I absolutely love! I was warm and dry all day long and that is incredibly rare for the northeast in the spring! Great fit and comfort. Highly recommend!

- I've put it through the wringer
I love these!! but they run BIG! I had to size down to the XS, but other than that these are perfect and would recommend them to all. GET THESE PANTS!

It's called freeride.
These pants are rad. In my opinion they fit like most other freeride pants I've seen, and the waist is totally adjustable. I did size down from other brands. This is my second pair of Norrona pants, and they are just as bomb-proof as my old ones. These are probably the ski pants you'll see on ebay in 30 yrs and they will still be functioning like new. The raspberry color is bright and fun and the material is textured, almost like a subtle houndstooth. The pants seem to stay waterproof no matter what; I can leave my cell phone in my pocket and it stays dry all day. And it's easy to layer for any temperature. Pretty much the best performing ski pants I've ever had.

Nice pants, but huge!!!
I should have read the reviews before ordering. I'm 5'5" 125lbs, ordered a small and yes, they were huge!!! I even like to wear my pants baggy and a little long. If you're 5'9" and 160lbs order the small, they will fit. Other than that, they're a great pant, nice sturdy material, bomber cuff/ski guard, waterproof zippers, vents could be a little bigger, but they're located on the exterior thigh which is nice for hiking. Rasberry Rose w/ neon green zips is a cool color too!

I am 5'5" and 111lbs and ordered the XS...same story...HUGE! The couple of soft-shell pants I have from them are quite snug in an XS! Same when it comes to the jackets. I like Norrona but the sizing is a bit hit or miss. Sometimes snug; sometimes HUGE like this one. The Mountain Hardware Botka pant fits me pretty well in an XS. It seems to be the smallest of all the performance shell pants I have ordered and I will probably go with it for this winter.

Also tried Patagonia's offerings for this year...EVEN HUGER when it comes to the pants.

Amazing ski pant
The rose color is amazing, the fit fantastic. I will live in these pants this winter. I wear a size 8 in pants, and the medium is perfect. It has lots of adjustments on the waist. I ordered the matching jacket, and have not gotten it yet, but it looks like the jacket zips onto the powder skirt so no snow or wind can go up the back. Very excited about this brand. I ordered a large jacket, to fit avvi gear under, but am afraid it might be too big...

Super cool but BIG
I wish I could have kept these but they run HUGE. I am 5'5" and about 125 and I was swimming in a small. I returned them but I wish they would have fit because I have only heard great stuff about Norrona products.

What does the butt look like? Any...
What does the butt look like? Any pockets?

You might have to contact Norrona directly, or a retailer who is kind enough to pull one from the shop to check for you. The image of the rear does not exist online, sorry.

The specs in regard to pockets are accurate here. (I ordered them.) Be forewarned... they are HUGE...even in XS. No butt pockets not that one expect them on a garment designed for this use ;)
