Like skiing in a wet diaper!

Reviewed by Griddy from Spring Break Ski from Texas on Wednesday, April 3, 2013
I bought these for our ski trip because they were a great price and had decent reviews. I couldn't fit into my black Marker ski pants I've worn for past several years and didn't want to spend a lot of money for a bigger size. ( I plan to fit back into my old ones next year.) Buying cheap pants was a big mistake! Although the price is great and they are very water proof they do not wick away moisture AT ALL! It was quite warm this Spring Break and my legs would sweat like crazy. After only 1 hour of skiing the insides of these pants would be SOAKING wet. I don't have a problem with excessive sweating when I exercise so I was really suprised by this. Obiously I am used to wearing athletic gear that wicks away moisture so the feeling iln these pants was very uncomfortable, to say the least. Even if the temperature had been much colder any exertion that elevates your heart rate would create a damp,uncomfortable environment.
Great pants to sit in the snow or slowly walk, but NOT suitable for any winter sports. Pay up for real ski pants!
