I owned these pants for several years before the seams on the cuffs finally blew apart and compromised the pants. While I had them:
Durable: 4 seasons of 40-60 days
Comfortable: baggy if needed, but not in the way
Colourful: 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 some
Not very waterproof: your bum will get wet if you sit in snow on the lift
Not ideal for anything outside of lift serve skiing: would not recommend for backcountry
Since I replaced these with the Trew Eagle pants (and have since gained quite a bit of perspective on how nice it is to wear waterproof hard shells on the outside), I will now say that these pants were good at the job they were intended for, but not much else. A technical pant, this is not. It's worth paying 100 for them, which was the cost to me. In addition, Recco is only useful as a body recovery tool.
