slim fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 6"
    Weight: 127 lbs
    Size Purchased: xs

as a paradoxical outdoorsy girl and skinny jeans-wearer, i'm always on a quest to find pants that perform well and are flattering/slim fit. these are a pretty good match. i wear these in an xs, but if i wanted a more relaxed fit, the s would probably work well. i'm perfectly comfortable in the xs, but wouldn't be able to fit a very thick baselayer underneath. they are perfect for snow days with my icebreaker midweight base layer.
for my wildnerness first responder class, i had to lay in the snow for an extended period of time as a "patient." these kept me warm and dry, even while laying sedentary in fresh snow.
the bottom of the pant is slightly tight around my snowboard boots, but the zippers make them easy to get on. i docked one star because i did have a zipper fail on my first pair and had to exchange them.

Big-Ice Pants

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

So I decided to try ice climbing...yikes! On the recommendation of the San Juan Mountain Guides, after registering for an Intro clinic at the Ouray Ice Festival, I ordered these with 2-day shipping (nothing like last-minute purchases, great planning, yeah, yeah) and excitedly tore open the bag when they arrived. Stepped into these super-cool, wonderfully stretchy pants, hiked them up and...what the what?! These things are crAzy-long! I'm 5'7", so what's going on here? I check the tag - "Did I accidentally order a Tall?" - no, I did not. But what do I know from ice climbing pants. Mayyyybe when I get the demo boots and crampons on, they'll be fine, hmm. Nope. They bunched around my lower legs and ankles. Can you GUESS what happened? That's right, my crampon punched a little hole ABOVE the protective patch on the inside leg. Aarrgh! Was it still awesome? Heck, yes! But my boyfriend tried these pants on later and they FIT him. He's 6'2", for cryin' out loud! He's got his own pants, so he won't be rocking these babies anywhere anytime soon. Has anyone else found these pants to be ridiculously long? On a side note: nice goat on my helmet!

Love them

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Bought these for hiking ice climbing and backcountry skiing. They have been awesome for all of these things! They have areas of stretchier fabric in the crotch and above the butt so you can move easy and still be comfortable. Have held up well against rock and ice, only wear was from a wayward high crampon step.

Perfect Pants!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I bought these to use as winter hiking and climbing pants. I was worried that using a softshell wouldn't be windproof/waterproof enough but these are perfect! They are really stretchy and don't hinder movement at all. I wore them in -10 degree temps with 30mph wind with smartwool base and fleece pant midlayer and was comfortable (the next day I forwent the midlayer and was uncomfortably cold) They do run a little big--I typically wear size 6 in pants and ordered a medium and they are a bit baggy. I was originally going to return them but knew that I would want two layers underneath for some upcoming colder climbs and I'm really glad I stayed with the medium. The waist has nifty velcro straps that you can cinch down which negates the need for a belt. I also really like the pocket placement lower on the right leg so that items are easily accessible when wearing a harness. It's obvious that these pants are designed to function well.

Perfect Pants!

Are these windproof? Will they fit me with my cyclist booty/thighs? Thanks!

Are these fleece lined or lined at all? ...

Are these fleece lined or lined at all? Just wondering what the interior fabric is.

Best Answer Responded on

Hey,
The inside of the waistband is microfiber but other than that these are not lined so that they can breathe more effectively.

Hope that helps.

Responded on

They aren't like some pants where the inside feels exactly like the outside. There's some kind of fuzzy twill on the inside for warmth, but it isn't really fleece or very thick. It appears to still breath well.

Best winter pants so far

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

Just came back from a Canada/Northern Minnesota ice climbing trip and these pants held up like nothing I've had in the past. They have a great fit with kick patches and ergonomic knees. They don't sag and the Velcro waist adjustment was sufficient with out having to use the belt loops. I originally ordered the large (based on the size chart) and they were WAY too big, so returned them for a medium and those fit like a glove. The cuffs don't touch the ground but they also don't come ridding up when high-stepping or kicking. Also when wading through waist-high Canada snow none of it actually invaded my pant legs (even with out gaiters on)
I could get a mid weight wool base layer under these pants just fine. Ladies, please buy these pants!

My boyfriend wears these pants religiously and convinced me to buy a pair. I'm happy I did! These fit great, are great for touring and hiking, and are unbeatable at the price. They also fit great!

Love these pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I am 5'3", 125 lbs and the small fit excellent - I have a 27" waist and 37" hips. I love pockets and these have a big one on the leg big enough for your stuff (I carry my beacon in it) and they all zip. I've worn these back country skiing in Colorado with a light layer underneath and they are perfect. I bought them for ice climbing but haven't used them for that yet, I might get another pair so I two of them.

Amazing pant for alpine touring!

I purchased these pants for this winter season and I love them. Great multi-use pants! Fit is good, true to size, I am 5'1" 112 lbs and wear the XS, a little long in the inseam but with ski boots it doesn't matter. The ankles fit and zip perfectly over AT boots, blocking out powder, but would work well with mountaineering boots as well. I even wear these to the resort, they are so comfortable. They breathe well, I don't get overheated on skin ups, and it takes all day before they even begin to wet out. Material is tough and stands up well to East-Coast bushwhacks. Definitely worth every cent.

love them!

These pants fit well for females, and are elastic enough for almost any kind of activities, hiking, climbing trees, jumping off bridges, etc. They are warm enough for 30F+ temp, and is elastic enough to fit one base layer comfortably, which make it warm enough for 0F.

love them!
