- Q & A
Decent Pant for the Price
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
To preface this, I have to say that I am a very novice skier. Nevertheless, I found these pants to be both comfortable and breathable. I have only taken them downhill skiing but the few times I've used them it was cold and raining/snowing and I was never uncomfortable. Unfortunately I have nothing to compare these pants against (other than the time I tried going skiing in jeans!), but I have been very happy with them overall.
Swix Universal Pants
I liked the way they performed for XC skiing. With a pair of Thermals it gave them a wide tempiture range. Fit was good ( Although many XC pants dont come with flys in the front - whats with that?)
Only issue and the reason I took them back was the snaps on the side didnt stay snaped, with very little pressure they would pop open. Easy fix for the MFG would be to use velcro.
Cold weather versatility
Just got these and took them out for a cold weather run (20 degrees and windy). Was looking for something with a bit more wind protection and these fit the bill. Great combination of wind protection and breathability. Would love to have a more secure adjustment at the waist - although I didn't have any specific problem.
Please describe the shell material? Are the seems taped? Waterproof?
What's the length of these puppies like?...
What's the length of these puppies like? For the shorter and fatter amongst us, are the XLs going to be super long?
I just bought 'em and I'm 6' 4" 210 lbs and they fit perfectly. They are not short.
Not a great inseam to waist ratio. As with nearly all pants, they're designed with height in mind, but unlike most pants, these can't be hemmed. Even the small has about a 34" inseam and a 28-30" waist.
