Rated5out of5bytincupfromthe best - perfectThese pants seem to be tough enough to handle running behind a trailing dog or scrambling over rocks while on a Search and Recue training or mission; but they look good enough to wear for a casual day in town. They are extremely comfortable and breathable, even in our Pacific Northwest weather (from warm and humid to cold and wet). The lined waistband is a really nice touch. The zippered pockets mean I don't have to worry about things falling out, but the zippers are strategically placed not to be an annoyance. They are resistant (not proof) to wind (up to about 15 mph) water, and dirt. After about 6 washings, they still look new! Dry quickly, either while you are wearing them, or on the line. And even though we know it isn't the highest priority... well, I have to admit I get compliments whenever I wear them; the fit is not just comfortable, but flattering as well (but I can still comfortably wear a pair of silk long johns underneath). GREAT job! Don't change a thing!!! I want to buy more... when they go on sale. Absolutely recommend to a friend!!!

Rated5out of5byKriscofromFavourite pants!!!I wore these flying across the country. They were comfortable in all the right places. They looked just as good at the end of my day long journey as they did when I put them on 18 hrs earlier! Great pair of go anywhere and look good all the time pants! Highly recommend to all!

Rated1out of5byJocelyn the kidfrom2 pairs fell apart after the first wash.I was excited to try out these pants. I wore them once on a 10 mile snowshoe. They fit and moved well just as expected. However, when I washed them the first time, according to the instructions, the pocket on the thigh fell off. I returned the pants and got another pair. I again wore them once and when I washed them (following instructions) the thigh pocket on the second pair came off again. One side of the pocket is sewn into the side seam of the pants. The other 3 sides of the pocket are glued on. However, this glue does not hold up to the washing machine. For the price of these pants, I would expect them to last through several washings. I have returned the second pair and am now searching for a higher quality pant.

Rated5out of5bycefromBest cold weather pants everGreat for cold weather hiking and cross country skiing. Pocket on thigh is perfect to keep camera at the ready. SO comfortable. This is my second pair (lost weight and needed a smaller size!)

Rated5out of5byjustmarthafromGreat pantsI bought a pair of these pants probably 4 years ago and wear them almost daily in the winter for everything I do outdoors. They go on the minute I get home from work. I bought them a bit larger than my normal size so I can wear them over long johns or even polartec riding breeches when I ride horses on cold days. These pants are great - they have held up amazingly well to everything from horse-back rides to hikes to tree-pruning marathons. The cloth is very sturdy but not heavy, and I like the fact that hay and dry grass doesn't stick to it. They aren't really attractive, but that isn't why I bought them. I'd call them a great value, even at the price.
