Ferocious in the Ferrosi.

Outdoor Research made its Women's Ferrosi Softshell Pant with lightweight, durable, and highly breathable fabric for extra comfort during your hiking and rock climbing adventures. Its low-profile waist fits smoothly under a harness, and its tricot waistband reduces chafing as you climb. The articulated knees bend and flex easier when you're scrambling on the approach or stretching for a difficult toe hold.

  • Weather-resistant pants ideal for long approaches and alpine climbs
  • Softshell fabric is breathable, stretchy, and water-resistant
  • Smooth waistband practically eliminates chafing as you climb
  • Articulated knees and inseam gusset promote mobility

So close!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 8

I don't consider myself hard on my clothes or gear, but after owning these just a few months, they are already falling apart. Seam in the back split on a backpacking trip, which I dutifully stitched up. I've worn them hiking a few times since and now see small holes forming in "high traffic" areas. The material is just too flimsy, which is a shame since I really liked how they fit and feel. Maybe I just got a bum pair, but I've never had a pair of outdoor pants fall apart this quickly on me.

Love These Pants!

I wore my new pants over the long Memorial Weekend and hiked, caved, and sat around in them. They’re lightweight, comfy and easy to keep clean. I just got another pair in a different color for a longer trip across country.

These are my "everything" pants. Have fun and enjoy great adventures in these!

OMG too comfortable....

  • Size Bought: 6

in between sizes so i bought both 4 and 6 in black and night (so 4 pairs). i intended to keep only 1 pair but ended up keeping both 6's. they are so comfortable, light, stretchy and breathable that you can wear them to sleep.. however the crotch is on the short side but sizing up when you are in-between def helps. blue is such a pretty color. havent tried in the wild yet so cannot comment on durability or water repellence (so far seems it can only hold very light shower)

Many thanks for your review! Happy Trails!

My favorite hiking pants, hands down

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 8

I love everything in the Ferrosi line, but especially the pants and capri's. Compared to my Patagonia Guide pants, I like the fit and comfortable waistband of these pants better.

100% agree. LOVE my pants and capris. Shorts too!!

fantastic

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 12

I really like these pants and just got my second pair. They are a nice, stretchy and lightweight fabric. Inside the waist is a really soft brushed fleece material which adds even more comfort. The drawstring waist means you don't need to pack a belt. They do well to shed a light rain and are my go to spring hiking and camping pants.

Appreciate the review, Lisa!

I like these

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 4

i wore these on a three-hour flight, to set up base camp and on three subsequent days of day-hiking. I like them. The waist could be a bit more structured but a belt helps. Dirt brushes off so they stay pretty clean, and they're quick dry. Conditions were pretty windy for a couple days and I don't remember my legs being cold. They also don't take up much room in my bag, and they fit fine over hiking boots. I thought the length may be too long but no problem. Thumbs up.

Many thanks for the review, Diane!

Good Pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 12/Reg

I bought these over the winter and while they have a good stretch to them they run a little small. I couldn't fit anything in underneath them even a thin layer. Alone they aren't super warm and while stretchy isn't loose enough for me to do yoga or extra bending rock climbing. I like the shape for generally wearing and they are comfortable, but not quite what I had expected.

Thanks for the review, Jessica!

What is the rise?

Hey Caroline,

It appears these pants are Mid-Rise! Hope that helps!

Yes, Thank you Caroline and Hunter - mid rise is correct.

do these pants have a lining for warmth...

do these pants have a lining for warmth in colder temperatures?

No, they do not. Only a thin layer of nylon softshell material. Great for aerobic sports year round as you can layer under them as needed. I love these pants - the men's version that is!

Hey Brian...in my experience, inventory questions can sit idle on the item page forever. Click on the gray "Chat Now" box on the upper right of the screen. A customer service rep will have an answer for you immediately.

Hey Brian, The Ferrosi Pant has not been ordered, but the Ferrosi short has. Another option might be the Cirque Pant, a bit more bomber (double weave as opposed to a single weave soft shell construction) with scuff guards on the inner lower leg. Cool pant!
