Rated 3 out of 5 by frickin' huge bought an XL long. I"m 6'4, 220lbs and I was swimming in these in both the waist and the legs. like the product quality but returned them for something else. February 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bomber Pant on and off the resort I bought the Snowpocalypse Pant last January; My first time using them on a ski trip the fly zipper seam pealed apart. Needless to say I was pretty disappointed. I skied them for the trip, sent them back via their warranty and received a new pair within two weeks. I live at a ski resort in Colorado and have put them through extreme weather at 12,000 feet. Now living in Sun Valley, I've used them on the coldest of days (with wool long underwear) and stayed warm, on rainy days, and through awesome snow storms! This pant can definitely hold up to all sorts of weather. I'm about 5'5", 125lbs, with a 29" inseam. I bought them in small, short. It's a smidge long still, but with ski boots on it doesn't drag. This pant is a great shell, with great fabrics. It's light, versatile, and would recommend it as an on mountain and backcountry pant. January 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome pants... love them. Bought the pants at a recommendation of a MH employee... thank you, thank you, thank you! These are clearly pants designed by smart people who spend time in the snow and are perfect for my needs of a durable, highly breatheble pants for a variety of activities. So far, I have used them for: snowboarding, snow shoeing [on- and off-trail], ice climbing... fantastic. The fabric (DryQ Elite) breathes very well -- I generate a tremendous amount of heat and sweat and these pants took it all and kept on going. In fact, the only place that got a bit wet and only on the outside is my sweat condensing on the outside of the pant's zipper. My skin and base layer remained dry even as my top was soaked in sweat and my head was steaming in the cold air. I was dry and I was warm. If you need proof of the amazing “power” :-) of the pants and the fabric – during one of my outings I had, in my thigh pocket, a paper map – it was dry from snow, sweat, water, random spittle from my efforts. Pants’ zipper along the entire leg allowed for great venting but I could see how in colder weather this could get a bit nippy and might require a more robust base layer. Fabric so far is durable but to be safe, I have worn gaiters on all occasions where sharp items might contact the pants. Only nit and it’s a minor one is that the pant’s waist and only waist appears to run a bit large – I bought XL – length is good, built-in gaiters, fit most boots well, inseam was perfect but without a belt that I bought separately, I’d have lost my pants. Thigh pockets are deep and easily accessible. Love the pants but wish they: came with a belt and had reinforced seat and knees akin to inner ankles. January 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great resort or backcounty! Great quality pant for both resort or backcountry. Side zip was the selling point for me for backcountry touring. The only reason I gave it a "Good" for Function is that the front pockets are a bit small and there are no hand pockets. These pants are lightweight and durable. Great boot gaiter! No real reason to not get these pants. Follow their sizing chart. Usually a large but went with medium and it fits great. January 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by These pants are apocalyptic I am very impressed by these pants! Boot packing and skinning around in the slack country, I have not felt clamy. DryQ is my new shell fabric of choice and I am looking to replace my Arc'teryx pro shell soon... I am 5'9" 175Ibs and the Medium/Medium fits great. Just loose enough for mobility, but not so baggy that I look like I ride rails all day. December 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Runs a little big I first ordered a size medium (regular length)...since that is size I wear for every other manufacturer. I am 5'8", 155 lbs. I was swimming in the mediums that I received. Even with the elastic Velcro waist adjustments, there was still plenty of room, and it bunched up in the back. I ended up sending them back for the Small size. Glad I did. They fit great. I've worn them about a half a dozen times skiing this season and they seem to work great. They breathe really well. I really like the gators. They are the perfect size for getting them over your ski boots, but not too tight. The rear pocket is a bit small. I have trouble getting my wallet in and out of it. They seem pretty strong and bomb proof. Looking forward to some serious skiing in these this season. December 7, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Winter Pant I gave these a try for a few seasons in Tibet. Granted, it was more to fight the cold and up to 30 mph winds, rather than snow, but they performed superbly. The built in gaiters are a great touch, and helped keep my boots dry when I needed to run across a recently-thawed stream in the spring. The material has proven to be very durable, and unlike the majority of my gear, I've been able to use these for more than a couple of months. In the winter, they helped keep my legs toasty in temperatures dropping down to the single digits (Fahrenheit) while not being so stuffy to cause sweat during activity. Awesome overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweet! I'm 6'1, 150 lbs and the medium longs fit great. I just skied for 6 hours in ridiculously wet snow just outside of Seattle and stayed completely dry March 31, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Long? Really?! I'm a tall guy so I buy tall or long products. In general MH products fit me in the sleeve length department so I felt comfortable purchasing the the XL long version of these pants, with the stated inseam length of 34 inches, sight unseen. The XL long pair I recieved measured 31 inches when measured to the bottom of the snow cuff and just short or 30 inches at the bottom of the shell fabric. In my book that's a big difference when I'm paying the bucks I payed for this product. Otherwise the product is everything it says it is. If it was actually the advertized inseam length I would be giving it 5 stars. March 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bring Style to the Backcountry I've been using the pant inbounds for the season with good results. Warm, moves well, durable. Used for 5 days of backcountry skiing and snowmobiling in moderately cold conditions and always felt warm even sitting around during break time. Breathes well - never needed to open the vents even on long climbs with a mild layer underneath and never gets swampy. Best looking pants MH has put out - the high vis colors are great (try seeing a guy with black pants and a dark coat in a burn.) March 3, 2012
