Great pants after I replaced the shock cord...
I also have the Torrid APEX jacket which has kept me warm in the single digits F so I know these pants are not lacking in warmth. And the quality is fine, no complaints there. But the 1/16" shock cord in the waist of these pants is so weak even though it's doubled, I replaced it with a single 1/8" shock cord and now the waist stays put.
Another small concern is the wide opening at the bottom of the pants legs - 19" inner circumference on my size Large pants, and with no elastic or cord to help seal off the large opening. I can easily put the Torrid APEX pants on over any pants I may be wearing but the opening is still not large enough to slip on over boots - you still have to take off your boots to put the pants on. I don't think much wind will enter the large openings as the pants tend to drape over your boots - but I would have liked to have some elastic or other means of closing the bottoms a bit. I may do that as a modification, if it proves necessary.
Overall I am happy with the pants. Now I don't care if Winter comes back for a bit, and I look forward to the next!
