Mammut Vail Ski Pants - Waterproof (For Women)
Closeouts. Ride Riva Ridge in style this year in Mammut Vail ski pants, with DRYTech® premium 2L waterproof breathable technology to keep you dry as you tear up the fresh powder. Two vents and a highly breathable fabric keep you cool through a tough section of bumps, too.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Sarah from Colorado on Friday, July 3, 2015Really nice pants, and flattering fit too. But they do run small. I usually wear a 4-6 (small) but needed an 8 (I'm 5' 6" and 125 lb). They are a little long in the length for me, but I think with boots will be fine. Love the soft lining too. Color is bright without being over-bearing.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by digs from Revelstoke BC on Wednesday, October 17, 2012the Lobster colour is pretty good....not the pinky/pale orange that's on the website
Reviewed by koski from Utah on Monday, September 17, 2012Can't wait to get these in some pow! These have a trim fit but give in all the right places. I also like these better than the Robellas. I normally wear a size 6 - I'm 5'6" 130lbs but got these in an 8 in curry- thanks for the advice.
- Pros: Great Fit, Unique Color, Well Made
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lotusnow from Boulder, CO on Friday, August 24, 2012I bought these because I wanted color and a higher waterproof rating- my current pants have started to get heavy on wet days, absorbing vs. repelling the water.
I wanted a narrow fit at the hips, with room to move my legs without restriction. Because I snowboard and telemark, I want to be able to move freely; yet, I also don't want huge baggy clothing that seems to be a common cut in both women and men's ski pants these days.
Initially ordered the curry, which I though would have more gold in it- best description of color is firefighter yellow. It is bright, but fun. I wasn't sure I could pull it off and trying not to clash with my various jackets I also ordered the berry color. Once I had both on hand, I couldn't decide because both colors are pretty cool- so I am keeping them both. Yes, a bit indulgent, but they were on sale.
I also tried the Mammut Robella pants, which have more insulation, but same shell material. The Robella would definitely be warmer, but the fit was higher at the waist and fuller in the hips. Although I run cold, I hate getting overheated in my legs. I didn't like the overall fit of the Robella. The Vail pants have a thin layer of fleece for insulation, but are basically a shell. The Vail pants are both slimming while allowing freedom of movement.
There was a lot of comment on sizing- I am generally a 6 in pants and decided to go with the 8, which fits perfectly. These are cut for women who don't want a baggy ski pant, are not full in the hip area and are more on the athletic build end of the spectrum. I'm 5'5" and 130 if that helps anyone gauging size.
I haven't worn them skiing yet- it is August, but I'm psyched to go rock a bright yellow and vibrant pink pair of pants after 20 years of skiing in black.
- Best Uses: Skiing snowboarding
- Pros: Great fit cool colors
Reviewed by Mary the skier from Salt Lake City, UT on Saturday, July 14, 2012I normally wear a size 6, but these pants seem a little tight (particularly since I'd be wearing long underwear underneath). So, returned the 6, and will try out the size 8. Got the curry color, which is totally cool-looking. Hope to use them on the slopes next winter!
- Best Uses: Downhill Skiing
- Cons: Pants run small, Waist seems a little high
- Pros: Nice design, Nice Fabric, Technical
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tnartselap from Incline Village, NV on Monday, March 19, 2012These pants fit me to a tee, but I do find it a bit difficult to tuck in layers or thick clothing. I love them!
- Pros: Comfortable
