Waterproof protection and soft comfort can coexist.
You want waterproof protection you can count on, but you don't want the rough, tarp-like side-effects. The Norrona Men's Narvik Gore-Tex 2L Performance Shell Ski Pants use a two-layer Gore-Tex membrane that gives this pant guaranteed waterproof protection, and the nylon shell remains surprisingly soft so you don't feel like you're wearing a crinkly hardshell. They nylon used for the shell is also recycled to minimize Norrona's footprint on the wonderful environment that we all love to play in. And because Norrona's products are sold in the US exclusively by backcountry.com, you won't come across a ton of lookalikes.
The Narvik has a baggy fit to accommodate multiple layers for frigid days, and it leaves plenty of room for the freedom of movement you need to hit the park's halfpipe. There are zippers at the inner thighs in order to ventilate any excess heat when you work up a sweat, and the mesh lining prevents any snow from seeping in when the zippers are open. Gaiters keep snow out of your boots, and water-resistant zippers protect you in ways that most pants don't. Norrona's proprietary Custom-fit waist system offers a simple way to cinch the waist on the fly, and the Snap seal system connects to complementary jackets in order to completely block out the bad weather. Norrona reinforced the lower legs with Cordura so you can ski in this pair of pants for multiple seasons.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
Only worn these a few days but really like them. They have a really comfy inner liner and I didn't even need a baselayer under them with temps in the low 20's, so they may be a little warm in a couple weeks. Great features and really like the snap seal system. Works way better than any zip in system and is better than patagonia's because it snaps all the way around. I'm 6'1, 170 and the medium fits great. If you're any taller go with the large for the length.

The Norrona website says that this pant has the zip-seal system as well (connecting the pant to a compatible jacket). Backcountry just says snap seal. Just wondering which one is correct.

I am 5'7. 180 lbs and usually wears medium because my thigh is 24 inches. What size would be best for me? I don't want to look saggy
Great pants, great fit, as usual from Norrona. A couple things to note, these do have a baggy fit, but not too baggy. I'm about 5'10" 150, and the medium fits perfect. For comparison, the Patagonia Powder Bowl pants fit much baggier. Also, the blue picture is a bit misleading. There are actually 3 different shades of blue on these pants, which actually looks quite a bit better in my opinion. See attached photo.
Only gripe is I wish they had a full side vent, can get a little warm.
