Cover your ass. It's a code to live by when you're in the mountains during winter, and there's no better way than with the Mountain Hardwear Men's Returnia Insulated Pants. Their Dry.Q membrane keeps your keester dry, and the taped seams prevent moisture from seeping through when you burn through through snow at face melting speeds on your skis or board. Thermal.Q insulation makes lift rides seem a helluva lot shorter, since your legs will be warm, and the internal boot gaiters keep your socks dry when you've made it your personal mission to flatten out every last stash of fresh snow in the resort.

- Q & A
Too large and baggy
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Large Long
This was a replacement for a different pair of pants that hasn't been proved waterproof enough. It looks very good and to be fair I didn't use it, so can'r say anything about performance. The reason I returned was that it is baggy and very large. Most of my ski gear is a solid large and after consulting with one of the 'gear heads' we decided to oder the 'Large Long' given my 34 inseam measurements. It's huge and would have been very uncomfortable in the slopes, also the baggy design is somehow obsolete and should only be used if you have the body to fill in.
My two cents.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large long
They fit great and are very warm. Only thing I don't like about them is that the vents don't have any mesh in them to stop snow from going right in.
Affordable, warm, dry
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size

Gave these to my Brother-in-Law and he is stoked. Good fit, good quality, great price.
