Mountain Hardwear - Compressor Pant - Men's

Lightweight and highly compressible, the Mountain Hardwear Compressor Pants can be worn either on belay on or the move. Their proprietary Thermal.Q™ Elite synthetic insulation mimics the loft and warmth of down but provides excellent performance in damp conditions. The reinforced seat and knees protect against abrasion in high-wear areas, and full side-zippered legs provide ventilation and easy clothing changes.

Product Reviews

Short people are smiling!
I called Mountain Hardwear years ago - this design stands the test of time - and asked them to make these longer. They say they are fine for most boot-tops. I say make a LONG! It would be worth an extra $50 to me! I've got a 36" inseam, and this pant only has a 32" inseam. I'd still like the pant down over my boot tops. So if you are tall, plan on bridging the substantial gap with gators. (It's a shame, because with the full-zip and articulated knees, these would be an excellent cold-weather motorcycle pant. But with the 32" inseam- no go.) Review by Larry B
High country PJ's.
Two winters (that means below freezing and above 9k ) and five trips out, doing great. Small tear on an ankle; no problem; a patch of black duct tape and good to go - synthetic insulation doesn't spew out like down, and since pants (IMHO) usually get wetter than tops ( things get sat on, water gets stepped in, and stuff gets kneeled on ); I'm fine with not having to worry about wet down. And honestly; I'd like a good pair of down pants. And honestly; at four bills+ for a good pair; probably not happening for a while. So I'm good with the synthetic fill on these.

They compress good; but they aren't down... there is some volume to them; and again; they aren't down. It will take some oooph to really get them smalled up. Some of that is the material on the bottom, knees, and ankles ( I got my small tear in a low-land sticker/thorn patch fwiw ). Well worth the slight bulk over down.

I did have my tailor put Velcro tabs on the sides so I could cinch them up real well; again, no problem, woop-de-doo; $18 to customize for efficiency = big win for me.

Great to kick around in during the day; and under proper Gore-Tex pants; total near-zero comfort. Total. Comfort. When I go out; they go in the pack. That says it all; and I *do* like to go out. Review by MoFo
