New epic sojourn "big wall pants"
« on: March 26, 2011, 12:00:03 am »
got the perfect synth puffy, now trying to figure out some replacement pants for my black diamond synthetic grey ones.

remember the gramicci big wall pant?  you cud slide some thin foam up into a knee pocket... viola no need for knee pads and less bulky.

patagonia alpine guide.  patagonia simple guide for warmer weather.  They have some really light weight nylon stuff for hot weather.

you pay for them, but they are the best.

I agree with Hoi about the Simple Guide Pants. They are light, windproof and water repellent. I have the Simple Guide Shorts also. If I start out the day with the pants and it gets hot, I can roll up the legs almost to my knee. I don't wear overly large kneepads and they fit quite well under these pants.

Yup. That's how I see it, too.
I've got a pair of Columbia's, cargo pockets & zip off pant legs that I like.

I've been pretty happy with my Prana Stretch Zion pants, 3 pairs so far, all on sale.
