Description

A relaxed fit and a loose cut through the butt, thighs, knees, and cuffs.

The Freedom Pant's relaxed fit puts a modern spin on The North Face's more traditional style. In addition to a modern look, the Freedom's loose fit allows for a full range of motion, so you can throw more modern style on your airs while you're at it.

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. 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
  • Relaxed fit
  • Chimney venting system
  • Kickpatch and reinforced hem guards
  • Stretchvent boot gaiter with gripper elastic
  • Adjustable waist tabs

Warm and sturdy

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

I've used these with and without a base layer in single digit temperatures (F). They are quite warm. I'm a 33/34 waist normally Medium was good, though the cut is quite baggy as most everyone has said. Love the adjustable waist and the gaiters. They seem quite well constructed. I'm happy.

Great Ski Pants

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 5' 8"
    Weight: 145 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

Comfortable, durable and plenty of room for layering and flexibility. Definitely on the baggy side, but I kinda liked that. If you can find them <$100 snag them up. Great buy.

Runs Large

Great pants as far as materials and construction, but they do run really large.

Are these worn on their own or do they go over your pants?

Hey Scott O,

These pants can be worn with our without a base layer. It depends on your preference, whether you run hot or cold and what the weather is like on the day you'll be wearing them!

I agree with the size runs large

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

I ordered the product and discovered when I received it that it ran quite large even though I ordered a size small. I am 5'7'', 165 lbs and the legs were quite wide (hence the relaxed fit comment previously). I could have fit almost 2 of me in the pants. I would recommend if you plan to layer up underneath with sweatpants or thick baselayers. It seemed durable and well-constructed, but I returned it prior to testing it out on the slope.

Runs really large!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

Seriously, order down a size. I was reluctant because I ALWAYS wear medium. (I'm 32x32.) That's what I ordered, and they are way too big, both in the waist and length. Also very loose in the legs. "Relaxed fit" doesn't come close to describing it.
Otherwise they are a decent pair of pants for the price. Waterproofing worked well in a wet snow storm. Pockets are large, but awkwardly placed.

GREAT PANTS

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

Two ski weekends in New England and they fared real well at near zero temps with a pair of tights under. I am a size 34; the medium is just snug.

Very big

  • Gender: Female
  • Fit: Runs large

I have an older pair of North Face Men's Medium that I like because I can fit several layers underneath comfortably. These Medium pants run much larger. I returned before I wore them. I am going to try the women's medium maybe that will work. (I am a size 8-10 older woman). Pants seem sturdy and would be comfortable and not too bulky if they were true to size.

Larger looser fit

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

I'm 6'1 & 190 lbs. Love the color and the construction of the pant. Really quality and came as advertised. I like a looser fitting pant but this one is really baggy through the thigh and all the way down. Had to return as it was too big. Otherwise I would have kept it.

Small is not small enough!

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

I have a 30" waist and the smalls were literally falling off me. I ended up exchanging them for a women's small and they fit perfectly... (and I got to be a little more adventurous with the colors!)
My rating is based on the women's version, which is otherwise exactly the same. The waterproofing is excellent and the fleece lining is really comfortable. I would recommend these over the insulated version as they are more versatile, especially when you're exerting yourself. The vents do seem to shed some heat, but could be better positioned. If you have a waist that is less than 34", either shop around for an XS or consider getting a women's version.

sick shredding for everyone!

Found these pants at a North Face outlet store and couldn't let the gender deter me. Great snowboarding pants.

Hey, I wear a 36/34 jean, which fit a little loose in the hips and are slightly long. Would you recommend L/Reg for me?

Responded on

I'm 6'1" 178 lbs and wear 32x32 or 33/32 dress pants and my jeans are usually 32x32 or 32x34. I own North face Freedom pants in Medium and they are perfect. I think the Large should be right for you. Even when looking at the size chart under the size selection drop down above indicates Large.

And don't forget Backcountry's easy return/exchange policy if you guess wrong. Hope that helps.

Very nice ski pants

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

I just received these ski pants so haven't used them yet. My first impressions are that they are really nice quality and for the price on Backcountry.com, they are a bargain. They are made from a strong fabric that is a little stiff but that may soften up with use.

Fit wise, these pants are a generous fit but probably true to size. I'm 6'4'' and weigh about 210lbs. I take a 38x33 pant so I'm at the small end of the XL sizing according to the size chart. I went with the XL Reg to be safe. The length is perfect but they are a bit loose in the waist (which I can adjust with the velcro tabs) and a little baggy in the bottom and thighs. I'd say the Large size might be a better fit for me considering the generous sizing in these pants.

Great pair of snow pants

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

Bought these pants before a trip to UT. Waist size is 32 and the mediums fit perfect. With only a base layer on I was perfectly warm in upper 30's all day long.

I wear a 33x30 pant, what size would you...

I wear a 33x30 pant, what size would you recommend for these?

Thanks!

Responded on

I'm 6' tall 178lbs, my jean size is 32x34 and my dress pants are either 32x32 or 33x32. I own a medium Freedom pant and it's perfect, if anything maybe a little short. So medium should be perfect with a little extra length.

Responded on

My jeans are 34x30, and the Medium - Short fit perfect. Unfortunately I don't see the short size here on backcountry at the moment. Regular length would probably be rather baggy when you're buckled in to your board/skis, especially with these being a more relaxed fit.

How waterproof / breathable are these? Can anyone compare them to another brand's pants?

Responded on

I have had my gray freedom pants for several years now. I don't use them all the time but for the price they have stood the test of time very well.

There are other pants that have better waterproofing but always more money. You have to compare the waterproofing rating for any pants that you get but I can honestly say for the money these are top notch. Lightly insulated also which I love and then I have non insulated pants for the warm days. Breathability is hard for me to measure , especially being insulated. But they do have side or inseam zipper vents from what I remember.

I do have very expensive shell pants that I paid a hefty price for that I haven't been that impressed with. Definitely not worth at least double versus the freedom pant.

Size recommendation for the Northface Freedom Pant?

I'm 6'1" 178 lbs, my dress pants are 32-33waist and lengths are usually 32 but my jeans are all 34 long. I've always bought the medium in the freedom pant and worked perfectly. Hope that helps you.

Great

The product came in excellent condition quickly. The pants were warm and effective while skiing in 20 degree weather. I would definitely recommend at the price.
