5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 190 lbs
Size Purchased: Large Short

I have been wearing this style of Arc'Teryx pants since the early 2000's and currently own two pairs of the current version being made. I am stocky and wear the Large/Short size, which is a godsend as hemming technical pants is very expensive. I believe that these were made from Scholler fabric back in the day, which I feel performed better in terms of weather resistance and durability than the current fabric. However, the current version is damn good. They cut just enough wind, but breathe well when you are building up heat. Adding a light baselayer underneath them bumps the temperature range down a notch or two. I would not recommend them for skiing, have used them a lot ice and winter rock climbing, and I would disagree with folks here who say the fit is too tight. I have huge thighs for my size and I never feel constrained by them. I wish that Arc'Teryx would bring the pockets a bit up to date to accommodate modern smart phones, but love the new belt and closure system at the waist.
