Good Pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M/REG

Great pants. Very comfortable, breathable, and warm. Size is right., waist straps actually work to keep pants tight.

Since people come to the reviews to know the complaints, the two I have are also due to some rookie errors of my own.
1. Pants are strait legged instead of tappered, making them a great tripping trap for careless tired legs while descending the mountain with cramp ons.
2. Carry over from first complain, pants rip easily from cramp ons. Slight kicks tear holes.

The easy fix would be to wear gaiters, and I learned these pants, and my careless walking style, need gaiters because they are a little baggy around the boot.

Great pants.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: xl /reg

Just came in mail and I am wearing them as I write this review.I wear a 36W/ 32L pant and I bought the XL regular. The fit is good ,could use a little more room between waist and inseam. The length appears to be about 33/34 a bit long but should seat well over boots.My plan is to try them spring skiing this weekend in about 30 - 50 degree weather. The quality is great and the material moves freely. Will update later.

Great Outdoor Activity Pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm 6'4" and the pants are one of the few that are actually long enough to fit well with trail running shoes or boots. The lace hooks are a great feature. I have had several hikes in the rain, muddy, less than ideal conditions and they have kept the pants over my shoes and debris, snow, and rocks out. The material has proven to be highly water resistant and yet stretches and breathes (even without ventilation zips) well enough to still be comfortable. I have had them in single digit temps with tights and 60-70 degrees comfortably on the trail. Great pair of multipurpose pants to have in the bag.

Rock solid winter pants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M/Reg

Bought these for a late fall hiking trip to Yellowstone. I was glad I got them because it was snowing/freezing rain the entire week. These held up perfectly, I didn't need to take them off nearly the entire time I was there. The boot lace hooks were an unexpected plus.

One thing I will say is there are no explicit ventilation zips, which throw them out of the ski touring category. At that, $200 is a good chunk of cash for pants I will only use for hiking but these are crazy high quality and have a decent warranty.

Awesome review!

Great pant for hiking and snowshoeing

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I have used these on my last two hikes and the pants performed fantastic. One hike in the rain and the other in freezing temps both times I was warm and dry along with a under layer,very durable and not restrictive.

Norrona Svalbard Flex1 Softshell Pant

    Great Outdoor Utility Pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I have only used these for hiking and climbing, and have even started using them for casual use to keep my legs warm on cold nights, but these definitely are great pants to have. Warm, durable, water resistant, flexible/non-restricting, overall comfortable pants to wear. These are great for any outdoor adventure you may find yourself in. I suspect they would also make great ski/snowboarding pants, but I have yet to try them out in this function. This combined with the Trollveggen Stretch Tights would make an excellent snow combination I feel. I will try it out next time I get a chance to go skiing.
