Alpine Softshell Pants is rated out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cal from Perfect Fit! I've been looking for a replacement to my favorite, but well-worn, climbing pants & I just found them! They fit perfectly under my harness. I was a little worried about the integrated belt/buckle, but it is very low profile and is not even noticeable under the waist band of my harness. Good range of motion and zippers on every pocket...perfect! The non-cotton material is great at wicking away moisture and drying quickly...great for those sweaty days on a big wall followed by cooler nights. For sizing, I normally wear a 31-32 inch waist, an the Medium fit me perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andy from Perfect for alpine rock These are great softshell pants for summer or warmer weather alpine rock climbs that may involve a little bit of glacier or snow travel. Think Cascades and Bugaboos, the Diamond, etc. I wouldn't wear them ice or true alpine climbing, but they are a perfect weight for summer days up high in the mountains where you need durability, breathability and just a little bit of weather resistance. I'm a 31 waist and I'm 5'11", and the medium fits great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luke Nomad from Best climbing/hiking pant yet! Most of the BD pants I've tried have not fit me properly. I am 6'3" 205, usually wear a 34 x 34" so it is hard to find quality outdoor pants that fit. These fit perfectly and have all the functionality and freedom of movement one should expect. They look great and I like the belt system that allows you to use the incorporated belt system without a belt or add a belt through the heavy duty belt loops. I will probably order every color.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NevadoYerupaja from Nice pants, but These pants are too lightweight to be referred to as an alpine softshell. Features are good enough. They fit folks who are notably slender for their height.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kyle from Breathable, durable, all around favourite pant! I've had these for about a month now and so far have been very happy. I've used them for hiking, climbing, traveling and use during search and rescue work. At 6'1" 175lbs the mediums for me perfectly. They have yet to shoe any signs of wear even after a few rock climbing sessions and scrambles. My only complaint is the thigh pocket sits just a little low and if I put anything of weight (phone, knife...) in that pocket it hits the top / side of my knee while hiking and moving. Overall this has become my go to pant for any and all outdoor activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ryan from Most comfortable pants I've ever worn I put these on and didn't want to take them off. I got the mediums. I have a 32-33" waist, 30" inseam (but med will fit longer,+1-2"??) Used them in light rain and mud, and was very comfortable. in them. They're perfect for fall/spring, add some polypro underu-s and they're ok for colder temps. Pockets are well placed, all with low profile zippers that do not get in the way or snag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by john from A fine piece of equipment I purchased these for a trek & climb in Nepal to the Dhaulagiri circuit and Dhampus Peak. I wore them from the Dhaulagiri base camp on to a a max elevation of 17,800' the conditions ranged from cold , wind snow fall to sunshine. They were warm enough never requiring a thermal layer, they breath well, never overheated and shed precip well. Could use a few more pockets though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mtn Pete from Great mix of function and form Bought these for a spring ascent of Mt. Whitney. Excellent choice. They fit very well (34" waist, 34"+ inseam), moved very well when cramponing it up the 1700' chute, breathed well, kept the moisture off. Temps were between 25 degrees and about 55 degrees. The pants would work well in colder temps with a base or insulation layer underneath.
