    Fast and Light Movement

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32x32

    I use these pants primarily for summer mountaineering in the Cascades of WA. Their lightweight nature makes them incredibly breathable, so I can be comfortable on a fast approach in the valleys and on an icy ridge at 9000 ft in a whiteout. I love the integrated gaiter cuffs, they completely keep snow out and remove the need for gaiters. Stretchy material allows my to move freely while scrambling.

    Water-resistance isn't really there for these; they start soaking up water pretty quickly. Positive side is that they are very quick to dry. Also keep in mind there is minimal warmth when not moving from these pants.

    Best use is for climbing and mountaineering in the summer season and maybe fall and summer for mild conditions. If below freezing, I would opt for something warmer like the OR Cirque.

    Best Climbing Pant!

    • Size Bought: 32

    These things are so stretchy and comfortable, sometimes they serve as my "camping pajamas"! They are synthetic so when they get wet they dry out super fast .

    They also are super lightweight so they are great for trail running! The side zipper pocket is great for holding your phone/wallet - and fits outside of your harness!

    Awesome pants

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 32w

    These are my go to pants for anything now. Very,very comfortable. I love the zippered pockets and the stretchy fabric. Great hiking pants in the summer as they are very light weight. I am 175 lbs and 5'11" the 32 regular are just right. If you have heavy thighs go with the 34.

    Most comfortable pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34

    Just got back from 3 days backpacking in Bulgaria's Rila Mts. These pants feel great and are lightweight. I have a 35 waist and the 34 pants fit well. If you are wearing a pack with a decent load, then good to wear a belt.

    Great pant, but just for hiking

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: small

    Purchased the Ferrosi pant after reading many positive reviews. This pant is very light, thin and stretchy and perfect for summer hiking/camping, but that's about it. I took these pants on a two day alpine rock and ice course in Austria, and after those two days the material on the pants under my harness were already fraying away. The pants are just too thin and soft for use under a harness. The material can't seem to withstand the abrasion. So, highly recommend for hiking, but look for something heavier/burlier for more technical applications.

    Simple Hiking and Climbing Pant

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36

    Gearing up for a climb of Mt. Rainier I purchased these. I was skeptical that they would provide enough warmth and wind protection for the trip. They did provide exactly what I needed though. The fit is definitely standard and does not have an alpine cut . The belt loops accommodated my belt no prob. If you have any questions about these please shoot me a message.

    Simple Hiking and Climbing Pant

    Please add odd sizes OR!

      i was able to fit a 32 just fine; however, due to the stretch and light weight of the material (and my big ol thighs) it was easy to see the outline of my boxers and anatomy. So i sized up to a 34 which works, but leaves extra material around the waist that bunches up a bit. 33 would have been perfect.

      Also, the pant legs are cut a bit longer compared other pants advertised as the same size.

      Light, stretchy and comfortable.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 34

      These are light, fast-drying summer weight pants. The fabric is stretchy and non-binding, and the sizing is right on. I wear a 34" waist in most pants and the 34 in these is comfortable and reasonably loose through the butt and thighs (I'm a cyclist with big thighs). The inseam is around 34", and there is a cinch at the cuffs that will allow them to be bloused like BDUs. Moderate wind and water resistance, so don't view them as a rain pant. These replace cotton hiking pants nicely.

      float like a butterfly, sting like a bee

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      Awesome pants straight up. I feel that they run true to size and have a nice stretch to them. They adjustable elastic band can turn them into capris when you're it's sending time! I haven't been able to rip them yet through bushes or rocks. So if you have to wear pants, wear these.

      Overhyped

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 32

      I bought these as a lightweight breathable softshell for winter hiking. They shed snow better than regular hiking pants but you still have to brush them off occasionally. They breath well but this means they also don't block wind well. They fit snug like hip huggers when I got them but after 2 days the waist stretched out and now I need a belt. If you are looking for softshell pants buy softshell pants. If you are looking for hiking pants, these will do.

      Hey Jim - I better pant for winter hiking would be the Voodoo Pant:
      http://www.backcountry.com/outdoor-research-voodoo-softshell-pant-mens?s=a or the Cirque Pant if you are going more Backcountry:
      http://www.backcountry.com/outdoor-research-cirque-softshell-pant-mens?s=a

      The Ferrosi Pants are great for spring, summer and fall hikes, and great for travel!

      Enjoy!

      LIght as a feather, strong as steel

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 36

      On the surface they look like any run of the mill hiking pant. Then you wear them, hike, climb, ride your bike and realize they anything but average.



      I've had two pair for over a year and they are my go to for outdoor adventures. The cut of the waist and position of the pockets allow them to fit with a harness perfectly. The draw string at the ankles are perfect at preventing the cuff from slipping underneath my heal while climbing. The fabric's stretch allows full range of motion and knee raise without pulling the waist down and despite being light and breathable it's tough. Like knee-bar in granite tough.

      Great warm weather hiking pants

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 32/32

      These pants are great for hiking when it's not too hot and not yet too cold. They are very breathable and stretchy making them great for hiking. I also bought them in the shorts which again I love. They fit perfect. I am 5'10" and weigh about 180 lbs and I went with the 32/32 which provides a perfect fit. I would definitely recommend these pants to anyone who enjoys hiking or just being comfortable while lounging around the campfire.

      Comfortable and tough!

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 34

      Bought these for a trip to Alaska, wore them multiple days (without wash). Got rained on, mud, slid down rocks. Wiped cleaned later on and no tears in fabric. Bought the 3/4 pant version after returning home, had to have 2 pairs! Great for packing light on a trip and they don't get stinky.

      I finally found them!

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

      I have been looking for a pant for my long distance hiking trips and some kayaking. I was looking for a non cargo pant that had some stretch, was quick drying, and somewhat stylish. These are exactly what I was looking for. The gray is sharp. They dry lightning fast and stretch enough that there is no resistance. Definitely gonna buy a couple more pairs.

      Inseam too long

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 36

      The waist size was true, but the inseam too long. I am 6'0, 210lbs, and normally order a 36/32. This inseam seemed like a 36, and the drawstrings at the bottom prevent any easy tailoring. Otherwise, the pants are high quality and I would love them.

      Never wear another pair of pants again

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 30

      Whick water away, never so hot to sweat, durable even cranked inside pedals and gears on the trails. Comfortable even against sensitive skin!

      favorite pants

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 32

      I'm about to buy a second pair. I would say they run true to waist size with a slim athletic fit in the legs. Great for use with a harness and I also love the cinch drawstring on the ankle. It may get annoying for straight up crack climbing but it keeps the pant leg out of the way on slabby/face climbs. The side pocket is perfectly placed, the material is amazing.

      The best fitting outdoors pants!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 30

      I just got them, so haven't tried them in the backcountry, but the way these fit, like slim fit jeans, but really thin, are just perfect! As other reviewers pointed out they are a little large, which is why I ordered a 30 (I usually wear 32, I'm more of a 31) and they fit perfectly.

      I'm a 34 (waist) and 30 (inseam) what size should i get, the sizing options are a little odd. I just bought a Pewter Size: 34. Hopefully i got it right.

      Will there be size 32 coming in anytime...

      Will there be size 32 coming in anytime soon?
