sundaymtnwrote a review of Columbia Bohemian Beauty Pant - Girls' on November 1, 2010
These were cool enough for my tough to please 8 year old. The material is the kid tough columbia stuff I now specifically seek out, which practically has a texture to it. I don't know what they call it but you can tell just by grabbing the sleeve or pant which one it is.
My daughter said "no bibs" so fit was important. These have the side cinch pull straps on the waist but I'll probably invest in a good nylon belt too just because that'll be more comfortable for her. The other things *I* was looking for were scuff guards at the ankles and a couple good pockets, both check out fine. No snow yet but as far as I'm concerned this is just a different style and the core fabric is what I was looking to find again.
