- The Best (Review by Outdoor Pro)
I won't go anywhere without these, no matter what season. Rain or Snow these are the jam. I'm not sure if I can say much against this piece of gear but they are excellent in snow and that cold weather, keeping you worm and they are great during a heavy rain storm, keeping you dry. There is the full zip down the legs if you get to hot when the clouds are looming before the storm. Did I mention they are TOUGH! I think a descriptive word could be Bulletproof!( please don't attempt to withstand gunfire**)
If there was one piece of advice on design it would be to put a metal clasp on the bottom of the gator to hook to your boots! But if the wearers are smart enough they can figure a way around that!
Keep it up! love the Gear! Wear OR Everyday!

- Great backcountry shell! (Review by catmn5)
I use these for winter hiking in the White Mountains of NH. Perfect for this, with hem to hip zip. This allows you to put them off or on without removing crampons, snowshoes, etc. and provides for outstanding ventilation The built in, removable gaiters are great for light snow hiking. In heavy snow conditions, I remove them and use my Crocodile gaiters for absolute snow-proofing and warmth. I use the optional suspenders and they work perfectly! No more riding down during the day. Only one hand pocket, but that's no big deal for me. Bullet-proof protection once they're all zipped up and the fit is generous enough for a puffy layer beneath, as needed. Top quality, as usual, from OR!

- Excellent! (Review by Ryan)
This shell is tough and well designed. They roll up nicely and fit into a side pocket on my pack when not needed. The full zip side allows you to don them without having to remove your boots or pants. This is of great benefit when the temp drops! Great breathability for how tough and durable they are. I also love the cut of these pants. The articulated knee provides great movement with little to no binding.
