We all know the real question...

Will these ski pants make my ass look good?
Yes. Yes, they do. (Sethmo is on the right in blue).

Would the small be too small for a 5'5"...

Posted on

Would the small be too small for a 5'5" with 32 waist and 30 inseam? They don`t have medium, and I believe large is just too big... I believe the medium would be the perfect size for a more baggy fit, but maybe the small will work

Responded on

If you are looking for a loose fit I think you would need the Mediums. You could try the Smalls and simply return them if they don't fit but you would have to pay for return shipping.

Hi all...
I'm 6' 2" and waist 33"... what size should I get? What's the inseam on L?
many thanks

Responded on

The inseam on the M and L measures 32". According to Oakley's size chart, I would recommend a size Medium for you in this pant.

Responded on

I'm 5' 10", 33 waist and I use an XL.

Responded on

Seth,
thanks for answer... but... are you wearing some protection underpants... XL seems to me very very bagy.
Does a lenght differs between L and XL?
I have no possibility to try it before ordering:(

Responded on

Yes I do wear protection. This is not a baggy cut its regular fit. Not sure on length differences. Have a friend close to your height that uses the L more for the tighter fit for ski mountaineering aspects. What I've noticed with him is the cuff is higher up off the boot lower. I weigh 155lbs. Backcountry has a no questions asked return policy. Sounds like your leaning towards the L probably the right call in the end for you.

Disappointed...

Really well designed pants!

I picked up a pair of the 2010/11 version of these pants at the end of last season and they are Dermizax EV 30/20K rather than 3L Gore offered this year but so far the material is totally bomber and the design/thought that went into them is awesome. I have about 15 days on them so far this season with half of those on a splitboard and the other at the resort.

I can't believe that this is my first pair of bibs cause after these I'll never go back to pants. When touring, throwing skins in the bibs while riding is so much easier than stuffing them in your jacket. I really like the back bib as well because when changing over and taking off your shell I found that any snow that may still be on your backpack didn't end up soaking through my mid layer touring hoodie and eventually my baselayer. Inner thigh vents and 3/4 length leg zips make venting almost too easy and the two main pockets are exactly where they should be. An added touch which I didn't even realize what it was until the third time I wore them was the bottle opener sewn on to the pants, ha...the paint didn't last on that very long after!

Definitely recommended and this years pants are even better with 3L Gore!

So these pants are super light and awesome...I have a question though. What to layer underneath? What would I wear in cold weather? (which on the west coast for me will be 5-20 degrees F). What baselayers would anyone recommend?

Thanks

Responded on

HI! My BF rocks the Arc'teryx Phase SV tops/bottoms when wearing these...

Responded on

If you also have a good shell the Stoic Merino 200 1-Z would be a great option as a base layer!

Responded on

Fleece long underwear, there isn't an Oakley bottom in the line up unfortunately and I have no idea why. If its really cold (negatives) and I'm not hiking during the day I'll wear a the thiner past seasons Oakley Bottom as well. Dressing for what your going to be doing in layers it the best thing you can do, and cotton doesn't count as a layer and should not be worn skiing in the winter.

How is the sizing compared to the Primed...

Posted on

How is the sizing compared to the Primed bib from last year? The Sethmo jacket seems to have a bit more technical fit than the Primed jacket that I own. I'm 6'1" 185lbs and wear a size large Oakley Primed jacket, would I still be good with a large in the Sethmo pant?

Responded on

It is the same fit, the chest part of the bib and suspenders are much better. The bib part is lycra. All in all the this bib can be a pant or a bib, since the chest part can zip off. You should be good with a large.

Responded on

Unfortunately the larges were a bit too snug in the waist and a bit too short in the leg (I guess I have crazy long legs). I'm a bit worried that the XL will be a bit too baggy, so I ordered the Choice pants instead. Pretty bummed because these bibs were awesome (other than the sizing on me).

Looks good, but...

I had a chance to try these the sethmo pants and jacket up at Keystone last week. The pants/bibs fit great. The med had a tighter regular fit and the large was roomier but not baggy. The cider orange just pops and the versatility of the set up is great. My only concern was the the shell is pretty thin and super light which is good but I was afraid the material might not be that durable. Compared to other gortex pro-shell it seemed lacking in thickness and had me wondering if it would tear easily. I would definitely size up for layering because I doubt it would keep most people warm in below freezing temps because the jacket and pants are very thin even for a shell. I'm still considering buying the set up but I'm going to look around some more. I would say the design is superior overall for functionality though...lots of ways to set it up.

Responded on

5'8", 155 lbs...I received the jacket and pants in medium and like the fit. Enough room for layering.

Ok follow up to my review on 10 Nov. I received these as a gift for Christmas and just took them out at Breck for a trial run. Conditions...bluebird, 20 degrees, no wind, 6-8" of fresh, stayed on resort all day and all I can say is that I'm VERY DISAPPOINTED ON THE DURABILITY OF THESE PANTS. After two runs I looked down at the pants on the chair and found two small holes in my thigh area. WTF!! I didn't go through trees, I didn't fall, all I can think of is that they got there when I was carrying my kids skis.

I questioned the durability of these pants because the material was so thin on 10 Nov when I first tried them on, unfortunately my fears seem correct. They didn't even last one day. I got these because they were pro-shell and suppose to be super durable, take hits from a tree branch, etc. They couldn't even handle the easiest conditions without opening up. For $400 and pro-shell I expected these to last at least three to four seasons with ease. Well they are going back to Backcountry tomorrow and I'm going to replace them with the Orage Gibson pant. Hopefully the gortex soft shell will hold up better.

Other things to note after my one day in them. They are cold...you have to layer up real good to stay warm. Count on having to add another $80-$100 in good base and mid-layers if you want to use them in all conditions. Other things I would have liked to have seen is a cargo pocket(s), pass clip, mesh vents, and maybe some strategic lining for warmth.

I love the bib design though and the pants are super comfy, and the cut is superb, but they sacrifice durability for lightness. Toughen these bad boys up! For the price I expect more. For the price go with Arc'teryx or Orage. Better deal and more for the money in my opinion.

I re-rate these pants: design 4 stars, durability 1 star, value 2 stars (I have $150 pair of North Face that held up better than these), versatility 3 stars.

Overall rating 2.5 - 3 stars. Unhappy. I'm stuck with jacket because I didn't get it from backcountry . I'll review that tomorrow.

Size Comparison

I'm 6'3" 210 36-37" waist. I bought both the Xl and the XXl. The XL fit like a pair of jeans, Almost perfect. I went for the XXL for the baggy fit. The XXL only bulges at the waist.

Houston, we have Gore-Tex!

Been a long time in the works for us to get Gore in the line. First time I wore the suit I felt like I was forgetting something due to how light this is compared to previous 3 layer Shells. Nice side thigh to knee venting. No back pocket, no need. Removable chest bid. Cuff saver is reversed to the inside of the cuff for a cleaner look. Simple and light, it only gets better. Its a shell, so you need to layer!!

Just saw these and now I'm not sure what to think about these being 3L Gore Pro considering at the end of last season I picked up a pair of the 2010-11 Oakley Primed bibs (Dermizax EV 30/20K). The reviews for the pants are good but I can't help but wonder if I am going to regret going from a 2L Gore pants back to a material that isn't either Gore or eVent? That being said, I know that even Gore breaks down over time and that is why I'm replacing my current pair of Special Blend 2L Gore pants.

Don't get me wrong though, I picked the primed bibs up off of SAC so I can't get too worked up considering the price I paid. Overall, the construction of the primed bibs is bomber with everything in its right place. Can't wait to hit the skin track in them and finally have full zips to vent....and oh ya....did I mention that the fit and cut of the primed bibs even look sick on boarders. Over time I've come to realize that 98% of snowboard gear is pretty crappy with brutal waterproof/breathable ratings for way too much money so I've had to make the switch to skier gear that still has that boarder look and feel to it.

I'll update once the snow starts to fly and I've logged some miles in them on the split...

Hey Seth, thanks for the post. I decided to go with the full Seth Morrison setup, with the Gore Tex jacket/pants and the softshell. I was on the Pro Shell material last year, and was amazed at the solid construction but how light weight it was.

See you out there!
