John E.wrote a review of Mammut Nordwand Pro HS Pant - Men's on March 28, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
These pants were used mountaineering in Patagonia for 40 days and were a regular pick when heading out backcountry skiing. I loved them everyday I wore them. Over time they began to show their flaws. The extremely lightweight material can not withstand repeated abuse. A $600 dollar pant should be able to withstand expedition use. The first problem came when the stitching on the built in gaiter began to come undone and detach itself from the pant. Then a large rip developed in the back thigh of the pant. I chalk these problems up to the material being too lightweight and not strong enough. Other than the issue of strength the pants are awesome. Just do not buy these if you plan to give them heavy use. Because they will break sooner than you expected and you will be disappointed....like me....
