Riders Dream

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I purchased the Stotic Tour. I know these are now disco'ed but this style & its predecessor have very similar features. So the review_ I'm 5'10"210 34 waist muscular frame. I have read the post which were very helpful. People said the pants were for tall thin people & they were right. So when I made my purchase I brought the XL it was the correct choice for me. Note; because the pants are a slim profile cut getting a size larger makes them look like a nice loose fit. Espically for us people that have a but LOL!!! The length was fine because they are tapered at the bottom. so they stretch over the ski boots and fit nice over regular boots. The big plus was they stretch like crazy. I seriously mean extremely flexible not once did I feel like I was coming out of them because they were to loose or confined because they were to tight. Its an inherent problem for 34" we fall into the L & XL category. I laughed when we got to the slopes my friend asked if I was changing. The fact that they were insulated is a pro-bo. My snow bro was complaining cause he didn't have his insulated NorthFace & was chilling up cause it was 25 & windy. The 1 zip thigh & backs were fine to secure my valuables the unzipped front pockets worked well for tissue & junk the expensive brands have nothing on these period.

Solid pants

    Used them once for some summer touring and thought I would post up a review. Like most people said.. the fit is a bit strange haha, made for taller - skinnier people (the fact that they stretch means that they will fit most people). Ankles are very snug against ski boots - but possible to get over boots without unsnapping them. Material is great, very comfortable and seemed pretty durable. The pants seem well thought out. I see a couple people complaining about the open pockets.. but I see them as a plus (you can stash snacks or whatever you might need quick access to when you're hiking, and then stow it away in a zip pocket for the downhill). The color (slate, I think?) seemed a bit more purple in person than on the website.. but most people I asked said they looked gray, so maybe it's just me. The ONLY reason I'm giving them 4 stars is because of the fit - if they fit you perfectly, these are a 5 star pant. And you gotta love the price!

    Good kit!

      Paid $65.99 at steepandcheap.com, and for the price these are exceptional pants! I'd go 5-star but the irregular stitching work along a thigh seam and the lack of front pocket zippers precluded that even at this price point. Great materials and design. I have a 36" waist and a 32" inseam, bought the Large. No complaints. The fit seemed distinctly odd at first, but by the end of day 1 (a jaunt up to Mailbox Peak in the Issaquah Alps), they felt like they'd been custom tailored. These are very warm *and* very breathable. Water resistance not yet tested.

      Seem great to me.

        I just used these for two days of powder skiing with temps around 20 F. They worked great. I also use Patagonia simple guide pants. The Stoics protect from wind better, and are more water resistant. The pocket were not a problem at all for me. They also fit fine. I have mediums and I am 5'7" around 165 lbs. Waist is normal 32-33, inseam in jeans is 31".

        Warm and durable

          These are great when I am plowing snow in my bobcat. Super warm and durable construction, mostly wear them at work on sub freezing days. Way more comfortable then carharts or some coveralls. Fit over my work boots with out any issues, have not tried wearing my snowboard boots under them, I could see them being a little tight for that. I am 6'5", 215, got an XL and they fit great. Have not warn them boarding, and I could see open pockets being an issue with that. I love them, and I have two pair.

          Great for winter biking

            I got these for my dad - he says they stop the wind and water pretty well when he is biking to and from work. He tried wearing them when the temperature was down in the teens and said they still kept him warm, even without another layer.

            LOOKS LIKE A WINNER

              SO FAR SO GOOD. WEAR THEM FOR MOUNTAIN BIKING AND LONG HIKES IN SUB FREEZING TEMPS.,NO L.J'S. THEY FIT CLOSE AROUND MY BOOTS,A GOOD THING,DON'T HAVE TO BE CONCERENED ABOUT HOOKING A CRAMPON WHEN NOT WEARING GAITORS. I WEAR A 32" INSEAM, XL'S LENGTH JUST RIGHT. HAVE'NT GOT RAINED ON YET, WE'LL SEE.

              Great Pant

                5'11, 160 pounds and bought the medium. Have used this pant for 5 days of touring in the tetons and 1 day of ice climbing. I have found these pants to be very comfortable and supply a great range of movement. Some others have complained about the lack of zippers on the hip pockets, NO BIG DEAL!, just don't put stuff there. Did keep a pair of thin gloves in the pockets and they never came out. Had no issues with snow going there either. AS far at the button clasp over the boot, no issues there. The pants held up well to wet conditions of ice climbing and powder skiing in the pass. Picture coming later.

                Great Pant

                Amazing pants

                  The fit is awesome, I'm 6'2" and 220lbs size 36 and the large are like a glove. They are defiantly for taller people. I have used them for XC skiing, touring, and winter camping/backpacking. They are very waterproof in snow(haven't used them in rain yet) and windproof. They breath very well. I could see if you were falling in deep powder snow could get in the pockets but thats the only negative. If your taller than 6' get them!

                      Favorite new pants for cold weather

                        These pants are awesome. Got 'em off SAC and couldn't be happier. I got the Excaliber/Deep and in person they appear to be a little darker with a hint of purple to them ( I think it has to do with different lighting). But I like them anyway

                        The microfleece interior makes them so soft! The outside material has some nice stretch to them but are still tough. The pants also have a more athletic fit making them perfect for people who are always on the move.

                        I'm 6' 1" and 158lbs and I got the medium.

                        Happy Pants

                          when I wear these pants, my body (knees, and crotch) notice how comfortable they are. There is no pulling or pressure when climbing. the gusseted crotch combined with the stretch makes for a happy hang time in a harness. I tried them yesterday without my wool longies underneath, and stayed warm. I am looking to buy another pair.

                          Agree- sizing was perfect for me

                            I just wanted to second nic's review about the sizing. I am 6'0" 160lb with ~32 sizing and the medium fits well. I had been concerned about some of the reviews indicating funky stoic sizing, but these are great. The pockets may not zip, but for mountaineering and winter hiking they seem very good. Better than any of the previous pants I have used in terms of weight/warmth/breathability balance. I like them quite a lot and they are my main snow pant now. Maybe the small is smaller than most are used to, but the medium feels right on.

                            I'm an odd combination of a 32" waist and a 33" inseam and I generally like my pants to be longer. Should I go with a large?

                            I have a 33" waist with 26" legs and a squatter's butt. Pants are usually a rough purchase for me. Am I better off upsizing to an L and cinching up the waist-space or are the legs wide enough?

                            I hope I'm not just dense but I can not find a stoic size chart anywhere and its really annoying. Its not even on stoics website. Please help.

                            will they keep me warm?

                            will they keep me warm?

                            the tour pant is good thick material. i used in March on haute route, and used every day, and they were great - but that is a lot of touring, skinning, and climbing, and then some skiing. if inbounds skiing on cold days, a layer inside is good, or a ski pant over is good.

                            Their size chart is wrong here. I just got a small in the mail, and I have a 30 inch waist. Every pair of pants I've bought in the past four years have had a 30 waist. I couldn't even get these to button. And trust me, I haven't gained weight, and all I was wearing underneath was a pair of boxers.

                            What is up with the limited size runs....seems the demand is there for these so why not make a decent number of pairs instead of selling out before the ski season even begins to rip?

                            Is it me or are these the touring version of the BC.com overhangs? Does that mean that they are Polartec Powershield? If so then I'm on board now, 'cause Powershield is second to none and I like having the calf zips as a feature!

                            similar design and cut to the overhang, but a better fabric than the powershield. the overhang powershield it lighter weight and good for spring summer fall. this tour pant uses a heavy stretch woven material, great for fall winter spring. And as you described a key new feature of zipped cuff, and keprotec ski guard.

                            Is the water resistance is due to DWR or a membrane? I'm suspicious of anything that doesn't have a waterproof rating on it, because "water resistant" generally doesn't mean much.

                            How does softshell material really repel water? Check out this article from one of our past Backcountry.com newsletters:
                            http://www.backcountry.com/store/dc/650/Backcountry-Softshell-Jacket-Buyers-Guide.html?cmp_id=EM_SAL1150a3&mv_pc=r105

                            The softshell used in the Tour Pant falls under the "stretch-woven" category in the article above.

                            The softshell material we used in the Tour pant is on the very high-end of softshell water repellency when compared to the wide range represented in the outdoor apparel world--i'm speaking from actual experience. I'd take Tour as my only pant for a week-long hut-to-hut tour despite weather conditions--nasty or bluebird, these pants will suffice. I'd wear the Tour for most tours in the Wasatch no matter how nasty the weather, and the same goes for inbounds days. The softshell material isn't optimal for a rainy day at Whislter, or a Cascade-cement day at Baker(they'll saturate and get heavy if you're sitting still on the lift in steady precipitation for long periods), but they'll fend off moisture in sub-40's temps just about as well as a hardshell--especially if you're moving a lot.

                            And if I could double-capatalize the 'D' in DWR for the Tour Pant I would, because the water-repellent treatment is SO DURABLE.

                            - around here we call that "Cascade Cement" :)
                            I have the Overhang and I can attest to what Jwhitehouse said. I climbed Shuksan this summer (literally attached to Baker ski area mentioned above) and my friends had the H/H Odin Guide pants and the Mountain Hardware Navigation Pant (I think...they change names frequently). I had crappier pants and a true shell. The weather turned on us into a traditional North Cascades suckfest and the only time I was better off then them was when it was squalling. The rest of the time in cold light rain and mist they were fine, and got to carry and worry about one less thing. Experience inspired me to buy the Overhang, and although I haven't had the chance to test them for days on end like that, they have held up to light Cascades precip just fine so far, and that's the "summer" weight version.

                            I am a snowboarder and it is sometimes difficult to find pants that fit over snowboard boots. Will these stretch to accommodate a size 12 snowboard boot? I would buy the Mediums...

                            Since there's still no sizing chart... let's say that theoretically someone had a 33 waist and maybe a 33 inseam. Would either the medium or a large be considered the right proportions for this person?

                            The pants looks great though, how do you think they will do for alpine road biking?
                            They look similar-ly made, to the cutter knickers. from the stitching,zips,buttons pockets and material. Which would be great because those knickers are some of the best there are.
