I spent a lot of time shopping for a pair of soft shell pants for Ice Climbing and back country skiing. Saw that these were on sale and figured I would give them a try. I have only used them once on the Ice. I wore them with a light merino base layer. It was 15 degrees first thing in the morning and standing around I was wishing I had worn a mid weight base. After the hike to the Ice that was the last I was chilly. The day warmed to the high 20's and I was never cold after the first thing. Really easy to move in and the stretch fabric is great.. Watch your crampons though. Pretty thin fabric.
