i know everyone seems to love them, and my curiosity has finally gotten to the point that i have to have them....so im getting ready to order some.

my question is, watching the video on the kuiu website they seem a little loud, how loud are they? i havent really seen any comments regarding the noise so im assuming it really cant be that bad. i just want to hear some quick comments on that before i place my order

also im going over the sizing chart now, is that pretty much spot on?

thanks, sorry i go over and over and over gear before i finally buy it....especially when i dont get to see it first

They are very quiet, especially after some use and a wash or two. Sound is not an issue. And yes, sizing is right on. Order your normal pant size.

yeah im not sure what to do about sizing now, i didnt realize 34 waist was out of stock.....i wear 34/34 jeans but the waist is a little big because i like to wear them slightly low, not sure if i should try the 32 which they have in stock or get on the waiting list.....im half tempted to just order the 32 and see what happens because they have a good return policy

im at work until the morning i wish i had something to measure my waist with, just to double check

Yep, very quiet. And run true to size. Only have had mine for a month so only have about 7 days in the field with them but thats gonna change here soon.

I'm telling you. These are the best soft shell pants. Per order them to make sure you get a pair when they come in stock. They are true to size. You will not be disappointed.

USPS lost my 2nd and 3rd pairs of 34" Attack pants on Thursday. They say they were delivered, but it like someone stole them. It really pisses me off too because I was looking forward to wearing the major brown ones this weekend.

FYI, to the OP. They are the best pants I have ever worn. Perfect.

There not loud at all. There not fleece, but they are by no means noisy, and after a few washings and some use i can see them getting even quieter. Id say they are a hair quieter then my sitka ascent pants when going through brush.

My new favorite pants. Im very glad they finally started to offer them in 30in waist!

Sizing was a little small I thought. I wear a 34 waist and ordered 36 to be on the safe side. Glad I did they fit perfect.

I measured my waist yesterday just to see. It came in exactly 34" and my 34" attack pants are about 0.5" bigger than my waist, which is a perfect fit. Just an FYI.
