What is the fill weight and total weight of this jacket?
I wanted to like these. I will say they are soft and comfortable; the fit is excellent and they offer good dexterity. That said, I used these in a variety of climates and conditions, ski touring; inbound skiing; cold and dry; mild and wet; spring and mixed; and regretted it every single time. These are absolutely not waterproof in the PNW; they are just warm enough for the typical 31 degree weather we get outside of Seattle; anywhere else they offer no insulation. I brought these to Alaska and BC and my hands were warmer in fleece liner gloves.
I’m bummed because I wanted something that performs like these should.
These are a cute looking pant for sure, super soft and the right combo of functional and stylish. The material and fit are good, with a little room for improvement.
Fit: These run a little on the big side. I would have liked to have sized down. Length and rise were average and a good fit. The material in front was just a little too loose for a chic look.
Comfort: 10/10, these are super comfy. The material is very soft.
Look: Casual, sweats look. I was hoping the material would be more color fast. They are soft and look slightly faded in black, which is great for around the house, but not ideal for going out.
Overall, I think if these were slightly more fitted and a slightly different, color fast material, they would be perfect. These still could be if the goal is to have a lounge pant to wear around the house.
Ok, this might be a bit overkill, but does the company list how many lbs of flotation this provides? I am wondering how effective this would be on the off chance that my dog ends up in the water on rafting trips.
Any ladies ride these and want to share a review? Reviews are so helpful and I'm bummed that the ladies skis don't seem to have reviews. Any overview of how these ski would be appreciated!
Anyone know the weight?
Had anyone used this in a river/in white water?
I definitely thought these were half or 3/4 length. Would love something like that for skiing. Unfortunately, are full length. Nice pants, just not what I was looking for. Heads up to anyone purchasing.
Has anyone from the Pacific Northwest/Cascades used these? I am considering for days when it isn't raining/snowing out...but let's face it, nothing stays dry around here and I am hesitant to go with a glove that isn't completely waterproof. Any thoughts?
I have a pair of the insulated powder bowl pants, in regular fit, in my normal size and they fit plenty roomy through the hips, but just a tad tight in the waist. Has anyone tried on these and the powder bowl pants? Is the fit the same? I am not sure if I should size up or not...
So..has anyone else broken these? I have broken mine twice. The first time the sliding plate at the toe broke off when the binding released in a fall. The second time ( after they were fixed under warranty) the plastic toe piece cracked and came off after landing a fairly small drop. I'm not particularly heavy ( 135lbs) and am a fairly aggressive skier, but nothing crazy.....Am I just being too hard on my gear or are these bindings not super durable? I wonder if I just got a bad pair...I'd upgrade to Dukes, but I wanted to save on weight for touring and because I am not really heavy, I tend to keep my DIN on the low end ( 6.5) which often means going with the plastic binding. Any thoughts?
Do these stretch out a little or do they hold their shape?
I like to wear tights under my ski pants, but hate if they start getting loose after wearing all day...
These pants offer superior protection at an affordable price. They are super waterproof, light-weight and packable. Mine have taken tons of abuse with no signs of wear. The full side zip make them perfect for quickly throwing on over hiking pants without having to take off boots.
The only thing I don't like about these is the tight waist band. I wish these came with a thicker, flat waist band.
...because I can wear them with socks. Yes, I am from Seattle. I love these for white water...they protect the feet well and if I need to, I can loosen them and throw a pair of wool or neoprene socks on with them, tighten them back up and I am good to go.
These are hands down the most comfortable flip flops made. They are so cushy that they feel like slippers, only better. These are the best thing to put on after a long day climbing.
I can't stop buying the new color every year. These hold up so well that I still have all my old ones. They are super comfy!
Love that these are really comfortable. They require no break-in and look nice with a sun dress.
These are a step up from an ordinary flip flop; they'll stay on your feet and look cool too! I found them to be a little tighter than usual through the instep, but as with most chacos, if you get them wet, they can stretch a little and break in.
These are the longest lasting flip flops ever. They are worth every penny and then some. I have had mine 2 years now. I wear them white water rafting, on the beach, gardening, hiking, camping...you get the idea. These are indestructible. They still look brand new.
This is a great top for sun protection. I especially like the white color, as it doesn't get too hot and looks nice. This is, as other reviewers have noted, on the loose side. It might not be ideal for lots of time in the water, where a form fitting top would be best. However, for sun protection and a nice loose fit, this top is great.
