Men's Seraction™ Pant is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for all activities These are my go-to shell pants for rain, snow, and wind in all seasons. As with all the Dry Q Elite gear, they breathe exceptionally well and are waterproof. The fit is great, with great freedom of movement without being baggy. And they are incredibly light they while still being burly enough for day-in day-out use. Best shell pant I've ever owned!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pants great at first.. The side-zips are great! Until your zipper breaks, especially if the pants sag, because the waist is near-tight-enough. If you sleep on your side, on a hard surface (cement), the zipper at the ankle, will bite right through the plastic zipper lead-in (on both sides).* I doubt that it happened when I was walking, because the cuff is too tight to the ankle, to sag to the ground, over my shoe. When the outer water-proof coating wears off, you will have a thin film of liquid, on the inside surface of the pants, in the rain. The pants are light-weight, and very breathable (steam) modulo any brand-new waterproof finish (heat). Think of these as the Direkt 2 tent, of pants. Also, works well to keep in the heat, of layers below. If you want thicker, or heavier weight, these are not the pants for you; I would suggest another brand with a thicker face-fabric thread. Lightweight, breathable; relies on moisture beading up on the outside of the fabric, to keep your inner garments from getting a shiny layer of water on them. I ordered XL, but I typically wear size large basketball shorts. The belt is all-the-way cinched, but the pants are just close to tight enough, to not sag. I've never wore them over my insulated ski pants, however. I am 5' 10", 180 lbs, with a belly that sticks out. I would order the Large, 30", or Large, 32" (inseam), next time; once the zipper lead-in broke, the zipper at the ankle splits open by itself, due to the shape of my ordinary running shoes. If XL, I'd probably go with 30". I haven't seen the size large pant-legs, so I don't know if these fit comfortably over loose-fit jeans, or insulated ski pants, or both. For warmth/long-lasting water-proof (note 2nd hyphen), I would go with a thicker face fabric, and try gore-tex. For light workouts, in higher temps, like your afternoon run, these are perfect; I would go with these. Don't grind your ankles on the sidewalk, by sleeping on your side. Machine tumble-wash warm, with ordinary detergent (Per Sil) takes the DWR off, after 20 washes. Tumble dry low. You need more insulation, than just sweat pants, below 46-41 degrees, or so. *Especially, if you think you're kicking around platic clips, from your tent's rainfly, when using it as an outer wrap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shell pant I wear a 36 inch waist. I picked these up in size Large and they fit perfectly. They are slightly tapered from the thigh down, which makes sense for a climbing pant. My intended use for these will be winter hiking/backpacking and these will exceed with a baselayer underneath them. I like the Velcro adjustment at the waist and the full length zipper on the sides for easy on/off. No pockets. Unfortunate but not a dealbreaker. My Quasar pants don't have pockets either. Just don't understand the need for the right leg thigh pocket as another person mentioned. You can't put your PLB or phone there but just enough space for a thin wallet or ID card at the most. Barely even for keys. I got them at a crazy good price and picked up three pair and expect them to hold up very well and to work for my intended purpose. Ample space in the thigh and good movement for my legs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A beast for alpine pursuits I really enjoy these pants. The legs are a little small. The waist is also a little small. I would actually recommend thinking in terms of "What size would my waist be after layering up on the mountain?" in order to get the size right on these. I have slid down glaciers, and they have held up. I do have several crampon holes, but I think every pant would succumb to that abuse. Overall, I am happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, breathable but warm (when needed) The pants fit tight on the boots even when the legs are completely stretched in a paragliding harness (I bought the long inseam for that purpose) and keep you dry while hicking with a light base layer but comfortably warm during a close to zero Celsius flight. Impressive.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good pants, just not for me Got a really good deal through another site that I couldn't pass up (for the solar yellow). Took them out once and they ripped lowering off of a ledge. They were kind enough to replace them (with the shark gray). I have used them twice since but now I have a hole wearing into the seat again. Seems they weren't meant to brush against Adirondack rock. They are light, thin, packable and breathable. They are really good to have when the temps are too high for the 3 layer bibs but I just don't trust them to hold up. I have a five day trip coming up and will be surprised if they survive. I have had great luck with other Dry Q products. Kepler Jacket and Heista Bibs have done me well, just can't see how these pants are suited to any kind climbing without being able to hold up to abrasions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won't work Like the product but won't work for my intended use. Wanted to use as ski pants but they won't fit over my boots. I was told I have 30 days to return. Could you email the info I will need to return these or can I go to the employee store in Richmond and just return them there?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Shells I bought these pants because I have expanded my outdoor activities into the alpine world. I wore these when I went and did Mt. Langley in Dec and I'll wear them for any other 14er I attempt this season and the next.. They worked like a charm, completely water proof, breathed well and were completely wind proof. I thought I was going to need to wear some sort of base layer pants during the day since the temps were below freezing but I didn't. The pants worked great to keep in the heat and the zippers were awesome when you wanted to let air flow through. Only thing I wish they had were pockets. But I like to put my hands in my pockets alot when I'm not actually hiking or climbing. For some people this wont be an issue. I'm 6'0 180 pounds and the mediums fit fine.
