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 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 fromPerfect for winter running, hiking These pants are beautifully constructed inside and out, I bought them for running, hiking, walking and snowshoe outings in eastern Mass., where it is generally not terribly cold. I've been using biking pants for running and the wind blows right through the backside when I'm headed downwind. The Mistral pants will be a huge improvement and with the stretchy fabric there is room for a light or medium weight base layer. Versatile, comfortable and sporty. I'm 5'9" and 125 pounds and the 4 fits perfectly, although a little on the short side. My husband thinks they look fine but I wouldn't mind another inch in length.

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 fromGood all around outdoorsy pants I bought these pants mainly to use in the winter. I needed something that was wind and water resistant to wear in the snow. I like these pants because they're stretchy and easy to move in. They work great for cross country skiing, snow shoeing, and winter hiking. Definitely need a warmer layer underneath since they're only a shell.

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 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.
