I am preparing to climb Mt Cotopaxi in Ecuador and bought these pants in preparation. I have been wearing these on my training hikes in cold Michigan weather that has consisted of snow, sleet and rain. These pants fight off the elements and have been warm and comfortable for the hikes. I can't wait to get them in the mountains.
I had some Mammuts, but sold them and bought these. These fit much better and I love suspenders for keeping the crotch up; nice when wearing a harness. Fabric is good and seems very durable. Not a big fan of the thigh pockets. They are probably more a cosmetic thing. The gaiters are minimal and they should be; who needs two layers of gaiters?
