Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Reviewed by Allison from Perth, Australia on Thursday, June 20, 2013It's always a risk when buying online but the reviews and size information was very helpful. I bought these for a winter walking trip in Europe and they will be perfect for our day walks.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Vacation Hiker from Florida on Saturday, February 9, 2013Haven't gotten to use them outdoors yet, but they are very comfortable and warm. Form fitting and go well under the Mountain Hardware Paclite shell pants. They are just the right length for hiking boots. THere are no pockets in them, but pockets would just make them look lumpy anyway.
Reviewed by mizseattle from Seattle, WA on Monday, January 28, 2013High quality pant, worth a shot considering the price. I really wanted to love these pants since they have a slightly shorter inseam than other similar products. (Short girls who can't hem need athletic pants too!)
The waist is extremely high though, coming up a bit above my belly button. I thought this would be annoying with a pack so returned them. If you're used to a higher-waist pant, these might be for you.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by tina from Fort Collins, CO on Thursday, January 17, 2013Order big! I'm typically a size 8 and based on the comments here, I ordered a 10. They were too tight and too short. I exchanged for a 12 - and they are perfect. I love these pants. Cross Country skiing, early morning dog walks in the winter, etc. Works great alonge or with thin baselayer.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by sgirl from northwest on Friday, December 28, 2012I FINALLY found a pair of awesome, warm, softshell pants for cycling! I don't know why it took me so long to figure out that climbing and backcountry pants are so suited to cycling. These pants have windproof and abrasion panels in front AND back, on the butt to be precise! This works out so nicely for sitting on a wet or cold bike seat OR rocks/ground when hiking. SO many softshell pants have the venty back and this does not work out for much but running. The fleece is SUPER soft and in just the right places, and there is ventilation in front hip area, which is exactly where it should be. Nice tapered legs with zips are also perfect for cycling, but they aren't SO small that you struggle to get them over your ankles. I am a communter and recreational mountain biker, not a road racer. Excellent stretchy fabric, and perfect length! I am 5'4" 140 and ordered a Euro 38. These are fitted on me, but that is what I was looking for. I have no problem getting a pair of bike shorts underneath. I would order a size up if I was planning on a thicker base layer I think. I also used these to run in ALASKA when it was 15 degress! LOVE THESE. Additionally, I am in the northwest, and I ride in these all winter in the dreary rain, and it just beads up and runs off, excellent water resistant qualities! Only thing I would say is they are sort of high waisted, which is perfect for my use. Overall I consider these my midweight softshells, with my light weight being the Marmot Scree, and my heavyweight the Patagonia Northwall to give an idea of where they stand.

“Do these pants have a draw-string waist? I like it when pants have a draw-string waist because then you can adjust them to how you like to wear them, and also if you gain or lose a little weight. Thank you.”
The pants have a semi-elastic waist with drawcord hem.
