For short crotch sniffers..
Great pant for the taller Cro Magnon shaped man and even good for the ever so stout Neanderthal and less evolved shorter mono browed dudes out there.. I am shaped like a brick. I think I have been called "Built like a brick shithouse" by more than a few. Imagine trying to find a pant to fit Fred Flintstone... Yeah, it kinda sucks. But these actually fit well and I can get them over climbing pants. The mediums still give me puffy butt but not nearly as bad as the large did. There is quite a big size difference between the two in the waist, butt and legs.
Just an FYI.. The new ones don't come with a stuff sack either, maybe that was last years thing and the description hasn't changed?
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Warm and very comfortable. I even did some climbing in them and they breathe fairly well when you unzip the side zips. If you want something warm that is functional around camp and beyond this is the way to go, love these! Wouldnt wear these as an outer shell climbing your crampons or even the ice will shred the material, its not meant to be durable or worn as a stand alone piece unless your just sitting in camp.
Not for me.
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I returned this product because the drawstring was essentially useless in tightening therefore I couldn't get the pants to keep from falling down. Also, one of the reasons I bought these was for walking the dog on cold Minnesota nights. The material was so thin and cheap that the dog could have easily ripped through when she jumped on me, as she gets excited for her walks. Overall I'm disappointed with the design and the quality of materials.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These are a great pant. Nice for sitting around camp at night as well as great to sleep in. Wore them with just boxers under them in sub 30 degree weather and was perfectly comfortable. The more durable material in the seat and knees is really nice as well.
Hello...i was wondering about the difference...
Hello...i was wondering about the difference between these MHW compressor pants and the arc'teryx kappa pants are? Which are more durable, warmer, compressable? THANKS!
Here's to my mini-review of the Arc'teryx Kappa pants:
- Gender: Male
I plan to use them for winter outdoor activities. My primary reason was to use them for flying during winter and now I see several uses of these pants.Best thing is you can put and take them off very easily(side zippers).They have adjustable waist velcro tabs. These pants look really cool and happy with purchase
How is the sizing on these - I intend to...
How is the sizing on these - I intend to wear them over shell pants, will my normal pant size fit comfortably, or should I size up? Thanks!
If you plan on putting them over shell pants (belay situation?) you should size up. The Compressor pants are designed to be worn as an insulating layer UNDER shells or on their own. properly sized, they have room for a base layer underneath, but not enough for a hardshell.
Disagree with you Dave. They are perfect over pants to throw on over shell pants. and yes sizing up is a good call.
Compressor Pants Rule
I used these pants for 30 days of winter camping in AK and I'm very impressed. They are light weight and very packable. It's nice to roll into camp and easily throw them on over ski boots and pants and get warm right away. No worries about getting them wet with the synthetic insulation. A perfect expedition partner.
Anybody know how much primaloft (grams)...
Anybody know how much primaloft (grams) is in these things?
120g of primaloft eco. Sadly, MHW has shied away from the much higher quality primaloft one.
Winter Camping Delight
These pants are awesome! They are extremely warm and comfortable. Their packability is on the upper end of decent but it is worth the extra space in my book. The reinforcement on the knees and ass of the pants are a nice feature compared to similar pants. The only down side to these pants, besides the price, is that the material can tear fairly simply.
Wondering about the insulation. This website...
Wondering about the insulation. This website says Primaloft Eco (which, I believe, was true last year; and the year before it was Primaloft one, I think). But I think that this year it's Thermicmicro. Can anyone confirm?
Also, mine came without a stuff sack (I bought it in a store). Can someone confirm having actually bought this and it coming with a stuff sack? Thanks.
Hello..I bought these from back country. Mine DID NOT come in stuff sack
I bought it from another online retailer last winter (2011), and mine did came with a MH stuff sack. The sack is just about the perfect size for the pants too.
