    Comments about Vapor Dry 3D Stadium Pant:

    This is my second pair of the Vapor Dry Stadium Pants. I love the fit and the comfort. I run and workout in them and use them for casual wear a lot. The inseam is perfect for me (6'tall). I could wear them every day. They are durable and hold up well as well as being warm enough to wear in cool weather while walking the dog. It won't be my last pair.

      Comments about Vapor Dry 3D Stadium Pant:

      In general, this is a decent pant for cooler weather and warm-up/cool-down runs. I would avoid wearing the pants for longer distances or warmer weather because the material does not breath especially well and can be clingly when legs become moist.

      Be careful about length when ordering, as the leg length may be a touch shorter than other comparable products of the same size.

      Comments about Vapor Dry 3D Stadium Pant:

      I own 2 pairs of the Vapor Dry 3D Stadium Pant, so my review reflects my experience with both pairs.

      The materials comprising the Vapor Dry 3D Stadium Pant are high quality and comfortable. The material is heavy weight enough to feel nicely warm for winter running, but not too heavy so as to feel burdonesome. The pants are well designed in terms of features; the pockets, zips, reflectors, etc., are all well put together.

      My complaint about them is purely concerning the fit; unfortunately, its a significant complaint. Overall, the pants fit a bit large, so I would recommend ordering down a size. But the real issue is the trim of the pants. They do not have enough taper below the knee; the result is that there is excess material that flops around at the ankle area. Because the material has some weight to it (since it is a fall & winter pant), the flopping material is very noticeable when running, particularly as you increase the pace. Worse yet, the lower zipper (from the ankle to mid-calf) tends to come undone as you're running (probably because the loose material is flopping around so much), which makes a potentially hazardous situation: several times, I have almost tripped on the material around the ankle as the zipper comes undone and releases more material to flop around.

      The good news is that there is a relatively easy fix for this pant: if the Brook design team would simply taper the pant significantly more below the knee, then this running pant would be fantastic! So hopefully the design team is reading these reviews!

      In conclusion, this is *not* a pant for serious runners (due to the reasons outlined above). However, for very casual jogging, going to the gym, etc., this pant may suit just fine. In fact, some wearers may like the aesthetic appeal of the pant given that it does *not* taper very much below the knee. However, Brooks certainly seems to be marketing the pant towards serious runners. That being said, I will continue using these pants on a regular bases for my runs until Brooks comes out with a revised design.

      Comments about Vapor Dry 3D Stadium Pant:

      I bought these pants being told that I could run in them, but they are too heavy to run in unless you are just out for a 5-6 mile easy run. Comfortable enough to wear to the gym or around town, and they are nice to have to put on after a race in the winter, but too heavy to do speed work, tempo runs, or long runs in.

      Great overall running pant for training as well as warming up for races. Side pockets are good for keys, gels, etc. The only drawback may be that the ankle cuffs are a bit loose for my liking compared to the previous version of this pant.

        i wear these anytime the temp is 35 or colder and winds are a factor. very warm and suprisingly I don't feel restriction. lower leg zipper is a nice feature to unzip to allow more air flow.

          A bit pricey but the overall fit for someone under six feet was perfect. Too many brands have inseams that are more than 2-3 inches longer than I need.
