I owned these pants for several years before the seams on the cuffs finally blew apart and compromised the pants. While I had them:
The Good:
Durable: 4 seasons of 40-60 days
Comfortable: baggy if needed, but not in the way
Colorful: I had bright green!
Had these neat things that pulled the cuffs out of the mud for walking around with regular shoes on instead of ski boots.
The big vents did help to dump heat on spring days.

The bad:
Not very waterproof: your bum will get wet if you sit in snow on the lift
Not breathable: insulated
Not ideal for anything outside of lift serve skiing: would not recommend for backcountry

Since I replaced these with the Trew Eagle pants, I will now say that these pants were good at the job they were intended for, but not much else.This isn't a technical pant at all. In addition, Recco isn't really a tool for avalanche safety, so it's not really a useful feature.
