- Fall-to-Spring All-Around Winner (Review by alpinerodeo)
These pants are exactly what I need—one water-proof pant to rule them all! Wet-weather hiking, mountaineering, skiing/snowboarding; I live in these things from fall until spring. I don’t like having warm legs, so I prefer just a shell vs. ski pants and then opt to layer underneath if it’s particularly cold The side zips are high enough to pull them on over hiking, mountaineering and ski boots and the cuffs actually fit over my boots. The pocket on the thigh is great for stashing a bar and doubles as a stuff sack for the pants with the awesome OR hanging hoop inside. You may not win major style points, but they’re super functional and the price point is great. I’m 5’3” and 135 lbs with muscular thighs and a size S fits great.
