Alan Trickwrote a review of Patagonia Mixed Guide Softshell Pant - Men's on December 7, 2012
Familiarity: I've used it several times
These are definitely my favourite pants. They stretchy enough to climb in and waterproof enough to handle British Columbia waterfall ice which tends to be as much waterfall as it is ice.
Only a few problems: First, I got a cut in the crampon patch after a few days of use. I repaired them and it's been fine since. Second, I really wish the pant bottoms were less baggy. As it is I'm worried about catching a crampon on the fabric and going for a tumble.
