Well, I feel sorry for my friends, because each one I run into has to listen to me gush about these for at least ten minutes. My first Norraa purchase, super impressed. Lets sum up, these are loose for easy movement but not at all baggy, the cuffs are fitted enough that you don't have to worry about walking on them (even while wearing tennies) yet wide enough to easy fit over my snowboard boots. The super gnarly cuff guard material goes full round the bottom of the cuff for added confidence. As others have mentioned, the rest of the fabric feels tough without being overly heavy, the pockets are perfect, not too big, not at all small, and the right one has an internal elastic pocket for a beacon (though sadly no attachment point for the tether. The bibs are not as tight as the OR vanguard version I tried before this (which felt like a corset). Only two things would make this pants better, thin knee and butt pads (what can I say, I'm a snowboarder), and vents with mesh,rather than the almost full side zips that these have.
That said, after searching for the perfect pants forever, these are by far the closest I've found.
