Great! I have 2 pairs now!


I love the Cirque Pants! I use them for backcountry touring and cross country skiing. They are comfortable, warm, and stretchy. I'm 5'4" 140 lbs and got my usual medium size in OR pants. They don't drag too bad, and fit great over boots. I love them! I probably will get more, even though I have 2, they're that nice!



Best ski touring and cold weather hiking pants!!


I've worn these pants a few times now and have nothing bad to say!! They have worked wonderfully as uphill ski pants being that they are warm but still breathable. The fit is great and I love the built in gator loop. I usually wear a 4 or 6 in most brands at 155lbs 5'9" - I got a medium and they fit well. The material is also burly and seems like it will hold up well to shenanigans. My boyfriend and I both own these pants and they have become our go-to for cold weather activities.



New Winter Hiking Pants!


I love these pants! I'm 5'4, 130 lbs and the size small fit me well. The legs are a tad long but don't drag the ground so long as I'm wearing shoes of any sort. I took these on a backpacking trip at the end of October. The weather was still a bit too warm (mid 50s) for the cirque pants but they breathed well so I remained comfortable. Definitely recommend these to anyone looking for flexible yet durable pants!

If only


I could be an Outdoor Research model with all the great clothing I wear manufactered by them, BUT I am pettite sized and this company misses out on a potential consumer market because they don't carry a pettite line - how sad.

Not a good fit


I was t impressed

They didn't fit well


The inseam was too long which made them uncomfortable



Perfect pants for Mt Shasta


Wore these pants up Mt Shasta, with a base layer pant underneath. I wouldn't have wanted to be in any other pant for that climb! Kept me dry and comfortable for the entire trip. One of my guides also had them. Awesome pants! For reference I am 5'5", 125 lbs, and wear a small.

Second time buying these pants!


Second pair of Cirque Pants! love these for cold backcountry ski days and even on wet days they seem to keep me dry enough. The fit is great. I love the thigh pocket for my phone and the side pockets for beacon or sunscreen. The bottom of the pants expand enough to fit over my two different style AT ski boots. Love the sturdy material, especially the added cordura (?) on the inside of my ankles. My only request would be to have thigh vents. These pants breathe well, but they can get hot and OR lacks a warmer softshell ski pants with thigh vents. (The trailbreakers are too cold from the knee down). Maybe another color would be nice too,, like a milk chocolate brown!

Good pants


Pants are quite big on the legs and bum. They fit fine around the waist. However, the material and feel of the pants is very nice and I like wearing them during the winter with another layer underneath.

Rock Solid Pants (Pun Intended)


I have been mountaineering for years and have struggled to find a great pair of pants until now! Several of my guy friends own these pants and adore them, so I decided to give them a shot. They kept me warm on a cold, winter ascent while also being breathable. The pants themselves are comfortable and have an adjustable waist, so I didn't need a belt (huge plus for me). I'm 5'9" with an athletic build and the medium fit great with a little bit of room. My only complaint is that they are quite baggy at the leg, almost like a ski pant. My guy friends' version of the pant look more slim fit than the women's version. Overall, I highly recommend these for any mountain enthusiast!

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!,


Sorry for the confusion here, Abbie! I'd go by the "Women's Apparel" size guide on this page:
