so far so good
Arrived yesterday, tried them on at home, and so far so good. Heading out for a 7 mile run tonight, so that will be the real test. I m 188cm with a 92cm waist (6 2 36 ), and find that I m between sizes, with no real idea which I should settle on. Height wise, the X-Bionic size-charts indicate XXL, but waist size says L - so I settled on the XL. As I said, tried them on last night: 1- I ve got quite big legs and backside (think cyclist legs), and they hug the leg very well, 2- they fit nicely at the waist, but there is a lot of excess material in the length, above the waist, (I could easily pull them above my belly button). While I don t expect made-to-measure, it would be good to get more guidance on the size. The size-chart for the Effektor pants shows height and chest size (why chest??). But when you click on the size-chart under the Service tab, you get S M, L XL and XXL for Mens Pants, while the size options for the specific item are S, M, L, XL and XXL - this makes it quite difficult to know which size to choose. It s all rather confusing. So I ll run tonight, see how they perform, and return exchange for a smaller size, if they start to fall down during the run due to the excess material above the waist.
