User Review: The North Face Men's Eidolon Pant
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $74 Australian
Lightweight, windproof and tough.
- Very lightweight
- Very breathable
- The fly is almost unusable
In Australia it is hard to find pants for use above the treeline, so when I saw these I was tempted to buy. They look highly technical so it was unclear how well they would work out in the field.
Well they are absolutely fantastic. Comfortable, warm enough and not too warm for Spring and Autumn. Winter use will require long johns. They are completely windproof. I don't know yet how rain proof they will be.
The only shortcoming is the fly which is next to useless — change that — completely useless! In spite of this shortcoming, I highly recommend these pants.
Update: Today I wore them in windy snow, sleet and foggy wet mist. I stayed dry and comfortable. I wore long johns underneath.
