I had a pair of Holden Standard Skinny's for four years. I used them until I ripped an entire leg from crotch to knee. They were my favourite pants. I may have found a replacement in the Meade Cargo.
True to Holden form, the Meade is well constructed. My initial concern was that these pants would be a little baggier than I wanted. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were roomy and moved easily without coming off as baggy. Part of the problem I had with the standard skinny was that they were too slim. The Meade stikes the perfect balance between functionally roomy and stylistically slim.
With 20k waterproofing, I never had to worry about getting wet, although admittedly I didn't have to go up against any really rainy or heavy weather.
I did notice that the heels had ripped through in a couple places from walking and/or clipping into my bindings. I wasn't exactly cautious with these pants but I wasn't careless either, so I'm a little disappointed to see how easily they tore through.
On the whole, I found the Meade Cargo to be a stylish, functional pant that I would easily recommend to a friend. At approx. $250 MSRP you're dishing out for a quality return. Just make sure to take better care of your gear.
