Almost a great redesign. I like the new PNW fabric and pocket layout, but the deal killer for me was the overall fit. To me, these fit like a well made pair of low rider jeans. The rise from crotch to waistband is much too small, making the fly pretty much useless and also compromised comfort. Personally, I would also prefer if they were a bit shorter. Since they are so long, the fabric bunches up a lot at the knee when wearing ski boots. If I never had to sit in these pants, I probably would have kept them. For discussion's sake, I am 6'1", 190 lbs, wear a size 32 waist 33 inseam in most jeans, and ordered a size large.
