Furious weather has met its match.
Designed to excel in the harsh weather conditions backcountry riders expect, the Outdoor Research Men's Furio Pant seamlessly combines exceptional weather protection, durability, and lightweight packability. Gore-Tex with Paclite keeps the pant light without compromising performance while Gore-Tex Pro on the seat and knees places rugged durability where you need it most. The side-zips allow you to ditch excess heat on the skin up, and the articulated knees provide unrestricted movement so you can make the most out of your hard-earned turns on the way back down.
- Three-layer Gore-Tex with Paclite technology provides guaranteed waterproof and breathable protection
- Paclite technology makes the pant lightweight and compressible for so they take up minimal space in your pack
- Three-layer Gore-Tex Pro fabric on the seat and knees is abrasion resistant for improved durability
- Fully taped seams mean water won’t roll down the fabric and sneak in through the crevices
- Integrated belt provides a snug fit
- Water-resistant front zipper blocks prevents rain and melting snow from entering
- Side zips help shed excess heat during bootpacks to the ridge
- Gusseted crotch and articulated knees allow climbers and skiers to move freely and get the most out of their days in the mountains
- Elastic mesh gaiters seal around boots to keep snow out
- Reinforced scuff guards protect against sharp edges and ski boots

Use this for winter 14ers mainly always keeps me dry and the wind off my legs, normally I end up unzipping them at the top to let my legs breath! These have seen 50+ mph winds and I never felt it on my legs!! Highly recommend keeping anything sharp away from them like ice axe and crampons, but that should be a rule of thumb anyways! I am6' 170 and the large fit me well. I do hate only having one pocket though
Good pants, a good buy
These are some of my favorite pants. Hardshell, very thin and light, very waterproof, and very functional. My only problem with these pants is that the waist is too big, the belt thing doesn't adjust skinny enough for me, so they are pretty much slightly falling down all day, especially with the backpack pressing on there. Most all pants fit me like this because I am super skinny, so this is a normal thing for me. still a great buy love these pants.
For when you need to stay dry
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
6'1", 200lbs and the size LARGE are still a little loose around the waist. Spent hours breaking trail and climbing in these in heavy wet snow and I pop out dry every time.
My only complaint is the single pocket.
Good pants but don't work for me
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I like everything about these pants - the fit is great and they seem bombproof. My problem is that when I wear them with a pack, the hip belt pushes my skin down on top of where the side zipper is on the pants. It rubs there all day and when I get home the sides of my waist are chafed raw and painful.
This may not be a problem if you are skinny in the waist (I'm not quite there yet). I'm going to get bibs for climbing and save these pants for resort skiing when I don't have to carry a pack.
Outdoor Research Furio Pant
I've used these pants for a few days backcountry skiing now and I've been very impressed. They're a great cut so fit well and are very comfortable. The full length zips provide plenty of ventilation. Otherwise they're no nonsense pants that do exactly what they should - keep the snow and wind out.
I gave them 4 stars only because of the (lack of) color choices. Not only is black boring but you really feel it when the sun hits them
I'm 5'11", 155lbs, 32 waist and the Medium fit great, if not slightly big and baggy. Bought the OR suspenders from OR.com cuz I like to use those when skiing, and they would sag a bit without them. I don't use these pants as rain pants when hiking/backpacking because they are too bulky and warm, but they work great as snow pants. You would think that paclite would be too thin for a ski pant, but they are actually quite bombproof and hold up great to falls and scrapes on ice, ski poles, etc. They feel much thicker and abrasion proof than my marmot paclite jacket. I really like the full-zips on the side, easy on and off and can use them as vents. The cinch cord on the bottom is great for wearing with snow boots, and the zip-out gaiters are great (but they are mesh, so when skiing in powder, some snow does get it, but not enough to matter). I haven't worn them enough to speak about the wear and tear on the seat from getting on and off the chairlift, but they seem sturdy enough to hold up to it and its goretex pro on that part as well. Overall great product, love OR and backcountry
Awesome pants, used them skiing, ice-climbing, hiking. Light-weight, well reinforced against crampons and ski-edges, full-length zips on the legs, powder skirts in the ankles. Never been cold in them, never got wet, and never felt restricted. If you're playing in deep powder bib / salopette type pants might suit you better or have a long jacket over the top.
I can't decide between these and the...
I can't decide between these and the Mountain Hardwear Argon Ice pant. Any suggestions as to how they compare?
Technically comparable - I found the MH pants, which I have and like, to have a larger waist than the OR Furio's. If I could do it over again, I would go with the OR pants as its a pain dealing with a larger than needed waist.
Can you help me decide what size to order?...
Can you help me decide what size to order? I am 5'11" and 185 lbs and usually wear a size 35" to 36" pant. I intend to wear these pants skiing and snow shoeing where I will typically wear a thin base-layer or a mid-weight fleece pant underneath.
I'd think you'd want to go with a Large. I'm 5'8 and 170lbs and typically wear a 32" or 33" and have been loving my Medium Furios the past year. I have larger thighs but still have adequate room to accommodate multiple layers and would imagine you should be fine with layers you've listed above.
How is the length? I am 6"1 with 32" waist
Waterproof, breathable, ventable, full side zip, great value!
With Gore breathability and waterproofness, this pant is packable yet durable enough for full on mountaineering conditions. I use them when space is an issue but need a rugged pant for unexpected conditions. They accompany me on backcountry ski days as well as adventure touring on my motorcycle. The fit is excellent for my "thicker" thighs & physique.
Ski and Mountaineer
I have skied and mountaineered here in Alaska the last two years with these pants when I need a hardshell. They work great, durable, comfortable and keep me dry... Great Pant, jacket is awesome too!!
i'm having some problems deciding...
i'm having some problems deciding which size i should take. i'm 170lbs ,6ft. i will be using these pants for alpine climbing. I'll probably will wear some thin base layer and a fleece pant under it. my waist are 31" and hips 35", inseam 32.5".
What size should i buy?
Hi Moshe, I recommend size Medium. You can check out our sizing chart here as well:
Do they use "Paclite" or the new "Paclite...
Do they use "Paclite" or the new "Paclite Shell" ? Quite a difference...
There is no difference between the two. Paclite is a 2.5 layer Gore-Tex shell.
Buy These Now!
I'm on my second season with these bad boys and I love 'em. As a ski patroller and back-country enthusiast, they've kept me dry in the most wicked of conditions. The fit allows maximum mobility and the side zips work great for ventilation while climbing. They're also very lightweight and packable for spring ascents.
Make sure you get the suspenders though. The waist belt isn't very effective.
I'm 5'11" and about 170 lbs. and just don't...
I'm 5'11" and about 170 lbs. and just don't know what size should buy. I need a pant to be used going to Camp Base of Everest, and with at least 2 more layers under. The Chart size sugest XLL. And I think it will Huge !! Some one here, wrote his is : "I am 5'10" and about 160 lbs. and bought these in a medium, ...". And it was good. What size should I buy??
These pants are comfortable and look great, but the durability is poor. I've ripped them twice and the second time is clearly a design flaw. They ripped 10 inches down the right leg from the zipper seam when I leaped across a creek. The stitching is a single thin row and the fabric just ripped away.
Come on these aren't pajamas, they need to withstand a little seam stress! Maybe the OR designers are expecting you to only wear them posing in a Seattle coffee shop.
Consider your size
I'm 5'10" and about 160 lbs. and bought these in a medium, and I have to say they fit fairly well for a hard shell designed to go over multiple layers. However, if you decide to wear only a light base layer underneath them, pick up a pair of the suspenders while you're here. The built-in belt only tightens to a point, and Outdoor Research, for whatever reason, manufactures their garments too big for the respective size. They need to reconfigure their sizing chart.
I have used these on 3 trips now and so far I love them, although they are for colder climates. I would like something a little more versatile. Too hot for warm climates.
Goretex inner started to peel off
I used these pants on 2 expeditions before denali with decent success. During my Denali expedition the goretex liner started to peal off to the point where there many areas that were not protected. Pretty scary starting an expedition. The pants fit great and I really dig OR stuff but I do not recommend these pants.
