RATING AND REVIEWS

Amazing for winter fieldwork

5

Best pant for winter hiking/cold weather activity. I wear my cirque pants every day in the field during the winter. I can comfortably wear 1-2 long underwear layers underneath, or not (I use the adjustable waist feature). I recommend these pants to anyone recreating in cold temps, I've worn them in minus 30 to 60 deg F weather comfortably. These pants have served me just as well in on cold powdery days and warmer spring slushy/post-holing days. The only thing that might make these pants better would be side leg vents, but I would continue to purchase again and again w/ out the addition.

Perfect Mountaineering Ice Climbing Pants

5

I got these pants to climb the mountaineers route and Mt Whitney without having a chance to use them before. They were perfect for every temperature change, hiking, ice climbing. I'd been looking for a pant like this and could find one, this was finally it.

Super sick, just what I was looking for

Bought size small according to the Fit Chart, unfortunately they were far too big for me (I am 5 ft. 120 lbs). I wore them a ton regardless, then gave them to my sister who is taller than me - not only do they look like they fit perfectly, she loves these pants. Blocks out elements, perfect with a base for anything from hiking to downhill skiing.

My favorite (and only) cold-weather pants

5

For the past five years of climbing snow, glaciers, ice, skiing inbounds and backcountry, these pants are the only ones I've used. I love them because they are stretchy, not too insulating, and they usually keep my legs dry.

Versatile and Comfy

Great windbreak pant that moves with you and is comfy. My spouse and I both have them and they are both flattering and functional. Perfect for layering on cold days but work equally well on he slopes!

Absolutely

Now I know why everyone raves about these pants! I've worn them twice hiking in the snow and they are the perfect tool for the job. I stayed warm and comfortable all day. I'm 5'4", 120 lbs, and the size Small fit great. I thought they were going to be way too long when I first put them on, but when I used the built in gaiter, that extra length covered the whole top of my boot. The built in gaiter did an amazing job of keeping snow out of my boots.

Great pants for snowshoeing + winter backpacking

I am 5'3, 150 lbs and bought a size Medium. I used these pants for a 4 day Colorado winter backpacking and snowshoeing trip. They were awesome! I love the elastic waistband that allowed me to open up when I had more layers on underneath and still be comfortable. I didn't bring a waterproof pant for the trip and just used these as my outer layer and they held up very well in the snow. Just a quick brush and the snow would fall off without soaking in. While there are gaiters in the pants, I opted for a waterproof gaiter during our hikes. I did enjoy the extra durability around the hem while walking around camp though. The pockets are awesome too. While I did rate this product as semi bulky, it wasn't an issue for me because I wore them the entire trip!

High-quality pants and great in terms of function. I ended up returning because they were just too long.

Love these pants

I am on a volunteer search and rescue team as well as mom on the ski slopes with kids and around town in bad weather, these pants keep up. They keep me extremely dry but stretch so that they are comfortable to wear and flattering around town. Our use these on SAR trainings and rescues when our uniform pants can't perform. I layer baselayer underneath And the adjustable waist band makes it comfortable no matter what layer I have time. They are cut a little bit longer as they have a front loop and work as a gator. The zipper at the bottom of the pant allows me to open them up and slide them over my ski boots. These are amazing soft shell pants!

Hi there I'm stuck between a medium and large. I have a 30 inch waist and 40 hips. I'm hiking Kilimanjaro and need a comfy pair but I don't want them to big. Any suggestions:)

Becky

as the cirque pants have a adjustable waist band to synch down for a good fit, I would recommend the size large, as this will also allow for some base layers underneath if needed.

Hi there! Interested in a pair of rain pants but want to make sure I order the right size. The size chart only gives information about measurements for numbered sizes (I.e. 2, 4, 6), but the pants I want to purchase are sized with letter (XS, S, M). How do those sizes correlate? Thanks!,

Abbie

Sorry for the confusion here, Abbie! I'd go by the "Women's Apparel" size guide on this page: https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/en/size-and-fit
