I've considered that, and the pants are for sale or for trade:
They are 34L. I like the fit of Klim pants but I really also like the liner system in the defenders because when it's hot and sunny they are very lightweight and have excellent vents, whereas the Klim pants incorporate the goretex into the shell so they are a lot heavier. I had planned to buy some Klim Latitude pants to wear for a while and decide if I prefer them, I just haven't found a used set for sale yet. I love the cut I just don't know if I can manage the heavy construction.
...if only the defenders were cut lower.
