Men's Winter Wander™ Pant is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants for cooler temperatures Nice light/mid weight softshell pant. Heavier than a regular hiking pant. These pants have a decent amount of stretch so I think going about 1" waist size down is right- I'm a 33 and it feels like a 34+. If you want to put an extra layer then maybe true to size. They have a funky draw cord at the bottom of each leg. I haven't had them for too long to determine the durability, but softshell material is generally pretty rugged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable Tech Pants that work I purchased these out of a need for a decent winter hiking pant. The fit is decent and the gussetted crotch is very helpful with mobility in the mountains. The small bit of lining seems just right for 20 degree days moving. Possibly a poly long underwear layer on trips that require stopping for any longer period of time. I have not had a long history with them yet but so far they are great. The quality is like all Mnt. Hardware products. I expect to use them for many years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely tough and utilitarian Perfect for cold weather runs in rough terrain. Made of a heavy, durable softshell-style material. They will handle moderate to thick brush with no problem. I wear them right through the thicket with no snags or thorns poking through. The tuck-away draw cords at the bottom of the cuff are great! In very cold weather, a base-layer is worthwhile underneath. But they are my go-to pants for rough terrain. Only point of caution is the size. Had to go a size down on the waist. But, the smaller size fits like a glove. If you are considering these pants, take the time to call MHW and get specific sizing information on them. (Lastly, if you carry a pocket/ EDC knife, expect the thumb or finger flipper to wear a slight mark on the inside of the pocket where it rubs above the clip)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, shape-keeping pant I love these pants. I have both a black and a gray pair. They are sturdy, non-wrinkling and fit well in all regards. They can be worn from outdoor activities to casual dressy. They feel great. They've already become my go-to pant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just shy of the Ultimate pants. This is my second pair of the “Winter Wander” which tells you something. These are pretty rugged pants I have used for going commuting to the office as well as for ice climbing (with some pretty good thermal underwear of course). They have a nice stretch and I love the draw cord cuffs to keep the snow out but they are hidden so in the office they do not look like outdoor pants. My old ones had zip back pockets which I love. Unfortunately the new ones don’t but the side zip pocket is placed at a better angle. All around great pants for wearing a business shirt or in full ascent up a mountain. I am going to only 4 stars though due to the loss of the zippers in the back, if they added that back, they would be the ultimate pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and great quality I was looking for a trecking pant for an upcoming trip and found these to be exceptionally comfortable and very true to size. Being able to order specific waist/inseam measurements was a real bonus and yields all day comfort. Although most of the pockets are open limiting their usage, they're great for warming your hands or pocketing an mp3 player. The combination of an athletic cut and stretch material provides great flexibility without any extra material getting in the way. I'd definitely recommend these and will likely order a second pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most-Greatest-pants. EVER. I bought these pants in black. After a day, I got online and bought them in titanium as well. They stretch enough to be comfortable, but still feel trim and stylish. I wear them around town with a light 3/4 base layer. On mountain days I wear a powerstretch tight under them. On resort days I just put my gore shell on over them and hit the snow. I have never felt restricted in movement, and they have held up to 15+ days of skiing as a "mid-layer". At the end of the day, I take my shell off and drive home; and if I stop for apres, I don't look like a gaper in my shell. I get lots of compliments on the looks of the pants while "on the town", and I wear them to work without even thinking about it. If you are required to wear a suit to work, your mileage may vary; but in my case, business-casual, these pants are good-to-go. They are also quite good at winter-hiking, and shed water "well-enough" that I wear them with confidence on extended hikes in the PacNW, knowing that a little rain won't get me soaked. All-in-all, my favorite pants, and I'll probably buy another 2 pair to keep around until I wear through the 2 that I already have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size Down for better fit I'm with the previous reviewer, these pants are good but could've been great. They are certainly warmer than an average pair of softshell pants, and I love the built-in stretch and soft waist liner, but there is too much stretch built in, in my opinion. Within an hour of putting on what feels like a perfect fit, you'll be pulling up on the waist band or tightening your belt or both. It's a shame because they go from a perfectly comfortable "snug on your butt" fit too "baggy-assed wallet flapping." For best sizing, consider ordering down a size in the waist...length is normal. Also, as with all pants of this type, they are noisy when you walk. Other than that they're great though. Super comfy, sharp looking and perfect for going about town in cold weather.
