Have only worn one weekend so far. Very comfortable both in the cold teen degree morning and the low 40s afternoon.
I wear 34+ (depends on the slacks :-) with 32 inseam. These are a bit long and come lower on my ski boots than others. Large fits my waist comfortably. The powder cuffs are very tight, which helps protect the batteries for my boot warmers from getting lost. The cargo packets are too well designed to keep snow out, with an extra fold for protection. That also makes getting things in and out a bit difficult. Real test will be tomorrow when skiing temps will be below zero to start.
Had difficulty with the "Fit" indicator at top of review. Pants are very slightly small at waist (or I am slightly big) but also long or large in the leg. So I left it at true but with reservations
I would recommend this product.

Great fit and not very bulky, I'm a 34 waist and the pant has plenty of room around the waist but the excess can be taken up easily by the adjusting the sides. It is difficult to find pants short enough for me (inseam 30) but these pants are perfect in length.
I would recommend this product.

Wasn't sure if I should have gotten the frost or the dark pant when shopping online, so I went with Frost and it was a hit. Many friends and people asked about the pants. It was cool. A little different than the black that everyone has on the slopes. True to size and great quality. I got an online discount which made it even more of a score.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these pants on a whim. I don't need them but I got a good deal at my local store so I went for it. I decided to try them out on a cold, rainy day and I was more than pleased. Living in FL has turned me into a baby when it comes to cold weather. I continue to wear them any time I go out in the rain if the temperature drops below my comfort level. They fit well with a small baselayer or over a pair of jeans if I'm just looking to stay dry. Nice and toasty.
I would recommend this product.

These pants seem short wasted (not enough room in crotch). The first day of use was wet snow that melted when it landed on you. After only one ride up the chair lift, my seat was wet. I seemed to be dry everywhere else.
I do not recommend this product.

These pants are great! They're not too thick and bulky, but keep you warm and dry.
They were an early Christmas present for a 2015 trip to Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado during that week. We did a lot of snowshoeing and got up high - above 11,000 ft. It was very cold and windy as well with temperatures in the single digits and low teens Fahrenheit. I was actually a little concerned with the layer of Thinsulate insulation because I sweat a lot, especially while hiking up mountains. These pants were replacing a ventable/breathable wind-breaker pant that I wore along with sweat repelling thermal underwear. I was pleasantly surprised. The pants along with the thermal underwear were perfect! They did not cause me to sweat any more than usual, and I actually appreciated the extra warmth and insulation that the pants provided compared to the old ones.
These pants have plenty of pockets; something that my old ones did not have. The thigh pockets have velcro flaps which allowed for easy removal of my cell phone to take pictures. The hip pockets have zippers which are perfect for more security, as well as zippered rear pockets.
I loved the form and fit of the pants as well. They look good on you! The waist can be easily adjust with velcro straps on either side of the waist and are very comfortable without a belt, but I wore a belt during the climbs and would recommend that. While hiking up, my old pants would bind at the knees and pull the pants down around the buttocks, but these are formed just right and don't have these issues.
As for keeping snow out of your boots, the inner liner comes down nice and tight. I wore a high (ankle high) hiking boot, not a mid, and the liner never popped above the boot even after all of the uphill hiking.
You can definitely use these as a ski pant, but I'm not sure if they are "true" ski pants. The only area for improvement that I saw while snowshoeing was that the lower part of the pants could be tighter around the ankles. My snowshoes hit the lower part of the pants a few times because of how wide they were; not very often or consistently, just a few times. Definitely not a deal breaker! Like I said, I love these pants! The pants are wider to allow wearing a ski boot, but that's not required for a hiking boot while snow shoeing.
No issues after a solid week of continuous use. You will not regret having these pants!
I would recommend this product.

The pants are of excellent quality but the waist of the XL measures 38 when fully extended,smaller when adjusted in rather than 40 - 43 that the size chart lists. The legs have plenty of room for a baselayer and midlayer, the length is extra long. Someone with a 36" waist wearing 2 layers underneath would have a hard time being comfortable in them. Will go find a store to try them on before I order online again. Going skiing later this week and I'll be renting again.
I would recommend this product.

Great pants for skiing/snowboarding, very warm without being uncomfortably so. Make sure to have a baselayer underneath, the omni-heat still feels weird against bare skin. Very waterproof for snowboarders who sit in the snow all day, and easy to move in.
Does run fairly large. I'm 5'11 and 200, and the large is still pretty baggy on me, especially at the calf/ankle region. Not so bad with ski boots on, but with regular shoes I have to be pretty careful not to trip on them.
I would recommend this product.

Problem with pocket zipper
onJanuary 2, 2014
Hi, I really liked these pants. I bought in Marshalls. The side pocket was not sewn correctly and it frayed the side of zipper so I returned to Marshalls. However, I would love another pair in the color black which I had. Do you carry then in black, size small? I used to teach snowboarding and can only have black.

The pants seem to be pretty nice in terms of functionality. Reflective material makes them not heavy or bulky, and good if layers are needed. I'm a 32x30 and the Medium/Short fit well in the waist, but just slightly long in the leg.
My only real complaint would be with the pant leg opening. The bottom of the pant leg has 2 parts: The inner leg is presumably designed to be snug against the ankle (to keep snow out), with the exterior being wider to go over boots. The problem is that the inner portion is too loose. The unstreached elastic (to be snug around your ankle) measures 17 inches. My ankle measures 9 1/2 inches! What medium sized, short person has a 17 inch ankle? Can still be tucked into a boot, but certainly not how I would have designed them.
I would recommend this product.

I use these for snowboarding and they work great. Bottom of legs fit around my boots nicely. They keep me warm when it gets really cold night boarding and when it is warm the leg vents work great to let my legs breathe. I ended up needing a size bigger than what was recomended, I am about on the line though. If you are close I recomend a size bigger.
I would recommend this product.
