Review: OUTA WARE Norris Pants

Three Forks-based Outa Ware has built a watertight reputation for burly technical clothing that outlasts everything else in one’s outdoor wardrobe—and their new Norris Pants are no exception. In addition to Outa Ware’s trademark durability, the Norris’s soft microfleece lining and waterproof, breathable Dry-X outer fabric make for a comfy pant that will keep you warm and dry in all conditions. I started wearing mine in January, and by the time March arrived, I was wearing them around the house at night as well—they’d basically become pajama bottoms that I could ski in, too. Throw in the waterproof zipper, double-stitched seams, and Outa Ware’s 100% satisfaction guarantee, and you’ve got one kickass pair of technical trousers. The Norris Pants may be spendy, but they’re the last leggins you’ll have to buy for a long, long time. $162;
