    My go to hiking, backpacking/alpine pant

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large Short
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    I have been wearing this style of Arc'Teryx pants since the early 2000's and currently own two pairs of the current version being made. I am stocky and wear the Large/Short size, which is a godsend as hemming technical pants is very expensive. I believe that these were made from Scholler fabric back in the day, which I feel performed better in terms of weather resistance and durability than the current fabric. However, the current version is damn good. They cut just enough wind, but breathe well when you are building up heat. Adding a light baselayer underneath them bumps the temperature range down a notch or two. I would not recommend them for skiing, have used them a lot ice and winter rock climbing, and I would disagree with folks here who say the fit is too tight. I have huge thighs for my size and I never feel constrained by them. I wish that Arc'Teryx would bring the pockets a bit up to date to accommodate modern smart phones, but love the new belt and closure system at the waist.

    Very Comfortable, recommend

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    These pants are not light, yet not heavy. The fit is not slim but not baggy. The material is good quality, stretchy, and has retained its color.
    These pants are simple but perfect. If you dont like too tight or too loose these are a great option. If you want a tighter, slimmer fit then get the Sigma.

    Overall: A great, extremely comfortable pant for daily use or long days outside.

    Colors: Triton is very blue; Mongoose is a dusty color, not olive. The others are pretty basic.

    Second Pair

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M/S
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    I've had these in heavy rotation since 2012. Back squats and IPAs have since brought me up a size, but the fit and performance is still the same one these pants over the years. I think of these as the perfect so cal alpine pant for our 10-11k peaks along with eastern sierra access. The best cool weather hikers with mobility and durability for class 3/4 action. These have been with my on every major fall/spring 10k'+ summit that I've bagged over the years. Pricey, yes, but def a bang for the buck. Don't sleep!

    Excellent pants for your adventures

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large/Tall
    • Height: 6'5"
    • Weight: 225lbs

    These pants are a terrific blend of durability and light weight, yielding a fantastic all-around pant for your outdoor adventures. The fit is excellent for me, although some may find them a bit slim. The length is fantastic for my height (6'5", long legs), and the Large size fits my waist flawlessly (225lbs.). The material feel is extremely comfortable and sheds water well. The built-in belt is a great approach to an adjustable, but still low-profile waistband that works great with the belt on your backpack. Buy and enjoy - they're fantastic.

    Stitching came apart day 1

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    Fell apart after one use. Backcountry only offered store credit but ran out of my size for all arcteryx pants. Arcteryx corporate was not much better, they asked me to send the item back and I MAY get it back in 6 weeks which is after the winter hiking season. Not happy!

    Great, versatile pants

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 220lbs

    Love these pants. In just the last 7 days I've worn them backpacking in mid 60 degrees sunny Canyonlands desert and snowshoeing in 30 degree heavy snow in Little Cottonwood. Light weight but sturdy material. DWR puts up a good fight - I've worn them in off and on drizzle all day in the Uintas and they kept me plenty dry. Kneeling in the snow to adjust snow shoes didn't result in wet knees. And when they do wet through, like where my jacket drips on to my pants or the thighs, they dry out within a few minutes after precipitation stops. Not a substitute for a true waterproof pant, to be sure, but good enough that I now leave my rain pants at home unless significant rain is in the forecast. Thin and provide no insulation, but they keep the wind at bay. Finally, the cut is great. Athletic and roomy enough for my dino quads without being baggy (I'm 6' 220 and the XL fits me great). As I already mentioned, I'll use these for everything from backpacking and hiking in cool to moderate temps, snowshoeing and backcountry skiing in good conditions, and everything in between.

    A Classy/Rugged pant

      Arcteryx

      I used these pants for a wide range of events. Classy restaurant birthday celebration for my son's 13th, rappelling down the ravine in my backyard, playing rough stuff with my Rottweiler, fishing from the canoe on Kootenay Lake BC, and even just watching tv. I will kick it up a notch this winter and take these pants powder skiing at Whitewater Mountain Resort in Nelson BC. You name it, Arcteryx goes EVERYWHERE i take her with no complaints.

      Slim Athletic Hiking Pants

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      This brand makes quality products. Their sizing is tailored for more of a slim-athletic build which seems universal for all their clothing lines. These pants are no different. The legs are a straight slim fit with no tapering in the ankles. They do have a larger waist size. I'm 5'11" 150 lbs with a 30in waist. I purchased the small but the waist on the small is at least a 31-32in. They do have a built in buckle to help alleviate the larger size waist. The elastic belt is perfect. It's easy to hook and unhook even in the dark. It's easy to tighten and loosen as well. The ankles can be cinched while the length of the size Small is near a 31. The thin soft shell material feels nice against the skin. It is very water repellent. I dumped a glass of water to test the DWR and the water completely beaded off. In a heavy long downpour the water will definitely seep through, but a nice pair to wear in light rain. The material is also very wind resistant considering how light it feels. Great stretch too. The side pockets have zippers that aren't noisy, but the leg zipper can be a little noisy at times. The side pockets can fit my iPhone 6s no problem. If you are looking for a pair of slim hiking pants with a built in belt, then definitely give these a try.

      Swishy Pants

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size

      Very good pants, fit is great even for a bigger guy. Slight stretch to the material. These are light pants, perfect for a spring hike or early fall outdoors activity. Would not wear if the temp is below 40 degrees. Personally wish I would have gotten the AR version, because these are so light weight. However, they are built with very good quality construction and materials. No back pocket. Only major con I can think of is that the pants make a fairly pronounced swishing sound when walking.

      Good softshell pants to get the job done

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL Tall
      • Height: 6'1"
      • Weight: 200lbs

      Fit:
      These pants fit just as expected and very consistently with other arcteryx garments. I purchased an XL tall because I like a baggy fit. XL normal would work great if you have similar "dimensions" as me but don't like baggy clothes.

      Function:
      These pants do exactly what they should. They keep me warm and dry when I bike or disc golf in the fall. I would not recommend them for a downpour or moist snow. If you wear softshell in a downpour, you're gonna have a bad time. They are much heavier than I expected them to be. They are more like snowpants than expected. I hiked isle royale in them which is chillier, I would not recommend for a warmer climate.

      The look:
      These pants get the job done, there is nothing special about their look. I own 3 arcteryx jackets, a wind breaker, and 3 pairs of their pants; their jackets are so colorful and flashy but their pants are so boring. Add some color to the legs!!!

      The price:
      Worth it. They will last forever. If they don't, they have a lifetime warranty.

      Summary:
      If I think the environment will be harsh and likely to get me very wet I pull these out of the closet. If the chance of getting wet is lower I grab my norronas. They look better and have color!

      4 stars because I need my colors!

      Typical 5 stars for arc

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium/tall
      • Height: 6'4"
      • Weight: 195lbs

      At 6'4 195 I bought a medium tall and have 32 waist. Tailored fit, fabulous for any activity or lazy pursuit-sheds medium to light rain-would recommend!

      Perfect

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 6'3"
      • Weight: 200lbs

      I bought these for snowshoeing. They work perfect. Looked around a long time trying to find the perfect pants and found them here. I am 6'4' and had trouble finding 34 inseam.

      Wore snowshoeing in 15 degree temps with a base layer and was fine. Wind proof as described. There is an elastic cuff that can be tightened, they were long enough to tighten around my boot and not wear gators!!

      I liked the fit, plenty of space in the legs for a base layer but not baggy.

      Waist 34-36 and large worked perfectly.

      Great pants for cool windy conditions

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size

      A lot of reviews for these pants, most has probably been said.



      The fabric is very nice. It has a soft, silk-like feel to it, with quite a sheen. I got mine in Anvil Grey. Their wind resistance makes them great for windy and a little cool conditions. Not cold without a base layer, as there is no insulation here. The pants are great for the conditions they were designed for. Depending on where you live that may a bit constrained.



      Fit is good, the integrated belt makes the pants stay in place. Note that there are no back pockets.



      One very small design flaw for me is the direction of the zipper on the leg pocket. When closed the zipper is towards the inner of your leg. This makes my hand sweep across it every now and then and after a while I find my leg pocket being half unzipped. This is a very, very minor point, but the Norrona pants have the zipper go in the opposite direction.



      Note that the care instructions says not to tumble dry and hang dry instead. When these are soaked it takes a while to dry them out.

      Great pants for Fall, Winter, and Spring

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      I ordered these pants to serve in mixed conditions, something to stand up on windy, snowy, long days.



      I was expecting these to be similar to the Gamma LT Jacket, but they aren't really the same. The fabric is a lot thinner. The LT Jacket has sort of a plush inside. The pants are single layer, and more slippery and stretchy. The pants would be too warm for my in summer conditions (50 deg+), but by themselves they are fine for hiking in 30-50 degrees. Below that I wear a baselayer, or even Montbell UL Down Pants. Overall, these have turned out to be exactly what a softshell should be - extremely versatile.



      The pants are extremely sleek and high performance. I am 6'2" and I got the medium-tall. The waist is perfect. There is an integrated webbing belt that works very well and never comes undone until you want it to. There are two zippered hand pockets that are lined with mesh for breathability. There is a side zippered pocket on the right thigh that is also lined with mesh. There are no back pockets. The crotch is gusseted, increasing the flexibility of these pants. I have had no problem pulling off any move in the climbing gym or outside with these pants. The bottom cuff has an easy to use draw cord if you encounter more snowy conditions.



      I have not used them in rain, but I've used them in very deep powder. The slick fabic sheds snow easily -- snow will NOT stick to it at all, which means I never got wet after hours of hiking in deep snow and crashing into powder while backcountry sledding (backcountry sledding is serious business).



      Pros:

      - Very flexible and thus very comfortable

      - Fits me great

      - Slick fabic sheds snow very easily

      - Breathable enough for Fall/Winter/Spring

      - Extremely versatile.



      Cons:

      - I would not use these in very warm conditions if I was moving a lot, even though they are pretty thin. In black, they are very warm in the sun.

      Magical Fabric

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      I don't know what wizardry was used at Arc'teryx to develop these pants, but they are amazing. The fabric is super lightweight, flexible, and soft. All the makings of a delicate piece of clothing. However, these pants are tough. I did a couple hikes through some less-travelled trails which meant that I was frequently getting various Texas scrub-foliage rubbing against my legs as I pushed through. Sometimes a branch would be sharp enough to scratch my leg and cause an abrasion under my pants, but the pants looked like nothing happened.



      They breathe well without being breezy, and do well in somewhat windy conditions. In cooler weather I might consider a long baselayer, but I have yet to need it.
