Matt Porter wrote a review of Mountain Hardwear Talus Pant - Men's on October 28, 2009
I have been using these MH Talus pants for a few months and have come to a few conclusions. First of all, in terms of durability and comfort they are great. I have had hiking/climbing pants that had stretch as one of their main selling points and the Talus are definitely my favorite when that is needed or desired. I have gone through some gnarly brush and rough conditions where I thought I might snag it or rip it and nothing ever happened. Secondly, for the multitude of uses these pants are good for my favorite is for trail running on cool days through Barton Creek. The light weight and breathability make these perfect with no fear of branches or bush tearing up my legs and ankles. My only real complain is other than the stitching at the cuff that other posters mention, (my right cuff is starting to come undone) I am not too fond of how tight they come across the male area. I definitely tried on the Small, Medium and Large and for my 33ish to 34 waist I needed the Medium, but it is a little tight down there and shows a little too much. Maybe you wont have a problem but I just wanted to mention it. Definitely worth the price if you can find them on sale. If not they are a great investment.
