Rated 3 out of 5 by from not that impressed. So let me start by saying overall these pants are great.they are very water resistant, definitely wind proof to a extent. and the zip pocket is great. Now here's where they loose everything said above. I purchased these in towards the end of November 2016. They usually get worn once a week on a 8 mile hike. I wash them every 2-3 weeks as its winter so i wear a compression pant under them. The material in the crotch region is already splitting. For what i paid im extremely disappointed in them. This could have been a factory flaw i just noticed i will exchange them for another pair and if i have the same issue they will be returned for something of better build quality. Overall great pant besides this issue. I will update this if im able to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pants i have ever worn Just went on a hiking trip this past weekend up in the White Mountains. It was raining the whole time and the average temperature was about 40 - 50F. I don't know where these pants have been my whole life. I was warm the entire time and they never felt wet. The natural wool definitely acted like a temperature regulator and stayed dry the entire time. I am so used to conventional hiking pants and now that I have tried these Smartwool tights, I will never leave without them. These tights gave me so much mobility and I didn't feel constrained what so ever. I did notice that when I didn't have the draw cord tied my backpack was pushing the tights down, but that was easily fixed by tying them up. There is a zipped pocket on the back which i dint really use and a side pocket where I stored my gps. Very pleased with these tights. I was sliding on rocks and logs and I got no tears or holes. My first impression is very durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Excuses I finally bought a second pair of warm running tights so I could run outside in the cold weather. Ran outside in 20° weather and felt very comfortable and had a great run. The tights are warm comfortable and feel great.
