Love these pants!
I bought my first pair of these on the advice of a friend who's a cross country skier. I'm a runner and complained about both the deep winter cold and wind (in particular) cutting through my cold weather running pants. I was hesitant the spend the money (these are twice what my most expensive pair of running pants cost), but they were well worth it and I now own two pair, as well as buying two pairs for my wife (who also loves them).
My oldest pair is four years old now. They look and feel like new.
They do a great job of keeping me warm, even on the coldest winter days (in SE PA, that's down to single digits F) and they cut through most breezes very well. These are my go-to pants when the temp is below 32F.
At 5'10" the large short pants fit well. There is one small, but well placed pocket on the hip - great for sticking in my car keys. My wife puts her phone in that pocket. For me that's enough storage.
I'm really happy with these and believe them to be a good value for the money.
