NorthFace cargo pants. i got some last year for $70 on steepandcheap in yellow. they are really light and thin, but kept me really warm.

This is the best way to do it. Some companies to look at are:

- 686
- Analog
- Special Blend
- Sessions
- Burton
- Bon Fire
- Vans
- Foursquare

There are probably more, but nothing else comes to mind right now.

My favorites are:

Volcom
DC (can't forget DC, awesome pants)
Foursquare
Alycium

I don't like insulated pants at all. They don't touch your legs unless you are Joe Sexton or LNP and wear girls pants. So IMNSHO I think they are not that effective. I prefer my pants loose and warmth to come from form fitting layers!!!

Any thing that's ex army from an alpine background usually does. Goretex is what you really want none of this teflon coated crap.

Fluid is onto something with talking about layers and pants that touch your legs automatically make you a douche... Or did I make that up? Either way...


But ya

I've got a pair of DC Banshee pants and they are the tits! They have a sick waist gaiter and a cord that can pull your pants up so they don't drag on the ground when your walking around in the slop. They also have an amazing waist tightening system so you can get pants far larger then you should and they will still fit in the waist.

I also have a pair of Capp3l pants that I like a hell of a lot.. They're far thicker then the DC pants and I will be wearing those on colder days.

I had a pair of Ripzones or something like that and the crotch blew out of those after a few days so I don't recommend that companys stuff.



Fluid is absolutely right when he mentions wearing layers... That's what it's all about imo. Buy yourself some nice underlayers and think ahead on how many layers to wear when you go out. Imo getting something fairly light and using layers for your tops and bottoms is the way to go. That way you can layer up in the colder months, and layer down on hotter days and still be comfortable. Kinda suddenly makes 1 pair of gear into 2 pairs of gear..

dude Volcom has that exact fit that you are looking for, I love the way they fit. You get that baggy, but still around your waist look.

K2 Darko Boots

I second the North Face pants. I have 2 pair (black and other is lime green). Wore them last season in -30 wind chill with no problem. They always keep me super dry and warm.
