I think he was talking about the "regular" Ultra II pants (ie Stretch Kevlar) rather than the Air Mesh version.
I have the Mesh Jacket and the stretch kevlar pants... great combo for my temperature range here in Pennsylvania. The Quad armor was more difficult to break in with the pants but I figured out a good method. I wore the pants around the house one night and strapped the armor down tight to my leg (with an ace bandage or some string etc) then it formed to the shape/size of my legs pretty quickly.

Just call and talk to him.
This is a lot of money to drop on a purchase, so by talking to him you can make sure you're comfortable that you're getting what you wanted. Plus he can help you with the measurements over the phone.
