Every time I go skiing, this is the pant, no exceptions. Whether it's skiing resort or in the backcountry, it's incredibly versatile, comfortable, and flattering. The fit is loose but not too baggy (definitely size up though!), good venting in the thigh, just enough pockets, lightweight, and keeps you dry. Combine it with the matching Charge jacket and it's the only outfit you'll ever need!

Since winter seems to be taking its time and I haven't had a chance to take them out I wanted to at least write a review on the sizing/fit... I had originally ordered an XS but had to size up since they are a little tight in the hip and butt area. I am small person with not many curves and found it surprising how tight it was with very thin base layers underneath. I returned the XS and ordered a small and they fit perfectly. I would highly recommend sizing up. Overall I like these pants. The bib only comes up to mid-chest so you still get protection from snow but you won't get too hot with an extra layer on your chest.
I seem to be in between a S and M, do these tend to fit big or small?
Hey Kate! They fit kinda big (more baggy than large)... I assume you'll just want to wear a base layer under these so I'd go with the size you generally order in bottoms (ie. do you usually where small sweats or medium )?
That should get you to the perfect size!
