The North Face designed the Freedom Insulated Pant with a relaxed fit that's right at home from the backcountry to the terrain park, and plenty of pocket space to take care of your odds and ends while you shred. A waterproof breathable shell provides storm protection while a layer of synthetic insulation keeps all your heat from escaping while you ride. In order to hold off storms and keep water from getting to your skin, the Freedom pant starts with a tough nylon shell and a waterproof breathable HyVent 2L laminate. Then The North Face adds its 60g Heatseeker synthetic insulation to lock in warmth on sub-zero days. The pant's Chimney Vent cooling system, which funnels air from the StretchVent gaiters to the inner thigh vents, keeps things comfortable once the sun comes out to heat things up. Not to be outdone in the storage space department, the Freedom pant comes with two hand pockets and a large cargo pocket on the right thigh. To finish things off, The North Face hooked the pant up with reinforced kickpatches and edge guards to protect the pant from sharp ski edges and muddy parking lots.

- River Sports Outfitters

If you do enough ski pant research and product comparisons, you'll probably decide that most performance ski pants fall into two categories: Ski pants that are highly waterproof but rigid, and ski pants that are stretchy but only water resistant. The North Face Freedom Insulated Pant is one of the few that offers plenty of mobility and waterproof protection. That's because The North Face relaxed the fit through the seat, knees, cuffs and thighs in their Freedom Insulated Pant. It's a free-fitting choice that layers well, although the Heatseeker insulation is usually warm enough for most winter recreation enthusiasts. Along with the articulated knees, the Freedom Insulated Pant features exterior thigh vents with mesh gusset linings to help keep you cool without allowing excess moisture to filter among your inner layers. These thigh vents are coupled with The North Face Chimney Venting system to help distribute cool air inside the pant.
