I had been eying these for a while and finally purchased them. I haven't used them for skiing yet - but I already love them and can't wait to try them out this winter. I'm 5.4, 120 lbs, and usually an XS in ski pants. My dilemma normally is that ski pants are too long, so when I read that these fall shorter I thought they might be perfect for me, and they ARE! I have a 30" inseam in pants, and that's what these seem to be, at least for the XS and S sizes. Since someone wrote that they run smaller, I bought an S, and they fit me perfectly. Someone wrote that the they could be a bit more flattering in the back, and I agree, but the pants are made for lots of room to move in the rear and knees, so in terms of functionality for backcountry skiing they should be perfect. Finally, I usually am not a fan of bibs and mostly ski without using the suspenders. These still work for that, they are snug in the waist so the elastic and belt keeps them up so you don't have to worry about the bathroom issue but can still have suspenders on deep powder days. Enjoy!
