I wore these pants 7 days a week while working on a lynx research project in the steep Juans around Silverton. These pants suffered through the wear of a long season without a scratch. In my job I expect all gear to fail or wear out in a season but I am excited to pull this versatile layer on for another six months this winter.
UL weight, mobility, breath-ability, durability and versatility are attributes I seek in my gear. Stoic has read my mind on these pants. From snorkeling on a sled to a 4,000 ft spring skin, these pants are comfortable and functional in so many situations.
Highly recommend these to anyone who values light functional gear in the backcountry.
