I like mountain hardwear pants. They are ideal for hiking in winter and summer .They have a comfortable fit at the hip and waist because they can stretch . The bottoms are a little wide but there are draw strings to reduce them for a better fit .The fabric looks durable and thicker than typical hiking pants.

Love Mountain Hardwear Pants
This is my fourth pair of Mountain Hardwear pants and just love them all. All have great fit (but they do run small, so I order one size larger) are very well made and are comfortable (while looking great). Waists that are adjustable and three different lengths available mean these pants are made to fit anyone. Designed for active outdoor wear, pockets are positioned for easy access (we are kayakers, so having pockets that can be accessed while sitting are a great advantage). Good, solid construction with quick-drying, breathable fabric makes these my "wonder pants." The winter wander pants repel water and have fleece lined side pockets. Note: if you are out in really chilly weather, you'll want a base layer underneath as these pants do not have extra lining.

Great pant for Winter outdoor activities
I am very pleased with this purchase; these will work great for any type of outdoor activities in the Winter, including hiking, x-country skiing, or just playing in the snow. The fit is very flattering/slimming (even for a pear-shaped woman), yet the stretch in the fabric makes them very comfortable and easy to move in. The waistband hits at, or just below, the natural waist, but that makes sense for this type of pant. The fabric is very durable and substantial without feeling heavy while wearing them. The "swishy-ness" factor (the sound that most nylon products make) is in the low-moderate range...an acceptable amount for me. As stated on the website, the size does run a bit small....if in doubt, or if you plan to layer underneath, then definitely size up. I wanted a longer inseam, so I purchased the 6 Long, which has an inseam of around 33 inches.

I hope Mountain Hardware continues to make these pants because they are so comfy and fit very well. They fit a little larger but the adjustable waistband helps alot. I recommend these pants!
