Men's Rifugio™ Supreme Pant is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all around hiking pant. This pant is light weight and of high construction quality. Several small features makes these pants easy to wear with or with out a belt. The DWR works well and the pants allow for easy and fluid mobility during activities. The only thing is that these pants are more fitted than most other hiking or soft-shell pants that I have worn. Not a bad thing in any applications but something to think about if you cannot try them on. In my opinion less material is less to carry, to pay for, or to get snagged on something. One of the best hiking pants I have owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants I am 6'3", 185lbs and always fit into 34/34s. These pants were not an exception and fit very well, almost like slacks. I did find it necessary to wear a belt with them, which is unfortunately not provided. I found the construction of the pants to be very durable, after countless snags from branches of fallen trees there is no visible damage. That being said i did have the secondary fly button fall off before i made it to the trail. Outside of that, i have no complaints and found the pants to be very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Sweet... Based upon the other reviews, I was somewhat unsure of what to expect. However, I have no reservations in recommending these pants for peak bagging, trekking, climbing, traveling or any other adventurous sojourn. With the athletic and functional fit, it's near perfect for me. Feel is very lightweight and comfortable but not cheap/too thin - solid balance. Function is on point - perfectly placed side pocket. The back pockets are very innovative in their design - certainly suited for the backpacker. Overall, a minimalistic design but feature rich where it matters most. A+.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not the greatest. They are light weight. almost too light weight. if you dont wear anything underneath you can see it all. paper thin and durable against maybe a pillow. the fit is poor as almost all Mountain hardwear pants are. Mountain Hardwear Jackets are second to none. I wish I can say the same about the pants. I am 5'10" 165lb with a 32 waist and thats what I ordered. These are huge around the waist and get larger with time. Its like wearing a rubber band. when they stretch they dont go back. Mountain Hardwear please make your pants fit true to size.everything about the size is wrong. waist, length, everything. military pants should be the only pants that are made to fit 3 different waist sizes not technical gear with a premium price tag. the technology is there but the fit needs a lot of work. I currently own the winter wander pants, the Finder pants and these. all are supposed to be the same size and everyone is different. not even close. I only have them for the materials used. In case your wondering why I keep buying them, I received the the other 2 pants as a gift and these pants are the only ones I purchased hoping the price tag would reflect a little better quality and fit. I was wrong. any suggestions on something that fits great and is functional for hiking (off trail). Apparently everyone is used to technical gear not fitting properly and they are ok with that. I can care less if they are lime green I just want them to fit just like my trusty $30 jeans. The type of pants where belts are optional, your not waiting for a flood or pulling your pants up because the bottom is dragging under your shoes, the kind of pants that feel like they are made for you. I understand everyone is different, but at least get it close. Offer a more exact fit like every other clothing company and you will have a customer for life. Again this is just concerning the pants. I also own several jackets and am very happy with all of those. This is not just a Mountain Hardwear problem as almost all mountain tech clothing companies seam to miss this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb fabric The fabric of these pants are tough, stretchy, and breathable and overall I'm extremely happy with the purchase. Several quips. The zipper backing material was left too long allowing this fabric to rub, I cut it off to fit behind the protective flap and flame sealed the loose end to prevent chaffing. The fabric isn't very dirt repellent so the light color doesn't work well around humus and the rear pockets pucker a little (I wish the rear pockets didn't exist). The front pockets and zippered thigh pocket are well designed and executed as is the rest of the pant sans above mentioned. The one inch waist increments get my applause.
