Perfect fit/design for curvier petite gals
Finally a ski pant that fits like the size it claims to be!! I've been searching everywhere for a ski pant that would fit a shorter (almost 5' 4") curvier woman who has hips that normally fit comfortably in a size medium pant. However, the ski industry seems to think that only women without curves ski so I've had a really hard t... Read Moreime finding any ski pants that I can comfortably pull up around my thighs and button. I end up having to size up to Large and then even if the pants fit around my thighs they are WAY too long for my petite frame. Enter Patagonia with their perfect fitting ski pant that is just the right length for us more petite and curvy women. The waist fit is perfect and has adjustable straps for anyone with a smaller waist. The fit around the hips is a dream for anyone whose hips are wider than their waist. The design is tailored so it doesn't look too baggy and comes in at the hem. So if you're a shorter gal with some junk in the trunk and some curves on you this may be the pant for you. If your body shape is straighter down the sides and down the back, and if you prefer a close to the skin fit then you may find this pant to be too roomy for you in the hip and waist area.
Lots of leg room
I agree with the review that commented on smaller waist- huge baggy legs. These are a roomy ski pant and not the most flattering but man are they a work horse- I’ve skied 2 seasons so far with them in CO in all kinds of conditions, both resort and backcountry and they look like I just purchased them last week. They wick water, snow, slush and crud... Read More... so I guess for me, I’ll take the baggy look if the performance is top notch. I do however wish Patagonia made their short sizes in ANY color or print than black (ugh).
Not for my body type, whatever that is.
The waist in the large fit but the rear and legs were huge! The waist of the medium didn't fit, even with adjustment, but rear and legs were fine. I don't fit into any pants where the waist is tiny and the rear/legs huge. Please move towards a more realistic average fit!
We really appreciate your comments toward this and are sorry to hear the sizes we are offering in these didn't work out for you. We hope we can begin to hone our designs so that they can work for more body types in the future. Please feel free to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) these back to us for a credit and let us know if we can offer any help.
Just used these for day 1 of hiking and skiing. It was a very cold, windy day, with occasional snow squalls. They were perfect! I also really appreciate having a short size offered. I am 5'2", and usually have to roll up the cuffs so they don't drag. This short size was just right! Thanks Patagonia, for thinking of us shorter folks!
Just what I was looking for
Although they are still a little long for me (I'm 5'2" and always buy the short because everything is always so long), these are lightweight and easy to layer with for warmth. I love the location of the air vents for spring. The pockets are deep and in just the right places.
Love the sturdiness of the material and the adjustable waist
I purchased size small of the pants based on my other patagonia product. The waist of the Powder Bowl Pants turns out to be bigger than expected. Thank goodness for the adjustable waist band that allows me to still wear it comfortably.
