Stance Belay Insulated Pants is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Nordic Warm-Up pant I know these are sold as a belay pant, but I bought them to use as a, 'warm-up,' layer for nordic skiing. I am old, it takes me a bit to warm up, and get in a good rhythm. These pants are excellent to wear over your ski pants until you legs get loose. Not super compact, but it's still worth taking them along in you pack to pull on at lunch break! Worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly toasty belay pants I used to always fear "sending temps" because the belays were so painfully cold. These belay pants make such a huge difference! They're super lightweight, stuff easily into my crag bag, and fit over my climbing pants in a snap. Probably one of the best purchases I made in 2018. Great work BD!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Belt failure I purchased these a couple weeks ago for a winter camping trip and was very excited to use them but as it started getting cold and I threw them over my shell layer the adjustable belt ripped right out of the waistband when I tried to tighten it, with very little force applied. I like the pants overall but without the belt they just fall off your waist as they are a bit over-sized intentionally to accommodate multiple under layers. Check the function of the belt before using these otherwise you might get caught with your pants down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super warm, great features. I am a 5'9" 145 lb woman, and the size Small fits well over climbing pants. These pants have kept me cozy on cold desert boating and climbing trips. The full zip is crucial. The insulation is great. One thing I wish for is some thicker material on the butt to protect when I'm sitting on sharp things, but thus far not a deal breaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy pants Bought the 2017 model, awesome pants, zero problems or issues. Perfect with a baselayer or a light hiking pant. Lots of hours in these pants in Alaska, Washington, chamonix and Austria

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great overlayer These are great for expedition camp at night after the day is done. Will be great over my snowpants to get extra insulation, especially when not moving around much. To others that thought these maybe weren't full zip, I assure you they are, you just have to zip them up, not down. Maybe someday, they'll make the zippers go both ways, but for now, unzip from the cuff to the waist.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not much here I'm not sure what these pants are meant for. They are extremely baggy and oversized so not good for layering, no stretch so not good for climbing or hiking, and very little insulation. These might be ok to throw over your climbing pants while waiting for your turn to boulder or climb in 40 degree weather but anything below freezing without being active and these pants won't do much for cold weather protection. You'd be better off throwing a pair of sweatpants on while waiting your turn. They don't pack down well either so definitely not great for backpacking, alpine or technical situations.
