Mountain Equipment Trojan soft shell Pant..

WEIGHT: 410g/ 14.5oz
SIZE: 30-38 Regular, Long

Committing Alpine mixed and rock routes require fine choices in clothing, equipment and tactics. With every extra layer squeezed into a tiny rucksack you bet against yourself and the odds on getting the route done in a day lengthen. With the Trojan Pant at least your choice of leg wear is simple and the line between light and too light can be explored with confidence.

highly water-resistant
• Active cut with gusseted crotch and articulated knees
• Tapered leg with zippered expansion gusset for improved versatility
• Twin-needled and coverlocked construction
• 2 zipped thigh pockets and 2 zipped thigh vents all with laser cut and
bonded gasket entry
• Low bulk elasticated Velcro® adjustment at waist
• Wicking lined waistband for increased comfort
• Bonded hem for increased durability

I don´t know how readily available in US this are, but you should check Montura pants. They are especially known for their pants and are quite big all over the Alps.

'Trojan' doesn't have the same connotations in the UK, for those who're thinking ME designers might be overdoing the form-fitting aspect...

I saw these on sale at Mountain Gear as well.

Here's an interesting video from your friends at ProLiteGear regarding treated down compared to non-treated down (not exactly sure where the incentive/bias lies here):

Another interesting dry down vs untreated down under steam test:

Looking at these and your description of them, I second the Montura pants. Similar fit. very much climbing/Alpine oriented in their patterns and detailing if that means something. I have a pair of Verto Free's and they fit like no other '60s 501. Good detailing, DWR and no faff. There are different warmths/weights but I just take the thinnest one and adjust with base layers.
