Too long

I wish these came in different lengths because the 32in inseam is too long for me. Otherwise they feel great, but even with ski boots on they are too long.

Hey Janet, thank you for the review. We wanted to connect with you to let you know that we do offer alterations on some of our snow pants. We're able to length or shorten them; the amount depends on the pants, for these we can shorten a maximum of 3". If you're interested, please [reach out to us](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) so we could set that up for you.

Love these so much I bought two!

I bought these as my daily ski pants and I am super happy with them. They are super comfortable, the length is perfect and they are insulated but not too much. I bought a medium pair to layer under for cold days and a small pair that fits perfectly on their own. I love the adjustable waist so I can customize the fit for layering. Some of the review... Read Mores thought the waist was low or weird but for me they fit perfectly.

Maybe not best pair for regular winter wear

I purchased these for cold winters to wear with snow boots but the bottoms are very wide - might work for snowboard or ski boots but not made for regular boots

April 13, 2022

Warm, waterproof + comfortable

Love these pants for cold resort days! Vents are great if you get a bit too warm from the cozy insulation, and the length is great over a ski/snowboard boot. Would like it if they were a touch higher waisted, but the two-snap closure is really secure, and comfortable on the chairlift. Wouldn't wear them in temps over 35 F, unless you run prett...

Functional and warm

I got this to use for snowshoeing and skiing as the other Patagonia snow pants I had were not insulated. I like that Patagonia pants are mid-rise as opposed to most others that tend to be high rises and tight. The adjustable waist is great and does not chafe. I'm glad I got these pants and will probably keep it for years to come.

February 10, 2022


These snow pants are amazing!! Just the right amount of insulation: very warm, but with the option to unzip vents on each leg in case the wearer gets too toasty. They're super comfy, durable, stylish, and of course made with the top notch craftsmanship we all love and expect from Patagonia. Adjustable waist feature is also surprisingly comfy a...

Definitely a favorite addition to my daily winter wardrobe and I very highly recommend them for almost any outdoor winter pursuit.

Fits well and warm

I like the pants a lot. Suits their purpose for hiking, dog walking, snow play. I don't understand the bottom of the gaiters though. There are two loops on the elastic and a metal hook of some sort on the opposite side of the material. No idea how to use them.

January 24, 2022

Snow Gaiter is too loose for boots

The circumference of the gaiter is too larger for my winter snow boots, size 9.5. They are elastic but not tight enough. Might work better on a ski or snowboard boot but they just slip up and down over my boots. I am not sure these will serve their purpose for winter hiking or snowshoeing if they dont keep out the snow. The hook is not helpful if t... Read Morehe elastic is not tight enough to keep the gaiter secure around the boot, and theres no way to adjust the tightness. I was with my friend last weekend who has the same pair of pants from a few years back and hers has the same issue. Patagonia please add a snap or Velcro to make the gaiter adjustable!

January 18, 2022

Perfect winter hiking pant!

I wore these on a winter hike in Minnesota and they kept me very warm. I had a base layer underneath and thats it. The fit very well, not baggy snowpants that are bulky to walk around in. They have clips on the inside bottom that I attached to my boot and they stayed in place all day.

January 12, 2022

Warm, Waterproof, Work of Art

These pants are great! I was looking for a waterproof outside layer that also provided warmth (ie more than a shell) and these did the trick! This layer plus long underwear keep me warm on all my adventures. Bonus for how soft/flexible the shell fabric is on top.

December 7, 2021

Good quality, a bit large

This are good snow pants, the boot cut is a bit too wide at the bottom even when wearing ski boots. It would be worth reviewing the design and make them just a bit sleeker.

November 29, 2021

Great product

Went walking in Alaska normal day time temperatures -27c. Kept me warm.

October 29, 2021

Low Rise

These pants seem like great quality for skiing (although I have not worn them yet and debating if I'll just return), but the fit is awkward. Not sure how woman-friendly these pants are. They are super low rise, which for skiing is not ideal at all. Not trying to get snow everywhere. The waist is also quite large. Just a weird fit overall. I&#x...

Great Fit

I have always had trouble finding ski pants that fit. They are always too long or too big in the waist. Not this time. These are a great fit.

Good But...Entirely depends on Body Shape

The fit entirely depend on your body type. If you are a curvy 14+ with a butt, these are Not the pants for you.

Perfect fit, not too warm.

I was initially worried that these insulated pants would be too warm, but they've consistently been great for most (resort) skiing conditions. I wear it with a thin baselayer for most 25-35-degree days and they keep me toasty without getting overheated. The vent zips on the inner thighs help too!

Not for Every Body

Full Pant Fit Review: Fit for this pant entirely depends on body type. There is a light insulation so light to no base layer if Spring skiing but will need base layer for Colder days. If you are athletic curvy such as myself the fit will work ONLY if you are able to size up. Curvy Size 12, the XL will work perfectly for you. Size 14 Curvy - you c... Read Morean pull the XL pants up but a comfortable fit depends on your butt. If you are slim and straight up/down w/ no curve these pants may work. FYI there is NO Stretch. If you have a butt (round not wide) they will not. Size 16 these are not the pants for you. Super disappointed that brands still dont get athletic bodies can be curvy as well. There is a large untapped market for athletic gear that can fit a good curvy body. Opportunity for improvement by the brand here make a different cut of pant and jacket that fits a broader group of women who have curves ;) if you do this I can be a client for life- now I cant be as life has happened to my body .lol. and Im sized out of your brand. Im a size 14 5'9 built like Serena Williams, have been a competitive athlete my whole life.

Almost Perfect

I have used these pants several times hiking in low snowy conditions and they kept me warm, complete wind resistant, and no water leaked through. However, I wish they had a build in pull string round the ankle because I hiked 10+ miles in 3 ft of snow and the snow made its way to the underneath the pants and to the top of my boots. No snow actually... Read More was on my skin. But, had there been a string to pull it tight, this would have lessened the snow effect. It was below 0 with wind, and I had a small base layer and these pants, knee down was submerged in snow, and they kept me warm the entire time. I needed to get a size smaller, because I thought I would need a thick layer underneath so I sized up. However, they keep you warm enough that you won't need a thick underlayer. Mine are too big and I may be stuck with them since Ive already warn them. Dont size up, because you won't need too much layers under them.

Inner Thigh Zippers are Awkward

I seem to be between a Medium and Large in Patagonia sizing, the Large would be swimming and the Medium slimmer than I prefer. Still, I kept the pants and skied half a season in them. I wish the waist was a bit higher, no one likes snow down their back. They work well overall, but the main problem I have with them is the inner thigh zippers are inc...

fashionable and functional

I was hoping for a tall size in these snow pants because usually the best we tall girls can hope for is solid black. However, if i wear them low on my hips, i can probably get away with it. They were too cute to pass up. I just wish that tall sizes were offered in all styles - one can hope :)

Love the thigh zippers in case I overheat!

I was hesitant to buy an ivory color ski pant but this one looks great. The fit is fine and they seem quite warm. I actually bought them for long winter COVID walks, not skiing.

Quality product

It's a well made garment. My only dislike is that the waist is lower than I would feel comfortable with when doing sports activities. I had purchased size M initially, but had to exchange it for S. I'm 5'10", 130lb wearing 6/M on a regular basis, but I find that in Patagonia I'm S.

Great Fit!

I have been trying (and failing) for months to find a pair of snow pants that fit my athletic thighs and significantly smaller waist, all while being not too long.

Too small or too big

I wanted to love these ski pants. They seem to be of a good quality. My problem is with sizing. I typically wear a size 10-12 (kind of somewhere in between).

I love these pants! They kept me warm in the slushy snow. I have an athletic build and wanted it to be long enough. Both were achieved with these pants since I was able to cinch down the wait enough to fit.

I had a surprisingly hard time finding a pair of snow pants that fit! I tried a few other brands first, but couldn't button smalls and mediums wouldn't stay up.

Great Ski Pant

This is my second pair of the snowbelle insulated pants. I like the adjustable strap on the waistband, they are warm but not too warm and have zippers to cool down when needed. They fit easily over ski boots and are a flattering fit. The color is much nicer than I anticipated it appears pink online but is more of a berry color in person.

Happily Surprised

I ordered these online and excepted the sizing might be off. I put them on and sure enough the waist was way too big.

Sizing issues

I'm new to Patagonia and purchased multiple items for my first ski trip. Using their size charts I came up with a size large for the Snowbelle pants. They were enormous. At least 4 inches too large in the waist area. Using the velcro pull would have looked ridiculous. Perhaps on one or two inches it would be okay. Note, the online pictures mak... Read Morees it look like the velcro is on the outside. It's not. It's on the inside of the waistband. So, I order a medium. That fits much better, but I have only maybe an inch of room to spare. Maybe Patagonia should sit down with their cost accountants, engineers and marketing team to see if switching to a numerical sizing would make more sense than small, med, large, etc. I probably am a size 10. Perhaps a 12 if i wanted some wiggle room. I have a feeling a numerical sizing system would get me much closer to what I want over small, med, large which has a broader size range. FYI I am 5'4" and 135 pounds.

Fabulous Snow pants for my 16-year-old daughter who goes through a different pair every year. She said these are hands-down the best snow pants she’s ever had. She uses them for snowboarding. She is almost 5’10 and they are almost too short but she thinks they look great.

Needs More Pockets

Warm and waterproof, nice adjustable belt inside. But seriously lacking pockets! Only 2, no back pockets. So on a warm day riding without a coat, you gotta cram keys, phone, pass, debit card and ID into 2 small pockets and then try not to lose one of the above when opening them.

exactly what I was looking for

These pants have been great so far! I've had them for a little over a month now and have worn them out in the snow lots, skiing at the resort, touring, and even doing work in the snow. They feel really lightweight but I've yet to feel cold in them either. And on these late spring days, the vents on the inner thigh are awesome.

Great for a Basic Ski Pant

I wouldn't wear these mountaineering or backcountry skiing, but for a day on lifts these are great. I LOVE the fit of these. My other ski pants (same size) are always tighter and I love how these give you some room to breathe / eat. The length is great and they are warm.
