Verified Buyer Reviewed by CJ from Indiana on Friday, December 30, 2016The quality seems good, they just ran pretty snug through the thighs so I returned them
Verified Buyer Reviewed by acronymforme from Tampa on Wednesday, December 14, 2016This is my 2nd pair. Although they are long, the seamstress did a great job shortening the length. Love these pants
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Anatolii from New Castle on Saturday, December 10, 2016Good ski pants. Fits true to size. Nice fabric, good quality, nice color. Warm and comfortable.
Reviewed by acronymforme from Tampa, Florida on Wednesday, November 16, 2016Wow. I really love these pants. I ordered a size XL and they fit PERFECTLY! even though they are a little long. They don't have zippers and such at the bottom, so I can easily take them to a seamstress to have them taken up (the story of my life).
These pants say "Classic fit".
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.
I purchased another pair of Rossingol's that were a size 16 and they were so tight, it was like I was wearing skinny jeans. These however are PERFECT! Sorry for being redundant, but it is so rare that I find Ski pants that fit. Want to feel short and fat? Try shopping for Ski pants!
I also like the color. It is a very unique dark blue. On the gray side, but a muted dark gray blue. In addition to a double snap above the zipper, there is also a solid slide hook so you don't have to fight getting them snapped.
There are only (2) hand pockets, but they are slanted at an angle and have solid zippers. This means that the zippers won't fall down & dump your stuff on the ground, and the pockets won't stick out (girls with hips know what I'm talking about).
There are no vents on these pants, but that is totally ok w/me. They are fully lined and insulated and that's all I care about. I have the coldest toes on the planet which takes me off the slopes. My local ski shop told me that is because I need to keep my core warmer. These are water proof & Breathable to 20,000. I tried them on and could instantly feel the warmth. Can't wait.
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 my waist. It is trial and error. These pants have simple velcro pull tab adjustment on the outside at each side of the waist band. Can I say I love them again? This means that if I hopefully loose a little weight, they will still fit :-)
$20 to get them taken up in the length? Totally worth it.
I may consider buying more colors.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Susan from NC on Monday, April 4, 2016Although the pants seemed to be a good fit to start with, when I wore them to actually go skiing, they kept loosening up in the waist and slipping down. They have elastic/velcro waist adjustments, but the elastic was too stretchy. Wore once, then had to go and buy another pair of ski pants.
Reviewed by Gingerkite from Northern Virginia on Tuesday, February 16, 2016Material and styling was nice, just too tight in the crotch to be comfortable. I normally wear a 14 or 16, but XL was not big enough for me.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by DGRN from Connecticut on Wednesday, February 10, 2016Very warm and wind and water pants used in Colorado w Terramar base layer and stayed warm in negative degree temperature. The reason I give them a 4 instead of 5 is the low cut in the back made it necessary to keep pulling the pant up despite the velcro adjuster.
