Why We Built The Backcountry Wolverine Cirque Insulated Pant

Some days we just need tights under our shells, but when temperatures at the resort drop we rock the Backcountry Wolverine Cirque Insulated Pant under our snow pants. These warm layering pants boast Primaloft Gold insulation that traps heat while releasing moisture, full-length 2-way zippers on each leg allow us to control or personal climate as temperatures fluctuate, and a 3/4 length that sits just above our ski or snowboard boot for coverage and comfort. While all of this boosts our comfort on hill, we really love that the nylon and fleece combination offers an apres-ready look that lets us go straight from pow turns to the evening festivities.

Weird fit

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:

I got these for an insulation layer underneath shell pants for skiing. The short length is good, it does not interfere with the ski boots. The insulation was good for the moderately cold conditions I was in. The fit is weird though, they are baggy around the thighs. Like jodphurs. This didn't matter for my intended use, since I wear them under shell pants. The waist is a little stretchy, but there is no drawstring due to the complications of the design which has full length zippers on each side. There is stitching that looks like a fly, but it is not functional. These would be better if there was a functional fly, and they would be perfect if also the fit was more "normal".

Love these Insulated Pants

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

I live in the Upper Midwest and we nomally have some frigid temps. Used these both Nordic Skiing and Ice Climbing. They are fantastic. Didn't over heat or freeze after sweaty exertions. Well made with great features.

Perfect all condition baselayer

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 8"

I've been riding the Wolverine Cirque Insulated Pants for a few weeks now and they are officially my favorite base-layer ever! They keep me warm on cold days and, best of all, don't get too hot when I'm charging hard. The only thing that could make these better would be drawstrings or some form of adjustable waist. Overall super comfortable and very functional!

No Drawstring?!

Size Bought:
5' 10"

Received these pants the other day in preparation for ski season to wear under my bibs on cold days. The quality and fit seems appropriate, though there is no drawstring (or beltloops) to tighten the pant. If you're not the exact size of the pants, there will be some sliding or riding of the waist up or down as you move. It seems crazy to not have built in belt loops or a tie draw string, those little details matter!

Fit is weird, quality is top notch

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
6' 3"

I'm returning these because of some exceedingly common fit issues I have with Backcountry clothing lately. I ordered according to my waist measurement in the size chart and it felt accurate to me after trying them on. I immediately noticed the main issue with the fit on these when crouched, sat down, and walked up some stairs. The pants basically pull the back side of themselves down any time I moved around. I'm 6'3" (192 cm) 180 lbs (82kg) with a 33" (84 cm) waist and ordered a size Medium. Being a cyclist I'd consider my lower body to be fairly muscular, but I wouldn't really consider my legs/butt to be body builder huge. I felt like the length on these when standing straight was perfect with them falling just below the knee, but maybe it would be worth trying a size up when I return these at the warehouse. TLDR: If you order based on the size chart and have even a slightly above average butt (not flat), these will probably pull themselves down every time you move. Other than that, made from quality materials and bummed they don't work for me. I'll try to update this review if sizing up works out. I hope this can help some people out with figuring out sizing and maybe Backcountry can make some improvements to these in the next iteration.

Excellent Layering Solution on Cold Days

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
6' 2"

I've used these for two full seasons, and love em. I will layer these between a baselayer and some shell pants when conditions get nasty. They've got side zippers for dumping heat, but they're still very warm, so these are a no-go for touring or warmer days. 3/4 length means they sit just above boot cuff very nicely. I have a 32ish inch waist and a medium is a perfect fit with a baselayer underneath. They do fit slim, so if you've got large thighs, size up.

Good not Great - No Drawstring???

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 8"

Other reviews mention this on last year model and it is true: There is no drawstring for the waistband. I now have to cut the band and insert my own ends to tie the pants to keep them from falling down. This is a ridiculous design. Other than that, the pants are insulated and well designed.
