Best Goretex Pants
Long story short, these pants are worth the purchase. The full length leg zips fit over my telemark ski boots - no problem. I waited a full season to write a review to make sure they would hold up and they do not disappoint. I spent many years wearing my old military goretex and finally decided to upgrade. I just got sick of wearing camo all of the... Read More time. I am hard on my gear and do not take gear reviews lightly. These will likely last just as long as my old military issued ones. These are great in the winter for keeping snow out of your boots. I still use a leg gaiter because I am just used to it, but if you have a high boot you probably don't need gaiters with this pant. If you don't play in the snow regularly, maybe the Calcite or other pant without the cuff is better for hiking.
Great pants that will keep you dry.
I bought these pants for a mountaineering expedition in Patagonia for 30 days. They did a wonderful job at keeping me dry in the snow and rain. The fit is a bit large but the velcro adjustments on the waste are great. The only complaint is that the side zippers are waterproof but the crotch zipper is not. After a day in the rain the only part of me... Read More that was wet was my crotch.
All around workhorse
I was looking for a hard shell to do everything. Alpine climbing, back country skiing, sitting in for long wet belays. These pants are beefy, with the right cut to be able to move in any direction. Stoked on the elastic inner for keep snow out of the bottom, and full length zippers that are welk covered at the top so no rubbing of the zipper on sen... Read Moresitive areas.
Seems like great pants, unfortunately, the Medium size (which I thought would fit) are on the tight side for me -- 5'9" / 165 lbs -- I usually wear 31-32 waist/ 32 inseam. While standing up and with wool underwear they're fine, however they're uncomfortable if I'm sitting down or if I try to put them on with regular pants u... Read Morender. I'll probably try on some L size ones and see if they work better for me.
Such a game changing pant
I got these pants after being tired of all of the other "ski" or "snowboard" branded pants that lose waterproofing after one season and just went with a brand that is all-arounder. With the 3L Gore-Tex and the taped zipper that goes all the way down the sides, this is an amazing pant that works well for resort or backcountry ski... Read Moreing/riding. These are some of the most affordable 3L Gore-Tex pants out there! Further, you know Patagonia stands behind their products and have some of the best ethics and quality. There are some other great quality products out there from other brands, but they do not have the ethics/standards that Patagonia holds for all of their facilities create these products. Stand behind more than your gear! I am 5'11", 150 lbs, and wear a size Medium for my 30/31" waist and 31/32" inseam and I use the elastic waistband-belt on the inside of the pants. Tree Olé!
