They’re warm enough to tromp through a whiteout, but inner and outer thigh venting blow out all the hot air and moisture on long uphill grinds. …  I tested these guys in a wide range of conditions — from bluebird days at Squaw Valley to whiteout “I shouldn’t have made the drive” conditions on Mount Shasta — and the pants were ideal in every situation.
