I've worn these pants for about 35 days now and I am extremely happy with my purchase. In the past I have owned a lot of "slim fit" style of pants because I don't like overly baggy pants. The Freerider pant wasn't necessarily slim but they definitely weren't baggy and I really like the overall fit. As an aggressive skier it was imperative for me to get a pant that wouldn't get torn up by my ski edges and so far these have held up very well, a few scuffs of course but no rips. The Goretex has kept me dry and I've stayed warm using a variety of different baselayer's depending on the temperatures, I am always able to easily dump heat with the the side zips if needed. One of the biggest reasons I decided to go with the Freerider pant over other similar pants, was all of the pockets. I love the placement and design of the cargo/thigh pockets. From pocketing random items when I leave the house in the morning to carrying extra neck gaiter, cliff bar, chapstick and glove liners, the pockets have been very useful to me! If the Marmot La Meije pant was available in my size I probaby would've have gone with that, just because of the removable bib, but the La Meije pant had one less pocket. I imagine that these pants will last me a long time but I will definitely be looking to Marmot when I get my next pair of ski pants.
