User Review: Patagonia Men's Guide Pants
Price Paid: $129
I purchased these pants for winter hiking in the Northeast. To date I have used them on every winter trip for the past 2 years. They are great! If I could give them a higher rating than 5 I would.
They breath well, even when working hard (and I usually sweat a lot even in the winter when I am working hard). When they do get wet, the dry very fast. They do not ride up like some other pants I've worn.
They kept me warm all day without a base layer, down to about 10 deg. F. with a good 50 mph wind. They may work well even past that, but I have not put them to the test yet. Maybe this year :) They also offer great wind protection. Great durability, and I have put them to the test... They are not the lightest pants on the market, but for the price they are perfect!
