These are comfortable and durable, though it takes the proper under layers to insulate the pants.

That being said, they are super dry and Gore Tex delivers on keeping the elements out! They have a cool outter layer near the base of the pants meant to keep a person from slicing the pants to shit when skiing aggressively, a feature my fiance loves.

They fit well and are stylish, just be informed they are not insulated so under garments should be layered according to degree of exposure and locale. She is a size 4 normally and the pants are slightly large on her, so the awkward sizing thing is true to some degree, just take your time and make sure you get the right fit. Backcountry.com is great about working with people to make sure this happens quickly despite online ordering process, etc.

The one pictured is a different model but in the same line of jackets, and I bought in on backcountry.com and it's the nicest coat I've ever owned. Super comfortable and could stop any storm you threw at it. It works well for skiing and winter climbing, an all around work horse with comfort and amazing material. Gore tex is simply the best IMO.

Take it from a serious skier and a rather accomplished one, it's well worth the extra coin to invest in a jacket of this caliber on backcountry.com.

Talk to a gear rep and they'll say the same thing folks. Happy winter!

These are great pants and well worth the extra coin in our opinion. They handle Northeastern backcountry with no problem... Couldn't be happier and the orange color looks rad!

We ski hard out here and they handle everything I abuse them with... Really stoked and highly recommend these to anyone looking for a serious mountaineering, alpine ski pant. And comfortable to boot!

Thanks all!
