I thought long and hard if I should crack open my wallet for these pricey pants. Very happy I did! I will wear them like a 2nd skin over the next few years. They fit great, the pockets are huge and zippered (great for travel), the material is stretchy and apparently very durable to top it all off. They fit very snug though so I'd order up a size if you think you are on the border between sizes. I'm 5'9" 170 lbs and the large fits great. I've come to the opinion after buying a lot of Arcteryx stuff that it is absolutely the best on the market. While very expensive it pays you back over years of use with absolutely bomber gear. I just counted and I have 3 beanies, 2 packs, 1 sun hat, 1 hardshell, 2 fleeces, 1 softshell jacket, 3 tops, and now this pant, all from Arcteryx. I love each and every piece. I'm an Arcteryx buyer for life.
