Disclaimer: I am an ambassador. However, I review my favourite items! Having owned and thrashed dozens of alpine pants over the years, I can say that these are perfect for cold weather alpine sports. I wore them to guide for the spring alpine guiding season in NZ and guided Aoraki in them in November. I've been ice climbing and alpine climbing in them in Utah over the Boreal winter. They repel water just fine and the fleece lining makes them extremely comfortable on cold windy days. Pocket placement excellent. My only peeve is that the cuff doesn't quite fit over my ski boot -even when I unzip it. This is a bonus for climbing as snow cannot get under the cuff. Highly recommended for climbers!

Great purchase for being in the cold!
I bought these pants to tramp the Northern Circuit in New Zealand in April. It was very exposed, cold, windy and icy. But they passed the windproof test. I was snuggly and warm the whole time! I am also planning to take them to Canada and the USA over xmas in case we hit snow. They are very comfortable to wear. A great purchase.
