Great soft shell pants. Very comfortable and breath great. I primarily use them for winter backpacking and they've never let me down. Excellent pants.
6'2, waist 34, large long fits percect
I have used these pant on a few big hikes, Mt St Helens in the snow and Kings Peak in Utah. They are very comfortable and flexible. They do not restrict any movement. Definitely my favorite pants to hike in. If it gets hot they roll up nicely. I am 6'2 and usually wear a 34 waist. The Med long were like spandex so I sent them back and got a large long, They fit perfect.
Very Breathable and Flexible!
Highly breathable and flexible pants, even for softshells. They have shed light snow and rain without problems, though they haven't seen heavy precipitation yet. Fit is true to size, but be aware that they are fairly form-fitted in the seat and thighs, so heavy baselayering will be difficult (the only reason I didn't give them 5 stars). Ideal pants for mild winter conditions and shoulder seasons.
Looking for something for winter biking....
Looking for something for winter biking. Baselayer underneath. Stretchy and mobile but not uber tight. I'm a 36x32...would a large work? I don't want to wear snow pants (too bulky) or knickers (little chilly).
I was also looking at the Patagonia Simple Guide pants...
mboehnlein. The Tanglewood Pant would work perfectly for what you are thinking of doing with them. The fabric is highly wind resistant, stretchy, and will keep a bit of the weather off. 36x32 = a large/regular... I hope this info helps!
These pants are awesome, super light, and reasonably warm. I don't like a lot of extra stuff with my pants, and these fit the bill perfectly, 2 hand pockets, and that's it. The material is also a bit stretchy, so these will be absolutely great for climbing in the winter. I'm 6'5 (32x36) measurements, and the large fits me perfectly with a baselayer. These pants tend to run a little bit small otherwise, I was recommended a medium, and got that at first, and there was no way I could get them on with my baselayer underneath, returned them, and got the large, and life is good! Only beef with the pant is, there are zippers on the bottom of the pants to be able to take them off over boots, but even with them open, I can't get the legs over my boots, they're just too small.

Would it be reasonable to try and fit a ski/snowboard boot under the cuffs of these pants?
Vince. I think they might be a little tight for your average snow board boot. If I were you I would stick with a shell pant like the Mountain Hardwear Hestia Pant for your snowboarding needs. I hope this info helps!
M.H. Tanglewood Pant
These are the paired-down version of the M.H. Nima Pant. The same material is used in the Tanglewoods (thorngard), which is a mid-to-light weight softshell. First, the fit is perfect. For reference, I am 5'10'' 185 and the mediums fit perfect around the waist. Trim through the legs, but not tight, which is perfect for alpine climbing (the best use for this pant). Enough room for a mid-weight base layer, without being skin tight. A couple of zip hand pockets, gusseted ankle zips, and a built in webbing belt are pretty much the features. What sets these pants (and the Nimas) apart from others is the material/construction. The thornguard soft-shell material is a step above other companies. I have soft-shell climbing pants from other companies that show a lot of abrasion from glissading, and self arresting. After a recent 2000 ft. descent sliding on my ass over snow/ice, these pants show little damage. That's proof enough for me. Price could be lower, but we all know that ain't gonna happen..
