ski touring full zip trousers. Good.

Used both for piste, day and hut to hut tours. Waterproof, light, visible but he waist buckle is fiddly and the inside leg ankle cuff light. I have torn this with campons on moderately steep ascents.

Terrible fit ruins otherwise good product

I bought these trousers for my boyfriend's birthday after reading ecstatic reviews online. We both own multiple pieces of arcteryx gear and have always been impressed by the quality, design, and fit.

These trousers are amazing, as long as you don't have to wear them. The build quality is incredible, the design is clever. You will not get wet in these trousers. But you will get blisters.

They fit atrociously for any serious movement. There is no stretch, which makes the fit crucial. Unfortunately, there's a real lack of fabric around the crotch, which leads to the trousers being pulled tight across your quads whenever you take a step. Wearing them for 3 hours whilst walking produced impressive sores.

Such a shame to see a spectacularly engineered product let down by poor ergonomics.
