I'm using these pants and the Helium II OR jacket to knock off New York's Adirondack's highest 46 peaks in the fall. It's wet, trails are really muddy and many of the peaks don't have a sanctioned trail, only a herd path. The herd paths requires one to walk thru close brush and small trees and the pants work great and are more durable than I thought they would be. Very happy with how light they are and how well they work.
