You don't have to take furious winter weather sitting down, you can fight back with the Outdoor Research Men's Furio Pants. Designed and built to put the smack down on burly big mountain weather, the Furios have a hybrid-mapped construction to make them bombproof in prone-to-wear areas, breathable where you need it, and packable for your convenience.
The bulk of the Furio is composed of a two-layer Gore-Tex shell with Paclite technology to keep them waterproof, breathable, and packable. Meanwhile, the seat and knees are reinforced with a three-layer Gore-Tex shell with C-Knit technology, so those areas that tend to see more contact with snow stay nice and dry. The scuff guards are a nylon, Kevlar blend that won't piece out after a season's worth of wear from boots, edges, snow, and ice. To keep the pants comfortable, the Furios have a gusseted crotch, articulated knees, and an integrated belt that is adjustable, so you can dial in the perfect fit to accommodate any extra layers.

- Q & A
pretty bomber, sizing weird
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: small
in general, I'm a huge OR fan of the last few years owning products like their iceline, foray, ferrosi pants and ferrosi, diode, deviator uppers (and I'm not even including the baselayers). I took these pants to Denali where I think burlier hardshells were more of a necessity than other climbing ventures when softshells will generally do the job. These pants did the job and the weight is an indicator of the burly GTX. Blocks the wind and sheds snow no problem. I'm only giving this 4 stars since the waist sizing is not the same as compared to other OR products I have. I'm a small person by American standards, but have been lucky enough that pretty much ordering a Small is perfect. The length was fine with a slight boot cut, and the internal gaiters work just fine over G2SM. I wore these over icelines, but the waist was too small for me to even close the front crotch zip. The plastic waist buckle was sufficient in keeping the pants up under a harness, but even after alot of weight loss on the mountain, these pants were really uncomfortable to button at the waist, plus it's easier to leave the fly open and button undone for getting the other business while all roped up.
TL:DR; bomber goretex, a bit heavier, waist sizing is on the way smaller size
Work great just not tear resistant
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Used for hiking and camping in the snow ~20 degrees Fahrenheit, blocks all wind and snow great.
Made the mistake of wearing them on a winter climb. Slowly slid down some scree while coming down a mostly snow covered mountain and they tore to shreds. The Outdoor Research Ferrosi hiking pants underneath didn't have a scratch on them.
Outdoor Research stands by their warranty!
How does the sizing in these compare to your ski pants, like the Trailbreakers? Are they as roomy at the leg opening, for fitting around big snowboard boots? And, are they more roomy in the thigh, so they can be thrown on over a pair of softshell pants on-the-go? Thanks.
Yes and Yes! The Furio will fit around snowboard boots and the thigh is wider than the Trailbreaker Pants, allowing for layering underneath.
Hope that helped!
Is it possible to get these pants in a 30 inch inseam as a short version for the Large waist size (34 inch). On the OR site they have a short option with a 30 inch inseam on their sizing guide?
Hey Jonathan, I am sorry, but we do not make inseams in this pant, at least for now. The factory minimums for us to do so are enormous, and the volume isn's there to justify it. My apologies!
Are these the updated version that has the new fit and face fabric for Winter 2015-2016 shown on OR's website? The picture shown here appears to still be the version from LY with the pocket that is vertical instead of horizontal.
Hey there, Leta here with OR. These SHOULD be the new ones. Are their any GearHeads that can verify?
