Wow. Definitely better than BD's BDV's. These pants have a zipper, which obviously makes them better.
Pros- lightweight, stretchy, schoeller. They breathe well, shed water, dry from fully soaked in less than 20 mins, and resist abrasion. They have a sticky elastic around the bottom cuffs for alpine boots or ice climbing. Zippered pocket on the thigh and at the waist. nice to have a pocket access even with a harness.
Cons- smallish belt loops. no closeable cuffs on the bottom. expensive. no rear pockets.
All in all a stellar pant for outdoor activity. It breathes well, I've worn them in 100 degree weather and didnt overheat at all. Well worth the money.
