I think they're killer pants. I was in Staggers for the 2 previous seasons, and it feels like the same pant, with a different (and improved) cuff lifter. If you're worried about warmth the Monoxide and True Penny colorways use the Genoa Denim outer material, as opposed to the Ripstop on the others. It's a little thicker and heavier, so should theoretically provide a little more warmth. I have the Monoxide, and it feels like a pretty substantial pant.
