      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Pinnacle Soft Shell Pants:

      I picked up two pairs of these pants, one for me and one for my wife. We went to Iceland for a week and used these on a glacier trekking excursion (where we also did some ice climbing) and also on a 4 mile hike and then went inside a volcano. I also wore these pants on the return flight home because after wearing them throughout the week they were the best pants I've ever worn in my life. They held up great, had ton of flexiblity and looked great on. They were warm enough and blocked the wind suffeciently. They are so good friends of ours on the trip wished they had them as well.

      I also want to take a second to commend the staff at the Fairfield, CT store. One of the staff went into the back room to find the mens version of the pants for me. I had found them in the womens section and needed them for myself and was so grateful when the young man found them. He went above and beyond for us and made our trip that much more enjoyable in the right clothing.

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Pinnacle Soft Shell Pants:

          I do a lot of winter hiking, most of it off-trail. The soft shell pants I wear must not only repel moisture, but they must be able to withstand the rigors of pushing through spruce trees barely shoulder width apart.

          I purchased these pants at the beginning of the winter season but waited until the end in order to be able to offer a fair and accurate opinion of their performance and durability. I have to say that after 54 peaks and pushing through some of the nastiest woods that the State of Maine has to offer, these pants stood up remarkably well. Despite their best efforts, the spruce were unable to tear the fabric or ruin a zipper.

          The inside surface of the fabric is smooth enough that it doesn't feel rough against bare skin. It is lightweight and very breathable. I never felt hot in them. The pants are sized such that I can comfortably wear a thermal base layer underneath on the coldest days. The fabric has some stretch to it so it doesn't bind when making awkward maneuvers.

          The only negative comment I could make is that there are some signs of abrasion around the lower legs that were caused by my gaiters. The fabric has a slightly lighter appearance where the gaiters were rubbing the pant legs. It's almost as if it rubbed off some of the color. The fabric itself is not compromised and should be good for another season.

          Overall, these pants served my needs very well.

            Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Pinnacle Soft Shell Pants:

            Went to my local shop in Manchester, CT. Unfortunately I am a size medium and they only had XL left. Yet, a store employee suggested we visit the mannequin. Yup, we stripped the poor mannequin of his pants - it felt a little awkward lol, but I took his pants and the medium fit perfect. I'm 5'7" with cyclist legs, etc.

            I love these pants! I've used them for sub 32 cold winter hikes, snowboarding, and clearing snow - shoveling and snow blowing. They have wind resistance and the bottom has a zipper and can flare over a winter boot or tuck inside. I typically wear an EMS base layer #2 under them and they are a perfect combo. Highly recommend.

            High quality, rugged pants. See they are even less than when I purchased them on sale. May need to start using a belt. Inseam perfect. Thought I was going to get a $25 credit for orders over $100. Did not get. Maybe because I used a gift card? Bring back the Endo pants as a less expensive alternative.

              I really like these pants for hiking and climbing in the winter. They fit well with a light layer under them. I do wish they had a cozier brushed interior so I could wear them alone. They also have a great dwr coating and the water runs right off them.

              Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Pinnacle Soft Shell Pants:

              This is my second year of winter hiking and my first pair of softshell pants. I bought these and I'm impressed at how comfortable and durable they are. My only complaint is that the two times I wore them with a fleece and thermal liner underneath, my butt was cold. The temps were 17 degrees one day and -3 the other. I thought hiking 7 miles would heat up my backside, but not enough in these pants. I love them, but test them in cold weather before putting them to the test in a remote location.
              For now I'll put a couple of body heat packs on my butt..

                I really like these pants. Not very thick - if I were wearing them out in very cold weather I would put on a base layer. They do have some stretch - but now a lot. Very comfortable and look pretty good. I wore them out in snow and 25 degree weather (cold for Virginia) and I was very comfortable.

                    I bought these pants for my wife and I they are perfect for active chilly days. We spent time in Maine for Christmas (7 days) and we used them a lot. Anything from splitting wood, shoveling, walks, sledding, hanging out by the campfire, and going in to town. They are really comfortable, breathable, and stretchy...yet durable. Some days I wore a baselayer underneath, some days I just wore the pants.

                    My wife wore her's skiing because they were a better "look" than her North Face ski pants. She didn't have any issues with them. These are going to be a go-to pant for any outdoor activity from November - March. If you do anything outdoor during the cooler months and hate putting on ski pants...these pants are a MUST HAVE! Everyone on my wife's side of the family are getting a pair (that's who we vacationed with).
