Some lucky BPL'er is now the proud owner of the world's lightest down pants! These are made from 0.51oz cuben fiber, with 3oz of 900 fill down.

The weight is 141.6 grams (4.99 oz) without the stuffsack. With the stuffsack, they are 5.11 oz.

So, this means that 60.1% of the weight is down!

These are basically new, they would cost about $200 if you ordered them from goosefeet directly.

I have used down pants after a long day, when it gets dark and temp drops and everyone is sitting around freezing except me. I would put them on under my hiking pants to protect them. I'd still get the Michelin Man jokes but I was warm.
They are also great in a sleeping bag when you are pushing a bag beyond it's limit.

This pair I never used so they are essentially new; they are too small for me.
They have an elastic waist.
