Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 190 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I'm pretty persnickety about my ski pants. Too confining and I can't move. Too baggy and they're in my way. These pants are perfect! I'm 5'10" and 190 lbs. I have a 32" waist and 30" inseam so a medium short fits great except a bit roomy in the waist. I had my wife put a couple of darts in the waist and now they're perfect. If you're used to traditional ski pants, they are going to be a bit more fitted than you're used to. Perhaps a European fit would be a better representation. I wear them with a light to medium baselayer and I've never gotten cold in them. I really like the suspenders as it keeps them in one spot and they don't give me Plummer butt like a lot of ski pants do. I find they are my favorite ski pants for touring or even resort lapping. Last year I spent a week in BC heliskiing and they were great. Hands down the most comfortable ski pants I've ever had. BD durability is obvious here. I've put them through the ringer and they hardly have a scuff or stain. The only thing I would say be careful about is that they do run a bit narrow in the quad. If you have muscular thick quads, they may be a bit snug. They are very stretchy so I can live with that. Just be aware. Otherwise they are bomber and I love them so much I bought a second pair!

New Favorite!

I've been searching long and hard for a replacement for my '09 Dynastar Legend Pro Rider. I think I've found it. This ski skis great in powder, yet busts through crud and handles surprisingly well on hard pack. It gets a bit dicey on ice, but manages well especially since its not made for those conditions. I'm impressed by how light they are with Diamir Fritschi Pro Freeride bindings. Skinning is a breeze and my hip flexors are thanking me. If there really is such a thing as a one ski quiver, this ski comes as close to the mark as any I have seen. Great job BD!

I am 5'9" and 180 lbs with 30" inseam and 32" waist. I bought a Medium for backcountry skiing in Utah and I love them. The first day I tried them out at Snowbird and put them through the ringer on the rocks at The Cirque. They had not one scratch at the end of the day. They are a bit baggy but not overly so, but allow plenty of movement. I like the easy access pockets and detachable suspenders. I wear a light Smart Wool base layer under them and I was plenty comfortable in single digit weather. Yes they are pricey, but I think they'll go out of style before they wear out. In this sport, quality and dependability are everything and these hit the mark in my opinion. Hope this helps!!
