I order two pair to compare and see which fit me best, this pair, and the Marmot Motion pants. These pants had better ventilation and seemed to be just a bit more comfortable, though both were awesome. My only problems are the mesh gaitor and the way baggy legs. It doesn't make sense to make the leg opening bigger to let more snow in and then put in a mesh gaiter to do a mediocer job at keeper snow out. However, I chose this pair because of the better breathability (which might be because or the mesh gaitor) and the length. They're light enough I might even use them as rain pants when it's not too warm. I hate seeing people complain that pants are too long. I complain because companies only make pants thinking everybody fits into the sm, med, lg catagory. I'm tall and slim and can't find anything that's long enough. Thank you OR!
