Great for Lounging or hiking

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 10"

Wanted a second set of soft shell for hiking, lounging, groceries and brewery visits. The hidden gator boot hooks are a sweet surprise. Kept me dry while sitting on snow and ice. So far so good.

Good performance, DWR not great

The fit and function of the swifts is great. Well designed & made. material and fabric are quality, but the the new DWR BD were boasting about is not as good as contemporary, conventional DWR.

Great Pant, durability in question

First off - this is a great looking pant that does a good job at repelling water. I've used it once during a mountaineering introductory course. It's water repellency is excellent, however, after only about 10 mins of self arrest practice, the knees and seat area fabric and already started to pile. Other than that, they are great pants.

The everything hiking/climbing shell pant

These pants are tough as hell. Whether you’re biking, hiking, caving, or climbing the ergonomics are excellent. A little large in the waist? No problem, built in bet to cinch it up. Scrambling over rocks in the heat of the Grand Canyon or Sedona? They breathe. Backpacking in below freezing temps? No problem, they breathe and have lace clips to keep out the snow— and they’re essentially waterproof too. Caving and crawling around on rocks? No problem. Excellent mobility and durability. The zippers are well-placed, too. I just ordered a second pair, I love these things.

Almost love these pants

I'm 6'3" with a 34" waist and 34" inseam, and the large fits perfectly. The construction is solid, I expect them to last a while. These pants are comfortable and not too loose, but I wouldn't call it a slim fit. I love the integrated belt, snap cuff and lace hook. My only gripe, albeit minor, is the depth of the pockets seems a bit shallow. My Iphone sticks out of the back pocket. Overall, I recommend these pants and will be ordering another pair.

BD is absolutely killing it these days

Couldn't ask for more. Waterproof yet breathable. Tough yet stretchy. No swishy noises. Great pockets. Athletic cut. I use them for everything -- summer ski mountaineering, winter touring, ice climbing, winter running. They're 1/2 the weight of my old touring pants. I don't even take them off when I get home. I used to find Black Diamond stuff kind of "budgety" like Outdoor Research or REI brand, like it could be a LITTLE better... but not anymore. Their new stuff competes with any high end European brand that costs 3x as much.

Nice overall go-to softshell pants

These pants are great for frequent use hiking or nordic skiing. The size medium actually fit pretty well (I'm 5'7", 160 lbs), considering a lot of outdoor gear companies' size M's are kind of big on me. Not sure how well these pants are in the rain, as I've only been out in the sun so far.

Great cold weather hiking pants!

I am 6.2” and slim so the medium fits perfect. The hook on the bottoms of each leg that attaches to your shoe laces are a great feature. Lightweight, breathable and highly water resistant, works great with wool Base layer for temps below freezing.
