Nice lightweight softshell

    These pants are nice and lightweight. They cut out most of the features to help save weight. Paired with a good baselayer it is perfect for highly active activities. The patches on the insides of the ankles are great for protecting against ski edges or crampons. I have been a fan of these so far.


    runs large!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:Runs large
    • Height: 6'0"
      Weight: 170 lbs

    I'm 6'0" and 170lbs fit a medium in most everything. Pants usually fit at a 31-32" waist and 32-34" inseam.

    Length on these is great (esp with ski or mountaineering boots on) but they seem really baggy. The waist is 3 or 4 inches too big around! And there's enough room in the legs and seat for me to wear a base layer and baggy fleece pants underneath em and they are still baggy. I can live with room for insulation even if its too much, but the waist is just huge for a medium.

    Otherwise the material on these things is stellar. I wanted something uninsulated I could wear by themselves or paired with a base/insulating layer and these fit the bill. Wish the fit was actually "athletic" though. I have big thighs compared to most of my climbing buddies due to a history in rowing and then powerlifting and my legs are swimming in these.


    High Waist Time Waste

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    • Fit:Runs large

    5-11 175lbs with long dancers legs - wear 34/32 jeans and large pants in most brands.

    The waist on these pants goes up for days - maybe could remedy this by ordering a medium, but the fit in the legs and waist size was fine. They just end up about 2" higher than all my other pants. Keep in mind that the fabric is 1/2 the weight of of other BD dawn patrol pants. Well built and very minimalist, but going back as the fit is just too weird.
