Helly Hansen Odin Huginn Pant

rated 4 of 5 stars The Helly Hansen Odin Pant is a mid-weight soft shell pant that, when layered properly, works well for all 4 seasons. They are both highly durable and weather resistant while still proving excellent range of motion. Soft-shells by nature are best for active pursuits where passive venting of moisture is a huge plus, and these are no different. My few small concerns- lack of a back pocket, slightly flared calf section- are small in comparison to the overwhelmingly successful overall quality of the… Full review

Marmot Men's Scree Pant

rated 4 of 5 stars Durable, water and wind resistant, good winter soft shell. I've had these for four years, and have used them primarily for snowshoeing, xc skiing, and winter hikes. They still look like new. When worn with a mid weight base layer, they're perfect in cool to moderately cold winter weather.  When I bought them, I could only get them in a 32" inseam, which is just long enough, but thankfully they haven't shrunk at all with washing.  The fabric is stretchy enough for active motion, but heavy enough… Full review

Rab Men's Vector Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars One great pair of pant! I've bought mine for my ice climbing, but have yet only been hiking in them. Bought the 32s and they fit like a glove; I'm 6 ft tall and 155 pounds on the athletic side. They seem burly, but they are not lined with a fleece so have them paired with a good base layer for warmth. Great piece of gear. Full review

Outdoor Research Women's Ferrosi Pants

rated 5 of 5 stars LOVE these pants! I have paired with a long john a few times on colder days and kept warm. Summer months the light colours are perfect for every activity! Fit is spot on—all OR products fit the same. Warmth when needed and cool in hotter temps. Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Ferrosi Pants

rated 5 of 5 stars Great quality as always. Very comfortable pants. Converted to shorts they look cool even for everyday use. No complaints. I have used this gear for about two months already in multiple 2-3 day hiking trips in woods. These pants are very comfortable and easy to convert to shorts. I bought it new on sale so the price for me looks lower than quality. overall quality shorts. To be honest I expected a little narrow fit, but this works great as well. Thanks, Outdoor Research for quality product. Full review

Trangoworld Prote FI

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great pair of three-season soft shell pants at an affordable price. Found this pair of pants after hours of searching technical specs that fitted my criteria along with my wallet. Straight from Trangoworld's TRX line 527gr. packed with features! The main fabric is Cordura Bi-stretch Dry (the slimmer more breathable version) of TRX Soft pants which can stretch in any direction and still feel rugged enough to take some abuse from any self-arrest when necessary. Had two of those so far (all good). Full review

Mountain Equipment Ibex Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent lightweight stretchable soft shell pant suitable for hiking, backpacking, snowsports, and mountaineering. Water resistant and wind blocking, they are comfortable over a wide range of temperatures. I received a pair of the Mountain Equipment Ibex Pants in January and have had the pleasure of putting them through a thorough testing in a variety of conditions. A pair of 34" waist, regular length pair fit my 5'9", 165lb frame very well. The fit is described as Alpine with a regular ankle. Full review

Patagonia Men's Super Guide Pant

rated 5 of 5 stars Trustworthy do-it-all winter pant. These have been my go-to winter pants for the better part of a decade. Ice climbing, backcountry skiing, lift-served skiing, snowshoeing, shoveling the driveway, making snow, the Super Guides have done it all with aplomb. And they blend in well enough around town, too. Five zippered pockets -- two hand, two thigh, one rear -- allow for plenty of easily-acessible storage for both everyday essentials (keys, wallet, phone) and winter activity specifics -- maps, scrapers,… Full review

Thunderbolt Sportswear Mark II Original Jean

rated 4 of 5 stars Fashion and performance means you can take these from the office to the mountaintop. Water and stain resistant with 4-way stretch fabric, these pants are good looking and tough as nails. Once and a while a product comes along that you never thought about, but when you see it, you say what took so long. The Thunderbolt Sportswear original Mark-II jeans fill the bill and then some. Constructed of softshell fabric from the Swiss company Schoeller, these jeans are amazingly multi-functional. The… Full review
