Patagonia this year has produced some awesome pieces of outdoor wear. I've got lots of silk-weight and lightweight capilene layers, the Six Chuter Jacket and these pants, and I am so totally stoked! Everything has performed beyond anything printed in a Patagonia catalog! I used to be a huge HUGE arc'teryx fan, but I always thought they were asking primo dollar for the goods and I've got to say that Patagonia produces comparable quality for less, and that's a good thing!
Okay, back to the Super Guide Pants...I'm still in the first month of ownership of these pants, so "waterproofing" is still awesome! I was suspicious that the DWR treatment would fail in a deluge but I was wrong. Lots of pockets, great material, super rugged! if it's cold out (10'F). this is the perfect all around/everything pant.
Did I mention that they are very comfy; the brushed interior is velvetie! I would agree with the last review. Out camping, I could easily just crash in these pants!
Thanks for listening. E-mail me if you have any questions.

Fabric: Patagonia Softshell
Price Paid: $100
The Patagonia Super Guide Pant is a great piece of gear. I recently climbed in the Sierras in them, from a 4,000 foot elevation and 85 degrees to 14,000 feet and 25 degrees, they were flawless. Fit is technical, with articulated knees, and the DWR does not come off easily. I noticed that more detail was built in than in my friend's comparable Mammut Schoeller pants. The boot cuff kept out scree, the pocket held a pair of gloves while I was belaying, the crampon protector on each leg kept me from poking holes in them, and the waist was comfy under a harness and pack. I slept in them and sometimes I wear them to school! They feel soft for such a tough pant.
