Voted 5/5

The pants are lightweight, warm and comfortable. They're made of the high quality that you would expect from MH. The synthetic fill means you stay warm if they get wet. I wore them on Mt Shasta and Denali in 2008 and was very happy with them.

Great pants. Very warm and lightweight; however, these do seem like they would tear easily, especially if you're wearing crampons. Gators are a must if wearing crampons! Fortunately I haven't torn mine yet.
