William Swansonwrote a review of Outdoor Research Blackpowder Pant - Men's on February 4, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
First, the fit. I'm 5'8 145ish. 30" waist. The small fits perfectly, very similar to a pair of 30x30 carhartts, only slightly wider cuffs that accommodate a ski boot well.
The main body is very sturdy and feels about as tough as the cuff protectors on another pair of ski pants I have. The cuffs on these blackpowders is next-level burl, cordura-type.
Knee articulations are in the right place. There are pockets for pads.
Speaking of pockets, these have four. Two zipped front, one zipped thigh, one zipped back and an interior avy beacon pocket-inside-a-pocket inside the right front. Enough space for me.
Vents are large and work well.
Overall this is a substantial pant meant for people that use gear daily and hard. Just what I was looking for.
