For life on the mountain.
The Norrona Men's Falketind Flex 1 Softshell Pants are a burly pair that let you move on the mountain. The Flex 1 fabric stretches for your cross country skiing or ice climbing in the winter and your backpacking in the fall, and the fabric handles wear and tear. The pants are also very breathable so you don't feel like stripping down to your knickers halfway through a multipitch on big walls. Norrona added a DWR coating for water and wind resistance.
The Falketind has a tighter fit to reduce bulk for mountaineering excursions, but its fit doesn't restrict your mobility. Inner gaiters hook to your boot laces so they don't flap around while you ski or climb, and the Custom-fit waist system ensures an ideal fit regardless of how many layers you have on. Snaps at the ankles to seal out any cold elements you're facing on the mountain.

Great pants as of Now
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Medium
I am about to put these through a long 3 week hiking trip but trying them on initially they feel fantastic and very happy with the purchase. I am 5'9 175lbs and a medium fits perfectly!
Great detail and features
I love the lace hook garage. I can't stand those things when I'm not using them. The garage feature ends that issue.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I have worn these pants doing everything from biking to climbing, Backpacking to spring touring. Love the stretch and durability. All the pockets a zippered which is awesome for every activity. I tend to lose stuff so this helps. The adjustable waist is great when layering under .

Fantastic for cool/windy weather
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I tried these pants for the first time while hiking in Lake Tahoe in early May. The temperature was above freezing and it was ranging from chilly in the morning to somewhat cool during the day. Being in the mountains there would often be cold wind and these pants were perfect for the task.
They have a slim fit but they are stretchy as well. Every pocket has a zipper (there is one zippered back pocket too and a small, vertical zippered pocket on left leg, neither mentioned in the description, which adds up to 5 pockets).
Love the design and contrasting colors on the zippers.
The size is a bit odd. I have mine in medium, the only thing that'll fit my 33/34 waist and 30 inseam. However the waist adjustments have to pretty much extended all the way.
