Feature rich but way too large, baggy and what is up with the belt line?Bergans makes good gear. They used Dermizax fabrics which, in my opinion, perform much better than Goretex products, and also allow you to have a stretchable face fabric. Unfortunately, Bergans only chooses to use a 2-way stretch material, which, in turn, forces the manufacturer to produce a garment that allows room for movement. The result is a fabric that is softer than Goretex products but still is noisy and does not drape as well as 4-way stretch products of Descente & Kjus that employ the same Dermizax weather protective fabric with a different face fabric.,,,,This pant in small was extremely baggy and large on the waist for me. I am 145 lbs, 5'-8", with a 39" chest. I wish I could have tried the xs, but it was not in stock (I don't think Moosejaw even bothers to carry them (a mistake, in my opinion)). The colors are great but the belt line is fraught with tones of excess fabric that creates a wrinkled look that is unattractive to say the least.
