Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made with a bias toward use with ski boots. Well made pants. I like the adjustable waist, belt loops, loops for suspenders and a clip to attach to boot laces. The bottoms are great for ski boots but are too loose for climbing boots. I prefer to avoid bringing gaiters. I would have liked a horizontal thigh pocket zipper orientation over a vertical one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great built pants, just wish they were longer I use this product for fall and winter mountaineering, the pants themselves are built great, are very comfortable when using for an extended period of time. I have a 31" waist and height is 6'2", hoping the Medium size would be OK in terms of the inseam fitting. But unfortunately they are too short for my legs, I don't want to go for an XL to gain the 34" Inseam. I just wish OR would create regular and long length in each size to help out us taller slimmer folks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mountaineering pants I was surprised at how comfortable these pants were. The special features: gusseted crotch, crampon protection on inner legs, and the grommet hook all came in handy. I snagged my crampons more than once, but never tore a hole in them. With having the grommet hook in place, snow stayed out of my boots even on some post holing, and the risk of tearing open the crotch is virtually gone with the extra strip of material there. I am 6' and 180 lbs. I went with the medium as I have about a 32 inch waist. Sometimes, 31, and sometimes 33. Maybe I could have gone with the large, but I think it would have been too big. As long as they don't shrink, a medium is perfect for someone my size. They can be snug in the quads, but they are stretchy enough that I don't find it restrictive unless you were perhaps a speed-skater or something like that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Soft Shell! I was looking for a good soft shell for my Rainer trip up the Kautz route. When I was considering these pants I was a little worried about the sizing because a lot of people stated they ran a bit small. Since I was short on time I decided to order the large. When I received them I was surprised the large was too big for me. I returned them and went down to the medium which was a perfect fit. I wore these pants for 4 days on Rainer and loved them. They have good stretch and excellent material. The side pocket was nice for storing my phone to snap the occasional photo. Also having the pockets zip was nice so nothing fell out during the climb. If you are in the market for a soft shell pick these pants up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for all snowy alpine adventures Great for anytime I'm wearing crampons, winter in the Wasatch and summer in the Cascades. Cuts the wind, nice and warm but wearable if temps rise a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable, breathable, warm. Bought for mountaineering and backcountry skiing (off-season or winter use). Fantastic for these applications; too hot for summer.

Does the waist fit true to size or are they tight/loose. I’m torn between M and L. 

Asked by: michaelwithabicycle
Hiya michaelwithabicycle, thanks for your question! I've heard that the waist of this pant runs on the small side so I suggest sizing up to a large since that is your concern. Hope this helps!

How do these hold up for skiing?

Asked by: TSherry
Hey there, Thanks for reaching out to Moosejaw! As a technical pant that's weather-resistant, including water and wind, and them being quick-drying and breathable AND are not to mention made specifically for alpine adventures, I'd say the Outdoor Research Cirque pant hold up splendidly well while skiing!
