The North Face Varius Guide Pants - Men's Regularis rated4.0out of5by2.
Rated3out of5byfromnot badThe pants look and feel great. the suspenders do dig into my delts/pecs w/winter pack (maybe why they were on clearance rack. the side zips bind...ALWAYS. i have to undo my pack and pull dowm me bloomers to unbind the zips. not fun on the dome of Washington w/80mph wind, 70 below:) other than that i really do like them...honest. thinking of returning but will prob keep but plan on not touching them if its real cold cause they are super warm and the gators(that heave velcro/snaps)are great.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat Fall/Winter Rain PantsThese pants are great for when it's raining. In a pinch, they would come through in a snow storm but I would recommend the TFN Freedom Insulated Pants for inclement weather. I would consider these pants a little too warm to use in the spring but I guess you could go commando and be fine. Overall, these pants are top quality and protect you from wetness. BTW, I'm 5'7 (32x29) and around 150lbs. I ordered a Medium Short Inseam and they fit PERFECTLY.
