Mentor pants
January 09, 2012

recently got the mentor pants. The large is def a fair bit larger than than medium (which I tried as well). They are made well and appear to be constructed w/ durability in mind. The high waist/ partial bib is a nice feature.

Pros: Great design, Build quality

Great fit, good weather protection
December 21, 2009

I just recently bought them so not a lot of wear and tear but so far they have held up well. I bought them mostly for the backcountry, to keep me warm and dry. Great protection from the weather. I'm a woman, but have had a hard time finding womens pants of similar quality in a bib style so bought these in mens and am very happy. It's nice that they aren't super baggy.

Great Shell
February 11, 2008

These pants are more a mid-level bib than pant. I took them up to Big Mountain this past weekend, where the temp was an unseasonable 35F. I was concerned about staying dry due to the warm, melting conditions. It was snowing hard, and despite snow turning instantly to water on my upper legs as I sat on the chairlift, these pants had no problem keeping me dry. It was the perfect test, and they passed with flying colors. They fit neat and allow you to move and shake with no restriction.

OR Mentor
December 05, 2010

OR delivered once more a great product. Quality and durability with the addition of the hight waist, "bib" style makes it perfect for the worst climbing condition. As usual be aware that a medium is equivalent to a large with Mountain hardwear. Expensive but worth it!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value, Cons: Cost

Mentor's run small
December 13, 2010

I bought a medium after reading reviews that these pants run large. I'm 6'1" and 170 lbs. The length is just a little short, but the pant is definitely on the tight side. There's is no way I could fit knee pads under these pants. Other than the size they are wonderful pants. Really nice gaitors they fit extremly snug (good thing). No snow getting in your boots. Nice sized pockets and completely waterproof. A great alternative from the pants that cost more. Best pro shell pant out ther for the money, but I'll be returning mine for a large.

Pros: Build quality, Performance
