Man are these things warm, really warm, like "hard to find a use for" warm. They lean large (which for Mountain Hardwear is rare), so it is easy to fit other garments underneath if necessary (if you happen to find yourself on the dark side of the moon or something). Great for those "standing around" parts of a winter camping trip. Best use I have found so far was at Packers Stadium in Green Bay, during a late season game, with the temperature in the single digits and a wind. These will keep you toasty.

I have worn these pants on Mt. Shasta and other Cascade volcanoes during the winter. They are warm. Too warm for mild winter conditions when you are moving. However, they have leg zippers you can open up to vent. This was really good when stopped. These are warm and pretty windproof. If you want more warmth and wind resistance just put on a shell. Great for winter. Light and rugged pants with great features. A perfect backup in case of bad weather.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Warm up to polyester fill that won't go flat like other alpine insulation. The Mountain Hardwear Chugach Pant features fast-drying Polarguard 3D insulation, a continuous fiber filament that won't shift, clump or mat like other polyester and down fill. Unlike other insulated pants, especially those with full-length side zippersthe Chugach doesn't leave you feeling bogged down with excess weight. This is a warm pant with plenty of functional climbing features. The brushed polyester lining in the upper section also helps to wick away moisture on extended pitches. Handy storage sack included.
