Light but tough outer shell pants with a perfect cut. Never had pants with such unrestricted movement and at the same time without being bulky. If there is something to criticize, it's the small pocket. If you put something like a camera in it, the position inside the pocket is unprotected on the top of your thigh (pocket is too small) - seen this better solved with other brands. But this is really a minor thing. I think there is no better Gore Tex XCR Pant in this category on the market right now.
