The Exposure 2 PRO Light Pant combines reinforced fabric with a waterproof-protective GORE-TEX PRO membrane to defend against rock faces, ice patches, and damp weather.

I like them!

The pants fit well and the material is good quality. I had to buy a size small because the medium fit weird. My other shells are all size medium. Anyway, these fit perfectly. I like them a lot so far. Worn them in the backcountry and at the resort. No complaints.

Wide through the legs, tight at the waist/hips

As with all MH women's pants, these are tight in the hip/waist and large in the legs. I'm 5'5, 120 lbs, wear an XS, and don't consider myself to have skinny legs but am swimming in the width of these pant legs. They held up well in a windy, alpine skimo expedition in terms of warmth & waterproofing, and were comfortable to walk/skin/ski in. The vents were helpful when it got warmer later in the day.

Medium Tall FTW

I have these in the dark blue and put a ton of resort days on them this year (in addition to wearing them curling!). I'm 5'9" 148lbs, all legs and need M/Tall especially with ski boots on. The waist adjustment is great to accommodate for the booty to small waist ratio, pockets are roomy and well placed, the gaiters are roomy enough but tight fitting to cover your boots, and the waterproofing does the job even in wet Sierra storms. Mostly posting this to encourage MHW to continue to make a variety of high performance pants in multiple lengths and several colors. It's incredible how hard it is to find anything but black in a Tall.

Pro light pant

Fit generous and very long in the leg. It is too bad you do not offer the petite length in Canada.

Love these!

Love these pants! They are really high quality and fit well. I am always nervous about buying pants from outdoor brands since I have a curvy/athletic body type, but despite my hesitations these are great! I opted for a small and they just barely fit over my hips/butt. For reference I have thicker thighs, 26" waist and 39" hips, and I am 5'7". The small is really comfortable once they are on, but if you are going to layer a lot underneath I may recommend getting a medium. A huge plus of these pants if they make your butt look good, haha. This is definitely not a priority while skiing, but a nice bonus. I haven't put a ton of wear on them yet, but I am confident that they will take a beating and stay in great shape.

Best Gortex Pro Pants

I am 5'3" and it is very difficult to find a pair of solid, Gortex Pro pants that don't drag on the ground and get frayed, dirty, etc., so I am super happy to have Mountain Hardwear offer different inseam lengths!! And, wow, the pants perform. I am out in the mountain snow and weather 2-4 hours a day, snowshoeing, walking, skiing and use all of the features; huge front pockets, fantastic quad vents, and zippers that are burly and work smoothly. Plus, I think this newer Gortex Pro breathes better than the previous iterations. I am 132#, 5'3" and purchased a size medium, short: fit is trim in the waist and not too baggy in the leg, but can easily high step up steeps. Best heavy duty pants ever.

Perfect upholding pant

I bought these for uphilling. I have the Boundary line insulated pant for lift service, but needed something lighter for uphilling. Went on a warm day, so I used the vents. Temperature regulation was easy. Love the short inseam - these pants actually fit! Great pant. Highly recommend.
