Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect spring/fall pant I've put 100+ FIELD days on these pants in Western North Carolina - bush whacking through rhododendron for miles, scraping around granite slab, kneeling in muck for hours teaching and a lot of miles. I've put them through quite a bit, and love the pants. -They're a little warm for summer trips, but perfect for spring and fall when the temperatures stay cooler. -The non-kevlar fabric begins to pill around the crotch and butt. -The kevlar stands tough through anything, it still hasn't shown any signs of wear. My only real con is the belt system. It fell apart within my first 2 trips of the season, so 14 days. There is some type of fabric within the belt holes that have fallen apart, and the buckle doesn't stay so I ended up having to tie a back-up knot to make it stay. I've since replaced the belt with my own tubular webbing. If they fixed this system and made the front pockets deeper - I wouldn't have any complaints. Still highly recommend it, because the flaws don't necessarily compromise performance.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from wierd fit these were for my husband and they would be great for canyoneering with the cordura in places where you would get abrasion from rock (which he wants) and nice fall/winter weight hiking material. However they are short in the waist area and so quite uncomfortable (low riding,) tight and short legs (even though he ordered long) and heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boss man pants I love these things! I bought these pants and wore them on a 18 day backpacking excursion in the Wind River mountain range in Wyoming in may. For anyone who has been in the rockies in may you know it can either be summer or winter, and usually that depends on which side of the sleeping pad you wake up on. But seriously, these pants got me through slush, snow, hour upon hours of post holing, and sleeping in frigid temps, and yet not sweating while attempting a summit push on a 40 degree day. My only complaint is that they fit a little tight in the thighs, which would make it difficult to layer much other than long johns underneath. Other than that I can't imagine having a better pant!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent hiking pants. I picked these up for backpacking and they are great. Very comfortable, very low to no restriction of movement. They breathed very well and stayed cool enough during the hottest portions of the day. The strap/belt is a little narrow, I had no issues with it, but might have preferred it to be more robust.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dragon Pant These Pants are bad A. I bought them right before climbing Mount Shasta. When coming down, we glissade. The protection on the butt, knees, and ankles was perfect and there wasn't a mark on them even after glissading thousands of feet. When I was purchasing these pants I read other reviews regarding the buckle and flipping it around. When I opened the bag I noticed he was right, I switched it around and it took 30 seconds. Oh, I am 6'3 210 lbs. So if you are long limbed like me you will need the long inseam. Enjoy!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Impressions First run with these pants was a success. Post holed in knee deep snow, climbed about 5 pitches of ice and put in a full day moving in the alpine with strong winds and temps in the teens. Other than a small nick I put above the kick patch with my crampon there are no signs of wear yet. The reinforced areas are great and definitely increase the durability. Good movement and wind resistance. Before purchasing, I noticed everyone's complaints about the belt buckle. I experienced the same problem with mine at first until I noticed the belt loop was threaded backwards into the buckle. Once I reversed this, I experienced no problems. I am hopeful these pants will stand up to the alpine abuse they say they are designed for. I am looking forward to putting them to work this spring.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Pant, Bad Belt I am 6'3", 155lbs and wear a pant size 33W x 34L and the Medium Long fits absolutely perfectly. Good: The softshell fabric is stretchy and breathable, yet wind resistant and held up well against moisture during my springtime post-holing excursion. I get cold easily and these surprised me at how well they insulated against the elements. The leg cuffs when fully zipped shut fit slightly loose on my Asolo Alta Via Mountaineering boots, but still a good cut for using crampons. I kicked the Kevlar kick patch a few times with my spikes and couldn't seen any damage at all. Bad: The built in belt slips like the dickens. I have no hips and usually have a pretty tight belt. I could not keep this thing tightened to save my life. I am looking for a replacement buckle that will not slip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants! Great pants for a multiple of uses. Have used them as my go to ski tour pants and they function very well - I've gotten slightly sweaty on long slogs however it's not problematic. The reinforced area are awesome, kneeling or sitting in snow is no problem at all. I've also worn these under waders for some winter fishing and they provide good warmth while in the water and are perfect for the hike/approach. My only constructive criticism on how these pants go from great to perfect: 1) Add some small venting ports. 2) Get rid of the built in belt. It twists and turns and doesn't stay taught - I took mine out and replaced it with a small friction belt which works great. All in all I highly recommend these pants for any kind of cold weather play you can think of.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product. Room for improvement at this price. Overall, these are great pants and I'm glad that I purchased them. I've already recommended them to friends, but there are just a few things that have kept me from giving a five-star review. One is the built-in belt. Just wearing these pants without a heavy pack on, the belt has slightly loosened on its own, so it could be improved with a stronger locking mechanism/clasp like other Mountain Hardware belts provide. Second, I would really like to see the built-in clips with adjustable cuffs at the end of the pant legs. This option has been available on Mountain Hardware pants in the past, which really is great for approaches and climbs with ash/dust without the need for gaiters. For a $160 product, I was hoping this would be included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What we loved in the Chockstone active pant, nothing we hated The Chockstone midweight active pant was my daily hiker, 14er pant, backpacker, and go-to casual pant. The only critical thing I had to say about it was durability. While I didn't tear it, fabric got thin and bunched in areas of high wear like the seat (Especially after "glissading" at 14,000 ft, really not what they were designed for). This pant is going to nail that. I'm wearing them now and they have made a couple changes that I'll highlight on compared to the chockstone active pant: 1. Durability. Obviously we have kevlar in areas of high abuse, but the general fabric also feels a bit more sturdy this time 2. Fit. Fit is very improved over the chockstone. More room for your manly parts, but also more tapered legs for a more modern look, and less rubbing if you hike with your legs a bit close together. Yet they have zippers on the bottom cuff to make room for bigger boots (They can fit over my ski boots with zipper un-done!) Other notes not in general description: The bottoms of the actual pockets are sewn into the inner lining of the pant. This makes it so a pocket/it's materials are not moving around on your thighs, and the pockets don't get bunched up after a wash. It also means that there's an extra chunk of fabric on that seam. Noticable but not annoying. Belt system is interesting. You pretty much need to set it at it would normally be and then leave it alone (except fastening and un-fastening). You have to pull the slack out like a normal belt but then tuck that excess into a tight channel of fabric, would be a pain if you did it every time. Designed mostly to set the slack you want and then just hitch/unhitch.
