    Take your best shot.

    Take your best shot on the ski hill this winter with the Men's Trickshot Pants from Outdoor Research. These burly mountain pants feature Pertex Shield and softshell outers with fully taped seams to prevent any moisture seeping in. With both inner and outer thigh vents, these pants can easily be opened up to prevent overheating on the way up the skintrack. When it's time to come down in the deep stuff, the internal ankle gaiters are there to keep any errant snow from riding up where it doesn't belong. Scuff guards at your ankles keep the pants from being sliced by inadvertently placed ski edges, and a Recco reflector tops off the safety features of this versatile pant.

    Going Back

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: med

    I'm a 33-34 waist and the medium fit really well. Zippers vents all well located. Really wanted to like these but the fabric was too heavy and thick feeling. The mini checkerboard lining is too thick and I'm sure wont slide easily over most base layers.

    Just received, look promising

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    Disclaimer: I have not yet used these pants in the snow.

    So the sizing chart for these was kinda weird, so I ordered smaller to be on the safe side of length. I'd say they are fairly true to size. I wear a 33-34" waist and the medium (chart says 32") was way too small for me. So I returned and got the large.

    The large was just right, so I'd say the waist is a 33/34" instead of 35. Also, the length is definitely at least a 33" inseam, a tad long for me. The legs are quite form fitting up in the thigh and knee area (I have big legs/rear from soccer/cycling) and get a lot wider at the bottom. Kinda have a bell bottom look, but I imagine they'll look normal with snowboard boots on.

    I love the stretchy, softshell material that these are made of, allowing plenty of movement despite the snug fit. Definitely different than a normal waterproof shell pant, however also different than all the other softshells I've had from North Face and Marmot. This one almost has a rubbery feel to the outside instead of a porous foam, so I don't see it ever soaking up water like TNF Apex with the DWR worn off. I'm taking a chance on the Pertex stuff since I've never heard of it, but they say it's 20,000mm+ waterproof, so that's a big claim to be plain wrong. (all taped seams, hope the pocket zips hold up too)

    The non-removable lining is pretty thin, almost mesh-like, and has a checker pattern. I'd compare it to the new Under Armour Coldgear Infrared. The inside thigh vents have mesh and the outside thigh vents don't, but they have a 2 way zipper so you can open small gaps in the top and bottom. Additionally, each pocket (3 front, 1 back) is basically a vent because of the mesh lining, so you can really get some air flowing in these things.

    Bottom boot gaiter seems a bit small, hope it'll stretch over my boots. No zipper for easier access and no lace hook, but the gaiter is tight, so I don't see any snow getting past it.

    I'll update this after I try em out.

    Just came back from a week in Park City, UT so I had a good chance to try out these pants in a variety of conditions. I'm a snowboarder, so I'm sitting and kneeling a lot on the snow, way more than a skier or hiker would. I'll start out by saying I'm impressed and keep my rating of 4 stars, almost 5. -----

    First of all, it was a very warm week in Utah, so there was a good mix of warm and cold weather. A couple days on the mountain, I was comfortable hanging out at lunch time in a t-shirt, and the other days it was in the 20s and snowing. These pants were fine in all conditions and I was never uncomfortable. The thicker softshell material and mesh lining inside meant that on the warmer days, I was able to wear gym shorts underneath and function normally. Not like a shell that would have frozen my legs when kneeling. When it was cold at 11k feet or at night when tubing, a simple UA base layer kept me nice and toasty. If I did warm up, the vents work REALLY well. Mesh vents on the inner thigh, kinda wish the outer vents had mesh as well. At least they have an upper and lower zipper so I can create two small holes on either side, one at the hip and one at the knee, instead of a big gaping hole in the side of my pants when I'm hot. -----

    To answer my question above, the boot gaiters easily fit over my big snowboard boots. The strange thing is that the upper part of the gaiter is a very thin mesh, so moisture/snow can get up there if you have a bad wipeout. Don't think it actually happened to me. I kind of wish these weren't so flared at the bottom, almost gives a bell bottom look because the thigh area is much more form fitting. A straight leg would look much better. I'm just glad they aren't super baggy like my old pants. -----

    Waterproofing: I wore these pants right out of the box with no other treatment. After the first day on the slopes was really warm, the second day was quite the opposite. Started out raining, then mixed with sleet, and finally snow. True test of the pants since we were basically sitting in puddles on the (really slow) lift chairs and more puddles were collecting on my pants while riding. On the front of my pants, I could see the softshell material start to absorb some water, but only in very small, random spots where water was puddling up. My butt did end up being a little damp after the day was up. I don't believe the material soaked through, it was probably from sitting in puddles of rain/slush on the lift that made water leak through the zipper of the rear pocket. -----

    All in all, very impressed and I'd say these deserve 4.5 stars. I just took one star off because of my damp rear, but I'm guessing the only way around that is to not have any rear pockets at all.

    Runs Very, Very Small

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    I just received these in the mail, and I will be turning right around to return them.

    1st) These run super small. The length is right, but I have a 35" waist, and I had to inhale a little to snap the fly closed on the Large I got. That was after loosening the velcro belt adjustments to the point where they were hanging loose. I can usually suck in my teeny-tiny gut to squeeze into a Medium, and I had to do that with these in a Large. Aside from the discomfort, tucking anything into them would have been out of the question.

    Size Up!

    2nd) They are heavy. I wanted a hard(ish) uninsulated shell, but the softshell material used in these is very thick, and it weighs a lot. According to the listed weight of both, they're less than 2 ounces lighter than my insulated Patagonia Powderbowl pants.

    3rd) I can't speak to how waterproof they are, since I'm sending them straight back, but even if they're super-duper waterproof, I suspect the thick softshell exterior will hold water like a sponge. It may not penetrate to the interior, but it will make these already heavy pants a lot heavier.

    The 2nd star of the 2-star rating is because they do look nice, have a good arrangement of pockets, and I like the vents on both sides of the thigh.

    So, if you like a heavy, spongelike...yet still supposedly waterproof...pant that runs a full size too small, this is the pant for you.

    How warm is the fleece backing? Is it significantly warmer than non-insulated pants?
