C.Y.A.

Cover your ass. It's a code to live by when you head out into the mountains come winter time, and there's no better way than with the Mountain Hardwear Men's Returnia Insulated Pants. Their Dry.Q membrane keeps your keester dry, and the fully taped seams prevent moisture from seeping through when you melt through snow at lightning-fast speeds on your skis or board. Thermal.Q insulation makes lift rides seem a helluva lot shorter, since your legs will be warm, and the internal boot gaiters keep your socks dry when you've made it your personal mission to flatten out every last stash of fresh snow on your home mountain.

Good solid cold weather activities pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I just used this pants on a snowshoeing tour in yellowstone (January) with outside temps ranging from 25 to minus 9 Fahrenheit. I wore them with a medium weight long john base layer and they served me well both sedentary and on the move (with the vents open). After going knee deep in snow, waterproofness seems solid. I Agree that there is not much storage space and the pockets are a little strange. I'm 5'9 and 174 lbs - Medium short inseam worked well for me, and I didn't even have to use a belt. While not the most professional out there for that price you get a really very good product.

Warm and Durable

First off big thanks to Mountain Hardware and Backcountry.com for selecting me to review the Returnia Insulated Pant for the benefit of the Backcountry.com community.

The Returnia offers solid bang for your buck at $180 bucks. That being said it is not one of Mountain Hardwares most technical pieces of outerwear. While the Dry Q Core membrane doesn't wick moisture and breath poorly, it's not as high a quality as the Dry Q Elite membrane. The same can be said in comparing the Thermal Q insulation with Thermal Q Elite. If you're looking for outerwear for longer winter backcountry treks you will probably want to invest in something of higher quality than the Returnia. If you're looking for a warm and durable ski pant that's not going to break your budget, the Returnia is a great option.

I'm 6'3 and 180 and Large fits me very well (see pics above for reference). I wouldn't say they have a baggy fit, but I do have to wear a belt and feel like I would be swimming in an XL. The pockets are a little on the small side, and the single cargo pocket isn't really a cargo pocket. If you're looking for pants with storage space, look elsewhere. I love the Ambush edge guards on the boot cuffs, super durable. The ventilation works well, but could be a bit longer, particularly with an insulated pant where you're going to warm up quick as soon as you start moving.

I recommend the Returnia pant to anyone looking for pants with above average warmth for use in colder than average weather so long as the physical activity they're used for isn't overly exerting. For instance they're great for lift access skiing, but I would not recommend them for ski touring. If you're looking at the sub $200 price range and warmth is your priority, the Returnia is a fantastic option that I recommend!
