- Near Perfection (Review by Ryan)
I have three pairs, and have used them over the course of a year. They have been trekking in Bhutan, climbing 14'ers in Colorado, as well as survived 130+F temps in southern Iraq. They still look brand new, wear extremely well, and were well suited for all these environments.
My only complains are the slightly tight crotch and the difficulty of finding them In Stock at OR. Otherwise...perfect.

- Great pants - if you carry a purse (Review by funNactive)
I almost love these pants. They would be 5 Stars if they had good pockets. I am 5'6" 140 lbs. athletic build. These pants fit great; not too tight, not too loose. - The only problem that diminishes their versatility are the pockets. They are way too small - a Samsung Galaxy S3/S4 will not fit comfortably in them.
If you intend to only use them for your outdoor athletic pursuits when you have a pack with you, they are great. But they have a casual look to them that that would make them versatile enough for around town wear if the pockets were deeper.
The material is light weight & durable - great for hot weather or when it is cooling down & you need to block wind or light precipitation.

- Wearing them more and more (Review by Jacob)
These are the kind of technical pants that are so comfortable I find myself wearing them more and more to places that would probably be more suited to dress jeans or slacks here in Europe. They are great for hiking and climbing, and while I think they look like technical pants, my wife likes how they look and says that she thinks they're OK to wear out around town. Which is fortunate, because I've been doing just that a lot these days. Breathable, stretchy, athletic cut. My only change would be some sort of drawstring or better yet a simple lateral waste-tightening system because, while the fit is better on the second pair that I bought (I needed a 32 instead of a 34, and it was worth it to get a second pair) sometimes wearing a belt with a backpack or a harness isn't very comfortable and it would be nice to be able to cinch them down a little for some activities. The Ferrosi pants haven't shown any signs of abrasion or snagging after taking them climbing 8 times and hiking countless times, and they've washed well.

- Incredible (Review by Tim)
Love these pants! I work outdoors and the ferrosi pants are extremely comfortable - never bind or bunch up.

- 3 season go to pants (Review by Michael)
I wore these for the better part of a year traveling by bus and train and climbing everything mostly granite and limestone. When living abroad you spend a lot of time in hot cramped buses or trains with extended hiking/hitch hiking(see riding in the back of bongo trucks) from bus and train stations to climbing destinations. I personally loved these pants because of how well they breath and the comfortable fit making them perfect for three season wear, they block wind well and shed light rain with ease. If you do manage to soak them through they dry with in the hour. The low profile waist fits great under a harness or the waist belt of your pack and the ankle cinch straps are a great finishing touch for climbers who want to keep their pants off their heels while tied into the sharp end. After a year of use they are showing some fuzziness on the knees and other high wear areas but that's to be expected of any light weight material when beaten against granite repeatedly.

- Great climbing pants (Review by adkeditor)
I just returned from a road trip in which I climbed at five locales in four states. I wore my Ferrosi pants on every climb, and they held up great. They're so lightweight and stretchy that you hardly notice them. They also can take a beating. I abraded my knees a few times, but the pants did not tear. Added bonus: the blood washed right out.
