If you like to play in the snow, you want these pants.
These pants are warm, comfortable, snow shedding, breathable, and incredibly versatile. I took them out for an alpine climb today . On the approach, they were the perfect mix of wind resistant and breathable to keep me comfortable for the 6 miles (mostly above tree line) to the climb. While climbing, the warmth and durability of these pants allowed me to focus on other things while not even noticing that I had been standing in waste deep snow for 15+ minutes. I moved between ice, packed snow, loose snow, and rock and the pants had no trouble standing up to it all while keeping me comfortable the entire time. Lastly, and possible the most impressive thing about these pants, is how well they can vent when you need them too. The vents on the back don't do much, but when you open up the front pockets as well, then air flows right through them. The front pockets are also deep enough that you can still carry items in them while they are open and venting, so long as you stay upright. The venting worked so well that I managed to run the last two miles back to the trailhead in these pants and found it to be nearly 50 degrees when I got there. I would recommend this product to everybody.
One warning; I'm usually between a size 32 and 34, so I got the 34's to be safe. They only stay on when I tighten the built-in belt as far as it will go. So plan on them being a little big.
