Mountain Hardwear Chugach 3D Pant
The Chugach 3D Pant has been discontinued. If you're looking for something new, check out the best synthetic insulated pants for 2023.
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. However, they have leg zippers you can open up to vent. This was really good when stopped. These are warm and pretty windproof. If you want more warmth and wind resistance just put on a shell. Great for winter. Light and rugged pants with great features. A perfect backup in case of bad weather.
Price Paid: $130
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.
