Get It Before Labor Day Weekend—Order With Free 2-Day*by 5pm MT 9/2/15

Description

Enjoy the freedom of spending a full day on the mountain in moisture-free warmth.

The North Face designed the Freedom Insulated Pant with a relaxed fit that's right at home from the backcountry to the terrain park, and plenty of pocket space to take care of your odds and ends while you shred. A waterproof breathable shell provides storm protection while a layer of synthetic insulation keeps all your heat from escaping while you ride.

In order to hold off storms and keep water from getting to your skin, the Freedom pant starts with a tough nylon shell and a waterproof breathable HyVent 2L laminate. Then The North Face adds its 60g Heatseeker synthetic insulation to lock in warmth on sub-zero days. The pant's Chimney Vent cooling system, which funnels air from the StretchVent gaiters to the inner thigh vents, keeps things comfortable once the sun comes out to heat things up. Not to be outdone in the storage space department, the Freedom pant comes with two hand pockets and a large cargo pocket on the right thigh. To finish things off, The North Face hooked the pant up with reinforced kickpatches and edge guards to protect the pant from sharp ski edges and muddy parking lots.

  • HyVent 2L waterproof breathable laminate
  • Durable nylon oxford main body fabric
  • 60g Heatseeker synthetic insulation
  • Relaxed fit
  • Chimney venting system
  • Kickpatch and reinforced hem guards
  • Stretchvent boot gaiter with gripper elastic

Great resort pant

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 0"
    Weight: 180 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large tall

I ended up buying these because they were the only insulated pants that would fit my long legs (large tall). I love the way they fit, not athletic, but not baggey by any means. The waist adjustment works great, set it once and it stays. While the fabric is not on the level with Gore-Tex, I have yet to get wet. I've never gotten cold, but with any insulated pants, 30-40F spring skiing gets way to warm even with the vents open. I've been through tons of trees, and have yet to get any tears or ski edge cut. I would recommend if you resort ski and can only afford o e pair of pants.

Sooooooooo Baggy!!

I've had great NF pants for years. These were big enough to fit two of me. That's fine and all for some, just not for me. I like my pants to fit normal. Returned.

solid ski pant

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These Freedom insulated pants are excellent. I've gone skiing twice in below zero temps with just a light base layer (Patagonia) in addition to these pants and I've stayed warm. The material is durable and the Monument Grey color is nice; looks exactly the same in the picture. I am 5' 10'' and 160lbs (32/31 inch waist) and I ordered the Medium in regular length. I had a little extra room in the waist but the waist tabs and a belt took care of that. I could still get by without the belt. Personal preference. The length is perfect for me. Long enough to pull off the "relaxed fit" look -- even while sitting down -- but not too long where they get caught in my bindings. Also not too baggy, but definitely more baggy than they are slim. Very comfortable fit all around IMO. Very happy with my purchase -- I love TNF products -- and the shopping experience with Backcountry was enjoyable. I will definitely shop here again!

Not so great.

I ordered the insulated pant, and Backcountry sent the uninsulated pant instead. I sent them back, which was ok because I didn't really like them anyway. The fit was too baggy and the material was quite stiff and noisy. I ordered the Jeppeson instead, which I like much better.

Christmas present win

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

Got these for my boyfriend, who constantly goes through pants every ski season. Here's what he has to say:
These pants hold up really well in the backcountry. They are warm when the temps get in the negative to low digits and the air vents allow just enough air to pass through that you can cool yourself down when it gets hot. All in all I am very pleased with these pants.

0-2 from T.N.F. (Manufacturer Warranty)

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

The first pair were WAY too big so I ordered another pair. The second size came and I was thrilled, but didn't get the chance to use them immediately because there was no snow on the ground, as of yet. Now the stormy weather has moved in with a fierceness and this is what happened.

I only tried on the pants once before adorning them a second time to drive to the gym and work out during a storm. While putting my cell phone in the right hand pocket, I noticed the zipper wasn't attached correctly to the pants. The right side zipper for the pocket had unattached itself, making the pockets useless.

SO I SENT THEM BACK TO EXCHANGE FOR A THIRD PAIR...

The third pair came today, AND AGAIN THE SAME THING HAPPENED!!! The zipper on the right side is frayed and pulled apart from the pockets, a definite manufacture issue. Though this isn't the fault of B.C. and is the fault of T.N.F., I don't recommend this batch of winter pants to ANYONE.

In my opinion TNF is 0-2 on these pants. The same tare has occurred twice and considering I didn't use them for more than a couple minutes, this is a bummer deal! There's no doubt these would rip under pressure like skiing or snowboarding, as I was simply using them to stay warm on my frigid commute to the gym. Not cool TNF-MAJOR MANUFACTURING DEFECT!!!

I wish I had a picture for everyone, but alas, the third pair is being returned post haste.

Responded on

This is a bummer because I know if it weren't for the manufacture issue with the right pocket, these would perform well. They feature material I've come to trust in cold weather ascents and I'm assuming its only this BATCH that is faulty. I'll post something if I get another pair from a different batch of pants. Thank you!

Great with all the basic features

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

ME: 5'11" 185 34" waist. I tried both large and medium - both worked. Medium is maxed out on waist. Large worked when the velcro tabs were pulled tight. I have so many baggy pants from years past that I kept the more modern fitting medium as the large was a bit more loose. In either size, not too tight, not too baggy.

leg vents, zippered pockets, thigh pocket, velcro in addition to the button waist closure ...all the basic features covered. Price seems reasonable.

Good Pants

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I wore these pants for the first time this last weekend. They were very comfortable, fit well, and seem to be durable. It was -12C (10F) and I had no issues with my legs getting cold, or with snow getting inside of them. I like my snow pants to be a little baggy, which they do.

Good Pants, Too Baggy

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

I'm 6'0" and 165 lbs and pretty athletic (plenty of running and soccer). Ordered a medium. The waist was a bit loose (I usually wear jeans that are 32 or 33 inch waist for a more comfortable fit), but fine with the built-in adjustment. The problem was the room in the legs--way too baggy (and a bit longer than I'd prefer), maybe to the point of giving me enough room to comfortably wear my current ski pants inside of these. I felt like a 4 yr old wearing my dad's shoes.

The waist on a medium is 32-34 and large is 35-37 but what are the leg lengths for medium and large. I am 6'3"?

Thanks

I know these pants have an adjustable waist. What are the maximum waist measurements for sizes small and medium?
Thanks

Great fit, and looks.

Great fit I have come expect from North Face. Love the thigh pocket. Look forward to getting it our on the slope this season.

Great ski / snow pants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These are excellent ski/snow pants - warm enough for all but the bitterest of cold days, and roomy enough to layer underneath them if you feel the need to. I think they're plenty warm by themselves until you get into the single digits. I wore them over fleece leggings in -15F skiing and was plenty warm on my legs.

I've been in all sorts of conditions, and they haven't let wind or water through, so I wouldn't be concerned with TNF's fabric selection. They're also very, very comfortable.

The initially odd-seeming thigh pocket is actually awesome, and keeps my wallet accessible for lodge beers in between runs. The front pockets are nice as well. Boot gaiters are awesome - they keep the wet out and the warmth in. There's also a built-in belt with velcro that does a nice job, and a zippered fly for the fellas.

I've toured with them as well, and the thigh zipper vents are nice for the way up. They're not an ultralight or anything, and probably a bit bulky for a harness.

For the cost it's a no-brainer. Unless you're concerned with weight or a climbing harness (these probably aren't for Mt Rainier), there's no need to spend more. I love them.

Happy with my purchase

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Worn them on 4 or 5 trips now and I'm very happy. Skied in 10 degrees and stayed warm, skied in 40 degrees and stayed cool thanks to the vents. Thought the cargo pocket would be in a weird spot on the top of the leg but I've shoved a bunch of stuff in it and it didn't feel awkward while skiing. Only complaint is that for the proper waist size I had to get an XL and they are a little long in the leg, but no big deal since I like the baggy fit anyway.

Responded on

How tall are you? Curious since you say the XL is a little long, but nice fit on the waist? Im 6'2" but skinny 34" waist, wasnt sure if I should go large or XL. I like the baggy fit but not too baggy

Great Insulated Pant!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been skiing in these pants a few times now and they've worked great! They do keep you warm (worn them on days in the teens) and the thigh vents are great for dumping excess heat on those warmer days. Most importantly they keep you dry, which is a necessity for skiing in the Mid-Atlantic area!

The fit of the pant is slightly baggy, but not too much so - I'd call it tastefully comphy - but that could also be do in part to my inseam size. Regular inseam on the Small size pant ( which I bought) runs about 31" in length. I have 30" inseam so they're a little long. Waist of the pant fits fine with the elastic draws - I have a 29" waist.

Overall I'm very satisfied with this pant!

Nice snow pants

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

I bought these as part of my return to the ski slopes after several years' absense. They fit well, are warmly insulated (but not too much), and allow full range of motion. The various pockets are nice, and seem well-laid out, but I use the pocket in my jacket instead.

Good for snowshoeing too

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I have no doubt these pants are excellent for most winter sports... and I just wanted to add that they served me well during the few snowshoeing hikes I've done this winter thus far. They are insulated enough to keep me warm and dry... and didn't limit mobility. When things got a little warm during an outing, I was glad for the inner thigh vents. The gaiters, did seem kind of loose at first, but they were effective in keeping snow out. There are no back pockets, but i didn't find them lacking in storage space. These are not super tight pants, they are more relaxed... but not to the point where I felt I was swimming in them. Though there are built in adjustable waist tabs, I added a belt for better fit... my preference.

The North Face has a winner here.

Warm, comfortable, and very practical. Survived 6 days of skiing so far with no issues.
