Hi, I'm looking for a solid synthetic layer for alpine / backcountry use including overnight ski touring. I'm looking at the nano air / nano storm .... I like the additional versatility of the weatherproof coating / pit zips etc of the storm but I will still need to pack my shell. How does the packed size of the nano air / nano storm compare as that will probably be the decider for me? Cheers

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

So I am 5'10" 189 lbs, 34" waist
I need to replace my current ski pants as my thighs have outgrown them and I don't have full movement when skinning.
I ordered a Large - they fit fairly pretty well leg length wise and had a bit of spare room in the waist.
The removable bib part is held up by adjustable hook/loop braces - the strange thing was that even with the braces adjusted as small as they would go (ie only 1/2" of hook/loop overlap, it still wasn't small enough for me.
I ended up ordering the Norrøna Lofoten pro bib to compare them to.
Once they were side by side it was a no-brainer, the Lofoten build quality is amazing, the shell fabric feels twice as burly and the cuff protection 4 times as burly
I will be returning the Spencer.
I've rated 4 stars based on the fact that fit is a subjective thing and I didn't get to use them in vain - however if you want a tough shell stretch the budget a bit more and check out Arcteryx or Norrøna
