Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Excellent gore tex pants. If I were to do it again, I would have gone for one of their bib solutions, but that's just a preference.
Light and dry. Knees are bended reducing the resistance in the stiff fabric when you walk, climb or ski.
Can take a lot of abuse before it tears. I have a little one on my thigh after three years use. I've used it for alpine activities.
The ability to fasten these to the shoes are also an extremely useful feature.
82 kg (180ibs), 186cm (6'2"), athletic fit and I have medium tall. They fit nicely, but I have to be careful though, cause I'm almost getting too fat for them.. :)
