These rain pants have stretch material built into the waist and can vary in size about 4 or 5 inches. I’ve measured each size and put together the chart below that shows the range of stretch from “lightly stretched” to “fully stretched”. The middle of each range seems to correspond to what you would expect for normal men’s clothing sizes, so most people can just pick the size they normally wear. The best way to make sure you get the right size is to put a tape around your waist OVER the type of clothing you might expect to wear under the rain pants, then choose a size from the chart that puts your measurement squarely in the range of the pant.
Our Two Cents
The REV’IT! Sphinx H2O Rain pants are a slightly different twist on the “norm”. Please take a look at our photo gallery to see what I’m about to describe. The pants have a nice wide comfy waist band much like other rain pants, but the closure of the pants is on the side rather than the front. On one side, there is a long side zipper that zips down from the top and also up from the bottom (commonly called a two way zipper). If you put the zipper pulls about mid-way down the pant they are super easy to put on. And then the other leg has a traditional zipper that comes from the bottom up so you can put your other leg in easy even with boots on. Anyway, if want MAXIMUM access to the legs of your rain pants, I’m not sure how you could get any more than these pants provide. Otherwise they are nice-normal rain pants. The material is more fabric-like rather than plastic like (which is commonly found in more inexpensive pants) and it packs in a small space. There are also some decent night reflectives on the lower leg (we also have a night shot of this in our photo gallery). One other feature is the easy storage pouch. We tried re-stowing the pants in the bag after the photo shoot and didn’t have any trouble at all. Nice! :: Paul, 10-16-13
