Closeouts. Shred the steep and deep like a guitarist shreds heavy metal riffs in Orage's Gibson bib pants. They're designed to provide full coverage and engineered for maximum protection with a Gore-Tex® waterproof breathable soft shell.

I'm 5'10'' 170lbs and wear a M shirt and 33" waist.
The Large is not too baggy through the seat, and there's only an inch or two of slack in the waist. The legs are baggy. Just about perfect for style and fit.
The knee vent zippers are annoying, they do tug on the knees, probably not a problem while alpine skiing. But definitely maybe if you are skinning or bending low on tele though.
Soft shell, there is adequate edge guard protection. Nice stretch, seems versatile for spring days and storm days. Upper body is a light stretch material which is technical, but not too steezy. Both thigh and knee vents.

Absolutely love these pants. Like others have mentioned, I was apprehensive about the pockets in the knees even after I bought them and if they would affect my skiing. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find not only was the knee pocket issue a non-issue, but these were really comfortable pants that were also warm for the 3 weeks I skied in Japan (you think it's cold in North America?!). The light upper portion bib kept the snow away from the skin while skiing deep deep powder. Love the pants and now looking for them in the other colour.

I own several Orage ski items including Jackets and pants. They are high tech and high quality. They have all of the pockets and vents you would expect. They wear like iron. The Orage XL has always fet me perfectly. These pants also are made to the highest quality. They are great. They just were too small. With great regret i returned them.

Seems like well made pants. Very poor fit. The knee vents are very poorly designed. The pants are on the tight side and the front knee vents catch when I bend my knees. I cannot imagine how annoying it would be at the end of the full day of skiing.
