REI Windbrake Thermal Pants - Women'sis rated4.6667out of5by9.
Rated5out of5byfromFabulous pants!I was looking for sweat pants to wear after swimming in cool weather. These are, by far, much better than any sweat pant I have ever owned. They are much nicer looking, comfortable, warm, and I loved my first pair so much I bought another. They are a bit long, but with boots when it gets very cold they should be alright. Great pockets, too!

Rated5out of5byfromWarm, comfortable, durable and well madeNeeded some warm pants for car camping high in the mountains. Temp got very low, but these pants kept me warm and comfortable. You can tell they are so well made they should last a lifetime of camping!

Rated4out of5byfromStayed warmI'm usually the person who gets cold quickly, but have stayed comfortably warm in these. They are not bulky and they helped keep the wind out while still letting my skin breathe. The waffle fabric lining did rub against my knees a bit (not terribly but a little bothersome) so I prefer to wear shorts or tights as a base layer. I've worn these walking/hiking and showshoeing with temperatures in the mid-20's... am hopeful to venture out next winter in colder weather to see how they do.

Rated4out of5byfromNot quite what I needThese pants are solidly constructed and if I was still living in Minneapolis area I would keep them. They would also be perfect for winter hikes in the White Mountains. For running, short hikes and short snowshoeing outings in eastern Mass., they are too warm and also pretty bulky. The Mistral soft shell pants with the option of adding a base layer will be more appropriate for my situation. BTW I am 5'9" and 125 lb. and the small was a perfect fit.

Rated5out of5byfromWarm and Fit WellI am very pleased with the look and fit of these pants. I was afraid they would be too bulky after reading the reviews, but they fit nicely and are more flattering than I thought they would be, and the rain shell pants fit fine over them. I got the matching jacket too, and am happy with both. The feel is plush, almost like velveteen. I will wear it walking the dog, hiking, and other outside activities. Just what I hoped for.

Rated5out of5byfromUP TestedBring it--wind, snow. Great for snowshoeing. Light, comfortable, well-constructed, and tough. Next test: Antarctica in January.

Rated5out of5byfromBest Pants EVER!!!I LOVE these pants!!! I recently moved to Colorado from Florida - having lived in Florida my whole life - and wondered how I was ever going to survive the winter because I'm not a stay indoors kind of girl. First I bought snowboard pants but my husband said they were a bit much for walking in our neighborhood. Then I found these pants! I don't look like a freak on my daily walks and I am amazed at how warm I stay. I pair them with Mountain Hardware's power stretch tights and honestly, I have walked while it's been snowing and incredibly windy when the temps were in the teens and my legs stayed comfortably warm. I've also used these while biking (16 miles, up and down multiple hills! I'm a commuter) - its great they come with velcro at the bottom of the legs so you can cinch them tighter. But my favorite part is how durable they are. I wear these nearly every other day and they are holding up so much better than the other gear I've purchased. And they are comfortable enough I can wear them around the house too! I just wish they came in other colors - tan would be so great!!! - and it would be nice if they didn't have the different fabric on the inside near the ankles so they could look even more like regular pants! Btw I'm 5'5, weigh 135 lbs and the small fit perfectly! Truly they are worth every penny!!!

Rated4out of5byfromGreat,butGreat pants; warm, comfortable, and still look like casual pants rather than PJs. But I had to return them because I could not make the 32 in inseam work. They are stiff enough at the bottom that they would just perch on top of my shoes/boots rather than floating down like any other 32in pants I own. Ended up getting Men's 30 in inseam version that does not fit quite right at the top, but still looks much better over all. Nothing worse then pants that make you look like you shrunk. And I'm 5'7" (size 12) ... Should work for tall but slim individuals ...
