I love Patagonia. Amazing products. I am currently in the market for a new pair of ski pants. Patagonia brand was a no-brainer because of the H2NO fabric. Everything about these pants was exactly what I was looking for. Here are some product pluses: Scuff Guards, Breathable, Water resistant, Thigh Vents, Articulated Knees and lots of pockets to name a few. Unfortunately, these pants are hella long! I am 5'8" and I don't want to be walking all over them in boots or street shoes. I had to send them back.
