As any body tried these yet? I just got mine in the mail. XL at 3.4oz and black plus they fit me perfectly. They seem like great pants with lower buttons on the bottom for a quick on/off. Are they bug proof? These are lighter then the BPL Thorofare pants.

Hi Ray!

Yes, these are lighter than the BPL Thoroughfare pants, which weigh in at 3.9 oz. As near as I can tell they're darn near pretty much the same fabric, which means they're bug proof fer sure. For a lighter, bug proof, wind pant check out the crazy light Montbell Dynamo at 2.6 oz.
