Not bad could be better

Ive been boarding and tubing in these pants and they have kept me perfectly warm and dry. The gaiters are snug enough to keep out snow but still easy to pull away from my boots with gloved hands if I need to tighten the laces.
I did have quality issues. I went and spent a whole weekend in them before I washed them. After washing the inner lining on both sides near the pockets came apart so the insulation was exposed. That didnt bother me too much because I could just have my dry cleaner fix it. I wore them again the next weekend and the zipper kept separating. Trying to fix the a zipper with cold hands is a pain not to mention walking around with the barn doors open. I had the seamstress sew up the zipper because I could slip into them. This part is minor, the velcro tabs that keep the pockets close tend to come undone and get rolled up in the pocket lining. Either larger velcro tabs, zippers or snaps would be better.
Yes, I could have returned them got new ones but the price was no big deal and time down is fun down. I am and oddball size and not too many companies make my size so being able to find something that fits and not have to get it altered is always a plus.
