Rated 4 out of 5 by AlbanySnowboarder Every Day Great Wool Pants
Great pants. Durable. I've been snowboarding in wool pants for twenty years, the last 15 with these pants. I replace them once every four years, usually because I forget to protect them from moth attack over the summer. Because they dry so quickly, I can ride in the day and keep them on for evening activities. Hint: if you are not using suspenders, remove the suspender buttons so they don't poke at your waist all day. Also, keep shirt tucked in so wool doesn't rub on waist all day. Better than pants twice the price. My only complaint: I can't seem to find a basic pair of wool pants that are lined (these are not).

So yeah, these pants rock like the Led Zeppelin. Thick, beefy, everything you want in wool pants.
Double button in front, smallish zipper but absolute quality.
Big Front pockets. It would have been nice to get the cargo pockets too. Oh well. The back pockets are buttoned, kind of a pain but the flaps are perfect, not all gnarly and sticking out.
I wear a size 31 waist, the 32s fit perfectly. Order up one inch.
I got the camo pattern, which is awesomely subdued.
I read a lot of other reviews that said these pants are not as thick as prior models. Don't know about that but they are plenty thick to me.
I wouldn't think twice about buying these again.

Very well made and worked to perfection in recent -16F temps. Couldn't ask for more.

Because of my height, I purchased these pants unhemmed. There was just enough fabric for my tailor to sew a hem. The reason I got these is I could not find winter overalls in my leg length.
I wore these pants to shovel snow during the several below zero F days we had here in Northern Illinois. I could not be more pleased. I was warm on the bottom half despite being outside several hours.
You do need to wear these with comfortable long johns because they are made of the wool fabric that will make you scratch like crazy.
I am really happy I went this route.
I intend to only wear them when it is frigid, so, assuming I don't put on the pounds, I hope to get several years out of them.

Somewhat windproof, but warm nonetheless. I would rather be wearing these while standing on the elevated subway platform than my cords.
But after several hours of wear they start to iiiitch. Even though I can live with it, I wish they were lined in a thermal type satin (one that does not conduct the cold).
I have more than one pair, and I rotate them -- Take good care of them and they will last and last.

Nice looking cold weather wool that is warm, but scratchy on the legs.

Short Story? If you want a classic, well made, heavy grade outdoor wool pant without frills (insulation, lining, etc.) look no further. Buy these.
Not that my opinion means more than someone else but I make my living testing outdoor products and providing manufacturers with outdoor product research.
-If you take the time to actually measure yourself correctly, the fit chart almost guarantees a perfect fit. If you wing it or use what you've always used for measurement then you may be disappointed.
-High quality, heavy grade wool fabric definitely delivers the old-school scratchy wool feel and all the insulation properties we expect. I tested these wearing Under Armour Cold Gear pants. No way I'd ever put this wool directly against my skin.
-Excellent to perfect stitching means these wool pants have held up extremely well in Blue Ridge Mountain hunting and while teaching winter survival skills.
-Buttons for suspenders and waist closures stitched tight and multiple thread passes through the button look promising for longevity.
-High quality YKK zipper will definitely last.
-Wool without lining is wool. Unless it's Merino wool (which these pants are not) it's going to be an uncomfortable wear. The wind will blow right through any wool pants. If you're stand hunting you're going to need some wind breaking protective over pant like Wind Stopper or Gore Tex. If you're still hunting (moving) you'll be fine.
-Price point is solidly on the higher end of the spectrum but in this case, you're definitely getting what you pay for.
Conclusion? Buy them if want a good quality, long lasting outdoor wool pant. You won't win any fashion shows but that's not why you buy a product like this.

Much thinner than the originals. These should be considered medium weight at best. Polar fleece lined canvas with a cold weather wicking layer next to the skin offers more warmth and durability at lower cost.
The one plus is the fact that these do not have the noisy nylon layer on the inside.

I have worn the pants several times since purchase and I wish I had bought it years ago. It fits so well and has the warmth of wool that I desired for all my outside uses ( hunting, fishing, etc.). Thanks for great products. Dan
