    my favorite purchase

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: medium

    out of all the gear I've bought at backcountry, these softshell pants are the best. Lassen, Shasta, Rainier, Ecuador volcanoes, Tahoe winter hikes/snowshoeing - I never wear anything else. Great fit, awesomely comfortable, warm on ascents, wicks well on descents, useful thigh pocket, useful gaiter clip for hiking/snowshoeing on hardpack - just a perfect softshell mountaineering pant. Every duffel packed for a trip deserves a pair of these.

    Burly fabric; alright sizing

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small-Regular

    After wearing these pants for 30-days straights in the East Alaska Range, I can definitely say I am a fan. The fabric is super burly, and withstood crampon strikes, really dense bushwhacking and just general intensive use. While they would be a little bit much for warm weather hiking, they are perfect for anything below 65 degrees Fahrenheit. The cut is flattering and practical, and the features are well thought out. I didn't find much use for the two hand pockets because I was wearing a harness, but the thigh pocket was awesome. Also, the gaiters/ankle cinch is really nice, though probably would not fit around anything thicker than a slim plastic boot (I used the Asolo AFS Evoluzione).

    The only negative I have is the sizing. These pants do run a tad long, which would not be a problem if the short version was easier to find in stock. I wasn't too bothered by it though.

    Overall, a bomber pant that I would definitely recommend.

    Super!!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: Small short

    I brought these for mountaineering in the Cascades in the summer, spring, and winter. They breathed very well while I was snowshoeing at Lassen this weekend. I usually run very warm, but these were perfect, even with my hard-shells over. them. I left the park this morning after waking up to torrential downpours and these got considerably wet while I was in the car changing out of my winter boots into more comfortable driving footwear. They dried fast and made for a comfortable ride, too. They are not constricting, but wish the thigh was made a little larger. I think I can fix that with some more exercise, though. Can't wait to wear them again in a few weeks on my next trip!!

    Perfect

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: Large/short

    I just got to use these pants a week ago temperatures ranged from about 43 F in the day down to 20F at night. They kept my legs warm without overheating wicked the moisture away when I did sweat. (Though my legs didn't sweat much) these were very comfortable and we're able to move every way my body did without restriction. They never got snagged on anything. And just all around felt very durable without costing any comfortability. Very impressed. I can't wait to wear these again out on the trail.

    Light weight and Durable

    As soon as I receive the pants I tried it right away , and I was amaze it was so durable , we went rock climbing in the Mohonk preserve mountains in NY .

    Light weight and Durable

    Best Pants Ever!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: S

    Been using it for a week now and I gotta say it's one of the best hiking/climbing pants I own/ever tried. Great pants. Very durable and well constructed. The sizing is true.The regular inseam was slightly long for me.they are slightly big around the waist, but are easily tightened up with the built in belt.
    I am not complaining through so far they have impressed with their comfort and protection. The pant breath but keep you warm and feel good against the skin. I have yet to take them on a big trip though but on small hikes they have been great.
    Overall, i like the pant. it has a good desigh, light quality, the fabric is not too thick. Everything is my want except the length of legs.

    Excellent pants

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size

    These pants are excellent. Perfect on a late winter hike up Old Rag Mountain in SNP: protected my legs during rock scrambles, blocked wind and chiil on the summit, but didn?t overheat once the late morning sun warmed things up heading back down. Hooks at leg openings were ideal to keep snow and rocks from getting in my boots. Used them a fair amount around the neighborhood during our seemingly endless winter in MD. Slight lining provided the right amount of warmth/protection from wind & cold while watching the kids sled but didn?t get my legs too warm while shoveling. Will be psyched to get them out more next winter. Pricey, but like all Arcteryx stuff solidly built to last.

    I love pants.

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I love pants and these are some of the best pants I've ever put on.

    Thick enough to resist all but the worst catclaw and underbrush you may encounter bushwacking or hiking. Breathable enough to shed some of that moisture on your approach. Warm enough for early winter ascents up mountains. Comfortable enough to rock for long days outside or running errands. Built in belt is awesome.

    My only con is the gaiter style boot clip to keep the pant down catches on your shoelaces when you don't need it to (90% of the time I wear them)

    I typically wear a Large in almost everything but I checked the size chart and I am a medium in these!

    Awesome pant

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size

    I was a little worried about the waist size but I just exchange from XL Regular to L Small and that was the perfect desition. Definitely I recommend this pant to be use in any season. I did my first ascent with them in NH in winter with 2 fahrenheit degrees and works perfect. A lot of snow and many fallen but the pants still fine.

    Awesome  pant

    EPIC Pant

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    Just got back from a 6 day expedition on Rainier. What are you waiting for? Buy. These. Pants. The Gamma AR's are my favorite piece of gear that I own. I lived in these things for the better part of 8 days straight and they held up exceptionally. Totally warm at 14,000+ feet at 5am in strong winds and breathable in 75 sun on the lower mountain when your getting absolutely cooked by sun coming off the glacier. I'm a 32/33 waist and the medium fit perfect. The pant has a super athletic cut so they'll likely fit you great. Low profile, amazingly flexible breathable fabric. I'll be using these extensively in the White's over the next 6 months. I recommend these pants to anyone doing multi-day or even single day hiking or mountaineering. The perfect companion for your peak bagging adventures!

    EPIC Pant

    Great Hiking Pant

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    i am 6' 210lbs with a 34 waist and the L/Reg is a good fit. could be a little tighter. i tried the medium and the legs fit better but the waist was too tight.



    i am a photographer and use these pants as my main hiking and excursion pant. i was out late at night at the beach and was taking some longer star images and wandered the beach and ended up walking into deep pools. the pants got soaked up to my calf but never absorbed any water. the DWR is great! the stretch on the fabric is also amazing. i have full range of movement and have never been in a spot that i thought the pants were restricting me.



    the only downside is the pants are a bit noisy. could be that they are new.

    Great pant

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:True to size

    These are a great pant, they are made for colder weather and not casual wear. They are heavier than the LT's and made to last a lifetime. I needed something lighter and will return for the LT's.

    Best.Hiking.Pants.Ever

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    I didn't do anything on the weekends this summer except backpack. So when I say these are the best pants ever, I feel qualified.

    I've worn these pants in 40MPH winds, temperatures in the teens (F) and snow. They kept me warm, dry and comfortable. They have a little stretch and are cut the same way I am -- no pinching when scrambling & no wedgy when sitting down. There is enough room to layer over expedition-weight base layer but still a nice, clean fit. Despite the use and abuse, they still loook brand new. A nice feature is the 3 pockets are all designed to vent heat if you unzip them.

    I highly recommend these pants.

    Versatile

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    After having more patches than original material on my old soft shell pants, the search began for a replacement. The criteria: Summer Alpine Rock to Winter Alpine Ice. Simple right, one pant for every use?



    Being familiar with the Gamma MX Jacket, I knew I wanted a pair of pants that had the same flexibility and durability. In combination with a trim fit, the Gamma AR Pants fit the bill.



    These pants are burly, however they are unlined, so layering them with a power-stretch bottom works great for Winter use in all but the most frigid temps. The fabric has held up to bush whacking approaches through dead fall trees and near misses with the points of my crampons. The fabric also strikes a balance between windproof and breathable making them great on the approach through the trees and exposed on the climb.



    The fit of these pants is also second to none. The built in belt allows them to be worn next to skin with a quick cinch on warmer Summer Alpine Rock days. They have a trim "athletic" fit that still allows for freedom of movement, with or without layers underneath. So far, soooo good...

    Unanswered Question

    I bought the "MX" and the "Rock" Gamma Pants, both small/regular. The "MX" fit like a glove but appears to be too long while "Rock" is just the right length. Where does AR stand in relation to these two in terms of length? Should i get regular or short? I am 32W/30L

    I wear Levi's with a 31" waist and 34" length. Would a small-regular be the correct size to order? Pls advise.
