Not going to lie, I thought this was going to be my weakest link in my kit. Just returned from 7 days on kodiak,island of beating these pants to death. They held up amazingly well considering how thin and light they are. All the alders and devils club didn't put a dent in them. Unfortunately, I broke a trekking pole on the way down and ended up driving the broken end into my leg and through these pants. Quick patch, and they're good to go.

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.

Not Durable Whatsoever

This is a great lightweight pant, but I would not recommend them to anyone traveling in the backcountry. They snag and tear on just about anything. Each trip I have taken into the Sierra Nevada Backcountry has resulted in 1-3 small tears from brush on the trail. After a few trips the pants are no longer useful as waterproof. Would only recommend for casual use.

Great contingency pants!

Fantastic product. These live in my pack during all non-winter months, and in winter, live in my car for emergencies. Crazy light and small. I'm 6'5" 200# and the XLs work well. If you're looking for something to beat up or plan to wear really often, these may not be as durable as you'd like, but for Colorado weather patterns, they're perfect. I also have the Foray pants, which I use at work (Park Ranger) simply because they're more durable and I tend to beat up gear while at work. I highly recommend these though to anyone who wants ultra-light water/windproof pants.

These pants are mint

I use the Helium set for a blow out bag in my work rig. They are ultra light, reliable, and pack down easily into a small pack. There is no excuse not to carry these pants (and top). The water proofing is equal to goretex, breathability is better then goretex, and so far they have taken several hard hits bushwacking through the woods and have held up fine.

I was wondering what size I should get. I wear 34" waist/ 32" length. I would probably wear hiking pants underneath. Thanks

Tim

I would go with size L.
