    Climb on, foul-weather friend.

    For most folks, the onslaught of cold weather means an immediate retreat to the safety of the great indoors. But the cold doesn't scare you off, mostly in part because you finally have the opportunity to wear the Black Diamond Men's Stance Belay Synthetic Down Pant as you stand idle-ish on belay.

    With 80g PrimaLoft Synergy insulating your buns, you're able to belay your buddy in total warmth, even if the pant gets wet. A Pertex shell encapsulates this furnace-like fervor with surprising durability considering how lightweight this pant is. Not to mention, Black Diamond coated the shell with DWR to ensure you stay some semblance of dry as you climb up those icy walls.

    Additionally, the Stance features full-length side zippers that help you take off and put on this pant even while wearing crampons and that can help with ventilation when you need it. An elastic gripper softly seals out any snow from sliding into your alpine boot, and the snap closure helps you lay the cuffs over the boot. Black Diamond reinforced the cuffs with kickpatches for long-lasting durability send after send. And an adjustable belt gives you an ideal fit regardless of how many layers you have on.

    • A warm pant for mega cold-weather climbing
    • Pertex exterior is lightweight and tough

    • PrimaLoft insulation curbs the cold even when wet
    • Full-length zippers assure easy-on, easy-off

    Great Product

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

    Perfect belay/ cold weather camping pant. Super warm, nice athletic fit. They won't be sagging off your butt like some gangster pants! The outer material is quite thin so I wouldn't try them in a downhill skiing setting, but for low speed activities with little chance of abrasion they are great. The full length side zips are my favorite feature.

    Run short and small

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    These would be great pants, but they have some very glaring faults that I can't get past and thus can't recommend them.

    First, they run very short per waist size and small in the hips. I bought these as midweight winter pants for walking my dog and found them too snug with just a midweight long underwear layer on below them, albeit they are warm. Second, though they have some elastic on the cuffs of the legs, the openings are still too large, so if you're not looking to wear them with voluminously-large boots (like ski or giant pac boots), you'll find them very drafty, even with double-mounatineering boots...let alone wearing these with a hiking boot or insulated hiking boots.

    This is a pretty big oversight on BD's part, because they should snug down tighter and stretch or adjust to accommodate larger boots, rather than be too big to begin with. This is an issue with every insulated pant I've tried in the last few years, with manufacturers seemingly inclined to make them fit for ski and snowboard use, which is weird given these pants are meant for climbers.

    That said, they have a lot of great features, like the snap behind the full-side zip on each leg, to hold them together as you take them off/put them on over boots, the belt and zipper/two-snaps combo on the waist and fly, and the zip exterior right thigh pocket, along with a trim fit that would be good for climbing, but still enough space inside the pant for layering - outside the too snug hip area that is.

    Great for skiing or belaying

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large

    These pants are an outstanding layer for super cold resort days. I got Mediums for belaying on cold days in the shade, but the powder has been so good these last few days that I have only skied with them so far and I am super pleased with their warmth. They are functional and easy to move in, so I am sure they will treat me well for belaying as well. The color is true to the photos, but they do run a little big.
    Great product at the right price.

    Excellent at making people envious

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    • Size Bought: Medium

    Had these on Mt Baker and many were super envious of my warmth. They fit well over layers (they are larger than usual to accommodate putting them over layers for warmth) and were plenty warm. Crampon patches help keep punctures from happening and the full zips aid in getting them on and off. They are light and compressible and don't take up a lot of room in the pack for the amount of warmth they will bring. Definitely a great addition. Keep in mind, if you are buying them to use as the sole outer layer or underneath a hard shell, I would probably size down. They are designed to quickly put over layers you may already have on - I put them on over my 3 layer goretex hard shell.

    Little baggy

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs large

    I got these for my husband and here is what he had to say "These pants are great for mountaineering. I am size 29 waist and 30inseam and i got a size Small. The fit is a little big but fit perfectly with some layering. they move with your body well and are very lite weight, great for long days of hiking in the snow. The only thing I wash was different is that they have a lack of pockets.... "
