The Arcteryx Womens Gamma LT Pant is a lightweight alpine and trekking pant ideal for three season outdoor use. They are cut for maximum freedom of movement and durability so make a fantastic climbing pant.
The Fortius DW 2.0 fabric provides excellent wind resistance, and will shed snow and even light rain with its DWR finish making it a great choice for fast and light mountain days. The fabric also has a good element of stretch and provides next to skin comfort. These pants are a fantastic choice for all mountain activities - comfortable, versatile and weather resistant.

These pants are one of my favourites in the right weather, I wear them a lot around town as well. They are very comfortable and they also look stylish. Don't expect too much of a water protection with them though, a 5 minute heavy shower and they were soaking wet - but at least they dry quickly. My biggest complain why I give them only 4 stars is the belt system. The belt is sew in and you cannot remove it. Normally the belt is closed, which can make it uncomfortable if you put the pant on and off a lot. I have removed the belt buckle and tucked in half of the belt in the opening on the right side (not a very elegant solution, let's admit), that's how I'm using it now. The problem is, that I have lost the buckle now, so I have no way to tighten up the belt when I need it so.
I bought these trousers mainly for walking in the spring and summer in the Lakes, but wore them first on a trip to the Maritime Alps in the south of France. With baselayer long johns underneath they were warm enough for walking with snowshoes in at times deep snow. The fabric also feels durable and mud brushed off easily.
I was surprised at how water resistant they were and this meant no need for shell trousers even when it was snowing heavily. I was also able to tighten them at the ankles with the elasticated cord. As a result, my socks stayed dry without gaiters even when sinking into the snow. Another big plus was that the stretch fabric meant they fit perfectly and movement never felt restricted. Finally, the two hip pockets are perfect for phone, keys etc and the side pocket is a good size for wallet and passport.
Not cheap, but really excellent quality and design.
Picked these up as they were on sale and I have been looking to replace the trousers I currently use for some time. The material used is thin ideal for the intended warm weather use however time will tell over durability. Trousers come with three pockets the two hand pockets are mesh no ideal for keys and the like but the pocket on the outside of the leg can be used for this instead. All three pockets have zips however the part you grasp is quite small hopefully something that doesn't carry over to the winter weight trouser as gloves would need to be removed to gain access. Unexpected positive drawstrings at the ankles tighten them up to prevent flapping in the wind, reduce chances for ticks or to roll up trousers for wading streams. Will give them a bash with base layers in autumn and possibly late winter (march) depending on the planned activity should increase there use.
The Arcteryx Gamma LT Pant is the lightest of the range and occupies little volume. It is ideal for outdoor activities such as hiking and trekking, but also for summer climbing and mountaineering. It is extremely comfortable and durable because of the materials used, a very robust and resilient but non insulated softshell fabric, so its use is recommended with mild temperatures, not winter.
Like all softshell garments, the Gamma LT Pant stops wind, repels water but is not waterproof, thanks to this it does not include any membrane and is extremely breathable.
