Too fragile

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Small

After a year+ of using these pants, I have virtually destroyed them. The weatherproof panels are simply too brittle and tear on sticks and rocks. I've only used these for backpacking, and cant imagine using them for climbing. These pants don't last long enough to warrant such a high price.

That said, I have other gear made by Arc'teryx and I love it. Additionally, the fit and feel of these pants are great, and the monochrome style is excellent. I think if you got these pants made entirely out of the stretchy "gamma" softshell material they would be great. Just stay away from the water resistant paneling.

Excellent pants for winter climbing

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

It's tough to find pants that strike the right balance between having enough room and having so much room that they are baggy and get in the way. It's also tough to find pants that provide some warmth while at the same time not causing overheating during winter climbing. Getting both of these dimensions right at the same time...I haven't yet found another pair of pants that are better for me.

I have been able to use these pants in a very wide range of temperatures and weather conditions, from above freezing with no base layer to well below 0F and beefier base layers.

One particularly clever feature of these pants is a small attachment on the front of the cuff which will hook onto your laces (provided your boots have exterior laces), which really helps to keep snow out. Keep in mind, though, that the cuff is slim enough that these pants will not likely fit over your ski boots, so I would not recommend these as ski pants, although they can work in a pinch.

9 months a year

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: xxl

This would have been my third pair of these, have the two darker colors, but I found this years style cut smaller than in previous years So I returned them---this was the COAL MINE color I returned 2015---ex soccer player they were small in the butt

Superior trail pants

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

I used these pants this last weekend to hike to the top of Half Dome. There is plenty of freedom of movement. Not once did the pance restrict me. Even climbing the cables these were comfortable. They are lighter than other pairs of pants I have that are similar and they are a little cooler. All the pockets zip. This was nice because I wouldn't want to lose anything on the cables. If something fell out it would be gone. I do wish there was a rear pocket but that is just me. The weather wasn't to severe so I wasn't able to see how water resistant they are but the material feels like it would do the job. Can't wait to put these through some weather and climbing. I'm sure they will hold up and do it comfortably.

Amazing versatile paints!

    First off Backcountry's "perfect fit " feature is spot on! I have never purchased a pair of pants that actually fit proper. That is until now.

    These pants a fabulous. They are the most comfortable pant I have ever put my azz into ever! They stretch where they need to stretch and are practically bullet proof for a pair of such light weight paints. add a pair of ice breaker underwear, and if your like will never want to ware any type of pants ever again in the warmer months.From climbing a rock face to a night in town prospecting ;) these babies preform lol if you have a slim/athletic build...dont hesitate

    Don't leave your rain pant at home

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I really liked these pants at first. They were very comfortable to hike in and I experienced no leakage when sitting on wet rocks or in drizzle. However, this morning I went out hiking in a moderate rain. The temperature was 40 deg.F and there was a 2 to 4 mph wind blowing. After 1-hour, the right pant leg - just below the top of the stretchy lower section - started to leak cold rain water down my leg. The rest of the garment remained dry.

    These pants are not sufficiently water resistant for use in even a moderate rain.
