Thomas B.wrote a review of Outdoor Research Cirque Softshell Pant - Men's on May 11, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
I'm 5'9" and about 183lbs and I wear a medium. I have 33" waist and I am pushing the boundaries of wearing a medium but they do stretch after a little use. As others have mentioned the front pockets are a little small but it doesn't bother me because all I use them for are small snacks or my car keys. The pockets are warm if your hands fit in them though. I am guessing but I don't think OR designed the pockets to be used as alternates to gloves. The hook on the front of the cuff of the pants works well in light snow but extended use in deep snow will eventually let snow into your boots. I recommend using gaiters if you will be plodding through a lot of snow. I attached a video of a recent trip where I was wearing these pants. I paired them with a pair of OR sequence tights and I never got too hot when climbing or too cold when taking breaks. The temps hovered around 32F with lots of sun.
