Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I purchased these pants about two years ago. They've held up since then with a TON of wear! They're perfect for both ice climbing, backcountry and resort skiing. They're juuusstt the right about of insulated. I love how you can adjust the bottom of the pants depending on the type of activity you're doing.
Two definite cons: One, there's no vents! Come on now! Two, the fit is so weird. I'm normally an XS or S, and I ended up needing to buy a Medium and a belt to make these fit right. The waist is huge and the legs are tight. I have a typical athletic figure - small waist and big thighs -- and these don't really flatter that shape. The pants were so great I didn't mind - but I'm learning having an extra step in taking off your pants (the belt) when you have to pee really bad is just not OK. Plus it's bulky and unflattering. Gotta look cute on the slopes, you know?
