Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large
Wow, major fail from Black Diamond on these pants. These don't fit like previous versions of these pants, and have two serious design flaws that make these a terrible choice for a climbing/hiking pant.
First, the web belt is only sewn into the front half of the pants, which means there's a huge lack of ability to really cinch these pants down - as a result, if you've bought them for layering and aren't layering over a voluminous other layer, beware they only cinch down about an inch, so you may well have a whole lot of excess space you can't get rid of. BD should have just put belt loops with a full around belt instead.
Secondly, the legs and leg openings are huge, so expect massive drafts if you're wearing them over double boots or insulated hikers, when not wearing gaiters. Really dumb design. I'd imagine even wearing these with ski boots you'd still have drafts. These are like freakin' clown pants.
