talk shit and spam links to website that give you viruses.
