- True to size
- Size Bought
- 6` 2"
- 210 lbs
I am 6'2, 210 lb. Sizing is tricky, large is typically too restrictive in shoulders and thighs, XL is typically to baggy everywhere else. The sizing for these is slightly larger than most brands, and for me a Large fits perfectly. It has great movement, I can easily layer under it, but it is a nice slim fit. The perfect amount of baggy. As for the fit and finish, it is also excellent. The material is not too heavy, but feels robust. The stretch is noticeable, and as assuming its has the 20k/20k rating written on it, that is all you ever need. The beacon pocket is awesome as well. The side vents are well positioned.

great touring pant
I like to ski with bibs inbounds, but I run super hot and need something cooler when touring. These are great, DWR is fantastic, they bead up great . I really like the beacon pocket which makes it super easy to access for beacon checks and drills. Only complaint is that they don't have back pockets. Inseam does run a bit long on these, but not a huge deal for me.

High Quality but Inseam Was a Bit Long
- I returned this product before using it
- Runs large

I was stoked to test these pants out and really wanted them to work, but the inseam was just a bit long. I am 6'1'' 210 and picked up the XL. The fit worked everywhere except the length.

Can't wait to put these to the test
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I just got these and will update later this season: I wanted to get a pair of ski pants for inbounds and when I go in the back country. My body runs warm, so these will be perfect to layer under when I'm going to be sitting on the chair lifts, on those warmer days and when on the skin track, I these will be perfect with a baselayer. The two thight pockets are super deep, measuring ten inches deep from the lowest part of the zipper. The padded internal PIEPS pocket built inside the right thigh pocket will be a great alternative location for my beacon. When i'm inbound, I could definitely see putting my iphone, GoPro or Point and shoot camera in it. on top of all that, it is backed by BD's amazing warranty, I'll be skiing in these for a loooooong time.
