Awesome pants

I love patagonia clothing. I have pants, fleeces, jackets, etc that are 15+ years old and still work great. I got these pants because I needed a pair of ski pants (I usually wear bibs). These are amazing and I can tell after just one season that they are going to last a long time. The fabric is comfortable, I love the long, full zips on the pants for easy access to my under layer and aiding in taking them off. The inner gaiter fits well around my ski boots and I don't have to open it up. The reinforced knees and butt area is great and won't wear down your most used areas. My only gripe is the front pocket zippers. I wish they zipped towards the outer thighs and not inward. I have to hold the end of the pocket with one hand and then pull the zipper with the other to close. I feel like if they zipped the other way, I could just do it with one hand.
