Patagonia Nano Puff Pants

rated 4 of 5 stars Warm and comfortable in action or at rest, these pants bring the insulation and packability expected from the Nano Puff line. A well-tailored fit and the ability to breathe well allows for active use in lower temps yet the puffy synthetic insulation protects against wind and cold even at rest. These pants would be a great addition for anyone looking for packable insulation for the lower half. Peakbaggers or thru hikers wanting easy to carry wind pants with insulation or fishermen wanting insulation… Full review

RailRiders Backcountry Khakis

rated 5 of 5 stars Very lightweight, excellent aesthetic (actually looks like something I'd wear to the office!), well designed pockets. Best for hiking or going on the town. Highly recommended for those who want quick drying hiking pants that can transition easily to other more formal ventures. I purchased these to use on an upcoming several day trip. Overall, the fit and finish on these pants is excellent.  Further, they're light, hang well, have normal belt loops (as opposed to the really thick ones on some hiking… Full review

The North Face Men's Paramount Convertible Pant

rated 4 of 5 stars Practical and comfortable, these pants excell in a variety of conditions. Got a pair of these a few years back, and still love them. I have done many backpacking and day hike trips in them, and they are still my "go to" pants in a variety of conditions. Some other reviewers have complained about the fit of these, but I find that they fit me perfectly. Some pants and shorts I've had in the past, have a tendency to be pushed down by my pack hipbelt, but these stay in place nicely, all day long. The… Full review

L.L.Bean TrioZone Pants

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This fleece pant was purchased as an alternative to insulated Gore-tex type pants, for activities such as hiking, snowshoeing, kicksledding, and skijoring. I have found the pants to perform better than I had expected, and they are used 4-5 times per week. I would recommend this product, especially if it can be obtained on sale (as is currently). These pants are very comfortable. I have previously owned fleece pants that pilled, and the fleece deteriorated...these pants have maintained their fleece… Full review

Cabela's Dry-Plus MXP Pants

rated 4 of 5 stars The Cabela's Dry-Plus MXP pants are lightweight, waterproof, and breathable, and work equally well as rain pants or an outer shell for snow sports. The two pockets are closed with waterproof zippers that really are waterproof. Full-length side zippers allow for easy donning over boots and ventilation. I've had these Cabela's Dry-Plus MXP pants for about a year now, and I just love them for snowshoeing. They stop the wind like you wouldn't believe, breathe so well that even with just silkweight polypro… Full review

Montane Super Terra Pants

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These are rugged outdoor pants which can be used for many different activities. Durable, yet stretchy, Montane’s Super Terra Pants are comfortable in fit and feel. With plenty of deep pockets located nearly everywhere, having access to any gear or food on the trail isn’t an issue. Even with leg vents, I’d still recommend wearing these for cool/cold weather use as the material itself isn’t very breathable. Testing Process Montane claims that the Super Terra Pants can be used for several uses… Full review

Bergans Men's Tufto Pants

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Except in the case of extreme cold or heat the Tufto Pants do everything I need pants to — from hiking and climbing to skiing and biking. Over the years I have gone from very low expectations for pants (wearing blue jeans in the mountains) to very high. I have gone from backpacker only to climber and minor mountaineer.  Disambiguation: The term “Bergen” is a generic term for any military backpack in the U.K. The term was used to describe the backpack style favored by skiers in Bergen, Norway. … Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's Plasmic Pant

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight hard shell pants with excellent breathability in a variety of conditions. In all the years I've been exploring in the outdoors, I've never owned a pair of real rain pants. I have some fine softshell pants and wind pants, but never really owned a hardshell. With a thru-hike of the Wonderland Trail around Mount Rainier on the horizon next summer, I knew it was time to start looking. I'm a big fan of eVent waterproof-breathable fabrics, and my REI eVent jacket is fantastic. Mountain Hardwear… Full review

RailRiders Men's Adventure Khaki

rated 5 of 5 stars A great pair of pants for traveling and light adventures, but still nice enough to wear into the office on Monday morning. Super comfy, unexpectedly tough, and quite stylish. The Adventure Khakis are the lightest pairs of pants I own. I have one in each color and I wear them several times a week. What I love about the Adventure Khaki is how lightweight and packable they are. You can crush em up, jam them in a bag, and pull them out hours/days later and they will be wrinkle free. They are super light… Full review
