* ✏️ Quick thoughts to supplement my video demonstration.
I do quite a bit of mountaineering (just guided a trip up Mt Rainier last month), and I am very particular about the clothes I wear. For cold weather mountaineering (In the PNW, that would be late Sept through early May), I would definitely wear there pants.
I would also recommend using these pants for skiing, especially if you’re out all day in dry, cold powder.
I would not suggest using these as a shell (they’re not designed to be fully water proof, like a Gortex shell). So if you’re expecting a ton of rain, go with some waterproof pants.
The breathability is fantastic, and the fabric is slightly stretchy so it makes walking very easy.
The fleece line is very soft, warm and doesn’t itch at all. I really like the reinforced areas that get hit with the most snow. I also like the slim fit (compared to the saggy-type hiking pants). The slim fit keeps the leg cuff away from my crampons when I walk.
If you’re curious I got XXXL and I’m fairly skinny (6’1″ and 170lbs. Size 32 waist.). It fits beautifully.
Hope this helps!
📍 Bottom line: would I recommend this product to one of my friends?
👍 Yes, absolutely.
