Gear Review

4 5

Anxious for snow

Haven't had a chance to try these out yet, but can comment on the great quality and say that they are damn comfortable -- If it wasn't for the cuffs, I'd probably wear them to bed!
The ankle/cuff reinforcements are a nice feature to improve durability -- the material seems very similar to my kevlar kayak spray skirt and could see it holding up very well to abuse.
Both the right front and rear pocket have an additional interior pocket -- wouldn't trust putting anything in the front w/o it falling out, but the rear seems like a good place to keep your phone/multi-tool/etc. in place.
As others have mentioned, they fit true to size. 32" waist here and the M's fit perfectly.

Only gave 4 stars as I have yet to see these in action so wouldn't feel right giving a perfect 5 and also did notice a few stray threads on some of the stitching. The stitches were in no way flawed, just had some excess hanging off the end so I had to nitpick. Otherwise, couldn't be happier with the purchase!
