      by fromREI Mistral Pants I love my REI Mistral pants. They are durable and comfortable, particularly for cooler weather hiking. The fabric feels substantial, yet it is flexible. The big draw back is that the smallest size is 2 which prompted the 4 vs. 5 Star rating. I need to wear a belt for a better fit. Still, I would recommend this pant to friends. REI, please offer the Mistral in Size 0.

      by fromgood for nordic skiing and biking I bought these pants to wear in Russia and Finland over the Christmas / New Year's holidays. They were perfect for hiking around the city, ice skating, and nordic skiing in the Artic Circle! I wore them as a top layer over silk long underwear or running tights, and they were fine at -20C temperatures. They are comfortable and move well. The only draw back is that the waist area is a bit bulky if you are fit with a slim figure.

      by fromMy favorite travel pants! My husband and I love these pants for travelling: they are always the first pair in the bag and the ones we wear the most on our trips, whether we are motorcycling, hiking or urban travelling. The fit is flattering and they pack and wash great--a definite plus when you're on the road. We just returned from 3 weeks riding a motorcycle in New Zealand and these pants were perfect: comfy for both riding and mid-day hikes alike. They resist stains pretty well, too, so you can wear them a week or more without needing to wash them. The only complaint I have is that the fit is a bit boxy in the waist for us curvy girls with a defined waist: because they stretch a bit after wearing, I sometimes need a belt to hold them up (something I don't want to wear on vacation!). If the waist could be taken in just a tad, these would be the absolute perfect pants.

      by fromQuality Pants These are my first pair of softshell pants. I should have bought some sooner. They are much warmer hiking in show and severe wind than my regular hiking pants. They keep me warm and also breathe well.

      by fromBreathable, flexible hiking pants I use these pants mainly for hiking. They are very comfortable, repel water and are not too hot. My only complaint is that when I hike I need to tighten the waist of my pants. These pants fit me at the beginning of hikes and are falling off of me at the end. They need an adjustable waist.

      by fromGreat for lots of activities I needed a pair of pants for cross country skiing that were light enough to breath but warm enough for snow, and waterproof for when I fall on my butt. These are awesome! They are comfortable and stretchy and breathable and lightweight. They are also perfect for hiking in chilly weather. I also recently decided to try them while biking and they work great for that too! These are very versatile pants that are definitely a staple in my active wardrobe. I have also been asked about them by other people, so they must look good too.

      by fromMost travel friendly pants I ever had. I love this pants so much that I do not want REI discontinue this product. I created my public profile in order to praise this pants here. I love this more than any other brand travel friendly pants I have or I tried. They are stylish, and yet functional. Those side zipped pockets are wonderful, fit camera, passport, IPhone, and all kinds of other things without fearing dropped them out accidentally. I wish all of my travel pants have those pockets. I will buy those pants just because of that, not to mention about other wonderful features this pants have. I do not need to wash them on a 2 weeks trip, if I have another light weight pants to change once or twice. After I bought them, I have never left them home on my trip, especially comfortable on those long international flights or layovers. I wish REI can also make a lighter version for hot summer use. They are a bit heavy for summer. I have bought another pair to save for the future, even though my first pair is still in a very good condition.
