these are fantastic. the soft shell gives a thin insulating layer. for the really drastic weather i'd recommend layering. they were fine as is for me. it wasn't too cold and i was moving fast. 6.1 215# 36 waist. i have the large. the waist and length is perfect. they are a little extra baggy. It's fine with me. others may like them a tighter fit. the extra deep pockets are a nice change from the other arc'teryx pants and bibs. built in gaiters help keep snow out. would be better if they had a clip to grab the shoelaces. the vent zip is on the back.. remember to zip it up before you sit down! They were fantastic for the last few days of freezing rain. my new favorite pants. enjoy!
