Reviewed by: voodoo-1 ,  Day Hiker , from Jackson, WY, USA

Summary:
I actually use these for layering in snowboarding, and fishing. . . anyways on with the review.
These are great fitting, and feeling pants. They're not too warm, but do their job as far as wicking moisture away from the body. Good length to the pants (I'm 6'6") which is normally a problem. Not too tight, in fact they're fairly loose which adds to the comfort. Only problems I've had with them is that even through layers, they're getting holes in the knees which happens to all my long underwear (from the snowboard pants rubbing against them).

Customer Service:
Patagonia is great. . .but not sure you'll use them for a pair of Cap underwear.

Summary:
These do what they are supposed to do, what else can I say. They keep me warm, wicks away moisture, and they are comfortable. I use them for skiing, winter fly fishing and winter mountain biking. They work.

Summary:
I tried these pants on on the first night i spent in the winds wyoming and i told my friend i lost them and i kept them on for the whole trip. I have three pairs now and i live in them even when walking around town in cool weather.

Reviewed by: Sean R. McInturff ,  Mountaineer , from Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA

Summary:
Lightweight capilene is the perfect base layer. It's light enough to go under anything. Yet it's heavy enough to wear as a primary insulating layer when one is on the move. And, of course, it's capilene, which is still the best of the wicking fabrics. The cuffs are long and tight, so you get full coverage without getting the pants under your heels. The waist is very high, so it is easy to stuff in a shirt tail and have it stay tucked. My one complaint is with the fly. Why is a fly necessary if one can just pull down the waistband? It's a superfluous feature (though it does happen to add an extra layer to an area that is particularly susceptible to wind-induced cold).
