Clark J.wrote a review of Outdoor Research Ferrosi Pant - Men's on February 28, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I have been on the market for softshell pants that rival my wife's ISIS sofshells crafted with Schoeller fabric bonded to fleece, with Keprotec and Cordura cuffs. They are comfortable in a broad range of temperatures, stretchy, durable and breathable, and apparently don't exist for men. These pants don't even come close. They are very lightweight, so lightweight, I was going to return them as they felt cheap. However, I decided to give them a try based on the reviews, and wore them with a mid-weight base layer and gaitors on a 9 mile summit of Saddleback and The Horn, and am amazed at the breathability and the flexibility of the fabric. No need for venting despite a strenuous climb. And they are windproof and very water resistant. We encountered very deep, though dry snow, and these pants kept me dry all day. I also used them for skiing at Sugarloaf on several warm days, again, with mid-weight base layer, and they were very comfortable, even on the lift and at the summit.
They are a trim fit, and the cuffs are slender, but they move so well, I liked the trim fit, especially when we were bushwhacking. I don't think they will resist a lot of moisture (wet snow, or more than a brief shower), but they breath so well, are so wind resistant, and dry quickly, they really are a pretty versatile pant. And because they are so light, they roll up and pack small. So they've redeemed themselves.
