I had bought the blue style about 6 months ago. Was thrilled when I saw the orange one still available. Material dries very quickly. My previous one has lasted through numerous hiking and canoeing trips. Hoping this one does the same.

The Jacket is super light. Pure European design. Slim. I am 6"4" 195 pounds. Bought size L.It was a perfect fit, but i send it back for exchange on a XL . Wanted to have a little more room for a light sweater.The name Descente is white, not black. But it is o.k.
When you wear it you feel like in T Shirt.. that is how light it is.. Warm though and very comfortable.
Very good with blue jeans.

Bought these pants mainly for recreational skiiing. They fit well and it is very easy to move. They are lightweight but warm enough for 0 degrees with only a thin layer underneath. Zippers and fasteners seem to be well made.

The windchill is -25 and I just came in...the Descentes were just fine. If anything, the insulation may keep this ski instructor a bit too toasty on a warm teaching day. Comfortable and they fit well, although suspenders are needed to keep them from bagging on my 30" inseam legs. A very good value. I have yet to ski them in wet weather to test water resistance...

Order a size up. I am 5'3" and 123 lbs. Usually wear a 4 or 6 in women's pants. I ordered a 6 in these and they were tight through hips, behind, and crotch. Just ordered the 8. I will be returning the 6. My old pants are Marker size 8 and too big.

I had ordered a pair of the Greyhawks. I have to say i was not very impressed. They weren't what I was hoping for. Don't get me wrong. They are a decent pant. To me the material was a little chincy. They felt very light. Which can be good and/or bad. I personally was looking for a "beefier" pant. One with a tougher and thicker material. One that would have a higher water proof rating. For the casual skier or snow recreation person these are a good pant. If you can get them with a coupon for around 80 bucks then in think its a good deal. Just not for me. I sent them back and ordered a pair of Flylow Chemical pants. Which I absolutely love! Double the waterproofness than the Greyhawks. Much better material. And they are gnarly looking! Just for the record. I am just under 6'1" and weigh 170. The large for the descentes fit very good.
