REI Mistral Pants
Fabric: scholler dynamic fabric
Price Paid: $69.98
I would first start by saying I would give this product 4.5 stars if that were available. I have taken these pants on numerous overnight adventures in rain, sleet and snow. Warmth = better than adequate, Durability = better than adequate. Waterproofness/resistance = excellent. Fit = is the only downfall of these pants; I think they run a tad large! I would recommend these pants for general mountaineering/skiing and hikes of all lengths. These pants were worn in that backcountry of the Chugach Mountains, Alaska.
Fabric: stretch Scholler
Price Paid: $50
I bought these pants for mountain biking and they are the best! I wear them for everything now. Hiking, biking, walking... they are so comfortable you will forget you have them on!
I haven't been camping nor have I been in the rain with them yet, but I have been splashed with mud and water on the trails and it just ran off.
They could pass for dress pants too!
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The REI Mistrals are sleek, all-purpose soft-shell pants. They're perfect pants to keep you hiking comfortably through autumn's weather changes. Water-resistant nylon/polyester/spandex blend withstands rugged use and remains windproof to 25 mph; because the fabric dries quickly, you won't feel chilled or clammy. 4-way-stretch fabric, articulated knees and center gusset ensure comfortable movement. Jeans-style waistband, zipper fly and bonded belt loops. Waistband side seams are eliminated, and inseams are offset to avoid irritation. 11 in. leg zippers ease donning and removing bulky footwear. 2 zip hand pockets and 2 rear zip pockets. REI Mistral pants' active fit provides a full range of motion.
