If you want pants that are stretchy, windproof, and breathable, you should have them. "But how?" you ask. Check out the Dynafit TLT Touring pant, that's how. These are a great option for outdoor adventurers who are looking for something that can hold up against the elements from New Hampshire's wind-scoured Presidential Range to Oregon's snow-slammed Mt. Bachelor. The Dynastretch (DST) fabric is the kind of stretch material that moves with you, offering great, unencumbered mobility while moving fast. An elastic waistband, silicone grip hem reinforcement, and a boot compatible gaiter built into the legs will ensure that these pants stay down and keep even the deepest of snow out. If you run a bit warmer on the way up it will all be ok, these skin track trousers include ventilation zips on the side of the thighs. Since we all take pictures and we all get hungry out there, you can plan on keeping your phone and snacks handy in the two large front zip pockets. It's definitely time to ditch your hard-shell pants, but maybe not quite time to pull on form-fitting race pants. If you are looking to transition towards a more skimo oriented pant without the race-day look, the TLT Touring Dynastretch pant could be your middle-ground.

Questions & Reviews
The Mercury 2 Pro will fit a bit looser than the TLT Pant. The TLT Pant will also weigh about 40g less than the Mercury. Over all I'd say the Mercury is a warmer since it's actually lined on the inside!
Yes, the cuff on these pants can accommodate those boots. I just tried putting them on a pair of Dynafit TLT8s and they fit great! They have elasticity in the pant cuff that allows them to fit a variety of boot cuff widths.
