I just got the pants and have since skied them for 6 days at Steamboat and 2 days at Mt. Snow. So far no tears on the inside cuff, has a very heavy duty reinforcement. Very light but definitely need some layering under them I prefer no insulation and would rather layer so they are perfect for me. Also the bib is a great height. comes up right under the chest in the front. I think it is perfect because it is high enough to keep the snow out on a powder day or after a spill but not so high that you feel like mom just bundled you up to go sledding in 1st grade. By far my favorite ski pants in a 21 year career. Now if only they made them in pink to match my jacket, skis, bindings, poles, and chap stick. lol j/k this is a serious pair of pants.
