Questions & Reviews
Fit: Slim but not pure lycra. It looks euro for sure and downright silly at the resort, but in the backcountry you'll just look...welll...euro.
Sizing: I'm 5'11", 165 lbs, and usually wear a 30-31 pant. I fit perfectly in the Euro S, American XS. That's right, there are two sizes, one for fat americans, and one for euros. Thanks dynafit.
Features: The drawcord waistband is inobtrusive and secure. The two hand pockets are easy to use and will stretch out to hold a race skin in a pinch. The horizontal back pocket is somewhat challenging to access, but carries a few gus well. The spats are a nice touch but frankly I think they could be tighter.
Big complaint: the pant is supposedly ok with TLT style lever throws. It's not. The side zip allows for the passage of the lever, and the back heel area has a space to cut out for the boot interface, but it doesn't function well for two reasons. 1: the pant is not snug enough to keep the hole in position over the cuff lock and more importantly 2: the zipper access is too bulky and will prevent the lever from actually engaging fully. It can seem locked, but will come unlocked. Dangerous.
I love this pant for the material, but I'm disappointed in its backwards compatibility with TLT style boots. Even when the lever is kept inside the pant, there are still issues eg. the pant is wearing out where it runs through the square peg when in touring mode.
This pant would be amazing if only they had kept the cuff style of the movement pant. Still, it remains my go-to for speed touring.
First up, great job with the one stop shop for all things rando. Next, I'm looking at the DYNAFIT RACING SOFTSHELL PANT but have questions about the sizing. My waist is 33" and inseam is 33 as well. I've looked at the Dynafit website and think I'm in between a medium and a large. What do you recommend?
I also have a 33" waist and 32/33 inseam, how convenient. Medium fits great!
I have last season's very similar Movement pants, in the "EU 48/M" & "US 32" size, which was sold in the U.S. as a size Small.
I'm about a 32" waist and 32" inseam, and if anything they're a bit big in the waist, though the elastic drawstring takes up the excess quite well.
