This would be my choice:

Arcteryx Atom LT pants ( http://www.arcteryx.com/Product.aspx?EN/Mens/Pants-Shorts/Atom-LT-Pant# )

The fabric is super nice and more resistant and Not Shiny like the MH and patagonia nylons.

Good point. Slick stuff moves faster on slick snow.

True!

But the biggest benefit is the durability of the fabric against normal use. The Igniter fabric is IMHO a bit to easily damaged. Dunno if they changed it for this year though.
