    It is easy to overthink/overdo trousers.

    If it is warm enough for shorts, I wear em (except in high bug season). I always have some (wicking) longjohns and rain shell if I get cold. This holds me in good shape until it gets down to the freezing mark.

    If it is warm, but I need long pants (ticks or thorny brush), I wear nylon pants, some nylon or blend BDUs are easy to find and do the trick, or you can buy a technical equivalent from any of a number of outdoor clothes companies.

    Below freezing I go for wool pants. Again backed up by longjohns and rain shell if necessary.

    Basically, my number one criteria when I look at a piece of clothing to be worn outdoors is, "How quickly does it dry.' If the answer is "Pretty quickly." and it fits (my body and my pack), it is good.

    Railriders are awesome and I'd love to get a pair. I went with a cheaper, but still good second option: 5.11 TacLite Pro. With some kind of polypropalene long underwear these are easily 3.5 seasons. Not sure about just sitting around in them in the very cold. They have good pockets (including a front knife pocket for folders), a loop on the back, slots in the knees for pads (if needed), gusseted crotch, and place to put tie-offs on the bottom of the legs. All around, good pants. And at ~$50, can get 2 pair for the price of one Railriders Versatac.

    Having said all this, I really want a pair of Railriders Versatac.

    I have aworn all of these and reccomend highly...
    Swedish cd pants... wish they still had the military version for sale these are super durable and will outlast anything you can buy from a department store. Plenty of room to move. http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/c....aspx?a=884912

    German molies... these are comfortable and feel really good. Cut a little tighter in the bum area than the swedes but more loose than your average jeans. http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/c....aspx?a=163115

    Dutch dungarees... on par with german cut but a little tougher.

    I havent tried some of there emt stuff, but am looking forward to that come spring.

    Can't vouch for much more than those, but they are all quality wear. As with everything from spg. Sizinge is always a problem. Go one step up in sizing. Everything eu seems a bit on the conservative side..

    RR Extreme adventure pants for summer and Filson double tins for everything else.
    Both are excellent.

    I have a pair of Magellan Adventure. They are great here in the south but not sure how they would fair up north. Also like the 511 tactical pants.

    For this winter, I'm wearing what I've got so my Burton snowboard pants which is lightly insulated with polyester and has a nylon shell with 4 large venting zippers that run from behind the calf to above the knee and outside quad on each leg. Under this I am wearing a merino wool base layer.

    This setup has worked well for me my past few outings in the 20* range, and I would categorize it as very warm. I've been very comfortable and for the hike in its nice to have those vents to let heat escape. I figured why let my snowboard gear sit around in a closet and get used 3-5 times per year when I can use them every weekend.
