Just got my asylum pants in the mail. Had to return my medium for a small, which fits perfectly (31x32 pants). The quality of materials and workmanship is outstanding, definitely at least as good as arc'teryx. The articulated knees are great, the belt and waist is well-designed and the gaiters look beefy. Can't wait to get out skiing in these! One thing I question is the design of the two front pockets is such that the area immediately around the zippers pulls up when i bend down or raise my legs, as for a turn snowboarding or taking a steep incline backpacking. Not sure if that'll effect the waterproofness of the zipper long term, but I'll cross that bridge if/when I get there.
