I've always been a fan of Norrona kit - it's not cheap but the quality and durability is exceptional, these trousers didn't disappoint. The design is well though out with all the pockets and zips in just the right place and no gimmicky extras to increase the weight or get in the way. They're incredibly light for such a tough product and freedom of movement is excellent. On the sizing chart, I was on the border between medium and large. I opted for the mediums and they turned out to be bigger than expected so, if you're unsure, opt for the smaller of the choices available to you. The only improvement I would make is to reduce the leg volume at the bottom a little, there's probably a little too much space. If you're worried about colour coordination for jackets and trouser, don't. The whole range is designed to work together (which isn't as obvious on the website pictures) so they all match in their own loud way. Something that isn't immediately obvious on the product description is that the trousers not only have the snap fit system but also come with an extra wasteband (stashed in the pocket) which allows you to zip the jacket and trousers together giving you a onesie for those deep powder days.
