Very Pleased Great Pant's

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

I use these for winter wear when it is below freezing around here . They are very high quality and warm . The cargo pocket can hold your keys plus wallet . I stuff my phone in my coat . The quality is apparent and they have side vents as the day warms up . They allow for good freedom of movement and have a great fit and look even on my old body . I would not hesitate to try these and believe they will last years as long as I keep them away from campfires and sharp objects . I actually bought the XL and am currently 6 2 198 but I like my clothes loose and layer . I can pull these over jeans with long johns and they feel a tad tight or just over long johns and they feel great . My current measured waist is 41 inches but sadly with years come swings and I have been anywhere from 40 to 45 during the past year . Thanksgiving to NewYears can be trying on fit .

Great Downhill Pant

Use these in the Pacific NW. Many cold days and many wet days this year. This pant has held up great. Keeps you dry, but not overheated on the powder/crud runs requiring some work. Very comfortable pant and it doesn't bind up. 6'2" 220lbs and the large fits great. Very happy with the purchase. Tough to beat.

Great Quality Buy - Would buy again

Best quality snowboarding pants I've owned yet. I'm 5'10" 185 lbs with a 34" waist. I ordered a Medium and it fits just perfectly (these pants go a little bit large due to the natural nature of snowboarding pants). Pockets and vents work wonderfully, and these pants are VERY waterproof. I've used them 15+ days/nights this season, and they haven't lost any DWR yet at all. Great quality.

The North Face Freedom Insulated Pant

I love my insulated pants. They are toasty skiing when it's 5 degrees and windy but not too hot when skiing in the 30's. I'm 6 feet tall with a 34 inch waist and 32-33 inseam. They fit me fine.

Worth every penny

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These pants are great! My last three days of skiing the temperature never got above -6F with a wind chill approaching -60F and these pants combined with a thermal layer underneath never let me down. Absolutely no chill what so ever. While the rest of my group went inside to warm up, I was able to stay out and get those few extra runs in. Very comfortable and durable. I'm 5'7" with a 33"waist and the medium short size is a perfect fit. If you are looking for a great pair of pants to keep you warm and dry all day long look no further, these are the pants for you.

Best pair of pants I own

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

if they didn't make so much noise when you walk i'd ware them around the house all day - The outer shell is choice! Just the right amount of insulation and zipper leg holes is pretty cool too!

Just right

I like the bagginess that these pants provide. There is ample room for layering if needed. Perfect amt of insulation for most days. Have worn in very heavy/wet snowfall and I stayed dry.

Awesome comfort, look, performance. Can't say enough about them.

Great Pants

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Perfectly insulated, skiing JH in December, just a thin baselayer under and I was more than warm. The vents offer that great breeze when needed, and the green is funky and fun.

rugged!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

i love these pants. i wore them over 80 days last season and they still feel new. the waterproofing is great, no moisture gets in. the insulation is just enough with a light baselayer underneath. i wear them in the spring as well and just open up the vents if i get warm.

Is the 60g insulated liner removable? A zip in or zip out type of liner?

Responded on

No the liner is not removable in these pants. There are large zip vents on the inside of both legs however if you get hot.

Simple and Functional

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

I got these as a gift for my boyfriend and he wore them for opening day at Brighton Ski resort. He Loved them. They kept him dry and warm and also the vents worked great for a little hike that we took for some fresh powder! He is 6 foot and 160 lbs and a 32 waist. He normally wears a medium but got the large because he likes to wear them lower than his true waist. Other than that they fit true to size and work for all types of weather.

The 100+ Day Pant

  • Gender: Male

Comfortable and with enough pockets to carry all sorts of gear without feeling loaded down, I love these pants. Unlike a lot of other pants, they?re durable enough around the cuff to handle sledding and hiking. Plus they have the lot lift system, which enables you to raise the pants cuff height so you?re not walking on them all the time. From November to May, these are my party pants.

GREAT ski pants

OK guys - this review is from a woman's point of view. I have these pants because the women's version is too low rise and not long enough for a tall (5'9") person. These are incredible ski pants and I have two pair (two seasons use out of one pair and haven't even worn the 2nd pair yet). I called TNF customer service for washing directions and have washed them at least four times with Granger's Performance Wash and sprayed with the XT Granger Waterproofing before hanging to air dry. They remain totally waterproof. I read somewhere that TNF rates these as totally waterproof through at least 18-20 washings and then the waterproofing lessens a bit without any additional treatment. I haven't had any wind issues and that's after sitting in a very cold snow/wind storm on a lift at Snowmass in February, 2012 - the kind of wind that has the lift chairs rocking. I typically wear them with a very lightweight merino base layer (Patagonia 2 or Ibex Woolies), although on a pretty cold day in Snowmass wore them with Patagonia merino 3 baselayer. Always toasty warm, totally dry, and I like the very light insulation - not hefty or bulky. Good, deep pocket design and amount of pockets. Great adjusting waist with velcro on the sides. I used the chimney venting while skiing in May at Blackcomb (the only time I've worn them without a base layer during spring skiing). Personally, I like the layer of insulation, rather than wearing unlined gear. I used the mens sizing chart and mine fit perfectly. Looking forward to wearing them in Portillo in August!

good value

Good pants for the price. I picked up a pair after looking at the forecast for a recent trip to Breck where it was single digits and wind every day. I'm normally a shell/layering person, but these pants performed well. I wore them with just a thin long-john/wicking layer underneath and they were warm into the negative wind chills. There are adjustable velcro waist bands so u don't need to wear a belt, though u could cause there are belt loops. The insulation is not bulky but it is warm. The velcro cargo pocket is good for quick easy access (trail map etc) and there are two zippered pockets for valuables. The HY Vent was waterproof enough through general front and side country skiing. Are they the warmest, no you can get marmot down pants which would be warmer, are they the most waterproof, no you could get arcteryx pro-shell pants, but for the price these are good pants. Recommended for the price.

Hello! Im 6´2" tall, 220lb, waist 36, usually wear jeans 36x34 (sometimes 36x32)........Should I buy the XL Reg or XL Long? Or Large?

Best Answer Responded on

Marcelo, you are right between sizes. If you don't mind them a little loose I would go with the XL regular and you get a 32 1/2" inseam that would help. If they do not fit BC has a great return policy.

I got different brands of ski pants but this is the second time I purchased North Face and the truth is, of all my ski pants, North Face is the perfect fit for me and the most comfortable too. I have 32" waistline and I'm Medium in all other brands (Small will be too tight) but for North Face, Samll fits me perfectly fine. One comfortable, durable material and looks great too.
