Here's what others have to say...

How will these hold up as alpine ski pants? Are they water resistant enough?

Not well, they will fend of some snow that may splash up on you but, they will fail miserably in heavy wet snow or rain.

Looking at these for downhill ski pants. How will they hold up in wet conditions?


Great pant for hiking and snowshoeing

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

I have used these on my last two hikes and the pants performed fantastic. One hike in the rain and the other in freezing temps both times I was warm and dry along with a under layer,very durable and not restrictive.

Are these pants available in medium? I am...

Are these pants available in medium? I am 5'11" and weigh 185lbs with a 34" waist. I think that the large will be to big on me.

I agree with you. I think that the Large would be too baggy on you and the Mediums would fit you perfectly. We should hopefully be getting these restocked in the next couple weeks so please keep checking back as we should be getting your size in shortly.

I'm trying to figure out what size I should...

I'm trying to figure out what size I should go with on these. I am 5'10, 160lbs, 32 waist, and 30 inseam. I want a more athletic fit without it being too baggy. I fit in a Medium in most pants but feel it might be too big in these. What should I do?


Normally I would call that a medium too but Norrona's sizing is a little different as you can see from the chart listed with this product page. I would suggest a small in the Norr�na Svalbard Flex1 Softshell Pant for you.


Great Outdoor Utility Pants

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

I have only used these for hiking and climbing, and have even started using them for casual use to keep my legs warm on cold nights, but these definitely are great pants to have. Warm, durable, water resistant, flexible/non-restricting, overall comfortable pants to wear. These are great for any outdoor adventure you may find yourself in. I suspect they would also make great ski/snowboarding pants, but I have yet to try them out in this function. This combined with the Trollveggen Stretch Tights would make an excellent snow combination I feel. I will try it out next time I get a chance to go skiing.

Hey Shawn Cash, You said you have a 32"...

Hey Shawn Cash,

You said you have a 32" waist and you use the Medium in these pants. Do they fit really loose around the waist for you, or do they fit reasonably well with a little adjustment to the waist straps? Thanks.

Not Shawn Cash, but my two cents - I have these - i am a 33 and the pants fit me perfect (at least how I like them to fit) - if you are a true 32 the waist straps will be adjust just fine - if you like a Patagonia/Westcomb sizing (running a bit large) keep in mind these are euro fit (which I like cuz there isn't extra material flapping away)...for my money Norrona (as far as fit) and Westcomb (as far as materials) are where it is at these days

I like the design of these pants but I...

I like the design of these pants but I have a question about the warmth. I plan on using these for ice climbing, alpine climbing and backcountry skiing, primarily in NH. I plan to were a smartwool midweight baselayer underneath and I have a pair of lightweight shells that I pack (but rarely put on). I know warmth depends on the person but if someone who has used these could give me an idea of wind resistance and insulation beyond what is said in the description I would be grateful.

Well, they are not Winter pants so you absolutely want to wear something under. I'd say you can use them without anything under up to +5�C.

Backcountry skiing? If you mean Nordic skiing, then they might do the job for you but if we talk deep powder here - you should get real ski outfit my man.

But anyway, you talk about activity in cold temperatures here so if I were you, I would buy something warmer.

They are perfect between Summer all the way through Fall.

I just put them down to my wardrobe for the Winter time.

The bottom line:

Seriously great pants, but not for Winter activities.

Hope that helps.

Depends upon how hot you run. If you're ripping bong hits and kicking the hacky sack between powder laps you might get chilly but if your moving and actually skiing, these pants are awesome. I wear them with only a wind brief down to 10 F and then with a light layer below that. Great high output winter pant.

I am 32 waist and 32 inseam. What size...

I am 32 waist and 32 inseam. What size should I go for? Mtks..

A small would fit your 32" waist, but only measures 30.5 inseam (it also appears to be out of stock), A medium has a waist measurement of about 34", with a 31.5 inseam.

A medium would probably fit fine, although it might also be excessively loose around the waist. Norrona products tend to fit smaller.

Best Answer

I am a 32" waist and 30 inseam and I use a medium and they work just fine. If you are feared that you will have too much waist space remember that these pants can be tightened up 2 different ways: waist straps are provided on the pants, and they have belt loops! I would not go small because of your inseam, go medium:)

I'm curious about the accuracy of the...

I'm curious about the accuracy of the colors depicted in the photos of these pants. I saw a video on the Norr�na website of the "supernova" color, which looked darker and more grayish then the still pics. In particular, I'd like to know if "space" is a good representation, or if the actual color is closer to navy or something other shade of blue.any help would be appreciated.

It is just a touch darker than the space picture on here, just a tiny bit.
