I love these knickers. I ski about 45 days a season. I wear these every time. They fit true to size and are a good fit meaning they work for my curves and are not baggy or loose where they shouldn't be. Overall the pants are light but pack solid warmth under my outer shell pants. I typically wear a base layer, these knickers, and then my thin outer shell pants. I ski at 10,000' + . I tuck at least a base layer and a medium layer into these, and they fit comfortably. Since I got these my lower body has not felt cold once. I feel flexible on the mountain and so far they quality is solid and holding up. I also find these to be cozy enough to lounge around in for awhile apres ski. Recommended.

My wife skis for 4-5 days a week for work and fun, and I picked these up for her after a few brutal cold snaps in the Wasatch. She says they're worth it and a half. On any (*ahem*) "normal" day above 15º F she wears yoga tights under Arc'teryx Sentinel shell pants. If it's between 0-15º F but she'll be moving/working hard, she swaps the yoga tights for fleece tights. However, if it's in the single-digits or below 0º F and she's not generating much heat aerobically, the Axina Knickers have been a game changer for staying comfortable... or just staying outside, period. At 60 grams of insulation, they're basically the equivalent of turning an Atom LT jacket into pants, but a touch heavier-feeling. She says she tends to run warm while skiing, so she saves them for the coldest days, but that if your bottom half runs cold or you're not jazzed on uninsulated shell pants in the resort, they'd likely be more of a constant companion. She has a size M in both the Axinas and the Sentinels, and says the wide, low-profile waistband makes it easy to layer the knickers underneath.
