Best buy!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

One of the best buys is a soft shell climbing pant you can use all 4 seasons.

  • Fit: True to size

I used these pants for our summit push on Kilimanjaro. They provided the perfect amount of flexibility while keeping me warm enough but keeping me from sweating at the same time. On the way back down they proved durable enough for sliding down with the shale.

Nice pants

Really enjoy these. I enjoy Patagonia's softshells and these are no different. I found the DWR worked great in rainy conditions. However, they do run a bit big. I have a pair of old Patagonia Alpine Guide Pants and I wear a 32 in them....I ordered a 32 of the Simple Guide's and wish I would have ordered a 30. I'm 5'8, 155 lbs. Other than that, really like them..

Tough Pants for Cooler Weather

I bought these pants for a trip to Zion for some climbing. They held up against rain, snow, and serious abuse on the rock. I am 5'11'' about 150 pounds and the 30in waist was spot on.

The one thing I didn't like was the two way zipper on the crotch. I was never sure if it was up or down . . . .
