Joseph Wingatewrote a review of Volcom V-Bird Gore-Tex Pant - Men's on November 19, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Lets be serious, Gore-Tex is great stuff! And the Volcom V-Bird Gore-Tex Pant is no different. They mix the Volcom quality with bombproof Gore-Tex 2 layer fabric and a great slim cut for a perfect pant.
First Impressions: The pants look and feel bombproof! The Gore-Tex 2 layer fabric looks like it will survive the abuse and moisture of the Pacific Northwest with no problems. The number and location of the pockets seem fairly standard. The Volcom Zip Tech is a great "techie" feature of the pant that allows you to seamlessly connect your Volcom jacket and pants for a weather proof seal when the conditions require (i.e. POW!). As far as the sizing is concerned, I am 5'7" and weigh roughly 160lbs. The medium is a perfect fit, enough room to move, but still a slimmer cut.
Overall, I am rating at five stars on initial impressions.
I will be sure to give a update once I have been able to use in variable conditions.
