Don't let the current 3 star rating fool you...
I picked these pants up near the end of this season. I preferred the Morrell color so I went with the insulated version (my only available option). The web color you see here is close to the color of pants in reality.
I'm 5'9 in the 170's, athletic build and the medium pants fit well. The waist isn't super baggy but not restricting either. I'm shorter and opted for the regular length (32 inseam). The additional length was never a problem wearing my snowboard boots. With these pants you won't look like you're attending a rave and you won't look like someone painted them on your legs. Overall a great look and fit IMO (picture included).
These are pretty warm pants. I went to Snowshoe, WV on March 5, 2013 and never felt chilly at all. Granted it was late in the season and spring was approaching. It was around 31 degrees farenheit and I did not open up the thigh vents that rest on the outside of each thigh. If I would have done so I assume they would have ventilated well.
6.5 hours of snowboarding and the only wetness I experienced was from not having a powder skirt in my jacket, which didn't keep snow out in the times where I did wipe out. (Arc'teryx Gamma MX Hoody).
Can you ski in these? I don't see a zipper...
Can you ski in these? I don't see a zipper at the bottom of the leg to adjust gaiters or access ski boot easily.
Tomek - yep, these will work well for skiing. They are wide enough to fit a ski boot and the gaiter is an elastic bottom that allows you to slip it either over or under your boot.
I have these in M 5'11 175# . Use exclusively for skiing and they are great. Little chilly at -10F but those days you can muscle thru it . Well made but not the best I've had. Better for west than northeast
