Looking into getting some Ascent pants and wondering about sizing.
I am a 32" waist, sometimes pushing 33". How accurate are the waist sizing?

I have had bad luck in the past with ordering a 34 and feeling like a gangsta with them feeling very loose.
I wish these companies would make items in sizes every inch. ALthough I know it's a money thing.

They are pretty close to normal sizing however, I seem to find them being just a bit on the smaller side. Not much but if I was in between sizes, I'd go to the next one up.

That's what I was afraid of.
A friend has a pair in 34 and they were too loose for my comfort.

Thanks for the info.

I'm in the same boat as you TBuckus. I'm between a 32 and 33. All the Sitka pants in 32 fit me great.

I find that the Sitka pants have just enough stretch that you should be fine with the 32 inch pants.

Update;
Finally a pair of hunting pants that fit me perfectly. Looking forward to wearing them this season.

I would agree with this. The size is a bit snugger than my jeans, but the ability to stretch more than makes up for the slightly smaller size. This is true for me and I have really big legs so buying your normal size should work for most people. However, I still went one size up because I couldn't afford a second pair and will sometimes need to wear pretty thick base layers under them.
