REI Vaporush Windstopper Pants

Comfortable soft-shell hiking pants that do what they say—keep wind and even light rain and most snow off your legs and keep warm in cooler temps while also allowing venting in warmer (but not hot) weather. Durable, comfortable, and can even pass for decent pants in town stops. Features REI documents the following features, and I have provided my comments on each alongside, with more explanation in the appropriate section. Fully windproof and highly breathable, GORE WINDSTOPPER fabric is water… Full review

Montane Featherlite Pants

Light-as-air fabric magically protects your legs from cold wind and light rain! Wonderful for hiking in the cold and damp when the wind kicks up. From now on, I won't hike without them. The Montane Featherlite Pants are my new favorite thing in the world. I went hiking in the Adirondacks this past weekend, and the weather was sloppy and damp, chilly (about 33 degrees), and windy. The first day, I wore my typical synthetic, warmish tights, and had a very cold posterior most of the day. The second… Full review

Marmot DriClime Side Zip Pant

I've been wearing my DriClime Side Zip Pants (and DriClime shirt) this winter as a base layer on hikes in the White Mountains of New Hampshire...home of some of the world's worst weather! I just wore them in below zero temps with wind chills approaching minus 50, and together with a 300wt fleece jacket and pant on top, was warm, comfortable and DRY! I'll be bringing them to Alaska in May for sure. Full review

Marmot DriClime Side Zip Pant

Incredible pieces. Extremely versatile. I consider these items a must for everyday life as well as extreme life. I know it sounds like I work for Marmot, but the fact is, these garments are the ultimate base layers. Very comfortable next to the skin, excellent over long underwear (on colder days), smooth as silk under a shell and perfect as everyday winter/fall outerwear. They are not windproof, but in the winter/fall they'll be your second skin. Full review

Patagonia Pneumatic Pants

These pants are incredibly versitile. I wear them with a gore-tex parka to stay dry while backpacking through rain. Full gore-tex pants don't make much sense to me because they cost so much and are only good when it's pouring. The Pneumatics I can wear any time and not have to worry about get soaked in my own sweat. They breathe better than me. If it gets too hot in the sun and I don't feel like stopping to take them off, I can just pull them up to my knee and keep moving. They are not waterproof,… Full review
