the best pants for the money

These were my first foray into stoic gear, and I am very surprised with the quality of these. The fit is perfect for what I would call the endurance athlete- otherwise known as skinny people. They are extremely comfortable and breathe better than my last pair of arcteryx softshells. They stretch very well and accommodate movement better as well. They do have a few downsides though- the front pockets do not zip closed (which makes no sense in a winter oriented pant, leading to them becoming filled with snow when you crash) and they lack a ventilation zip on the thigh to bleed heat on warm days. But, for the money these kill it.
