I hiked all day in these, and weather changed from about 28 degrees pre-dawn to almost 60 mid-day. They kept me comfortable in the cold, and the two zippered seems on both legs kept me cool while trekking up a mountain in the mid-day sun. The hold up like granite. Also, I get endless compliments on these pants. Just awesome.I am a size 32, and ordered the 48. Perfect fit. Unfortunately, my inseam is only about a 32, and they are a bit long, but don't look too bad.
Being a True Blue American I am somewhat frustrated that I had to buy a Swedish product to have the best darn hiking pants available. Oh yeah they will cost you some ducketts, but what the hey, everything in my backpack is expensive gear, at least by my budget. I do a lot of snowshoeing, winter hiking, and high country adventures in Northern Rookies, these britches really help me stave off the elements. Plus when things start to warm up I just unzip the upper and lower sections of the legs to vent the excess heat.The only drawback I have found is ordering the right size. I had to return my first order to get a smaller size. I would suggest that you use the sizing guide and then average the upper and lower numbers on your size scale to find your size. I ordered the 48 which is actually a size 32 U.S., Great fit and oh how comfortable. I think they fit better than an old girlfriend.
just got these pants in the mail today, and they are exactly what i have been searching for. i plan to use them for field work in the alaskan wilderness, and i know they will hold up to the test to be flexable and water resistant.
