Excellent pants. I wore these on each mountain during a trip to the Alps where I climbed 4 peaks in 6 days, including the Matterhorn and two other 4000 meter peaks. I used long underwear with them on the Matterhorn climb and honestly I could have gone without them. If you are always moving, as on an alpine climb you generally should be, then these pants are excellent. I have also used them doing serious outdoor work and have found them to be fantastic in every way.
"Lightweight everyday great looking pant"
Great pant for light cool weather, and light mist. Ultra comfortable and dries quickly, I love my new everyday pant. For the "cotton kills" crowd this is a great replacement. Excellent design, very light weight so in very cold weather expect to cool quickly unless wearing some poly pro base layers. Thank you moosejaw!
They fit great, the pockets are huge and zippered (great for travel), the material is stretchy and apparently very durable to top it all off. The material is very thin and feels somewhat delicate. Great pant.
"Great pants for backpacking, hiking, camping and good enough for casual wear too!"
I was a little hesitant when looking at these as they are $169. WTH? For a pair of pants? Can they be that good? But I had a gift card so I ordered them. I have had them for a year now- I wore them backpacking in the desert and the Sierras and the local mountains, on day hikes, and camping. I wore them during a 4 hour hard rain and pea sized hail. They did wet through pretty quickly, but since I was still moving they were not cold. Once it stopped raining (I was still hiking) they dried out in about 30 minutes. I've also worn them to family gatherings and even to work when nothing else was clean. They have been washed at least 50 times and still look brand new. Yes, they are that good.
The Gamma LT pant is a good choice when light rain is expected. It repels water and dries quite fast. But it seems like the stretchy material lets the water seep in easily. When in rain, once you get your knees wet, the whole pant gets drenched in no time. I'd rather choose the Palisade (with a bottom layer if needed) and bring along rain pants. The Palisade wicks better, is tougher, and smoother on your skin.
I absolutely love these pants for hiking in the Cdn Rockies. They provide every feature I can imagine needing except for rain protection - but I'm smart enough to stop hiking & get under my shelter in the rain.
The mobility in these pants is excellent. They are great for high exertion activities in the cold. I have already used them for curling and to play hockey this winter. I plan to use them for jogging and sailing in the spring time.The fitment of the pants is superb. There is quite a range of adjustment in the waist. The pant legs have a good amount of room without being baggy. My only complaint is that they do seem to run long. It would be nice if Arcteryx offered more inseams for the pants. I had to get the pants hemmed up several inches.
these are a great pair of soft shell pants they are alittle pricy but really nice. i thaught they would be alittle thicker then they are but for the trail on a warmer day these are perfect. they are very water repelant, i wore them on a boat when it was pouring rain and they kept me dry going 25 knots for almost and hour which is good since even my gortex jacket let some water in that day. just make sure you wash them with a soft shell wash to keep the water repellancy
I actually used these pants during a 14 hour hike in Interior Alaska (near Healy, AK) last month. It was between -5 and 5 degrees. I wore only a next to skin layer underneath.Granted, I was moving the entire time. If I had been sitting still in those temps, they would not have been sufficient, as they are not meant for those conditions. But, I was still impressed. I wore them because I knew I would be constantly moving and these pants are extremely comfortable, stretchy and moisture shedding.I have not used these in warmer temperatures but am curious as to how the fabric will perform in them.Great fit (slim) and look much better than in the picture.
