Amundsen Peak Knickerbockers

The Amundsen Peak Knickerbockers are designed to stand up to some of the most extreme winter conditions on earth. The quality of construction and materials is obvious out of the box and comes through in the wearing experience. They'll stand up to any winter condition and are surprisingly wearable during the summer, too. A great investment if you prefer fewer, high-quality pieces in your outdoor gear collection. LoneStranger was lucky enough to be assigned the Men's Peak Knickerbockers for review… Full review

Amundsen Peak Knickerbockers

The Amundsen Peak Knickerbockers are designed to protect from the elements on a cold winter peak yet vent well enough to climb mountains in full pack on a hot summer trip. Combined with gaiters or just calf length socks knickerbockers are a versatile and different option to consider that brought a surprising amount of functionality to the trail in all seasons. Wide waistband, articulated knees, and five zippered pockets combined with a durable, four-way stretch, 3L fabric make these technical gear,… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Stretch Ozonic Pant

Lightweight and well-made, but won't take much abuse. Recently got the Stretch Ozonic Pants (men's medium, short) and put them to the test on a climb of Mt St Helens the other day. Needed some lightweight basic wind and rain protection. They fit that bill. Didn't take up much pack space and were easy to get on and off over boots. Fit was very good and fabric was helpfully stretchy. I liked the feel of it. The only downside was that the seat didn't hold up well to the enjoyably long butt glissade… Full review

Marmot PreCip Full Zip Pants

Stood up to more than a decade of moderately frequent use, and have done what I needed 'em to do several times in severe weather far from modern conveniences I purchased my Marmot PreCip Full Zip Pants well over a decade ago to replace those of another outdoor clothing maker with which I was less than satisfied. I have yet to buy more—these have done the jobs asked of them, and then some. I use them around home when working outside in rainy weather, walking dogs in rain, etc. A fair bit of use… Full review

Patagonia PowSlayer Bibs

Patagonia's PowSlayer Bibs are a premium, lightweight yet durable, waterproof snowsports pants for the backcountry-focused skier and rider. They work equally well for inbounds and side-country trips too. Their Gore-Tex Pro fabric keeps out all types of precipitation—not just powder—reliably and comfortably all day long. With a 100-percent recycled face fabric, they bring together environmental credibility with technical waterproof/breathable performance. At $599 the PowSlayer's MSRP is decidedly… Full review

Black Diamond StormLine Stretch Rain Pant

A light and waterproof pair of rain pants that have some nice stretch to them, making them easy to move in and take along for multiple outdoor pursuits. I found them best when hiking and camping, with enough room for thin layers underneath, but a little maxed out when wearing thicker layers underneath. Construction & Durability:In my experience, there are typically two kinds of rain pants, either a) ultralight and easily rip when stretched too far, brushed up against vegetation, etc, or b) super… Full review

Marmot PreCip Pant

Wore these in an all-day rain on a backpack in Pennsylvania in spring 2010. The kleenex I had in the front pocket was dry the entire day Full review

Marmot PreCip Pant

For me, the Marmot PreCip Pants serve as a lightweight alternative to snow pants when the weather is not warm but not subzero. They are just right for the beginning or end of the snow season when you appreciate the impermeability but don’t want the extra bulk. Fit and Comfort:  I like how the pants find the right size between being able to maneuver in them while not simultaneously looking like MC Hammer pants from the early nineties. They are about just the right size to pull over thermal underwear… Full review

Marmot PreCip Pant

Overall these pants do what I want them to do—if you see them on sale go for it, otherwise they are little pricey. I'm happy with them, but there are a few issues that might be solved by other brands. Fit & Comfort: No complaints in the comfort department. As a slightly tall person (5'9") size medium is a great length for tucking and letting water run off at the base of your shoe/boot. The waist band is comfortable and easily cinched to your size, and as these pants are good for layering the… Full review
