Warlow Pant in Alps It has only been used for one trip but I wore them for 5 days around the Monte Rosa in the Alps and they were great. Functional and comfortable. Kept me dry during a mist and light rain. Dried quickly. Warm in 20 F degree mornings and not too hot in the blazing sun.Wish it had more than two front pockets. A zipped back pocket and another front pocket on thigh would make this an ultimate hiking/climbing pant. I would also like having a built in small belt.Size of waste is larger than I require (34) but the long length is great. I bought a large.All in all, very happy with them after this first set of climbs. August 31, 2013
A highly technical pant The pant was bought for xc skiing. The design gives ample room for unrestricted movement, the stretch of the fabric facilitates comfort. the fabrics are also windproof and light weight.The fit is good. Recommend to purchase. August 2, 2013
Great Pants These pants are awesome. I took an alpinism course through the American Alpine Institute last summer and the pants held up just fine. I take these pants rock climbing, hiking and caving. They will last through some abuse. They will stretch slightly, but I think that is to be expected. I am also very skinny. I have 30 in. waste and wear a small. Totally worth it - if you wait for a sale :) December 6, 2012
Best hiking pant? After I purchased these I was a little skeptical about how they would perform in mildly wet conditions reading other people's reviews. I can attest, they are an amazing hiking pant. First time I wore them was also my first time up to camp Muir on Mt. Rainier, it was November 10th so there was a TON of snow up there already. It became white out conditions and snowed all day long but I didn't have to put on my shell pants or gaiters, my legs not only stayed very warm with just a base layer, but very dry as well. These pants are also very comfortable (I'm 6'3 and 175lbs, athletic build) I'm almost tempted to wear them as my everyday pants now. Yes, they are a little spendy but in the long run if you hike or climb a lot like myself these are totally worth it! November 18, 2012
Good pant, one weakness. The Good:-Lightweight-Super stretchy-Fairly wind resistant-Good fit-Minimalist-Belt loopsThe Not So Good:-Not very water resistantI recently experienced some adverse weather on the Wattzmann traverse in southern Germany. I understand that softshells are not supposed to be waterproof and I don't expect that they will be. That said, I was surprised at just how fast my legs became completely soaked. I might as well have been wearing cotton pants.This is entirely different than my experience with my MHW softshell jacket (model is no longer made but is comparable to G50 or Brono). The jacket is very nearly waterproof. Granted it is not as light weight, but I feel that a good softshell item should repel water well and only become saturated with prolonged exposure.I am giving these pants an overall good review because I think they got the design aspect completely right. However if I am going to shell out this much for softshell pants I'd like to see more water resistance. Otherwise I'll just roll with a less expensive cotton pant and drag along a hardshell.

solid design with room for some improvement Finally outdoor pants for us tall people. I tried these pants in their regular length and determined that - like so many similar outdoors products - they were too short. I decided to order a pair in long size (about 34”) and they were a perfect match. The design is minimalistic so there are only two front pockets and it would be nice if one side pocket on either left or right leg existed. So there is nothing hanging around, no straps, bulky pockets etc. Straight to the point, slim, stretchy and with adjustable leg opening to accommodate boots. Another nice feature is belt-loops. I don’t like outdoors pants that come with integrated belts (those belts are generally weak, don’t hold well and are rather annoying). You can use your own belt but beware that you cannot use wider belts. So if they could make belt loops a bit bigger so that wider belts can pass that would be great.Color is charcoal gray, which is nice and neutral but a couple of other color options would be nice as well. Finally the price. At $150 they are a about twice as much as equivalent competitive products (for example by REI). Given that they are not convertible pants I don’t see how they can justify such a high price. Overall these are very good pants that can be great with a few small improvements and lower price.

Great product (though not fully tested yet!) I purchased these specifically for an upcoming August trip to undertake the Fjallraven Classic in Sweden. Finding a pair of technical pants that I can get in a "short" (30" inseam) is tough but the ones I ordered (Med/Short) fit PERFECT. The materials and workmanship are top quality, and the "stretch" makes them non-restrictive and comfortable to boot.I'll follow up after the trek and let give a more complete review after they've been fully tested (Function review is "good" only because I haven't really tested yet) - but I figure if they're good enough for Ueli Steck, they'll work great for me.

No frills This is nice pair of pants. tailored legs with zips are really nice. i like the new gusset in the crotch that MHW used. It just extends from the crotch to the knees and not all the to the cuff. its a heavier weight than most soft shells and is quite durable on rock and easy to move in. shells snow well also, even though i'd like a pocket on the leg, these are sweet April 17, 2012
