Capistronwrote a review of Patagonia Alpine Guide Softshell Pant - Men's on March 26, 2010
Got a pair of these for hikes in colder weather. I've only used them once but they worked great. Used them on a snowshoe / snow shelter trip. The weather was a little warm for building snow shelters, but the melty snow just ran right off these pants so I was kept nice and dry. They were also breathing really well so I didn't get hot & sweaty while I was digging in the snow. Once the sun set and the temperature dropped I added some long johns and stayed nice and toasty.
My highlights: they fit really well (not too baggy or too tight), breath great & keep me dry. Really happy I got these and can't wait to use them some more.
