Runs smallVerified Buyer Reviewed by William from Texas on Wednesday, May 9, 2018Overall quality of the pants seems to be pretty good. Easy to adjust or remove suspenders is a plus. However, I wear a men's large and these must be a large for women. They are only slightly big on my 14 year old son that is 7" shorter and about 80 pounds lighter. Buy a size larger. I would send them back, but I got an amazing deal on them and will just let my son use them.
Ski pantsVerified Buyer Reviewed by the good wife from Maryland on Wednesday, April 4, 2018I bought these for my husband just before going to Utah for some spring skiing. The pants were fine, they kept him warm enough, although the temps never dipped below freezing. Two points to make though: one, they were a little long, and my husband is six foot (we ordered the XL); and two, the suspenders rubbed against his nipples, causing him to have to wear Bandaids on them the second day!
Size Runs SmallVerified Buyer Reviewed by Cheyenne Boy from Idaho on Monday, March 26, 2018The size of these ski pants was much smaller than I expected. The fabric also seemed to be less durable than I would expect. When I returned the item they charged me a $6 fee to return. Not the best online shopping experience.
Order a size up, not quite as warm as expected.Reviewed by Michael in upstate NY from Columbia County, NY on Tuesday, March 13, 2018I ordered a large, which in a few other brands usually fits me perfectly over my jeans and long johns, but the larges are like mediums. I gave it to my wife. I then ordered a 2nd pair, XL and it fit exactly like a Large. The design is excellent otherwise, meaning pockets, snap and clip at the waist, and suspenders.
I expected more warmth. When I had the large pair I tried them without my jeans, just my long johns, and I was outright cold. When I use my jeans and long johns, then I feel warm, and a bit warmer than my Columbia shell snow pants, but not that much when I sit in the snow. I play with my 3 year old outside and so I kneel and sit in the snow a lot, and I hoped that buying insulated pants would make that more comfortable than just with my shell pants. I would say, some, but not that much.
When I just walk around and stand, then the insulation seems to make a difference and I am extremely comfortable. I once read reviews for the Mountain Hardware Compressor pants, with 80g of insulation and people wrote about being too hot if the weather was not well below freezing. I expected to be warmer with these Peak Performance pants than I am.
I am torn when giving these a rating, since the build and design seem very good, though the sizing is clearly off for USA standards, and the insulation really does so little if I am sitting in the snow. But otherwise, wearing them, I certainly do enjoy them. I just feel the cold more than I want to.
I recently took one of those inflatable seat cushions that are very thermal protecting and put it on the snow to sit on, and then I can say that I was perfectly warm in below freezing weather and could have sat for hours and not gotten cold.
Sized SmallVerified Buyer Reviewed by Joyflyer from SC on Tuesday, February 27, 2018My husband is 6' tall and weighs about 195. He is a little heavier than usual right now, but the size L in these barely fastened on him. All his ski gear is size L, and he has no trouble getting into anything else. He went to a local shop and bought a North Face size L. I hope this helps someone with their selection. They seemed to be great ski pants, but we'll never get to put them to the test.
Size MattersVerified Buyer Reviewed by Texas Skier from Texas on Monday, February 26, 2018This is well made but the sizing is bizarre. I got 2XL and it didn’t come close to fitting comfortably. They need to advise that the item runs small or completely rename their sizing.
Peak PerformanceVerified Buyer Reviewed by Saltyrunner from RI on Sunday, February 18, 2018Nice material warm on those cold days very comfortable I would recommend these to a friend
Watch the sizingVerified Buyer Reviewed by carl seattle from carl seattle on Monday, February 12, 2018Can't really say much about these other than they are not true ski pants, more like snow pants for really cold outdoor weather such as snowmobiling etc. They are much too bulky to be used for skiing unless you ski in zero degree weather. The sizing is supposed to be 28-32 for SMALL and I'm a 30-31 and they were too tight all around.
Runs smallReviewed by C58 from NY on Monday, February 12, 2018Seem to be constructed well. The gaiter cuff was strange, tight, don't see how they go over boots. The size runs really small. I'm a 35 waist. Ordered a large (37 waist), and could barely get them snapped. I would call them a 33/34 at best for a large.
Peak Performance Baze PantsVerified Buyer Reviewed by VT from VT on Wednesday, January 31, 2018The fit is a little snug, but the length is perfect for a medium. I have medium size of other ski pants, and those are much looser. They seem to be put together well. The suspenders are easily removable, but also well attached by velcro (no [...] clips). All-in-all, I think they'll be good for years to come

“What is waist measurement on large and extra large? ”
If you hover your mouse over or click on the sizes, the corresponding waist measurement will be displayed.
I bought the large and the waste size is about a mens 34-36. The insulation is good enough that a thin base layer is adequate. I'm 6' tall and the length is pretty good. The cuffs do not have a zipper which makes them a little difficult to fit around a snowboard boot so may be more difficult with a ski boot. If this is used as just a snow pant with winter boots then should be adequate. Another note is the pocket zippers are difficult and gets easily caught in the pocket liner. Already have one pocket out of commission. Not the best pant I've bought but they work for the most part. If the price is right might still be a good buy.
A little more info than you asked for, but thought I would disclose my overall opinion
I bought a medium and I wear a size 32 so they are true to size. I love these, they fit well and warm. HAve even had a couple of compliments
I have a pair of large Baze pants. Love the product. I am 6' 1", 185 lbs, with a 34" waist. I have large legs, but still find I have enough room in the seat and legs. I have plenty of room in the waist, so I think you could go up to a 35" waist before needing to go to the extra large.
I purchased the size large and it is sold as a 37 waist. I am a 34 but with a base layer, turtle neck and sweater underneath, I'm very comfortable. I have plenty of movement and no restricted areas.
“What are the inseams for small and medium sizes
According to Peak Performance, the inseam is 32".
