JPwrote a review of The North Face Powderflo Pant - Men's on January 23, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
I got these in a Large/Long and the fit feels real good. I'm 6'4 with a 36" inseam and they are as long as I need them to be.
However, the pockets are not great. The front top pockets are very shallow and the material is soft cotton, which I think will stick to my hands when I they're moist. The front thigh pockets are poorly positioned... I would much rather have them on the side. I don't think I'll like the feeling of my Tram Bar hitting the front of my thigh while I'm skiing.
There are no back pockets, which to me is a huge oversight. I always use my back pockets when I'm hanging out apres ski. I also noticed that the butt is a lot colder than my old pants and I think it's because my old pants have big pockets in the back. I will remedy this by having a tailor install back pockets.
The area on the bottom of each leg, where your skis and boots hit, is not super rugged. I'll have to have some rugged pieces of material sewed on there too.
I'm keeping them for the fit, but I'll end up paying a tailor about $100 to make them better.
