Exos Pants
Hard core ski/ice climbing pants. Not a shell, but more of a mid layer for true alpinist. Great for moderate temp rock climbing as well. By far the most durable mainstay pant I use for the winter season. Even when crampons get the best of them, just use tent sealer to patch them back up. Stand up to a lot of crap. I am a huge layer person, so normally this serves as the middle layer, with a real light shell on top which serves me to -30c. Pockets are all in the right place. Built-in belt that does not interfere with your pack. Has suspender loops which you need to use on ski trips. I use them in the desert a lot as well during the winter months, 50f temps. They have real good air out slots, so never too hot. OR is simply not outdone on durable, real athletic outdoor wear in my opinion.

this was my go to alpine pant, alpine climbing, ice climbing or backcountry skiing....had two pair last me forever and put up with a ton of abuse before failing at the seams...but OR has gone the way of so many other clothing companies, keeping the obese happy and stiffing us fit normal dudes at 5'11", 150lbs I guess I am a bit wormy, but when I put on a new small pair of these (had not bought any in years), my wife said forget function, she absolutely would not allow it. They were a foot off the floor! Guess I have to find an alpine clothing company willing to make a reasonable inseam length for somebody with a 30" waist (ok, more like 28"!).
