When it comes to ultralight insulation, it's hard to beat Montbell, and these down pants prove it again. These are the no-frills pants you want to keep you warm when you need them and then forget about when they're stuffed in your pack. The cross-hatched baffling means the down insulation stays in place and doesn't make uncomfortable bunches. The drawcord at the waist and elastic cuffs around the ankles seal out drafts on your lower body. Perfect for around camp or to add warmth to your sleep system.
Product is excellent--perfect for layering in sub temps or 'apres' around the fire--tapered ankles don't bunch up over the boot--no zipper and snap (like my whisper lights) so it doesn't come undone on the trail. Fairly substantial insulation without being bulky. (Overall buying experience was also quite positive. Hard to find product was in stock, wrapped nice and tight and zipped across the country in time to gift to myself for Christmas :) Received a nice follow up note via e-mail and thought that was classy. Precisely why supporting 'local' businesses makes sense.)
