The North Face Jeppeson Pant has a more active fit, stretch fabric, good insulation, and pretty standard waterproofing. It’s hard to find form fitting pants, that are also insulated, and the stretch fabric allows for better mobility and movement. The fit is great, but again, they are form fitting so not much room for layering. I really like a form fitting pant, as long as I can still use the pockets. The pockets offer plenty of storage space, but the uppers can be a bit small for larger items. I usually need a place for my phone, my keys, and snacks on the mountain. The pockets are fine for my phone, but a bit tight for keys. If you don’t need bigger pockets, The North Face Jeppeson Pant is just fine. Overall the feel is pretty good. The North Face Jeppeson Pant a solid pant that has some pretty great features you usually don’t see together. I think it would make a great every day pant for those who don’t ride in a lot of rain or wet snow.
