Warm and very comfortable. I even did some climbing in them and they breathe fairly well when you unzip the side zips. If you want something warm that is functional around camp and beyond this is the way to go, love these! Wouldnt wear these as an outer shell climbing your crampons or even the ice will shred the material, its not meant to be durable or worn as a stand alone piece unless your just sitting in camp.
These pants are awesome! They are extremely warm and comfortable. Their packability is on the upper end of decent but it is worth the extra space in my book. The reinforcement on the knees and ass of the pants are a nice feature compared to similar pants. The only down side to these pants, besides the price, is that the material can tear fairly simply.
I used these pants for 30 days of winter camping in AK and I'm very impressed. They are light weight and very packable. It's nice to roll into camp and easily throw them on over ski boots and pants and get warm right away. No worries about getting them wet with the synthetic insulation. A perfect expedition partner.
I plan to use them for winter outdoor activities. My primary reason was to use them for flying during winter and now I see several uses of these pants.Best thing is you can put and take them off very easily(side zippers).They have adjustable waist velcro tabs. These pants look really cool and happy with purchase
These are a great pant. Nice for sitting around camp at night as well as great to sleep in. Wore them with just boxers under them in sub 30 degree weather and was perfectly comfortable. The more durable material in the seat and knees is really nice as well.
I returned this product because the drawstring was essentially useless in tightening therefore I couldn't get the pants to keep from falling down. Also, one of the reasons I bought these was for walking the dog on cold Minnesota nights. The material was so thin and cheap that the dog could have easily ripped through when she jumped on me, as she gets excited for her walks. Overall I'm disappointed with the design and the quality of materials.
