Skyward II Pant
Back again and stretchier than ever, the Outdoor Research Skyward II Pant delivers the waterproof, breathable protection you need, whether you're touring through the backcountry or getting some late-season turns in at your closed resort. The three-layer shell has fully taped seams to wall out moisture, and the stretchy face fabric keeps your legs mobile when you're making kick turns up steep skin tracks. Outer thigh vents let you dump heat when you're working up a sweat on the bootpack, and the reinforced scuff guards prevent wear and tear from ski edge and sharp crampon alike. Thanks to an updated, trimmed-down aesthetic, this pant doesn't have to be restricted to ski touring, but can also grace your snowboard or snowshoes with equal function.

Love These Pants.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Height: 5'6"
- Weight: 160lbs
I've used these pants several times now and I love them. I bought them for touring but I also use them at the resort. They are relaxed fit and they provide great mobility. You almost forget that you are wearing Snowpants. The stretchy material is fully water proof but very breathable.
Overall these pants are comfortable while being high performance. I recommend them!!
Functionally sound, needs a belt
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
Gave these as a gift and she wrote an in depth review
"I am 5'4" 123 lbs and these pants in size small fit relaxed rather than fitted. The XS was just a little too fitted and size S is a little looser than I prefer, but I think they are supposed to fit more relaxed. They are a little long for me, but most pants are. The velcro waist cinch is a nice feature, BUT with the elastic in the back of the waistband, the pants do not stay put at the waist and I constantly have to yank them up. A belt or suspenders is a must. The waist would fit much better without the elastic. There are more pockets than I can use and I prefer to wear my beacon on my body as it pulls down on the pants when in the beacon pocket. The left thigh pocket is convenient for holding your phone. The waterproof/breathable and stretchy material is top quality and is comfortable for walking and skiing. The side zips are easy to use when I need to loose some heat on the uphill. overall, I would recommend these pants, but with a belt."
