I bought these pants for my husband. We moved to Chicago and quickly realized we were not equine for this brutal cold winters. These pants were used as outdoor pants anytime we had to be more than 20 minutes outside.... Usually when we are walking out dog. He loves it and the fit is great. Unfortunately I didn't give it a 5 because the black was out of stock. He still loved the color he got and it has been very useful during these subzero temperatures!

I bought a pair of Columbia ski pants a couple years ago and they've worked well; when I wanted another pair of pants I started here.
I'm not big on bright colors so when I saw the Tradewinds Grey in sort of a cloud patern I checked them out (the actual color has a slight light blue tinge to the grey that's shown). They also came in a 'Short' which I need to prevent the cuffs from dragging when I'm not wearing ski boots.
The pants have worked well for me and have been warm, the 'foil' type interior does require you to generate some heat so if you just walked outside and stood there they may not be the best choice (you might notice this on 'first chair'). I however have been warm and appreciate that they're not bulky. I've never felt any moisture or wetness even in snowy conditions.
The cargo pants style is useful for carrying stuff, but I could probably do without the hip pockets. The thigh zippers are useful for hot days, but do add to a generally busy look. Another minor nit is that the rear belt loops are on the side and center so cross type suspenders pull oddly (I've solved this by making them center pull).
What has surprised me is how many complements I've received on these pants from both friends and strangers. I now feel the need to buy a less bulky parka to complement the look. To be honest I'm not generally too stylish so this is something new for me.
All in all I like these pants very much and would buy them again, they serve my needs well and stand out from the crowd. Well done Columbia.
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.

I'm a size 33/32 so I originally ordered a medium short and a medium regular. I didn't really find to much difference in the "short" and "regular" versions of the pants but the medium was very snug. Ended up getting a large and it worked. Great pants, durable, kept me warm on a day that was in the teens.
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.

These pants are stylish and highly functional. They're great as a light weight shell worn over tights. So far they've held up great on the slopes in Minnesota with temperatures as low as 0 degrees F. Plenty of vents are available for when the weather warms up. Lots of pockets too. Great pants.
I would recommend this product.

I used these pants for snowboarding. For reference I am a 34 waist and I purchased a large they fit well I got this size to wear layers. On the first use the stitching in the groin came apart. I repaired it myself to then have no issues with it the next use. However, the next time I used the pants the seam began coming apart on the back of the pant. The material also becomes ripped easily. I fell only a few times during the day and there were multiple rips that you could see starting. The design of the pant and how well it keeps you warm is great however the poor material used is the issue.
I do not 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.

Little did I know one of my ski buddies has the same pants. We are both pleased as they perform well. The short length sizing is just what we both needed. Skied them in 8 degrees and was nice and warm.
I would recommend this product.

I recently purchased a pair and went snowboarding once, then I used them to shovel snow. I use a belt to keep them secure. When I removed my belt the front left belt loop ripped off the top. I love the pants, there awesome! Just wasn't expecting that to happen my second time using them.
I would recommend this product.

My biggest concern while buying pants had always been the length, my size is 32 waist and 30 length; for a short guy like me it's always a challenge to find gear that fit. Columbia offers these pants with short length too and they sit perfect on me. I bought size S/SHORT. Overall the pants are of excellent quality and although there is no padding I found them warm enough while wearing base layer. They are waterproof too that is a desirable feature when skiing in snowfall.
For this price you won't find any better, I looked.
I would recommend this product.

These pants replaced a pair of another manufacturer's ski pants that were destroyed - my gear gets a lot of action. When I first used these pants I was amazed at the amount of room they offered by using the reflective layer instead of heavier insulation. They're a little baggy, which gives room to move without worrying you're gonna blow a seam in a wipeout (happened to me twice on other pants). First use was on a 5 degree night with just baselayer underneath-cold, especially around the leg vents. Just had them out for a full day of skiing in 27 degree weather with just baselayer and the vents open the whole day- perfect! Good array of pockets, comfortable to wear, reliable and the black print looks great! Probably going to buy a second pair!
I would recommend this product.

I got these for ground-based winter activities where I needed a bit of an upgrade from my Passo Alto heat pants. These are made of the same nylon twill Omni Tech fabric as my Columbia Interchange ski jacket. Cinch the velcro tabs down on the waist and they are the heighth of comfort. 34"W, 32"L, and the Large Regular fit perfectly. The gaiters strap securely over my hiking boots. They flex and move pretty well on hikes. The leg vents are phenomenal and very welcome - Omni Heat really gets warm as you get moving. For sedentary activities I would put a fleece pant or long undies beneath. For high-level activities down into the 30's F, these are all I need. Completely water- and snow-proof. Move EXTREMELY well as hikers for being ski pants - not bulky AT ALL. Perfect complement to my winter adventure gear!
I would recommend this product.
