Winter Wander is King
I bought these pants for snowshoeing and also got a pair for my wife. I read an endless amount of reviews for soft shell pants and decided on these. They are GREAT!! I love how comfortable they are. The fabric is amazing for comfort and movement. I love having the ability to wear a belt with them. I wore a mid-weight base layer under them and was plenty comfortable. They also do a great job stopping the wind. I am very pleased with the fit and quality of these pants. I am 5'8 and 175lbs. I have roughly a 33w and 30 inseam. I originally bought the medium short. They were snug. I returned them and ordered the large short. Glad i did. They fit perfect and are roomy. Altrec was also very easy to work with to do the return and repurchase.

I made a study of hiking pants and came to the conclusion that these were the best on the market. After my purchase, my expectations were met and exceeded.

Get these now!
Excellent trousers all around. I'm 6'1" 225 lbs and the large long fit great. Just the right amount of stretch anywhere you would need it. Very comfortable material, drapes well and generally look great. I was hesitant at the price but you get what you pay for and these are worth getting especially if they are on sale.

These are the best pants I've ever owned. Breathable and comfortable. Strong material. I am 5'10 and 155lbs and the medium short fits me very well with a little slack in the waist, which is fine I just wear a belt. These pants are wind resistant. I have not been able to wear in cold conditions yet but I believe they will be warm. I recommend these pants.

excellent 3 season pant
bought these a year ago in black...skiid, snowshoed all winter in upstate NY with them, as well as wearing some other soft shell pants from OR and Mountain Hardwear....The Winter Wanders are as comfortable, soft, durable and warm as any I own....a minimum of bells and whistles (zipper ankles would be nice and zip front pockets) but the drawcord hems stow out of the way, and the back zip pockets and side cargo pocket function well...in short...when I saw Altrec have them on sale again....I couldn't resist a 2nd pair in gray......great bang for the buck....highly recommended
