Kept me warm for a day

Took these for a spin in a colorado winter where they weren't needed to check fit and then up on Denali. The design made them a pain to put on with mountaineering boots on so I ended up not using them till summit day. We climbed from 14k to summit during a high wind warning (gusts 40-70mph at 17k) and these guys kept me pretty cozy through the long day. However on our return to camp I found several small holes on the hips, butt, and thighs which had leaked all of the down from inside the pant leaving it pretty much useless after that climb. Not sure how it happened but I guess that on the few times we hide behind rock formations to get out of the wind the pants tore rubbing against the rock. Which is still weird since my climbing partner had zero such tears on his puffys and my top had none as well. Didn't do any sitting or climbing on the rock so I'm rather disappointed how frail they turned out to be from just leaning up against it, not to mention only getting a day of use out of pants that cost half a grand. Never again.
