Well okay.... I've actually decided to return my XL pants and get XXL pants. So this'll be my second return. It's a little better than the L ones I first got, but I'd like them to be a little looser. When I mean looser I mean like snowboard pants puffy loose.

I don't know how else to describe it though. It's almost as if the L and XL are identical, except with a wider waist. I need the bottom of the pants to be wider TOO!! But the end is still tapered off with the same inseam and it's annoying the hell out of me.

XL will probably fit you fine, with a little looseness. But if you want straight and baggy pants, it would probably have to be XXL. That's what I'm planning on doing now. As a general rule of thumb, for Proto 07 clothing, ALWAYS choose one size larger than you normally wear. You won't regret it at all.

To answer some of your other questions: Yes, there are adjustable velcro straps (left and right) along the waist. There's also sort of an adjustable draw string (with velcro tab to hold it in place) along the ankle area, to close off the bottom of each leg and prevent any mud from kicking up.

Sadly I can't find either a tape measure or ruler around for the hand or glove measurements. But I can say that a size L glove will fit almost any average male adult. I've got some pretty big hands and they fit perfectly. If I have some time later on I could take a picture, with a coin on the side for scale comparison or something.

Cool, I hope the waist won't be too big on the XXL's and the velcro tabs will pull them in enough?
I don't have the luxury of returning anything, so I have to get my sizing right first time.

Could you guys help me pick out a pants size that would fit me, but leave room for me to grow into? I don't want to but pants now, and then like 5 months later or even next year buy new ones since they don't fit. I got my Dye c7 jersey, medium, it fits and leaves room for me. So that's good. Now I need to buy some pants, im looking into the dye c6 pants since they're only 65$ now I think. Im 5'1 and a half, and I'm 109 lbs. I don't have skinny thighs or legs, I'm fat, I'm average, or between average and fat. I'm a little bulky down there and a belly, but not a really big one. I might burn it off soon since I'm getting into running and stuff. Well anyways, I don't want to grow out of my pants since I'm sure im contueing til grow since Im only 13. Could you guys help me pick out a nice size for the Dye c6 that would fit me nicely, leave room to grow, and wont have me dragging them everywhere since they are too long.


I also don't know my waiste size since I dont have measuring tape, or really know how to tell.

do u know ur pant size? just grab a tshirt that fits u a little baggy and see what size that is. thats how i do it. pants are tough. you could grow 4 inches and stop. you could grow 8. id go with a little bigger than you would normally wear and just deal until you grow some. lol. shopping for younger kids is one of the toughest things ever.

now for me.

i was lookin at that new dye skulls jersey on actionvillage. i know dye usually runs a little big. i am 5'10" 190 lbs. my chest size around is 42 inches. which according to actionvillage falls under a large. you think an XL would be good for dye? or do you tihnk it might be too baggy.

The link to glove sizing isn't working, so i'm gonna ask this. from the start of my wrist to the tip of my middle finger is 8" exactly. its about 3.75 inches across my knuckles w/o thumb. what size of dye c6's should i get? Note: i have a pair of fox racing gloves, they are size 11 and fit perfect, i've seen places that 11=XL, so is that the right size?
I'm a christian baller. Put this in your sig. if you are.

I'm 210 lbs and 5'8, my suit size is 42 Short and waist size is 38~40. My typical shirt size is XL. I'm thinking about getting an XL because XXL might be too long for me. My pants seam is 30 (its really 29). Any suggestions from people around my height and weight? Im getting dye c8 jerseys.

I just ordered XL for jersey and XL for pants. I'm sure its not too late to change.

I don't suppose anyone would know what would fit me.

I'm 6'7, 170 lbs. 32 waist, 36 inseam.

I do wear custom fitted MARPAT camo, but would anyone know what would fit semi-correctly if I should want to wear speedball gear?
