Outdoor Research Wms Cirque Pants
on March 11, 2012
These pants blew away my expectations. I fully believed the advertised description of these pants, but rarely have I found clothing products that meet these standards. We live in northern Michigan, in the "snow belt". That means 6 months of the year we are burried under several feet of snow. We share our lives with amazing dogs, Alaskan Malamutes ~ which means winter time outdoor sports... We have been searching for a winter running / hiking pant for when we run (Cani-X) with our Malamutes. We need pants that will breathe, plus be wind and waterproof and somewhat warm. I got lucky and found these pants (thanks to an Amazon suggestion). They fit me perfectly! I bought a medium. I am 5'9 and 130lbs. The length of the pants are perfect, the design and cut are perfect. It is as if they were made for me. They are ridiculously comfortable and have found myself wearing them all day rather than just on our runs or hikes. The kevlar material on the inside of each ankle is dynamite and will save the inside of the legs from wear and tear. The little gator clip inside is quite ingenious. You can cinch up the ankles to fit tight around your boots or hikers and clip the gator clip onto your boot, so your pant leg will not ride up! They do not pull or restrict movement in any way. They are light and are 1000000% the most comfortable pair of winter, outdoor training pants I have ever owned. At 39 years of age and having been a runner since grade school... I have a lot to compare them to. They are extremely high quality and seem like they will last a really long time. I have worn them already in temperatures (to exercise) from -12*F up to 55*F and was comfortable both days. When it was super cold, I wore a pair of Columbia Omni Heat lightweight pants under them. I luckily got mine on sale but honestly, If I had to I would absolutely pay full price. As a matter of fact after wearing mine for just a day, I ordered another pair along with the matching jacket as well as a set for my husband! Wonderful quaity, great looking, very innovative design. Excellent. 5+ stars!
