Your legs carry you from one adventure to the next, so make sure they get the warmth they need with our ultralight down pants. Premium 850-fill goose down provides insulation without bogging you down, while a DWR finish sloughs water when you're wearing them around camp and in the snow. Cinch top waist, with shock cord and cord lock, allows you to tighten or loosen them as necessary. Elastic ankle cuffs help protect your legs from drafts.

At Goosefeet Gear, we know that "one size" doesn't "fit all," especially when it comes to pants. That's why our down pants are highly customizable. In addition to fabric, color, fill and exact body measurements, you can choose to have partial to full side zippers, and whether or not you want your pants baffled.


The most common method of construction is known as "sewn through," where the outer material is stitched directly into the inner lining, separating the down in different pockets and keeping it from settling or bunching. "Sewn through" uses less fabric, making it the lightest option. Sewn-through construction it is less warm than baffled construction because the down is pinched at the seams, meaning loft is reduced to zero at each point of stitching, creating potential "cold spots."

"Baffled" construction means that there have been thin strips of material sewn between the top and the bottom layer of fabric, giving each separate pocket of down its own three-dimensional cube. This creates much less pinching of the down at the perimeter, maximizing the loft of the down, and minimizing cold spots. Baffled construction is the best method for optimizing the loft and warmth of the down fill. Due to the use of extra material, baffled construction makes the pants slightly heavier in overall weight. We recommend at least 5 . 5 OZ of fill be used with the “Baffled” option.

All of our products are made with high-quality materials to the strictest quality standards. To ensure your product has a long life, we recommend reading over our CARE INSTRUCTIONS.


8D – This new material has an amazing next-to-skin feel and is ultra light-weight, but still has a DWR treatment and is 100% downproof! The 8D fabric is great for saving weight for both the liner or shell fabric.


20D – This nylon is the most durable fabric we offer. It has a DWR treatment applied to the outside surface, so it will allow small amounts of water to bead up and slide right off!



Each pair of down pants is stuffed with a varying amount of 850 fill power DownTek down. You can add extra down for increased loft and warmth if you wish.

We recommend at least 5 . 5 OZ’s of fill be used with the “Baffled” option.

The following is an estimated temperature rating for the fill levels:


2 . 5 OZ   40F
3 . 5 OZ   30F
4 . 5 OZ   20F
5 . 5 OZ   10F
6 . 5 OZ     0F
7 . 5 OZ -10F
8 . 5 OZ -20F

Each pair of down pants we make is custom fit, just for you. Accurate measurements ensure the best fit; please follow the following guidelines when measuring. If you fall between to whole numbers, it is best to round up. For example: If your waist is 32 . 5″, order a 33″.

1 . WAIST – Around your waist, about where your pants sit.
2 . HIPS – Around the WIDEST point of your hips/seat.
3 . THIGH – Around the WIDEST point of your thigh.
4 . CALF – Around the WIDEST point of your calf.
5 . INSEAM – The length from your crotch down to the ankle, or wherever you want the pants to end. If you want down shorts, measure to the knee!

    Customer service was great. I ordered two pairs, one for me and one for my boyfriend. I messed up entering my boyfriends measurements. The page reloaded and went back to the default entries and I missed it. Ben was super helpful and gave me a discount on the new pair. The pair for me fit great. I can’t wait to field test them with some winter camping.

    Comfortable fit! Great way to keep warm in the sleeping bag when the temps drop.

    I’ve worn my down pants on 2 trips now… how did I live so long without it! Now I don’t need a colder sleeping bag, I can just wear my down pants and jacket. Camping at 12,000 in the summer is cold in the evenings, now I don’t need to go in the tent as soon as it gets chilly. I got the lighter material on the outside and inside… seems durable enough, I will always sit on a foam pad in these pants. Also, I love that it was custom, my dimensions are not a “normal” womans. It fits perfectly. I should have got them a little longer because when you sit it creeps up as all pants do and my ankles get a little cold.

    Outstanding products! Ben does such wonderful work. He’s been at this a while and it shows in his skilled attention to design and execution. After ordering and using the down balaclava (with overfill), I decided to get some down pants. As a long-time uphill hiker and runner I have had trouble in the past finding pants that fit my “well-developed” backside and thighs without binding when I flex and bend.. Because of this, I especially appreciated the ability to specify waist, thigh and calf measurements. I got the down pants wit 5 1/2 ounces of fill and the fit was great! Roomy but not too baggie. I would absolutely recommend Goose Feet Gear products.

    After enjoying the warmth of the GFG down balaclava, I decided to get a pair of the down pants with 5 -1/2 oz fill. They are great! Ben does wonderful work. I was especially pleased with the ability to specify exactly what my waist, thigh and calf measurements are. As a chronic mountain hiker and runner, it is often hard to get pants that fit my “uphill strengthened” backside and thighs without binding when I flex or stretch. These pants are ideal: roomy enough without being too baggie. I strongly recommend them and any Goose Foot Gear products!

    I have not used it yet but it feels amazing and a great fit!

    Asked for these for Christmas 2 years ago for warmth around camp while backpacking, and I couldn’t be happier! Sure I get teased cause i’m wearing them in the cooler summer evenings, but for someone who stays up way past sunset to photograph stars, they are wonderful! I run cold so these help me tolerate standing still for long periods in cool weather. They compress in my pack very well and weigh almost nothing. The sizing is perfect.

    Great down pants. I bought these for backpacking in the mountains. I haven’t used them yet for that purpose but I have worn them around home. They are comfortable, they articulate well and don’t prevent movements and are very light and warm. Very pleased.

    i LOVE them. Love love love them

    They are warm, light, shed water.
    They are gorgeous in every sense.
    I wore them pretty much daily December thru February, and still wear them days like today April 26, with effective temp around 34’F, gale winds and wet squalls.

    I’m 5’8,” 120lbs, got 10D shell and liner, no baffles, 5.5 oz fill, 36 “ side zip (which go up so high I can whip off the pants over any boot).

    In convo with Ben, we worked out short rise, small butt, more fitted leg. The pants fit beautifully, sit lightly on my hips with no bunching or pooching. The down is so lofty that at first the legs rode up but that stopped in a few days as the down settled.

    People comment all the time.
    “Awesome pants”
    “Please, may i ask . . where did you get those pants?”
    “what are you wearing?!”
    “are they warm?”
    “cool pants”
    “hot pants”
    “Where did you get those pants?!”

    I recommend these w/o reservation. Thank you Ben and gang

    Second winter using these and they are really great. Selected a 5.5oz fill with sewn-through construction and a 30″ zipper (29″ inseam). I can put these own over heavy boots no problem. I was nervous at first about getting a custom sewn / fit garment from my measurements but after talking with Ben (super awesome) he made a great product that is warm and very light. The fit is perfect and love how high they come up on the waist. I also own a pair of the down socks as well.

    Brilliant gear, light and warm — replaced several other pairs of inferior products! Bought a second pair for my wife, at her request — the ultimate accolade!

    “one of my most favorite things ive ever owned. it feels like my legs are living in a cloud” Fiance. I got these for my fiance and shes been wearing them almost every day around the house. She loves them, very high quality. Just bought a pair for myself. the fit looks great if you measure them out.

    It might be nice to have generic sizes S,M,L, XL so these could be gifted easier.

  14. Greg (verified owner)

    These are great! The fit is perfect, and the guides to measuring, choosing materials and build details were clear. Looks like top quality materials and construction.
