    mont-bell UL thermawrap pants

    just got the thermawrap pants!!! there great! as good or better than expected!
    i believe they have a little more loft than i expected. it`s still not a lot, but it not intended to be. maybe 3/8"? probably as thick or thicker than a heavy fleece, but much lighter & way more compact.
    the zippers work great. they haven`t snagged a single time yet.
    when the zippers are zipped shut, it just looks like a seam.
    the XL pants weigh 11 & 3/4 ozs (12 & 1/4 ozs w/ the included stuff sack).
    my L patagonia capilene bottoms weigh 7 & 1/2 ozs.
    though i haven`t worn the new pants out yet, i suspect there`s no comparison in warmth.\ & ventabillity.
    then there`s the fact that i`ve needed to put on my long johns long before i did so many times, but didn`t because i had to take off the regular pants.
    same thing w/ the hassle of undressing to take the long johns off as i start getting warm next morn.
    this pant will be part of my clothing/sleep system fall through spring!

    it`s the first piece i`ve owned by mont-bell.
    it took me awhile to get past the price, but the more i looked at the workmanship, materials & design that went into it the more believed it would be worth the investment.
    i`ll pay the power bill later... just kiddin<g>

    Yup, it's love all right

    Congrats ! They should really help with your system (good thinking) and make it a whole lot less unpleasant with dressing and undressing to add layers
    (I hate that too)

    It'd be nice if they had womens sizes.... <sigh>... waiting for love to come along.....

    Enjoy !

    Thanks for the review. I am going to add them into my cold weather setup. For some reason in the really cold weather rain pants and long underwear were not cutting it while hiking.

    I have their sleeping bag and really like it. I would have gotten the thermawrap top, but it not coming out in XXL until this spring sometime. I like my jackets big enough to fit other layers underneath.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Tim, have you gotten a chance to use these any more? I am about tready to pull the trigger on these and want to know how they are working for you. I want to order soon while I have the extra cash and can get them in time for the Mt Rogers Campout.

    no i haven't... but i have put them on a couple times<g>.
    from what i've read from others & what i see w/ the new pair i have, i'm nothing but excited about these pants.
    i haven't had a chance to wear them in the cold yet, but i'm sure they will be worth there weight & cost.
    sorry... wish i could give you more solid field experience w/ the pants, but i don't think you would regret the investment. ...tim
