These Patagonia pants are pretty good. Great water proofing. The fit is really weird and the belt and buckle are horrible. I understand creating light seem-sealed European shell pants for super active mountain sports. However, a piece of this price level should include belt loops or at least a suspender option. It was hard to mimic skiing, climbing, hiking, and walking when I tried these on. The pant won't stay up during the car ride to the ski mountain. The cuffs barely fit over a ski/mountaineering boot and are very tight in the calf and lower leg. The quality of the materials for these pants is out of this world for light weight 4 season shells. I am having belt loop sewn on these at a alterations shop. Horrible idea with the cheesy "half belt".Its the type of belt for a bathing suit.
Breathable, warm, wind proof, water resistant, stylish pants. Also wasn't sure about the lack of front button, of snap. But this dual zipper is the great for writing your name in the snow without having to unbuckle.
Travel from the backcountry to the big city and back. These pants are a great companion for the journey, the superb quality mixed in with the its versatility will have you wondering why you hadn't purchased them sooner.
