Great PantsReview by Jonathan Stewart
I'm on to my second pair of Volant pants (hey, middle age happens, if you know what I mean), and I couldn't imagine going into the cold without them. My last pair got pretty beat up in the seat and knees since the lightweight fabric sacrifices durability for weight. For my current pair, I had FF reinforce those areas with a thicker fabric and have had no problems. This is one of the true benefits of buying from FF - the personalization of your product. The elastic waist has two buttons on either side, so you can adjust for layering, or large meals, which makes the fit pretty comfortable. I wouldn't want to wear them on an extended hike, but they're comfortable enough for non-strenuous activities.

I've worn them in Siberia, Mongolia and north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska in the winter, down to -30F, and worn over a few other leg layers, they were very toasty. Combined with a lightweight down parka, they also are great for extending the comfort range of your sleeping bag. (Posted on 11/11/2014)
