The side-zips allow you to ditch excess heat on the skin up, and the articulated knees provide unrestricted movement so you can make the most out of your hard-earned turns on the way back down.

I'm 5'11", 155lbs, 32 waist and the Medium fit great, if not slightly big and baggy. Bought the OR suspenders from OR.com cuz I like to use those when skiing, and they would sag a bit without them. I don't use these pants as rain pants when hiking/backpacking because they are too bulky and warm, but they work great as snow pants. You would think that paclite would be too thin for a ski pant, but they are actually quite bombproof and hold up great to falls and scrapes on ice, ski poles, etc. They feel much thicker and abrasion proof than my marmot paclite jacket. I really like the full-zips on the side, easy on and off and can use them as vents. The cinch cord on the bottom is great for wearing with snow boots, and the zip-out gaiters are great (but they are mesh, so when skiing in powder, some snow does get it, but not enough to matter). I haven't worn them enough to speak about the wear and tear on the seat from getting on and off the chairlift, but they seem sturdy enough to hold up to it and its goretex pro on that part as well. Overall great product, love OR and backcountry
I'm 5'10" and about 160 lbs. and bought these in a medium, and I have to say they fit fairly well for a hard shell designed to go over multiple layers. However, if you decide to wear only a light base layer underneath them, pick up a pair of the suspenders while you're here. The built-in belt only tightens to a point, and Outdoor Research, for whatever reason, manufactures their garments too big for the respective size. They need to reconfigure their sizing chart.
These are some of my favorite pants. Hardshell, very thin and light, very waterproof, and very functional. My only problem with these pants is that the waist is too big, the belt thing doesn't adjust skinny enough for me, so they are pretty much slightly falling down all day, especially with the backpack pressing on there. Most all pants fit me like this because I am super skinny, so this is a normal thing for me. still a great buy love these pants.
I've used these pants for a few days backcountry skiing now and I've been very impressed. They're a great cut so fit well and are very comfortable. The full length zips provide plenty of ventilation. Otherwise they're no nonsense pants that do exactly what they should - keep the snow and wind out.
I gave them 4 stars only because of the (lack of) color choices. Not only is black boring but you really feel it when the sun hits them
I'm on my second season with these bad boys and I love 'em. As a ski patroller and back-country enthusiast, they've kept me dry in the most wicked of conditions. The fit allows maximum mobility and the side zips work great for ventilation while climbing. They're also very lightweight and packable for spring ascents.
Make sure you get the suspenders though. The waist belt isn't very effective.
Awesome pants, used them skiing, ice-climbing, hiking. Light-weight, well reinforced against crampons and ski-edges, full-length zips on the legs, powder skirts in the ankles. Never been cold in them, never got wet, and never felt restricted. If you're playing in deep powder bib / salopette type pants might suit you better or have a long jacket over the top.
With Gore breathability and waterproofness, this pant is packable yet durable enough for full on mountaineering conditions. I use them when space is an issue but need a rugged pant for unexpected conditions. They accompany me on backcountry ski days as well as adventure touring on my motorcycle. The fit is excellent for my "thicker" thighs & physique.
6'1", 200lbs and the size LARGE are still a little loose around the waist. Spent hours breaking trail and climbing in these in heavy wet snow and I pop out dry every time.
My only complaint is the single pocket.
I have skied and mountaineered here in Alaska the last two years with these pants when I need a hardshell. They work great, durable, comfortable and keep me dry... Great Pant, jacket is awesome too!!
These pants are comfortable and look great, but the durability is poor. I've ripped them twice and the second time is clearly a design flaw. They ripped 10 inches down the right leg from the zipper seam when I leaped across a creek. The stitching is a single thin row and the fabric just ripped away.
Come on these aren't pajamas, they need to withstand a little seam stress! Maybe the OR designers are expecting you to only wear them posing in a Seattle coffee shop.
I like everything about these pants - the fit is great and they seem bombproof. My problem is that when I wear them with a pack, the hip belt pushes my skin down on top of where the side zipper is on the pants. It rubs there all day and when I get home the sides of my waist are chafed raw and painful.
This may not be a problem if you are skinny in the waist (I'm not quite there yet). I'm going to get bibs for climbing and save these pants for resort skiing when I don't have to carry a pack.
