Powder pants

Great fit if a little long! Good movement and excellent material - still waiting for snow to see how they work on the slopes!

I'm in a sizing black hole...

I can only rate these pants based on sizing--I'm 5'8", 165 pounds, and I carry extra weight in my thighs (a bit of an athletic pear). I tried the large first and was just swimming in them. I could adjust the waist down, but the seat area was just too baggy, even with layers, so I exchanged for a medium. I could get the medium on, but... Read More with layers it just felt too tight. I feel like I either need to gain or lose about 10 pounds to make either size work. Disappointed, because I think the pants would probably be great if they fit! Love the orange color and the features. Ah well. Can't win them all!

Ski Patrol Tough

This is my 2nd pair of Patagonia ski pants.. the first pair is still going strong after about 8 years, I just felt I deserved and a new pair for myself! They fit great the length is just right and I just wear a base layer underneath. They pass the ski all day Ski Patrol test!

These are great fitting ski pants. Although I have not worn the skiing yet. will be a good replacement for my old Snowbelle pants. An added plus, the orange color is great.

many pockets

I first bought M which was too big so got S instead. The color is nice and it has adjustable velcro in the waist. It comes with "Recco Reflector"a device that can signal the ski resort if you get lost. I'm 5.5 120 lbs.

nice color

I bought M at first but they were too big. S is fine. 5.5, 120 lbs. Pants got pockets and velcro in waist for fitting. Also, it has a "Recco Reflector" that makes you searchable to professional rescuers by bouncing back a directional signal to the ski resort.

Great lightweight ski pants

Just took these skiing as an upgrade from some previous snow pants. Currently 5'6"-5'7" and 170 pounds, and got the large. It fit well, with room for moderate curves (I think my natural waist is ~33" right now, and fullest point of my hips is ~43"). These hit about mid-rise for me - not so low-slung as some of the pant... Read Mores designed for snowboarders, which is good for keeping snow out. Definitely glad I got the uninsulated version - it's less bulky and lets you modify for the weather way more. On a day in the teens, I could layer thermals and pants beneath them; on a day in the thirties just needed a pair of cold-weather leggings to stay warm. Also more of a nice-to-have, but the pockets along the thigh are soooo much nicer for storing odds and ends than ones just below the waistband (which invariably pinch and get uncomfortable while you're sitting on a lift and can't adjust anything lest you lose your wallet to a snowbank 20 feet below).

Well-Made Winter Outer Layer

I bought these to replace some circa 2005 softshell pants and a similarly aged rain pant and they did it wonderfully! We were between 0 and 10 degrees F for a skiing vacation and with the pack out tights, my legs weren't cold. There wasn't enough backside insulation without something to sit on. Regarding fit, I usually order size 30/Med... Read Moreium, but these have no give at the waist, so they feel a bit constricting when I sit down. They are also about 1 or 2 inches longer than I'd like. It is nice for a ski boot, but I don't like it when it drags with regular boots on.

I've never skied before and the friendly & helpful staff where amazing at finding the right pants for me. The smalls were too small and the mediums were too big, but there is an adjustable waistband on the inside of the pants so I went with the mediums. I've worn them several times already and the quality is great!

Great fabric! Think the pant

Great fabric! Think the pant technology would be great but fit is way off! Legs are beyond large and crotch area way to big ! Wish they fit better I would have kept them!

Great shell pant for Alpine

Great shell pant for Alpine skiing. Good waterproofing, durable. Runs a little short but not a deal breaker, I just like a baggier fit around my boots.

Great fit

Very comfy and they look great, plus they match my jacket

Perfect ski pants!

Great for skiing, great size for layering, depending on temperature! Black ski pants work well with everything!
