Men's Desna Alpen™ Pant is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect all-around pant These are honestly my new favorite pair of outdoor pants, and are my go-to in my layering repertoire. The side-zip function is perfect for pulling on over boots, it packs up small for backpacking, but is still thick/warm enough for cold desert nights, and also to be a mid-layer under shell pants for skiing or mountaineering. They're great at temperature regulating, have a brushed outside so they don't snag, and with the large leg pocket can fit my map and compass, camera, and snacks all at easy access. I just took them down to Capitol Reef National Park for a 5 day backpacking trip, and they kept me warm in the desert night, but I could vent the pant during the day if it got too warm by just unzipping the sides. The brushed outside makes it so cacti, goatheads, and other prickely plants I brushed into didn't stick or stay, which is a refreshing change from most other tights/layers which will snag. All around awesome pants that I highly suggest!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stiff but relaxed? Haven't put these to use yet, but I have tried them on, exactly how I will be using them. Thin base layer first, then the Alpen Pant, then the Soft Shell pants. Winter layering system that I prefer. They are certainly as described. As in not so tight, tight. Although I would take out the second "tight." They are a relatively relaxed fit all around. Waist is a good fit. Length is proper. I ordered a large. I'm 5' 11" around 190 pounds. It's getting close to the holidays so maybe even 200 at the moment. I think I'd prefer a little bit of a tighter fit. But most importantly... For me.. Is, they aren't as stretchable as you'd like for mass leg movements. I mean, I'm not trying to be a ballerina or anything. But when you're really looking for that next footing and you have to contort to get them toes on that rock, these pants might be a bit restrictive. All in all though, I think these pants are pretty solid quality. And one other gripe, maybe not an issue for some. But the front around the crotch area has no slot for "quick restroom access," not a problem on the slopes. But kind of an issue on the trail. When it's zero degrees outside and you have to drop 2 of your 3 layers just to go number 1. That's no fun. Enjoy.
