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

My 5th pair of Palisade Pants - Lost weight and refreshed with all three colors. Casual Day at work to multi-day hikes, best pants ever. Dry quickly, take abuse off-trail and bush whacking, range of motion awesome. No belt and adjustable during strenuous activity. Bonus - has sizes for those of us that are inseam challenged!

Still the One, 20 Years Later

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Finally decided to replace my circa late 1980's Micropores. Shopped around for best resolution to my needs, including trying on numerous brands and models including the Julbo Explorer. My target activities are alpine hiking, peakbagging, nordic ski touring ,rock climbing, desert hiking and eye protection when bushwhacking. Light conditions may vary during the day so an all-round, versatile lens is required. The Spectron 3 is a suitable lens for sunny to cloudy light conditions. Other Julbo models address this need but...the fit wasn't it. The Micropore can be adjusted for a super snug fit, it will stay in place exactly where you fit them..... no matter what. For resort skiing I use the Julbo Race with Zebra lens. The design is classic and won't be out of style ten years from now. Do recommend an after-market case.

BEST PANTS EVER BUT....
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

reluctant to buy these. The 5 zip pockets were bomb. Have two pairs I wear for prescribed backcountry use and when I'm not in my work attire. Tell Arc'Teryx to go back a revision. Bump the price but put the 5 zips back. There is no Arc'Teryx substitute, especially for an inseam challenge gentleman like myself. OK You win, this is still the best backcountry pant for me!

To some the price of this garment may seem like an example of diminishing returns. I purchased the first pair for a peakbagging trip to Colorado and specific off-trail, scrambling and boulder-hopping summit applications. They are extremely comfortable, so much so that I had another pair shipped overnight to my hotel. These are definitely an upscale product that will exceed many price points..... for me the comfort factor combined with utility and durability sealed the deal.

Arc'teryx Theta SV Bib - LS - RIP
5 5

Second season with the Theta SV Bibs. Finally a bib that has fit and function for me. Regretfully. the SV's are a casualty and were ripped to shreds in the ER. I can honestly report that after 40 minutes flat on my back in the snow awaiting rescue, no moisture, no cold spots, no major body temperature loss. The only problem is my size is out of stock nationwide. The moral of the story, without question I'll buy these again.
