These were great pants. Unfortunately, my giant quads decided to bust out of this guys after a decent fall and split right along the seam in the seat. But I'm pretty sure that if I could have sized-up (maxed out) they would have had a long life on the slopes.
Great pants! Fit is awesome Stoic 3D fit and materials are top notch... insulation has kept me warm... deep purple color goes surprisingly well with a lot of other items... definitely worth the $...
finally! pants that make you look feminine :)
i've been searching high and low online for a more "feminine-cut style" pair of ski/snowboard pants. the stoic bombshell is definitely the bomb! i'm 5' 0", 97 lbs., and the XS fits me like my favorite pair of jeans. i can add a thin layer underneath and still move around without worrying about ripping them in the crotch/butt area. however, if you want to layer with something thicker, i'd go a size up. i wish the purple one was still available...i'd snatch those up as well!
Comfort, warmth, and style.
I've been searching for a pair of slim ski pants (that are not softshell) for years and these are definitely the best pair I've found. Wore them in temperatures as low as 5 degress and I was never cold. Also, I'm only 5'6" and I never found ski pants that were quite long enough but these are perfect, and they were size XS. They zip open open at the bottom which give them a nice flared look. I love the fabric and comfort, would definitely recommend.
I ordered these for Christmas and glad I read the reviews first! My biggest concern is fit. They do run small; as I am 5'2'' and 112 lbs, I usually wear XS or S, but sooo glad I got the Medium! The waist adjusts and I got a perfect fit without bulk at the waistline! They are easy to move around in. The length is fine for snow boots, but if you are tall, you may want to go up a size more? I have an average to small bum, so you may want to size it up if you are blessed in that area (waist adjustable, remember). I have only worn these in the snow going sledding with the kids so far and they are toasty warm! I wear a thin liner under them, but you don't have to. Wind and snow are no problem. They keep me dry and repel water for short drying time! Love the purple color! I expect these to last me a decade or more!
These are great pants! The fit is trendy and they look great. We live in the Chicago area and I got these pants to take my kids sledding. They keep me warm and dry and look good.
Good pant - potential for weird fit.
I got these for my wife. she's 5'9" 140 and I got her the Large thinking it would give her plenty of room to spare. Not so. It was very form fitting. She wanted a little more room so we exchanged for an XL but the XL seemed like a three size increase from Large and made her look really weird (aka plump... she said it, not me). We went back to the Large and will try those out. They have been out for one day and they did very well in the warmth and waterproofing dept while being very light.
I love them! Slim fitting, but still able to move around. I feel the warmth as soon as they are put on. Haven't tried them on the slope yet, but can't wait!

if you want to layer order a size up
I'm usually a solid medium but these pants were way to snug with only one fleece layer underneath. Nice boot cut fit though. I exchanged for a large.
Comfortable and durable
I wore these pants for the first time on a cold, windy ski tour last week. I have to say, I was surprised by how comfortable and practical they are. The styling is great too--cute trouser fit, bold new-school coloring. I dig it. And when I first felt the fabric, it was so lightweight that I wondered if the pants would stand up to abuse or if they'd simply tear at their first run-in with a tree branch. Turns out, the fabric is plenty burly, and the thick reinforcement patches around the instep and cuffs protects it from your ski edges. Since the pant is so light (clearly a boon for hiking/touring/breathability), you'll want to layer extra-warm long johns underneath if it's a really cold day like I was out in. I think it works out well; the pant will be plenty light and breathable on spring tours, and then I can wear light long johns or capri-length ones underneath. Overall, great pant, cute fit... maybe size up because it ran a little small. (I usually wear a size S or XS, and the medium in this pant was a tad big, but only a little too big.)
Don't miss out
First of all, I got the purple pants and love the color, they are a deep purple that looks really nice. I wore these out hiking in 0 degree weather with just underwear under them and stayed very warm, i even had to zip the vents open! The only gripe i have with them is the size, i usually wear a small or medium, i'm 5'3" 130, I tried mediums which were really tight in the waist and I had to wear them really high, they were also tight in the butt but good in length and around the legs. I ended up going with the larges and am very happy I did, I can wear them a bit lower and more comfortably and they don't look huge on me, the main difference in the mediums and larges was just a little extra room in the waist and hips.
Great looking pants
I loved how these pants looked on me - not bulky like most ski pants do. The only problem was that when it was too cold - layering wasn't very comfortable, and when it warmed up for spring skiing, the inner fabric felt rather plastic and was sticking to skin. Maybe I just needed a size larger, but then again - I liked the look of this size (I got M, which fitted perfectly - I'm 5'6" with 38" hips, but if you want to layer - get size larger)
Heading to The Canyons
Nice ski pants!
I picked these up as I had the old up-to-your-belly-button granny ski pants and they were loosing their waterproofing. Also, they were freezing!
I am pretty happy with them. They're a good ski pant and they're warmer than what I'm used to. The only caveat is that you do need some beefy thermals underneath (I picked up the Patagonia level 4 - I think -thermals) and I stay really warm. I tried them with my other thermals and was freezing.
As for sizing, order a size up! I'm a 131 lb female, 5'3" and I got a medium (I'm normally a size 4 or 6 in jeans) and they're a little snug but fit comfortably. I'm happy I listened to other reviews on Stoic products about the sizing. The pants have a lot of pockets that I don't use but they're nice to have. They're also form fitting, so you actually look like a girl instead of the marshmallow man.
I'm an advanced skier, I ski off piste, and I'm happy with how flexible they move. Also the thigh vents are really nice. Overall a great pant and I recommend them!
I have an athletic build (meaning I have a butt, hips, and thighs) and my body fits best in either a straight leg pant or a boot cut pant. Every detail of these pants if fantastic and makes for an incredible fit for a woman who doesn't have a body shaped like a 12-year-old boy's. The pockets on the backside add shape to the rear end and though these pants are well-insulated, there's no extra bulk there. I'm a size 8/10 on the bottom and 5'6" and ordered the Large. They were a perfect fit and the purple color is very true to life in the web photos. I've already had two pairs of ski pants professionally tailored to fit my body and this pair was wear-ready. Thank you, Stoic!
good pants, but not the best
i wear size 0 express jeans (0 jeans are fitted for me, size 2 is slightly baggy), i wear size 2 petit in ann taylor slacks. i am 5'2.5", ~120lbs.
i ordered the small.
i ordered these and The North Face Freedom Insulated Boot-Cut Pant - Women's with the intent to return one. i really love how silky the inside of these pants are (although, in cold weather, i will be wearing a base layer so it doesn't matter as much); i think the style is great and looks like regular pants (not too bulky); the brown with pink accents is really cute. i also like the idea of inner-thigh venting.
the pants are a little tight around the knee area, so not as much room as i would like if i'm layering up. the pockets are not very functional (hard to get into b/c one side of the flap is attached to the pant, and they are tight pockets).
this part is difficult to describe without actually seeing it, but if you look at the 10th picture above, you'll see that the gaiter can be opened\closed (rip-and-stick and buttons close it), which is fine. HOWEVER there's a little opening on the top part of the gaiter (maybe 1"x1") that cannot be closed\covered, which i do not like.
i can't speak as to performance b/c i will be returning these and keeping the north face pants.
great pants but run small
I'm 5'4", 120 lbs and usually wear size 4-6; should be a small according to the size chart. The small was way too tight so I tried medium and they were perfect. The waist has plenty of adjustment to cinch in. Fit is stylish but not baggy, just enough insulation without being too puffy. Pockets are cute but a bit tough to get into, more for style than function. I liked these so much in purple that I also bought the brown. Both colors are really nice and go well with almost any color jacket. Would have given them 5 stars if they were true to size. Order a size larger than you normally wear.
Do you think the legs of these pants would...
Do you think the legs of these pants would be roomy/flexible enough for a tele skier? I find some pants just won't accommodate free-heelers.
Girlfriend rockin' in these pants
I got my girlfriend these pants and she loves them. The purple is a nice deep purple that surprisingly goes with a lot of her jackets. She is about 5'8 and 130 pounds and has a medium. They fit her nicely and are a perfect length (even if you are a little shorter, I would go with a medium- as she says they fit more snug then mediums in other brands). She says they keep her warm on cold days, more so then her other ski pants. She has recieved many compliments on the style and the purple color. Would recommend!
