    Is that TecSys and accompanying TecSys compatible pouches on the pants? Or is it some other attachment mechanism?

    Second that. The Sequent isn’t restrictive at all for most movements. The only thing is that, depending on your height, they might be a little short. So it might be a bit uncomfortable to cross your legs or bend your knees extensively when sitting, due to the bottom of the pants slipping up your legs towards your knees. And it might not be the most professional look to have a major gap between the bottom of the pants and the socks when you sit normally, or with legs crossed. Minor gripe, though, and depends on the setting you use them in.

    Double post.

    I might have given off too much of a negative vibe regarding my opinion on the Field pant. I actually really like them, and they might turn out to become one of my favourite pants. I just had some comments on how my own expectations of the garment didn't match the actual garment. I went TTS. And it's not that the pants are that constricting per se, it's more that compared to most of my other pants, which are articulated or wide fitted, I can bend my joints and not notice the limitations of wearing pants. I completely agree that it's not fair to compare the Field pants with wide fitting pants, of course. It's just that it says that they're articulated, but they're really not that articulated. I wasn't expecting anything like the P10A's, or anything, which are super articulated. The only other Veilance pant I own is the Sequent, and it is cut slightly wider in the hips and thighs, but is shorter in length. This makes the bottom of the pants rise up pretty high on my leg when crossing my legs, for example. Regarding the cargo pockets - I have an Iphone 6 plus, which is huge, and the pockets don't accommodate it in the best way. It feels kinda awkward having it in there. But again - it doesn't fit in most other pockets either, so... But coming to think of it, I think most other cargo pockets are built military style on the outside of the facefabric so they can accommodate more stuff and expand. So what I said earlier isn’t quite correct, I think. I guess I just find it a little strange to have such voluminous pockets that aren’t that comfortable filled up.

    Some thoughts on the Field pant: The Field pant is easily the most constricting pair of pants I own in terms of ease of movement. I don't know if that says more about my collection of pants (which consist mainly of Acronym and super wide fitting denim and fatigue pants) or the cut of the Field pants. Allthough it is stated on Veilance page that the cut is articulated, this can't be to a major extent. There aren't any visible seems that point to articulation in the knees that I can find, for example. Regarding the cargo pockets, they are surprisingly big. But it's not that comfortable to fill them up with stuff, seeing that the pockets are 'built in' under the face fabric of the pants. Compared to the Acronym P10A, where the cargo pockets are constructed on to the face fabric of the pants, this makes objects in the Field pant cargo pockets press on the thighs, where the P10As don't have that same problem at all. Maybe it's unfair to compare those pants seeing that the construction of the cargo pockets are that different, but it's something I quickly noticed when first trying the Field pant on. I guess the Field pant 'built in'-style cargo pocket is the most common cargo pocket around, so most pants with cargo pockets offer the same feeling when stuffed. The material is pretty interesting. Allthough I was hoping the knit lining would add some more warmth for the cold winter. The material reminds me of a thinner version of the mainline Gamma AR-pants that I own. Both in handfeel and stretchiness. Visually the pants are super sleek and clean, so they look very on point.

    On a related note - the Monitor coat is awesome. The material is rather stiff, which makes me feel wellprotected from the elements. Combined with the mainline Cerium LT, the word sleeping bag comes to mind, as I remember have been used to describe the feeling of wearing the Monitor Down on here previously. Especially with the hood up. The hood construction is really impressive; it covers almost everything but the eyes when it’s fully cinched. I find the hood adjusters slightly unintuituve, however, so it’s a minor hassle to operate.

    First thoughts on the Sequent pants: Very lightweight with a semi-slim slim cut which allow for movement. They are not restrictive at all. The zippered front pockets weren’t as bad as I feared, and the zipper didn’t scratch unfomcortably on my hands. I’m rather tall at 190 cm (6ft3’’), so the pants are slightly cropped. However, when walking in the rain for half an hour my socks didn’t get wet, so it might not be a problem that they’re cropped. They are a little cold for the present temperature, which fluctuates between 0-5 degrees celsius. They don’t have a warm lining, which explained it. I’m waiting for a pair of field pants which do have fleece lining, so I assume they will be better suited for winter temperatures. More importantly - I’m now fully waterproof with a Monitor coat, Sequent pants and Goretex shoes. My dream has come true.

    Word. This is beyond impressive. Wow.

    I guess the usefulness of gore tex pants depends on where one lives. Where I live the temperature fluctuates between 0 and 15 celsius most of the year, with a lot of heavy rain. I'm not particularly fond of hauling an umbrella around with me, so I've scoured the web for good looking waterproof pants for years. All my Acronym and Outlier pants take at least an hour to dry when first soaked, which isn't very practical. That's why the Sequent pants really look interesting to me. Then there's the question of how they feel when you're inside in room temperature for a long period of time. I'll just have to buy a pair and test, I guess.

    Do you mind elaborating a bit? I have dreamt about good looking waterproof pants for years. Where do they fall short, in your opinion?

    So I’ve seen some comments on the Haedn overshirt, but what is the consensus on sizing? TTS or size up? From what I’ve gathered it doesn’t work that well as a layering piece, but does it allow easy movement when worn alone? Or is the cut constricting?

    WTB Veilance Field Pant, black, size 34. Hit me up if you have a pair you want to let go:)

    To all the owners of the field- or indisce pants: seeing that they are made with goretex windstopper material, how much water can they withstand? My experience with windstopper material in other garments is that it can shed quite a bit of water. How is it with the veilance pants?

    Anyone here have experience with the Arc’teryx Bora2 Mids?

    Would definitely recommend the Arcteryx cerium(down) or Atom(coreloft). Cerium is warmer than the Atom, but both are killer pieces. They come in different models - Allround(AR), light(LT) or superlight(SL), which differ in weight, warmth, face fabric(different denier=different durability), composite construction (the cerium models differ on whether they have down all over or coreloft at strategic places such as the shoulders and hood, the Atom on whether it has more breathable material along the sides of the torso and under the armpits) and with or without a hood. I would, however, dare to say that the models will be equally durable in urban environments. Seeing that you are looking for a jacket under a shell, I’d go for one of the lighter models. The LT models are the go to jackets in my environments, but it all depends on how cold it is. The cerium can compress into a tiny pocket and the 2017-model has some new pocket configurations and cinches at the waist. Comparing the Cerium LT with the Atom LT, the cerium will be warmer and can be compressed more, while the Atom will be more breathable.
