Topic - Patagonia Mixed Guide Pants

Milesy - on 11 Dec 2012
I am in the market for a pair of smart looking for functional trousers. I am sick of the usual drab black and fancy getting something in a bright colour.

Been looking at these : http://www.urbanrock.com/mens-mixed-guide-pants

Now the big question is - how well do they really cope with Scottish winter? Ot talks about weather on The Ben in that description but how do they really hold up to driving rain and sleet while ascending to the snow line? My decathlon soft shells failed miserablely in wind driven wet snow going up to Sneachda last year and ended up getting really wet and cold and had to bail off my route on the first pitch.

Any other suggestions? Want them to be bright. Crampon patches. Preferably a bib or braces but not essential.
