Great pants for mountaineering


I use these regularly for mountaineering in the Sierras. They are durable and stretchy, and fit slim in the seat for use with a harness. Some may find the slim seat and thighs a bit too tight, but they stretch just fine, and have no extra material to get in the way.

Absolutely would buy another pair of these!!!


I bought these for extended backpacking trips. They seem very tight at first but stretch out a little bit, I originally bought the 38" waist thinking they would be sized small. I'm a 35x32 normally and the 38's were way too big. The 36x32 fit pretty well. I feel the legs are a little too long, but they might be designed like that to imitate gators??? But overall they are very tough and I love them!

Great scree pants for touring about winter lands


I really like the stretch fit. The main front pockets could be deeper and I wish there was a left leg pocket. I like that its suspender compatible, I would like the lower portion of the pant that has a zipper to have a button closure as I find it opens up if i have the bungee too tight. I have really enjoyed them over this season and look forward to future outings!

Great 21st century Swedish army wool pants!


I got these pants as it is getting difficult to find the good ole Swedish army pants with the built in boot gaiters. These have a very smart and easy lace cleat and drawstring to cinch the hem down around a wide array of boots, and they may be just about as warm as wool pants without the bulk. Only two small gripes are the small, shallow pockets, and other OR pants (Trailbreaker) have a spot for a kneepad, which I love.

Great Shell


Great product as always, just the size feels a little smaller then it should, especially with the elastic/adjustable waist band. Purchased a medium and I'm usually between a small/medium, and almost feels very snug for a true medium fit.



Absolutely love them.


I am loving this pair of pants for warm winter activities. I've used them for skiing on some sunny days and they have been absolutely killer on groomers. I'm heading out to Solitude/Brighton in a few weeks here, and I'm excited to see how they stand up to some deep snow and whether they're repellent enough for powder!

Amazing pants


These pants are extremely tough and great for climbing


My husband loves these pants. He likes the waist band.


Water resistant and durable

A miss


Feels a little too Euro for me, tight on though and buttocks, narrow on one with flaring leg bottoms and a fairly high rise waist. They could have added in a bit of thigh space. I feel like best fit for the large is a taller skinnier man but I suspect ye would also get the unasthetic bell bottom affect with ski boots on. I'm 6ft 185.

I am 6'4" with a 32" waist and 34-36" inseam, will large be too baggy in the waist?


The size large would be a bit baggy in the waist, but you can use the velcro side tabs to synch it down as needed, the issue is your inseam as the cirques all listed as a 33" inseam which might be to short for your needs unless you are wearing ski or mountaineering boots.


Hi, what are specs for XXL size?


Hi Steven, A size XXL has a 42" waist, a 50" low hip measurement, and an inseam of 35". Thank for contacting OR,


I can't tell from your sizing whether I take a medium or small in this alpine pants. I want them for snow shoeing, light mountain climbling(18000 and below), tough, light weight, warm, but with good ventilation if exertion climbing, resistant to crampon cuts, flexible, and water and wind resistant. Any recommendations are welcome- please. These pants are for a male who is 5'7 and 150 lbs and has short legs with an inseam of 29 inches and waist of 32.


Hi Gary, A size Small has a waist measurement of 30" and increases 3" for each additional size up. The inseam measurement for a size Small is 31 and increases 1" for each additional size up. Based on your waist measurement we would recommend a size Medium. The pants have adjustable tabs at the waist or you may use a belt if the pants if there is too much room in the waist. If you needed an insulated version of this pant, consider the Alpenice Pants. Thanks for contacting OR,


What is the waist size of size small?


Hi Victor, The waist size is 30" for a Small, and increases 3" for each additional size up. Thanks for contacting OR,


How should these pants be washed/cleaned? Do they have a DWR coating that needs to be refreshed every now and then?


Hi Caleb, Sorry for the late response. The Cirque pants do have a DWR coating that needs to be refreshed occasionally. We recommend either using a small amount of non-detergent soap (or technical wash), and following up with an extra rinse cycle and a low heat tumble dry cycle. We recommend using Nikwax Tech Wash and Softshell Proof, they sell it as a pack (Softshell DuoPack). Thanks for contacting OR, Paul

On the website, sizes are listed as S, M, L, XL. However, the Size and Fit Guide at the bottom of the page lists measurements in inches or centimeters. If I have a 36" waist and a 32" inseam, which size would you recommend I order?

Bob Labrie

Hi Bob, I would go with the Large. A size Large has a 36" waist and a 33" inseam measurement. If you needed more room to accommodate layering, a size XL has a 39" waist and 34" inseam. Thanks for contacting OR, Paul

I'm a 33" waist, 30" inseam. Should I buy a large?


You're on the lower end of size Large, but you can use the velcro tabs on the sides to adjust the waist to fit.
