Brooks-Range Cirro Pants
Puffy jackets keep your upper half warm, so why not don some puff in the southern hemisphere? Our tester wore these PrimaLoft-insulated pants winter camping in four western states and raved about the light weight (11 oz. for a medium), packability, and warmth in temps as low as 8°F: “I feel stupid for all my years of shivering around the fire,” he said. Full zips enable targeted venting on the sides, and the Pertex Quantum fabric handles light precip and abrasions; however, they felt clammy next to skin, so rock a baselayer.
