These pant's have all the right features a touring pant should have. The bib is high enough to keep snow out, but not too high that you overheat. Speaking of overheating, these pants have HUGE side vents that allow a ton of air flow, and the fly/front zip also doubles as a vent, so it's super easy to dump heat on the way up. There are also two large thigh pockets that are great for carrying snacks, cell phone, pass, etc, and a two smaller bib pockets that fit most beacons. Last, thing I love about these pants is the thin suspender straps that fit perfect under backpack straps. In my opinion Arcteryx really crushed it with the design of this pant and I would highly recommend them to anyone who spends a lot of time in the backcountry.
