Mountain Hardwear Compressor Pant -
“Oh yah, das Mountain Hardwear Compressor Pants are uber warm! Sometimes I must use zee leg zip to cool mine biscuits,” says young Franz. And that Austrian lad is not kidding -- Mountain Hardwear’s Thermal Q insulation mimics the structure of goose down to retain heat more efficiently than any other synthetic on the market. It also rebounds well after being compressed, when combined with a 20D nylon rip exterior and tough Nutshell Taslan panels, make the Compressor one long lasting pair of liederhosen. Basically what you are looking at is a wearable space heater that can be crammed in your luggage on long flights to the Alps and still be ready to rock when you arrive.

Great pant for the taller Cro Magnon shaped man and even good for the ever so stout Neanderthal and less evolved shorter mono browed dudes out there.. I am shaped like a brick. I think I have been called "Built like a brick shithouse" by more than a few. Imagine trying to find a pant to fit Fred Flintstone... Yeah, it kinda sucks. But these actually fit well and I can get them over climbing pants. The mediums still give me puffy butt but not nearly as bad as the large did. There is quite a big size difference between the two in the waist, butt and legs.
Just an FYI.. The new ones don't come with a stuff sack either, maybe that was last years thing and the description hasn't changed?

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.

So far,so good!

Great for backpacking! I tend too run hot, and don't wear many layers gettring too my destination, but when I'm there and settled I'll put these on under my shell and they work great. comfortable too sleep in and add a great value of insulation when snow camping/mountaineering. I have five more mountain lake in my area too camp at this winter all around 12,000 ft and these pants will be with me on every trip.

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.

Noah Howell at on 01/10/2012

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.

Very warm

Pretty nice pants. They seem to be a "relaxed" cut pant in order to go over long johns and maybe softshells. There is plenty of room inside the pants and in the length. Normally I take a large in pants and these leave me plenty of room.

Negative Reviews:

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.
