Rated4out of5byJoe MikkelsonfromGreat for all things snow!Bought this item in the fall of 2009, so I've been able to get a few seasons of use so far. The best thing about this pant is its durability factor -- no matter if I'm shoveling my driveway at home, camping in a combo of snow and freezing rain, or if I'm just casually walking around in them, they hold up really well! Falling onto my backside and scraping my seat against compacted snow from trying snowboarding for the first time last winter didn't shred the pant's material, either.
As far as comfortability, these are absolutely perfect for being in any kind of conditions, warm or bitterly cold. I've used these in temperatures ranging from -5F up to +40F, and they're great anywhere in between. As long as you've got the right base layers on underneath, you're set.
The only thing I don't find so good is that there's no place to put my wallet in a back pocket. Of course, there's the side utility pocket, but it would be nice to include something back there.
All in all, if you're on the fence about what pant to buy, your search should end here!

Rated4out of5byJoe the RunnerfromGreat Pants. Affordable Price.The pants are great for the price. I ran into trouble with my initial purchase because I bought the Large Tall size online, figuring this would work since I'm 6'3", 180 lbs. They were a bit big around the waist but were able to be adjusted comfortably with the elastic; however, they were too long, even for a guy my height. I ended up going back into the store in town and trading them in for a medium, and these fit snugger around the waste but the length was much better. They don't bunch up as much around my boots. I don't feel like I'm wearing Hammer Pants anymore. I would recommend them for sure - great price for a good quality snowpant, but I'd recommend getting them in store and trying them on before purchasing.

Rated3out of5byPheurtonfromHuge would be an understatementThey do their job, that's for sure. But a large is cut more like an XL-XLong. They were just gigantic. I recommend getting a size smaller than you would be used to if you purchase these online.

Rated5out of5byEbogfromGreat ski pants!I bought these pants mid-season when there wasn't much selection around anywhere. Took them on a ski trip to Breckenridge, CO when it was single digit - teen temps and they worked great! I also wear them regularly as I teach ski lessons locally. These have been very comfortable, fit great with my ski boots, and I would by them over again.

Rated5out of5byVillage ExplainerfromGreat snow pantsI bought these for my first try at cross-country skiing. I fell down a lot, and these pants made it almost not matter. They're not heavy, very flexible, warm enough, and completely waterproof.

Rated5out of5byCharlie Mountain ManfromThese are a winnerGot to agree with everyone else about these pants. While they are a little expensive, they are definitely worth the money. They fit really well and the adjustable waist band allows me to snug them up nicely.
