Positive Reviews:

most water resistant softshell pants i have owned. typical arcteryx durability - as bomber as you can get with a softshell. fit is perfect - not baggy and no excess fabric, but not super tight either.
love the kevlar crampon instep patch. really dig the suspenders - they obviate the need for a belt - (hate having to wear belts - especially if I have to wear climbing harness over it - whole setup becomes so bulky), and they keep pants where they should be - on my hips.
fit is on the slim side. I have 32'' waist and 30'' inseam and, suprisingly, I needed a size SMALL, SHORT. that's kinda par for the course for arcteryx - all thier stuff seems to run on the slim side and long

I absolutely love these pants, so much so that I just picked up a second pair (smaller size, lost a bunch of weight). I've got dozens of days in them, and the only damage is a tiny, easily repaired hole where I crashed straight into a small, sharp branch. I've used them on stormy winter ridgelines with a light baselayer, hot spring 14ers without, ordinary run of the mill touring, and for about two weeks straight while climbing in Alaska last summer (including while sleeping).
They breathe like crazy, stretch and move with you well, the ankle patches fend off ski edges and crampon points, the cargo pockets can be over-stuffed without affecting comfort, they come with suspenders, and are available in not-black. They're perfect.

I really love these pants. They fit great. They are not tight in the thighs like the Patagonia soft shell pants have been. The exterior has good dwr coating to resist water and they dry really quick. The suspenders are comfortable but also easily removable. I prefer wearing mine with a web belt instead. My favorite thing about these pants outside of performing amazing, is that the interior of the pant is soft and comfortable if you prefer to only wear boxers or briefs beneath. Comfortable to be in all day wether on the mountain, or on a long drive home.
Other have mentioned this pant is a bit warmer, I didn't think so. Works perfect for me in the Cascades.

These pants definitely rock. Super wind resistant and so comfortable I cannot stand it. Wore them all day in 10 degrees with just a pair of 15 year old worn out fleece pants as a layer and plent warm. These pants fit like a glove and let you move in comfort. My wife has them too in calamata color and she just got back from 2 days in VT single digits with just a patagonia capilene 3 layer and she was toasty as well - and believe me that is saying something - for under $200 you cannot beat these for comfort, performance and style (rawhide!!!).

I've had these pants for a few weeks and have 10 backcountry days on them and 1 resort day -- these are an excellent blend of breathability, toughness and stretch.
+ Nice lightweight internal gaiters
+ hip pockets are unobtrusive and large
+ Easily-removable suspenders, and a great webbing belt keep you from sagging.
- I could not find these in a short length -- the inseam is insanely long for a small. I had them shortened, which solved the problem.
- These fit much larger than typical -- I am usually a medium and had to buy these in a small.

I've used these pants both for resort skiing on both mild and cold days (with a base layer) and for ski touring (most recently, the Haute Route in April, without the base layer). Very breathable pants; I never felt clammy in these even skinning uphill all day in the sun. The lack of side zips didn't both me. The lower front pockets on the legs are perfect for storing glove liners or a handkerchief. Excellent choice for both inbounds and out.

When the sun is shinning and the temp is up you can't beat this pant. Breathes well and makes skinning and hiking easy as pie. I have been caught in some snow at the resort and still no issues but my thighs did start to wet out a bit on the lift rides. Great pant especially if you are active in the snow.

Really nice fit and good construction, just too minimalist for what I was seeking. Bought them as s ski pant, but they are really an ice climbing or warm day backcountry pant. Returned in favor of something burlier.

Negative Reviews:

I've read lots of good reviews for Arc'teryx gear so I was stoked these shell pants were on sale and got was a big let down when I actually got them....they are really just a thin shell pant and don't have much to them...for the money you can buy several other manuf's pants that offer more for skiing. The fit was okay and the pants look good, but for almost $200.00, ON SALE, you should look elsewhere, unless you really just have to provide free advertising for the brand.

Neutral Reviews:

These pants were very comfortable, I loved the suspenders, and I liked the khaki color, but for skinning they were too hot. Climbing in these pants felt clammy, similar to what I remember from wearing goretex pants while skinning. I run warm and need something more breathable than these pants.
