Recent Soft Shell Pant Reviews

Arc'teryx Men's Gamma MX Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars A major upgrade over wool pants. They're rugged, but soft. They're warm and water repellant. I wear them XC skiing, sometimes with a ski bib over them. I wear them bushwhacking. Full review

Beyond Clothing M5 Glacier Pant

rated 2 of 5 stars $380— I was expecting a lifelong pant with terrific quality and features. NOPE, the cheapest zippers on the pockets that I have EVER seen, AND, misconstructed on top of that. Sent back, then one month later I get them back and the zipper bottom had a cheap, bent-up plastic clasp replaced at the bottom. I had to hammer it and straighten it myself. Second pair, pocket zipper froze due to the same cheap construction. Sent back, three weeks later they are on a one-week track back to my address. They… Full review

Bergans Okla Lady Pant

rated 3 of 5 stars Designed for ski touring and mountaineering, the Okla does not live up to expectations when it comes to these activities. The cuff is too narrow to comfortably accommodate a ski touring boot, and the thin, lightweight material is unlikely to provide adequate insulation in higher elevations. However, the Okla is an excellent option for those on the market for a lightweight, breathable soft-shell pant that can be worn across a variety of other winter activities such as snowshoeing, backcountry nordic… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Ferrosi Pants

rated 5 of 5 stars The Outdoor Research Ferrosi Pants are extremely comfortable. They are breathable, water-resistant, wind-resistant, and move with you during activity. I bought these pants (that are technically rock-climbing pants) in an attempt to get some super comfortable hiking pants that move with me and that were not baggy on my legs. These are not Outdoor Research (OR)'s most slim fitting pants but they are not "relaxed." I bought these at Rock Creek in Chattanooga, Tenn., by recommendation of one of their… Full review

Patagonia Women's Alpine Guide Pants

rated 4 of 5 stars One the best winter pants I've every owned due to the almost magical fabric. I own lots of softshell pants, perhaps too many. The Patagonia Alpine Guide Pants are generally found on the top of my pants heap. The Polartec Powershield fabric is amazing. It is highly breathable and highly wind proof. The lightly brushed interior feels nice against my skin and the outside of the fabric remains surprisingly unblemished after a season of use. I find they are best used in temperatures below 40°F and I've… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Cirque Pants

rated 5 of 5 stars Functional, comfortable, active, 3-season sports pant! Excels even under difficult alpine climbing conditions here in our cool/moist PNW climate. Some features hard to find in any pant, are in the design of Cirque. Can't find your size? Great news ... I had an alteration tailor altered my leg length and kept OR's amazing 'infinite' guarantee! CRIQUE? Pronounced: "sir-ka"; Meaning:  "A steep, amphitheatre-shaped hollow occurring at the upper end of a mountain valley, especially one forming the head… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Ferrosi Pants

rated 5 of 5 stars Extremely comfortable, great wind resistance, very stretchy, and fit great. I was in the market for a wind resistant pair of pants (not windproof as I get warm absurdly easily), after having wearing (and loving) the Ferrosi Jacket for a couple of years, I decided to try these out. The first time I tried them on, I loved them. I then wore them out on a bike ride in 45 degree weather, and wondered how I ever lived without them. Right when I got back from my bike ride I bought another pair. These pants… Full review

Marmot Men's Scree Pant

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Marmot Scree Pant is an extremely comfortable, water resistant, breathable, highly wind resistant soft shell pant that performers exceptionally well in 4-season weather. Points can be added for the stylish look of these pants. Testing Parameters Several day hikes and mild weather backpacking. Three days on Mt. Rainier with lower elevation temps in mid-60s, upper elevation temps in low-20s with 30-40mph winds. ========================================= Fit & Comfort I purchased these pants… Full review

Arc'teryx Men's Gamma LT Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars A serious performer that is well worth the money. I don't climb, but I do hike and backpack, and my preference has always been softshell pants. I was a Marmot guy for a while but after another pair found itself covered with Tenacious Tape (my fault...not Marmot's) I bit the bullet and dropped some bananas on the Gamma LT's after reading countless positive reviews. I've only had them for about three months but after just getting off a long solo in the Sierra's I'll say these are, by far, the best… Full review
