Outdoor Research's popular Ferrosi Pant has had some small improvements but hasn't lost it's award winning fabric or any it's key features that made it a super-light, super-stretchy softshell that's really comfortable to wear.
Outdoor Research says:
These pants dig climbs that take them a few hundred feet off the deck. The tough but stretchy, breathable but wind-resistant Ferrosi fabric stays cool during long approach hikes, moves with you while talus wrangling and high-stepping on the sharp end, and blocks wind during long hours of belaying up high.
Outdoor Research's Ferrosi Pants are extremely lightweight yet rugged pants that breathe incredibly well. The stretch fabric will move comfortably with your body, no matter what the activity and is not as rough as most soft shell's so it feels comfortable against your skin.
This updated version still keeps it's award winning fabric but has been redesigned elsewhere with a more modern slim fit, reinforced durability in key high wear areas, functional climbing specific features and versatile design details that transition easily from street to summit.
