Closeouts. Climb to new heights and stay dry on long descents in Columbia Sportswear's waterproof Summit Suspender waterproof pants. The removable suspenders provide custom fit adjustment and full side zippers make them a breeze to remove.

Great pants. Used them for snow shoeing. Didn't need the suspenders as they tended to hike up the pants too much until they were loosened to the point of falling off. But the fit adjustments were excellent so the suspenders were not needed.

These seem like nicely made waterproof pants. I was looking for full-zip non-insulated pants for backcountry skiing. I ordered them in size medium (8-10) which usually fits me; these were too tight in the thighs, and I will be returning them. My absolute perfect size is 8 petite, but I usually order regular length since petite is so hard to find. If you are slender in the thighs you may really like these pants.

Using for flying around to small communities (in small planes) in winter. Wide in hips, but love the full zips so I don't have to struggle with my boots! I layer this over your Lowe Alpine pants and Calida longjohns. Love you, STP

The description said insulated. These are not insulated at all but are just a shell. My teenaged daughter is ski racing and needed pants that had side seam zips, so these fit the bill. A little padding would have been useful.

I ordered these to use on the mountain (skiing, snowshoeing, etc). First off I was looking for something insulated but I must have missed that on the description. They felt like medium weight rain gear not something that would keep me warm in the snow. The fit seemed small (tight in thighs).

I was looking for a waterproof, uninsulated pair of ski pants with side zips for warmer weather skiing, that fit well (not tight but not baggy). These were just what I wanted. Have only used them a few times but so far happy with the quality.
Best Uses: Backcountry, Cross Country, Downhill, Snowboarding/Skiing
