Wendy S.wrote a review of Norrona Roldal Gore-Tex Insulated Pant - Women's on January 7, 2014
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
I get cold easily. After experiencing hypothermia last year, I resolved to find a pair of the warmest, driest ski pants available. The Norrona Roldal pant fits the bill with style! I own a pair of Norrona Narvik shell pants that I used for ski instructing and love their fit, style, and performance, so decided to try the Roldal insulated pant. In single digit temperatures with biting winds, I was comfortable with just a thin baselayer beneath. Skiing during a day of sleet and freezing rain, I was toasty and dry. The waist is lined with soft material and has great adjustability with well-placed, large velcro tabs. Zippers are sturdy and thigh vents are ample. Fit of my normal size L was a little snugger than I'm used to at the hips so I went with an XL and the fit looks identical to what's shown on the model on the product listing picture. Plenty of room to move in and add more layers if needed, but still looks stylish. The red color is more of an bright orangey-red, not a scarlet red, which suited me fine, since I paired them with a green Norrona jacket and was afraid of looking like a Christmas tree. Best-made ski pants out there, hands down. Afraid of spending the money on these? Once you've worn them, you'll be SO glad you did!
