Great pants-just what I was looking for

Reviewed by Ephblum from Amherst, NY on Sunday, October 25, 2015
I have become a fan of Icebreaker because they seem to have a better fit for me than Smartwool which I have found to be a bit roomy. Also, they have more casual wear vs mostly Smartwool's active wear, which for me is about the only area where I need some tweaks to the wardrobe. I purchased 5 pairs of the Compass shorts over the summer and really like the fit, finish, length, etc. I decided to get 3 pairs of these to start even though they are a bit pricey for casual pants. As I thought, I really like them and they are quickly becoming my go-to at home pant. The length for me is perfect at 33" inseam which is what I normally wear in slacks (36x33). Not sure if I will get more of this particular style since there is only the one color, I may try the other Icebreaker pant that STP has although I am not sure if the material is the same. The blue front zipper is a quirky feature and it makes the pant much more casual/sporty than if it didn't have it. For what I am using them for, they work out great. Only thing I don't particularly like is the single rear pocket, but I have gotten used to it as the shorts are the exact same setup. All the Icebreaker stuff I have has washed great, and I wash them in cold on low spin and on "delicates" in the dryer.

These pants for me strike a balance between yard-work type (i.e. Carhartts) and dress slacks like Incotex and really are a great casual pant. Very comfortable to be in all day on a weekend and they seem to regulate well in the cool to colder weather. They are not great indoors in a hot environment, but if there is air flow they are comfortable for me from 60s down.
