OMG...best ski pants ever
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Height: 5'5"
- Weight: 118lbs
I was looking for a good shell pant that would fit my long legs, short waisted, straight figure, no butt/hip body. This was a perfect fit with the adjustable waist. Had it on almost tightest waist setting with lots of room for my tummy to grow and adjust the waist :). Fit my slim hips/butt nicely. I got a small (I'm 5'5, 114ish with 30" inseam). I ski hot and these worked great with light base layer in 30ish Degrees with 30-50 mile gusts, and in blizzard like conditions. Didn't feel the cold or wind. Also, used them for snowshoeing in 5 feet of snow (when feel down :)) and again, didn't feel the cold, dampness or snow (under it got under my jacket gaiter...LOL). These would work even if you're a bit curvy because there was extra material in the butt on mine. Pockets are perfect and love the mess vents.
Yes, these are expensive, but worth every pennny as they'll be kicking for decades. Beside, their cute as all get out :)
Oh, did try out the Arcteryx Senntiel pants, but the waist was too small and didn't like the vents being open and not messed.
