      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Orion Pants:

      I received these pants as a gift and was very excited to try them out. I own the matching jacket made from the same fabric. This material is relatively light weight and still fairly rugged. It sheds water without absorbing any water weight and you can just shake it dry. Both the jacket and pants vent well. My only complaint about these pants is the way the waist and side zipper are laid out. The waist has a very small 1" Velcro square tab over the zipper on both hips. If unzipped from the top to ventilate your thighs while you are active this little tab of Velcro wont do the job of keeping the waist together so your pants end up falling down. The only way around this is to unzip from the bottom which means you have to unzip the entire leg to vent your thighs. This is not an ideal situation especially if you are in deep snow or just need a little ventilation. I was really excited about these pants but I'm not sure I'm willing to deal with this design.

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Orion Pants:

        Overall I am very happy with these pants so far. I purchased them on sale prior to ski season to replace an old pair of Burton pants that were always really too big for me.

        I don't think the overall construction is quite as good as the really high end brands (e.g. Patagonia) but they did keep me dry through several wet days on the mountain as well as walking the dog in the rain.

        The material feels great and is very comfortable, and I appreciate the scuff guards.

        I will concur with some of the other reviews regarding the fit of the internal gaiters. They fit well over my ski and snowboard boots but are a bit loose over my street boots. Likewise the velcro side closures are not very strong, especially with the sides unzipped. I addressed this with an inexpensive D-ring belt also needed because I needed a large for the inseam but my waist is only 34" (vs 35-36 per the sizing chart)

        The big selling point on these pants is the price. With regular promotions offered by EMS you should be able to get them for less than half of the cost of a comparable pant from some other brands. On top of that is the unbeatable EMS gaurantee (any time, any reason).

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Orion Pants:

          These seem well made, had nice features (pockets, etc.) & based on other EMS outerwear I've owned I assume the materials would perform well for their intended purpose. However, I returned them because they were way too long for me. I'm a little over 5'9" & I wear a 32" waist in any normal pants. I ordered Mediums. The waist was just about right, but the legs were far too long - even with ski boots on. Other minor negatives for me: the legs were also too wide at the bottoms & the finish on the fabric is like a static magnet for dust and lint.

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Orion Pants:

          Nice pants and will do well in the rain and light snow, but the elastic around the boots are VERY loose and there's no way to connect to gaiter grommets on waterproof boots.

          Functionally this means that when walking in deep snow, it will get into your boots. Honestly, I don't understand why the elastic is so loose and/or it wasn't made with an adjustable elastic and/or with hooks to use the integral gaiter as a gaiter!

          I'd recommend this for rain or shallow snow, but not for deep snow or winter activities.

          The side leg zippers need improvement. The material flap behind the zipper is to loose so it catches in the zipper as the zipper travels up or down. Maybe stitching the flap at third points instead of just at end and along where the zipper is stitched in.
          Thank you.

            Purchased in a clearance sale to replace goretex ems ski pants that had served me well. These do not fit me as well and the material does not breathe as well, but it was still very good and the best of the pants I tried from and other companies that supply outdoor gear. Was able to get a very good sale price through on line.

                Bought these because me and a buddy decided we wanted to climb MT. Washington and was in a hurry to get some shells. I got the Orion jacket too. The first pair i got was flawed, one of the two front button snaps was broken. I brought them in to a store and they helped me get them returned and a new pair ordered from the warehouse since they weren't in stock. They shipped quickly and i got them in time for my trip, this all happened with in the 10 days prior to going mind you. They preformed great, kept the wet and wind out. Fit great too, very comfortable, stretchy waist is a plus. so we went up the mountain on February 7th, 2015. Made it to 5266 ft before turning around due to other gear failure and heavy packs. It was a rushed trip and our first mountaineering experience, we cut some corners on gear. But these pants did what they were suppose to the entire time.
