Verified Buyer Reviewed by Annemarie from Massachusetts on Tuesday, November 29, 2016Love these pants! They fit like a dream and the inside is nice and soft. Good pockets and I really like the velcro straps on the side to adjust how tight you want them. Could be a little warmer though.
Reviewed by acronymforme from Tampa, Florida on Wednesday, November 16, 2016I ordered a size 16 per the sizing chart and I could barely squeeze my legs in and forget about getting them zipped or snapped. They are also very long and extended past my toes even if I went up on tip toe. For someone who has super skinny legs, they don't have zippers and such at the bottom so you could easily take them to a seamstress to have them taken up if you needed.
I would say that these particular pants probably follow the ROXY sizing chart instead - aka - meant for teenagers.
My Dimensions (American Female):
Inseam (Crotch to floor): 30"
I wear a size 31 in Joe's skinny jeans, I wear a size 10 in Michael Koors jeans.
The color is a very nice shade of teal. There are 2 snaps, but no hook, but I suppose if you are a skinny, tall teenager you don't need to worry about those things.
There are (2) hand pockets and a back pocket, all with solid zippers. This means that the zippers won't fall down & dump your stuff on the ground. The pockets are not slanted, but are vertical with the side seam. Again, anyone who fits into these pants doesn't need to worry about hip issues.
There are vents on these pants at the crotch, and the pants are fully lined and insulated. The specs say they are waterproof and and such, but I don't see any waterproof or breath-ability ratings on them anywhere.
Also, the most important part... Every single pair of ski pants that I have tried on which have an adjustable waist, has the adjustment INSIDE! It is a real PITA (excuse the pun) to adjust ski pants for the waist. It is trial and error. These pants have simple Velcro pull tab adjustment on the outside at each side of the waist band. This means that if you loose a little weight or put it on in the waist (not the legs), they will still fit.
Easy to say I will be returning these.
