Taste Great, Less filling!

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Pros: Fits great into my Osprey 46 Exos and not such a hassle to put on and take off as the Typhoon Pants Mountain Hardwear sells. Worth the extra dollars spent.

Cons: They should've included a belt for the price of the pants.

I plan on doing a backpacking trip with lots of rain and snow. Would these pants do the job with long underwear underneath?

Would you consider these durable / comfortable...

Would you consider these durable / comfortable / breathable enough to hike in full-time or are they the kind of pants you only pull out if it's raining?

Used these as a mountain guide last summer in Colorado and they were great! The ventilation zips make it perfect for cold mornings that warm up as the sun comes out, and they are relatively durable. I finally got a few tears in the butt towards the end of the summer but I was pretty rough on them so I was surprised they lasted as long as they did. I'm definitely considering buying another pair for next summer.
