Going into my second season of hard use with these pants. I bought my normal size, and I think I could have downsized by a size. Breathable, great articulation, durable, comfortable, surprisingly water resistant. It's my go-to pant for all my PNW alpine trips. Works great for rock climbing- the softshell material is durable and can handle the abuse. I find it the perfect thickness to block wind and trap enough heat so I don't get cold. Works great for snow and glacier travel. It's starting to see a bit of wear, but that just means that you're getting after it.
