Rated2out of5byeveryfrogfromVelcro Tabs need to go!!!!I purchased these nearly three years ago. They breathe wonderfully and keep things dry. I really like the full hip-to-foot zip. They fit well and look good... when you're standing still.
When you start moving, forget it. The velcro tabs at the waistband, just above the hips, come apart after repetitive motion, such as hiking uphill or ski touring. They fit just below your natural waist, where the hip belt on a pack sits, so as you move, the velcro tends to come undone and next thing you know, the zippers are a 1/4 way open down your leg. Then the pants pull in weird places and it's incredibly uncomfortable.
Just change the velcro to a snap closure and they'd be perfect.
