Rated 5 out of 5 by from A GREAT performer I've been hiking and backpacking exclusively in softshells for quite a while and have worn a few different brands. This was my first Arc'teryx purchase and I don't see myself ever going a different way. I'm 6' and about 188 with a 33" waist and big legs and butt. The Medium fits like a glove. Excellent stretch and mobility, all the features you need and none you don't, impressive weather resistance, breathable and really well made. Yeah...they're a few bananas but after a year of a ton of use they still look new. I have no doubt these will last for many years. I actually bought some gaiters just to protect them when I'm wearing spikes. No Tenacious Tape for these A very good example of how sometimes you actually do get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around hiking pants These are really good hiking pants. The material is light, smooth, and comfortable. Although light, the weave on the fabric is tight and the pants are surprisingly durable and slightly stretchy. Good water resistance, good wind resistance and very breathable. The fit is on the trim side with stitching that mirrors natural leg movement. I've found these to be perfect on fast, light climbs and all day hikes in cooler weather. For my tastes they work best in spring and fall or early summer mornings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! I adore my Gamma LT pants. Firstly I love that they come in different leg lengths. The medium-tall fit me like they were tailored for me, at 6'4, 33" true waist, 35" true in-seam. I don't even need to use the in-built belt. Secondly, as expected the build quality is just flawless. Perfect stitching, perfect cut. Thirdly, they are the perfect combination of lightweight, comfortable and functional. I've hiked in them in sunny 20C weather and not overheated and used them below freezing with leggings no problems. It's true that they don't repel water for very long, but no woven softshell does once the DWR has been overwhelmed. Not a substitute for shell pants, but better than any other pant for anything but hot weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down, the best pair of pants I have ever worn. Just took these on a 14 mile in wet snow/rain and they stayed completely dry. It was as if my legs had there own climate control, the temperature stayed consistently comfortable despite several changes in weather and activity level. The fit was excellent. Durability is still TBD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable lightweight hiking pants i have worn these hiking for a few years now. They look as good as the day i bought them. I've worn them in the summer or in the winter (just below freezing), they seem to keep me cool/warm when I need it. They aren't waterproof, but are a bit water-resistant in light rain. The pants themselves don't hold water, but the water will eventually soak through if you are in heavy rain for an extended period of time. They dry fast though. I'm 6'0' 200 lbs and the large size fits great. they seem very durable and resistant to abrasion. Also the material is fairly stretchy which is good for hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday pants I love these softshell pants. I bought the XL because of my large cyclists legs and glutes and they have fitted me perfectly, allowing a full range of motion and are very comfortable. The only slight issue I have had is the waist band loosening occasionally. They are very windproof and are surprisingly warm. I have worn these mountaineering in Kosciousko National Park (Australia) and Aoraki Mt Cook National Park (New Zealand) in the past few months and found them excellent. They are wearing well, even after a lot of "bum-sliding" on wet, icy snow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lack of size options leads to comprises Given the investment in dollars and usage time you want something that fits just right. I found the medium tall too restrictive and the large a little baggy. Other manufactures let you order by waist and inseam. I've used them for standing around on snow for 3 hours for a night photography shoot and for a 5 hour hike in the snow. The results were outstanding. I stayed warm and dry and did not feel dampness/sweat. I was wearing gators on the hike, so the bottoms were protected from the 6 inch deep snow. I would like a larger pockets, and a few more pockets. And I wish they fit better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Overall Softshell Pant I own a ton of Arc'teryx and love these pants. They are more than they seem. As far as pants (shells) go.. I also have the Beta AR (hardshell). I LOVE those also, but are often overkill. These pants are EXTREMELY versatile. Very lightweight and VERY breathable. But I've also used them in very cold conditions. I hiked in Denali (AK) for 13 hours straight in -5° temps and was warm and comfortable. In cold weather, with light insulation.. they are great when on the move. They shed snow and light rain great... but I'd probably choose another pant for heavy rain. The face fabric is VERY VERY durable for how thin the material is. I'd say fit is somewhat small, but in a good way. I'm 6', 170 lbs... and Small - Tall fits perfect. They fit tight (athletic), but not too tight, and in a way you want pants like this to fit. Like I said... I love my "bullet proof" Beta AR's for extreme conditions.. but often, these are the right tool for the job. And since they are a thin soft-shell - very comfortable! I get moving in these and don't even think about them - which is what you want from a pant like this.
