Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

Summary

The best ski pants I have ever owned. Perfect for lift served skiing and colder backcountry tours.

Pros

  • Quality Gore-tex softshell fabric with appropriate reinforcement patches
  • Large thigh pockets, big enough for a large subway sandwich
  • Unique zipper vents that open slightly to the back of the thigh
  • Relaxed fit
  • Tobiko is easy to see
  • Arc'teryx quality

Cons

  • The built-in belt is kinda wimpy, there are belt loops for a more substancial belt
  • The color, Tobiko, is very bright

I acquired these pants through a product testing program I am in. They are my go-to pants for winter activities  when I need protection from the weather, especially when it is cold. They are very well made, albeit on the baggy side.  

The Gore-tex softshell fabric seems to be very durable, breatheable and weatherproof. The two thigh pockets will hold tons of stuff, even a water bottle. There  is one more pocket for keys, lip balm, etc. There are extremely tough fabric patches on the inner cuff which should keep ski edges a bay.  

The gaitors are easy to use, but don't come with a hook. I like the partial vents slightly behind the outside thigh area.
