One pant—four seasons.
The Norrøna Women’s Falketind Gore-Tex Pro Shell Pant provides bomber protection for mountaineers, trekkers, and backcountry skiers, with a three-layer Gore-Tex membrane that keeps moisture at bay without causing condensation to build up. It's a fairly minimalist pant, with the focus squarely on details like the 3/4-length side zips, custom-fit waist adjustment, and super-functional pockets, which means it's useful across four seasons and weighs less than a pound, making it as versatile and durable a pant as you're likely to find.

Not for Skiers
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: med and large
I bought these for alpine touring. I ordered both a medium and a large - I'm 145 lbs and 5'4", athletic build. The mediums would not even go over my thighs. The large fit ok on the top half but the legs were way too long for any activity at my height. The bottom of the pants would not fit over the top of my ski boot - and even if it did fit there was no gaiter to keep any snow out which is kind of essential at least in the backcountry. These might work for hiking or climbing but definitely NOT for skiing.
cool design, good fit but rather short inseam (i´d guess 31-32) - i´m 5'11 and usually wear a size 10 - got the large as i intend to use it as a rain/stormshell over hiking/ski touring pants, very light & packs down small
Finally a well designed pant for women!!
I have searched for the perfect gore-tex pant for ice climbing. I am 5'8",and I wear a size 8 but I have a woman's figure...meaning there is a difference between my waist and my hips! I also have some pretty strong legs. These anatomical features of mine make it difficult to find a pant that fits in the waist and hips, while allowing me to get my feet up really high...I also want a pant that looks great, is not too heavy, well made, etc. FOUND IT! These pants are solid. Way better than all of the Arcteryx that I own. They have an adjustable waistband and belt loops, shock cord loops and boot hook. Smallish crampon protection patch, but more importantly they are slightly tapered down at the bottom so you don't have all that excess fabric flapping around waiting to trip you. Great length. I ordered the medium and the large. I tried them both on a zillion times with different weight long underwear and finally went with the large. I could have easily gone with the medium if I was just going to wear them for ski touring or general mountaineering. But for ice climbing with my warmest long underwear, I felt I needed the extra room so I could get my knees up as high as possible with no restrictions. They will be a bit baggy around the hips and butt, but they still look better and are made better and function better than anything else I own at this point.
