SKOLwrote a review of Arc'teryx Spotter Pant - Men's on October 8, 2011
Okay, so initially my review was "what's the big deal?" I'm coming off that a little bit. While I will never call khaki's "bomber," these pants are akin to a workhorse. I've been wearing them for four days straight on a surf vacation this fall. They get progressively more comfortable with every day. While I do not think these are good climbing pants (not flexible enough), they have been great on pre-dawn, chilly mornings as I drive out to check out the local breaks. They're also fairly durable. i've worn them working around the house, fixing dings in my surfboards, and just knocking around.
Overall, they're similar to a quality pair of utility pants, although a bit more comfortable (the fleecy waist lining is a nice touch. I still don't know if they're worth 100 bucks, but since they were a gift, I'm not complaining.
