In a class all by itself.
Burton sent out to make the Men’s Ak Select Pant one of the most unique and technically advanced base layers out there. Between the grid-backed DryRide Ultrawick fabric and welded thigh pocket, these pants definitely make that goal a reality. These pants offer better moisture management than most, and the 3D stretch fabric allows you to move without anything getting in your way.

I am a skier and i was skeptical about burton soft goods..... but no more, u guys are equal! May not be as warm or nice as a patagucci r1 pant, but work almost just as well..... and look a lot better.
I use underneath a shell pant while skiing/riding and it has worked great from -10 to 45.... not to mention at the end of the day you look damn good in these pants.
They are baggier fit, so they look good when around house, town, etc. although if you want slim fit order smaller size
p.s: pockets are semi-useful if you ever want to use a zipper pocket on your long underwear or are using for casual/apres wear
Just received mine today. Just to give you a heads up they run large. I'm 6'2" 185lbs and a size large is not a tight fit. Hopefully they will shrink up a bit. Feel good though. could be used as a base layer or a second layer with another tighter fitting long under ware underneath them. Got this plus the AK select pants.
