Great pants for their intended purpose- light, waterproof pants. I researched and tried on various other light, waterproof pants, and I felt, and continue to feel that I made the right choice with these.

Awesome Waterproof Shell
December 28, 2010

This is a very thin waterproof shell, not your sturdy bushwhacking pants. I use them for climbing/hiking in winter when I don't foresee a lot of scrambling/bushwhacking, and biking in cold weather. Excellent mobility on the knees, even while pedaling on the bike, my ankles are never exposed. Love the fit of this pants, just like any other arcteryx pants.

EASY TO PACK
February 18, 2012

These pants are completely waterproof and extremely light. The cut is athletic and they’re slim fitting, so they can be a little tight if you layer something warm under them. The drawstring waist is a nice feature. The Gore-Tex Paclite seems to be fairly durable. They work great in rain or snow. And they let some air pass through so it’s not like wearing a plastic bag. I keep them in my backpack and never get caught unprepared. This is a super product that I’ve found to be superior to the competition.

Although it is not very thick, this one is very light. On casual occasions, it is enough in wind and water protect performance. I love this jacket.

Pros: Great design

Great lightweight shell.

Make sure you order big enough size to go over pants. I am 5'9 165 pounds and a large fits great.

Great lightweight Pants

Arcteryx quality product as usual. Fit is great, waterproof and breath well. Superlight weight - great for backpacking - compact and lightweight - good emergency storm protection. So far they have exceeded my expectations in terms of durability.

Alpha SL Pants
March 13, 2012

I picked these up for a friend to replace a pair that was ordered too small. The fit is pretty slim so had to go up one size for room to layer underneath in colder temps. Pants are waterproof, well made, and look good. Pac Lite Gore-Tex is durable and packable, but not as tough as Pro Shell. All in all this is a good product.

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Cons: Cost

Simple light-weight rain pants
September 21, 2009

These are great for long hikes. Very light, packable, and still have zips for getting them on over your boots.

Light shell pants that take up little space and keep you dry

Pants would have been perfect had there been a strap to run under my boots and easier access to pockets. Worked well in a downpour in the White Mountains.

Awesome Wet Weather pants
November 10, 2010

I've used them about a half dozen times now since I purchased them and I couldn't be happier. They fold up nice and small and are light enough that I can take them with me if weather is threatening...and just pull them on quickly if the skies open up. Last time I used them was at a Disc Golf tournament at Sugarbush Mountain in Vermont...in near monsoon like conditions with howling winds, driving rain, and temps in the 30's (it was snowing up on top of the mountain), and they kept me dry and warm. (Not that they're insulated. They're just a shell, and as such they're effective at blocking out the wind as well as the water.) Also, even being a wee bit on the tight side due to being worn over my normal pants and the fact that I could use to shed a couple pounds, I still have very good freedom for movement. Which is real important considering that I'm playing Disc Golf in them. The only downside is cost, but if you're considering Arc'teryx you know that you get what you pay for and these pants don't disapoint....so get 'em.

Awesome pant
May 19, 2010

Same with its name, It 's so light that I can put it to my packs easily, and it is suitable for these outdoor activities which need light gear such as treking. At the same time, it can provide good performance. it is rain proof and wind proof. I like it.

The best outer shell
April 28, 2006

I like to carry it all the time

Light weight, pack small
June 24, 2009

Great pants, waterproof, breathable, light, packable. I'm 6'3" 240lbs and the 2xl will work fine over shorts or hiking pants.

Super Lite
December 07, 2009

Great waterproof pants that are light weight. Can roll them up and pack in my backback. Will take them on my deployment to Middle East. Also will use for Boy Scout Camp outs.

Another great product from Arcteryx!
October 18, 2009

Fit is perfect, breathability is much better than marmot precip pants they replaced. The jury is still out on durability as I have not had them long enough-so far so good! I wish I had bought these the first time- precip coating delaminated a common problem / known problem with age and sweat/body oils.

Bombproof but runs a little small
November 06, 2010

Quality is what you would expect from this brand, but the pants do run small. I am 6'2 215lbs and the large is just too tight with pants or shorts underneath. I will be exchanging it for the XL size and hopefully that will give me some much needed room to layer.

Awesome pants, completely waterproof and windproof, In spring or summer backcountry activities, it performs very well. Moreover, it 's so breathable and has a super light weight. It has no pocket. It's a little inconvenient. But I am still satisfied with it.
