Fabric: Fifteen-denier nylon
Fill: ThermicMicro™ polyester

Although I tend to chill relatively easily, I've used these pants on several trips when temps were in the upper 20's to low 30's, and have found them to be quite comfortable. The side zips make them easy to put on and take off, even with heavy boots, and if you overheat, you can open them up and vent. I use them primarily for lounging around camp, and to sleep in, thus allowing me to carry a lighter sleeping bag.

Reasonably ample zippered pockets with fleece lining provide secure storage and a touch of luxury.
