Back in 1947, Klaus Obermeyer became one of the first ski instructors on Aspen Mountain (he still skis more than 100 days per year). Upon watching his students struggle with the cumbersome and restrictive clothing of the day, he made it his mission to design skiwear that would keep them warm, dry and limber. Obermeyer gave birth to a variety of industry firsts, including the down parka, the duo construction ski boot, the turtleneck sweater, and even high altitude sunscreen! So wear Obermeyer performance skiwear and plan to play a little longer ... Learn more about Obermeyer. It's still designed and tested in the Rockies, one of the world's most exhilarating wilderness playgrounds. ... Less

It is summer so I havent tried these on in the winter. The pant I received said Long, but it was just long enough for me (5'10"). Not sure if it was a true long, but they fit! I got a great deal, and i am hoping they are warm enough because they match my new jacket. Easy to move in, and come up high in the back (not like bootcut pants that sink low). The white seemed a little seethrough, but I could be imagining it. I may just need light colored long underwear.

I bought this jacket for the longer length and flattering style and of course the excellent brand. I am not disappointed. Have yet to ski in it but am sure it will be plenty warm enough for our Aussie winters!

Too soon to rate the warmth, as I just got them, but the fit is good. I am 5'9" about 145 pounds, with a 32 inch waist. The mediums fit me just right. With the adjustable Velcro waist tabs they will accommodate more base layers than I could contemplate. Fabric is soft and not as noisy as some others. Thigh venting will be a benefit on boot pack exercises.

On the downside, even though these pants are marked as a small make, I ended up needing a size down from what the measurements show I would need, and they are still very roomy. However, apart from the sizing issues, they are EXCELLENT quality and look really cool and are super warm. LOVE them.

I love this jacket, the fit is great (thought can't wear too many layers underneath it).
However, after owning in for 7 months (probably wore it a total of 2-3 months as have heavier winter coat for much of cold season), I snapped and unsnapped the lowest of the 3 snaps on the jacket and it pulled straight through, leaving a hole in my jacket!
And now it's out of stock...I was told I may get some $ back, in order to try and have the jacket fixed.
