I have worn these pants on Mt. Shasta and other Cascade volcanoes during the winter. They are warm. Too warm for mild winter conditions when you are moving.

Man are these things warm, really warm, like "hard to find a use for" warm. They lean large (which for Mountain Hardwear is rare), so it is easy to fit other garments underneath if necessary (if you happen to find yourself on the dark side of the moon or something). Great for those "standing around" parts of a winter camping trip. Best use I have found so far was at Packers Stadium in Green Bay, during a late season game, with the temperature in the single digits and a wind. These will keep you toasty.
