willhuck4foodwrote a review of Patagonia Simple Guide Softshell Pant - Men's on May 18, 2011
I use these pants in all winter skiing conditions (I live in CO so it is dry than say the PNW) and alpine climbing. It is pretty amazing how breathable and comfortable these pants are. I would have liked the pockets to be larger to accomodate a notebook (since these are "guide pants") but this was not distracting. These pants don't fit quite as slim as some other patagonia stuff, but it sure ain't baggy. If you plan to use these for skiing, I would recommend buying the patagonia version of these that have reinforcements around the ankle. My skis are starting to cut my pants, but in light of these pants other amazing qualities, it is not distracting. This is an incredible pant for the price.
