Good pants for playing in the snow.


  • Adjustable waist
  • Side zipper vents
  • Zippered front pockets
  • Belt loops
  • Powder cuff


  • Fit a little large
  • Small protecting shield
  • A little heavy

I have had the pants for a couple of years now and they are my main alpine ski pants. They have held up well considering what I put them through. 

I mentioned most of the pros already. These also have a large thigh pocket that I have never used because the zippered front pockets are deep enough to handle what I carry.


I am not sure how breathable these are, but you will appreciate the side vents that are on the inside thigh. And these pants are a little on the heavy side. With that said they always keep me warm and dry. 

The only changes I would make is the front closer is a snap with a small Velcro backup that could hold better. I need to add suspenders. They fit a little large for me. These are a medium; I am 5’9”.


Also I find the protector plate to be a little small and could be thicker. I have cut the pants with my ski in a couple of spots. Other than that I am happy with this purchase and these do everything that I expected from them. 

Warm and dry

I have a pair that I like a lot, but like you said they’re pretty heavy and the waist snap/Velcro is a little small. The thigh vents are too small for me to use them if it’s much above 0F. They laugh at the branches & thorns I find myself snowshoeing through, though!
