The perfect soft shell!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Laura from Great White North on Saturday, February 25, 2012
Just the pant I needed for Nordic skiing. I am very glad I read the reviews and found they ran small. Depending on the brand I usually wear a 10-12. I ordered a large (12-14) and the fit is perfect with enough room for a base layer for extra warmth on windy days. The calf area is a little form fitting but the zipper at the ankle allows the pant to fit over anything except downhill ski boots. The rise is at the waist which is perfect for tucking in a shirt and keeping it tucked. Also, I'm able to bend and crouch without them sliding down my backside like some low rise pants. The length is a perfect 31" and they are sharp enough to dress up with a nice sweater if the occasion called for it. If they had more colors I'd own one of each! Very comfortable and versatile. Can't say enough good things.
