Great pants, zipper issues
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
Overall, these are great pants. I tried the various pants of this style at the backcountry store and landed on this one, which is between the super flexible pant and bombproof inflexible version.
I’ve used them for skiing, backcountry/skinning, and ice climbing. They’re great for each of those applications in terms of flexibility and protection. Pockets and vents well placed.
A problem is the zippers catch often. Especially the standard pant pockets. I swapped out one, and experience the same on the replacement. It’s a pain when wearing gloves and you need something.
