Outdoor Research Deviator Wind Pant

The Deviator Wind Pant moves with our body when we're on the run while regulating our temperature with Outdoor Research's ActiveTemp Treatment, which wicks moisture and dries quickly to keep us comfortable during high-output pursuits in cool weather.

Brilliant product and design

Predominantly a cold weather running pant, though I have used it for nordic skiing as well. I find the pant performs exactly as I hoped, meaning that I can run in above freezing temperatures without overheating, but don't freeze at -10C. Excellent fit, trim but not tight, great freedom of movement.

Tight in the crotch and thighs

In my proper size, the waist and length are perfect. However as another review mentioned, these are tight in the crotch. Since I need these for ultra trail running, I need to be comfortable so this will not do. I will size up and try that, but I fear the waist will be too baggy and the pants will fall when I run - especially because there is no drawstring in the waist. Perhaps these will work for people with a very lean build, but for someone with a slight muscular build in the thighs I find these way to tight in the crotch.

Great winter running pants!

Very pleased. I'm shorter/stockier (5'5"/170lbs) and the medium was great for me (32" waist), although they fit a bit snugger than shown in the taller model on the website. VERY warm pants. I would have liked regular pockets as well, but the two side leg pockets work great for phone/keys. Great for shoveling snow or running and everything in-between!

Wind blocking

Hey they actually keep the wind/cold air out and have moderate breathability. Works as advertised. Elastic band fits me well although there is no draw string.

Impressive Pant, fit slightly off

Overall, they are a great pant. The material is awesome and they look very nice. I'm 6' and 168# and the M fit well. That said, the fit is slightly off in the crotch area. It's not terrible but it does distract from earning the 5th star.

Great Wind Pant

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 11"

These pants are awesome. I got them for winter running as I needed something to offer mild warmth but really cut wind. They do both exceedingly well. The insulation in the key areas keeps warm while still retaining optimal breathability. They are not waterproof, but they're not meant to be as breathability is the key here. I really like the tapered/athletic fit and they stay in place very well. The only drawback is the lack of a drawstring. It would make someone in between sizes have a difficult time getting them to work. However, the waist is elastic and has so far worked well enough. The insulation in the key areas keeps warm while still retaining optimal breathability.

Best cool weather running leggings

I use these leggings for running in cool to cold temperatures, and they do great with sweat management. The pocket is in a much better spot than the previous version so that they can be used to hold a phone or energy bar with minimal bouncing. They also do well in PNW wet weather, keeping my legs warm even when soaked through with rain.
