Rated 5 out of 5 by Karissa from Finally, a close fitting pant that climbs well I am constantly looking for soft shell pants that have a slim, athletic fit and are generally tapered into the leg with an articulated knee. This is the pant and I am in love with it. The fabric is a good light/medium weight. It works well in both warmer and cooler temperatures. The schoeller fabric w/nanosphere feels durable and repels water. The only thing that I might miss is a small crampon kick patch, however I plan to use these mostly for alpine climbing. I am 5'10", 129lbs, 33-26-36.5/37 and the Small fits well in the length, thigh, and hip but there is about at 3/4 inch gap in the waist. Solid pant, super stretchy, great for climbing in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephanie from Flattering and comfortable Order a size down or you might get diaper butt but if you get the right size they (unlike most winter clothing) look absolutely fantastic. Theres enough room to fit a base layer comfortably and the material is stretchy allowing for maximum range of movement. As a geologist I spend a lot of time doing field work, and Im so glad to have found something that manages to be pragmatic in cold (or warm) weather without making me look like the michelin man. Cant wait to take these with me to Greenland! P.S. The customer service Ive received from Black Diamond has been excellent. Everyone I have spoken to gets back to you promptly and is extremely helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Julie from Great fitting pant for warm or cool weather I bought these to replace a 7-year old pair of soft shell pants that had become a baggy, rain absorbing mess. These are a great, slim-fitting change of pace. I've been wearing these pants climbing in both warm and cool conditions without overheating or feeling frozen. They're very stretchy and don't restrict movement, and the waist is high enough that it doesn't interfere with my harness or backpack waist belt. The material is bomber, and hasn't shown any wear even after some alpine abuse. They stretched out a little bit after the first day of use, but have since held the same shape and size. The only improvement I'd like to see is an included flat belt or drawstring to keep them from getting pushed down when wearing a pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mariah from Versatile, flattering alpine pant = LOVE. This is by far my favorite soft-shell pant that I've ever worn. They have excelled in weeks of alpine climbing through a range of warm and cold temps of the BC coastal range, Cascades, and Rocky Mountains, to high-output nordic skiing too. I'm a long-legged lady (5'10" 140 lbs), and was pleased to have these meet my length needs with a size S. Quite flattering, too. They do stretch out with wear, and a belt is a must. Just purchased a second pair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NC hiker from Ran small, wide legs These were the 3rd-4th pair of pants I've ordered from Black Diamond. The fit was small with WIDE legs near boots. Sent them back was not what I expected. Good quality tho, guess it depends on what you want to use them for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emily from Great fit and breathability Really love these pants! They are well fitted and breathe well. My only frustration with these pants is that the inner ankles are not reinforced like most alpine pants. The lightweight material rubs on my mountaineering boots, and therefore wears quite quickly. However, small gaiters do the trick. All in all, great purchase and I'll probably even get another pair!
