Bought these pants for my daughter since her old Oakley En Bleiler pants showed some wear. These pants were not as warm and thick as we expected. They are great pants depending what conditions you snowboard in, like warmer sunny days in Colorado and Utah and working up a sweat on tricks in the terrain park. But for cold Michigan night boarding in 20F temperatures these pants were not warm enough for us. Had to send back even that we loved the style and design. Great length for 33" inseam legs!

These pants have a stylish, low-rise fit, but tend to run a bit big. I am a true medium (size 6-8) in most things, however the medium fit really loose. With that said, I tried the small and they barely cleared my hips. Once you layer up, the bagginess becomes less of an issue and there is plenty of room to move comfortably. If you are thinking of returning your M for a S as I did, know that the S is a true S.

These pants fit low on the waist and really enhance the glutes with room to move. I'm a solid size 8 when it comes to jeans, but find that the sz 6 fits perfect. I'm a Midwest skiier/rider so I wear various weight long underwear depending on the conditions. These will be perfect for spring break skiing out West. Lots of zippered pockets too.

I knew when I ordered these they sat low on the hips. But not only that, they're low on the back side, too. I like low waist, especially in jeans, but after trying these on, I don't want to be pulling these pants up constantly while I'm skiing, bending, sitting, getting off lift. I don't need aggravation while I'm skiing, you're already dressed in so many layers, the added discomfort isn't needed. Sent these back. I'm a size 6/8 and ordered the small from other reviewers comments. They fit perfectly. They are a little bulky. I ordered the gray color, which matched my jacked perfectly. So sad these didn't work. Kinda hard to find that color gray (sheet metal, I believe). Ended up getting the Columbia Bacall pants (black with silver strips) in a small. [...] These pants are good for snowboarders. They're heavily padded.

These pants are great! Very fashionable, lightweight, soft... They have a mesh liner which is something I really like... not like the pants w/ the slippery liner that sticks to you if you're sweating. Definitely size down. I was afraid to, and order both the Large (which I would normally wear) and the Medium... the Medium fit perfectly.
