I purchased these insulated trousers for cold weather mountaineering. For this reason, I wanted them to be warm, light, highly compressible, easy to put on and take off during a climb, usable while in a sleeping bag, and wearable as an outside layer or as insulation under a shell in extreme cold. The full length zippers allow them to easily be taken off and put on. The waist adjusts much better than some reviews have indicated, although these individuals may have evaluated an older version of the pants that were built differently. The Compressor Pants are comfortable enough to sleep in, the pockets are useful, and the reinforced knees and rear end lead me to think they will last as an outside layer, although I have only used them on one trip to date (I need more time to evaluate durability adequately). They fit easily within an admittedly roomy pair of shell pants with suspenders I use for back country skiing. The pants are quite warm and light as expected, but are more compressible than I expected. For my trip, I stuffed them in a 4 liter back backing dry bag (OP), and had plenty of room to roll the top more times than needed prior to clipping the bag shut. They close tightly at the ankles, although I wore OR gaiters as well. If you want a pair of high quality insulated pants, but dont want the down price, Mountain Hardwear Compressor Pants are just the ticket.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, warm
Nice to have in the cold!

I bought these pants to my husband. He had wanted them for a couple of years. And he is very satisfied. He wears them when it is cold and he walks with the dog, when we go hiking and rest for a while, fishing in winter etc. The pants are quite comfy, warm and the quality is very good. I would like to have a pair too!
Perfect for cold weather walking commute.

I bought these pants 'round about 3-4 years ago for another reason besides mountaineering/camping usage. I live in the city. I don't drive. I use these to keep my precious legs from the winter chill while I wait for public transportation to arrive. I'm 5'8'' and 175lbs. and wear the medium over my hospital scrubs (maybe thermal underwear too) with no problems. The seat and knees have abrasion resistant material which adds durability. Wonderful product!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: no drawcord for ankle area
Great for self-support boat trips

I bought these for winter overnight inflatable kayaking and rafting trips where I need to pack light and warm. These pants pack very small and are flexible enough so that they are the only pants I need to bring for use around camp. They are comfortable enough to wear in my sleeping bag, too. There are plenty of zippered pockets for easy access to things I carry around camp. The adjustments at the ankles make it easy to put them on while wearing shoes and tighten them up to keep the cold out.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, warm
