Feathered Friends 40 Below Pants are some of the best, if not the best, down insulated pants on the market. They are tough and warm. The toughness comes from a nylon shell with even heavier nylon reinforcement on the seat and knee where you need it most, while the warmth comes from high quality 750 fill power down.
The knees are articulated to aid in movement, there are suspenders and full side zips with wind flaps. The shell is also Event, one of the newest shell materials.
I use these pants while on patrol and winter camping up here in the Arctic where good clothing can be a matter of life or death. To illustrate this, last December I had to sleep outside with only my clothes on while the temperature hovered around - 42°C. With the 40 Below pants I was surprisingly warm for the entire night.
I also have a pair of Canada Goose Tundra Pants which I no longer wear as they are sub par to say the least. Compared to the Feathered Friends 40 Below pants the CG Tundras look flat and cheap. The CG Tundras have unspecified down sandwiched between quilted fabric while the FF pants are baffled; the way all good quality insulated clothing and sleeping bags should be made.
Feathered Friends is also a custom shop which allows you to customize your clothing however you want while their prices are reasonable.
The Feathered Friends 40 Below pants are well worth the price and live up to their reputation.

Designed to be used in the same conditions as our Rock & Ice Parka, these are our warmest down pants. The cut is roomier than the Frontpoint Pants, and they are filled with more down.
The -40 pant also features a stretch-woven back panel that keeps the back of the pants situated high over your kidneys. They also feature a through-crotch zip to minimize exposure of tender areas to the elements. We stock the -40 Pants in eVent fabric.
