I wore the Bugaboo ski pants for 5 consecutive days of hard skiing and they performed exactly as I hoped they would. They were comfortable, but more importantly, they kept me warm and dry with only a base layer underneath. If I would change anything, I would suggest making them a little shorter. I am 6' tall and they were about 2 inches too long.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these for a friend that is a skier and he loved them. They are thin enough that you can move and wear a base layer under them. They are perfect!

These pants are great! Wore them snowboarding this past weekend and they kept me warm and dry all night long. I am a short guy and I have a hard time finding pants that are a good fit lengthwise. I was very pleased to find that they offered these pants in a short option, and the pants actually fit. And for only $95, its a great value for your money.
I would recommend this product.

I received these pants as a gift over the holiday season. I'm pretty disappointed in the quality and durability of these pants. I use them for snowboarding and after the first day, the seams of the pant legs are already separating. I expected more from Columbia, and will not be purchasing any snow offerings from Columbia in the future.
I do not recommend this product.

These pants are fantastic.
FYI...Regular length is fine if your inseam is 34"-36".
Short is good for those with an inseam of 33" or less.
It would be nice if these were not seasonal items.
I would recommend this product.

When I ordered it, the representative told me they run about 2 sizes bigger, although this is a good quality item, you can not use any regular clothing underneath it.
It will only give room for some thermal clothing.
Besides of that, it is a good quality item.
I would recommend this product.

I use these in the upper Midwest for snowshoeing and snow blowing. The soft shell exterior sheds snowy buildup easily and helps keep the legs dry. The fit for large-short works very well over hiking boots and my frame.
Suggestion - reinforce the legs at the cuffs (inside) for abrasion resistance from snow shoes.
I would recommend this product.

This item is excellent quality material and construction that I have come to expect from Columbia.
The fit was true to size as past purchases while I have noticed that some newer styles have been sized a little tighter in waist and hip.
This is a medium weight insulated pant which I prefer versus the heat reflective styles.
The one thing lacking which I would have liked to have is the zippered side pocket at mid thigh thus a 4 rating in function.
I would recommend this pant to anyone who prefers to wear a light base layer with a medium weight insulated ski pant. Ideal for Colorado skiing in any conditions other than warm spring.
I would recommend this product.

The first time I wore these ski pants it was 4 degrees and I was surprise how well they did. Wearing a base layer I was warm. I ordered the large and overall fit is good.

These are very warm and nice to wear. The quality seems good and perfect for skiing. I wear 38 waisted jeans and bought the XL size and it fits well. I think you want to error on the larger side given you'll have layers underneath, and the waist has adjustable straps to tighten them up a bit. Only issue with size to be aware of is the length. These seem to run kind of long in length. The extra length won't hurt you, but it does seem like you're dragging the bottom of your pants everywhere. Perhaps the short model is better suited for those of us that need the larger sizes, like XL, for our waist, but 32 and under inseams.
I would recommend this product.

After 20-25 days out skiing the seem on the side of one of the legs failed and started to fall apart. Also I would still find myself getting cold after about 4-6 hours out skiing unless i put a 2nd layer of insulation between the pant and base-layer.
Outside of snow-sports the pants would keep me warm just fine. also, reguardless of time spent sitting in the snow the only time water made it thru was a early spring ski when i went thru a puddle.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased these pants because I had a 20 year old pair of Columbia shell pants that had held up great and it was time for an update. The waterproofing works well and the fit is true to size with the length being a little baggy. The bad is that after less than a season of use the inside seam of the pant is coming apart. There is also no reinforcement on the bottom inside cuff of the pant so I am starting to get small cuts in the fabric from my skis.
I do not recommend this product.

Ran these pants through the full gauntlet while backpacking, the expected snow storm was rain for two days, during which these pants held up so well. When the snow(slush) did begin to fall the insulation was the perfect amount. Pair with some good leggings and their even better. Very satisfied with these pants, only thing they could use is another pocket or two..
I would recommend this product.
