Size Purchased: Large

I had the 2013 model of these and wore them for every possible BC outing, ranging from mellow winter tours in the trees to heli skiing in AK. They were amazing, breathable, windproof. My only gripe was they kinda had a Euro fit, especially for my huge thighs - I definitely received more than 1 "skinny jeans" comment.

Alas, I just got the new version and can say all the great features of the pants remain unchanged but OR relaxed the fit a bit. Now they are perfect.

I have 10+ pairs of Smiths and I've been wearing them for years. I can honestly say that these are my absolute favorites. The hinges are strong, the glass lenses are super clear, coverage is perfect (if you like it on the large side). I use them for fly fishing, mtn biking, ski touring and they haven't let me down.

I've skied this pants one season and they do a good job of keeping out the wind and wet. The stitching on them seems a little suspect (cheap, made in China type) though and I question how long they will last me. However, they are good pants for the price if you get them on sale

I recently bought this for my wife and she took it on a camping trip to the San Rafael Swell (night temps = low 20's). I was concerned it wouldn't be warm enough but she said she kept warm all night and never woke up being cold. The bag says a 25 degree women's bag is equivalent to a 14 degree men's bag.
