I was comparing the Valparaiso jacket and pants to the Scorpion Yosemite jacket and pants. I have a 38" waist which Alpinestars says an XL would accomodate. The XL could not, so I never had a chance to see how they felt while wearing them. I did not call STG, however, and ordered online. Perhaps if I had talked to an actual person, this could have been avoided. The DryStar liner is not removeable, so in hot weather this might be an issue for some.
