    Olympia Sentry - Very Odd And Difficult Fit

    I'm a 38 W 31 L Ordered size 40 because they said to size up if you want more room and to use as overpants.. Like all things Olympia, the build quality is excellent. Unfortunately the fit is just odd is several very key areas. The crotch to waist measurement is very short. The length of the legs is Jolly Green Giant. The fly zipper is very short and leaves an odd gap between the top of the zipper and the snap closure waist band. That's an important gap because the fly waterproof flap stops at the top of the zipper which leaves a gap for water to come in between the top of the flap and the snap.. Sizing: Don't believe "them" (online videos and Olympia's suggested sizing) when they say to size up if you want to use them as over-pants. They are really um, roomy. These are big pants except from crotch to waist and around the shin. Picture really big pants that bunch up above the knee armor in a clown-like puff or English horse riding pants. They run true to size so just go with that if you have your heart set on these. Length: The biggest issue for me came from the length. These pants are really, really long and are the same length for all sizes 38 to 44 apparently. They are 5+ inches too long for a 30 inseam. Although the hem feature Olympia advertises sounds good in theory, in reality, not so much. If you do hem them, you lose the velcro lower leg adjustment strap which is right in the center between the bottom of the pant leg and the bottom of the zipper. So it either has to go above the hem or you lose any real value in length adjustment Also, the pant leg bottoms are so tight when closed that they barely, but not really, fit over Forma Terra boots or even standard dual sport boots with any type of shin protector. The pants fit and looked so oddly on me that I didn't even take a chance on ordering the next size down because the length issue would still be unresolved. For me, having the pant leg zipper higher to allow for easy hemming is offset by the loss of lower leg adjustment. Aside from the length, I just cant have pants that fall below my belly button and have a gap between the zipper and the waist snap. This is just my honest review. Olympia makes excellent quality clothing and I own two Olympia jackets which I LOVE. I really, really wanted these pants to fit. I returned them.
