    Medium is 44" long

    As others have said, the only drawback is how long they are. I wear size 32x30 pants and these are a solid 5" longer. I'm 5'9" for reference. So if you're around 6'2" with a 32 waist, these should be perfect for you. Any shorter and they will bunch up below the knee. I really wish we had an inseam option, I'd be willing to pay extra for it Aside from that, these pants are perfect for winter hiking. I went snowshoeing up a mountain in Maine, the temperature when I began was below zero. All I had on was lightweight synthetic long johns and I was fine while moving. Not even remotely cold.

    Good fit, a bit long inseam

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

    Really liked the fit of the pants. I just wish there's also the option to have a shorter inseam. Wore this pants on a weekend ice climbing and I really liked how it fits. With the 33in inseam, the pants basically looked pretty bunched up on my lower legs even when wearing boots. Also liked the waist tabs that really lets you dial-in the fit.

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

    After hearing mixed reviews about the first model of Cirque's I was excited to try out the Cirque II's. I think these are my favorite mountaineering, ice climbing, and ski touring pant that I have owned thus far. The pant is a little high waisted which works well when wearing a harness. The reinforced inner ankles helps deter crampon cuts and being roughed up by ski boot buckles. The pants a very flexible and shed moisture better than I expected. I only wear a thin pair of long underwear underneath these pants when I am out ice climbing and they block out enough wind and cold to keep me nice and warm. These pants are slim fit for sure, but don't bother me with how much they stretch. If you don't like a fitted pant, I would recommend the OR Trailbreaker.

    Thanks for the great review Zach! Really appreciate the insight on the performance of these pants.

    Too long!

    Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    Fit:Runs large

    These are pretty nice pants. Bought them for winter mountain hiking in the Adirondacks. Unfortunately I will be returning as they are just too long. I bought a size large and am 5'10" 195lbs. Fit great in the waiste though.


    Is this Cirque II or the previous version? From the available colors, they seem to be the new version. Can you please confirm? Thanks.

    They are indeed the Cirque II pants. sorry for the confusion, I will get this updated ASAP
