Because ice fishing is a sport.
There's a place where your balls go when it's really cold, and they never have a good time. The heavyweight DAKINE Torque Baselayer Pant is their ticket out. AEGIS-treated microfleece fights odor while you battle sub-zero temperatures, and front pockets give you a spot to put the lighter for the wood stove in the lodge.

Some Winter Warmth!
Definitely a pair of slim fitting pants. Very comfortable and warm. Pockets are pretty thick, though. Size chart is right on spot, don't oversize.
Great extra layer for frigid days...
This is a great pair of slim fitting fleece pants to be worn as an extra layer on frigid days.
The sizing chart is perfect. Do not oversize.
These should be worn over your normal base layer and under your outer layer. It is meant to add insulation to your outer layer but not to replace your normal base layer or its properties.
I use them everytime the temp is less than 20*F. Worked great in 0*F with wind chills into the -10*F.
Very nice pants
I got these on SAC, and am happy with them. Very warm and almost windproof. I wore them a couple of times at work underneath my crappy uniform pants and was very comfortable in 10 degree temps with a constant wind between 15-20 mph. The vents are in the crotch are a great idea, its not as good as the vent in the clutch crew top, but better than nothing. I have a 38" waist and the larges are tight, i should have got the xl's but thats my fault. I really hope they don't shrink in the wash, then i'll have to lose a couple of lbs. The only thing that I don't like about them is the pockets. They are not necessary, they are a slim fitting base layer and the pockets just bunch up and feel awkward. Overall very comfortable against your skin sans the pockets. Good pick up on the SAC.
Not sure how this should be used
I bought both the torque and the havoc last year. Had a chance to test them at not so extreme temps in France last week. -10c and i was actually really cold in the torque under a burton AK stagger 2l pair of pants. The havoc which is much thinner but tighter felt much warmer.
Not sure if i should have downsized or something, or if this should be worn over something else like an insulator layer.
