Patagonia Men's Storm Shift Ski/Snowboard Pants - Short

True To Size

Well-built and everything you need

I really like these pants, but its hard to tell if you need a large or an extra large being my size. I wear a size 36 in the waist in the large pair fits like 35 and the XL fits like 38. It seems like most Patagonia gear its built for taller people, so I like that they offer a short version.

Little baggie but well made

Well-made pants but unfortunately they are a little baggy. I wish the waist adjustment was not Velcro and a bit more stable. With that being said they repel water well and will last a long time

Too Small

I'm a ski patrol at three different areas and was looking forward to new ski pants. It used to be the size you ordered accommodated base layer(s), but not any more! The size you order barely fits without layers. If I go a size up, then the leg inseam is too long. Patagonia provides a limited selection for men who are under tall. Can't win... Read More for losing! "I'm not over weight, I'm under tall".

Hi David! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're sorry to hear the pants were too snug. That said, our Storm Shift Ski Pants don't feature a graduated inseam length which means if you select a larger waist size the inseam is still 30''. We'd encourage you to make an [exchange](

Great pants

Excellent pants! They fit great and are surprisingly supple for being waterproof. I bought them to replace my old Patagonia ski pants I had been wearing for 25 years!

Pants are just what I was looking for. Fit is true to size, material and workmanship are topnotch! Looking forward to having these pants for many years to come!

Solid Pants

Feel heavier weight, but are still gore tex. If planning for primarily touring, Id aim for a light weigh pant.

Solid pant for skiing

I bought this pant because the utility ski pant did not come with a short inseam but the storm shift pant does. While not as tough as the utility ski pant, the storm shift ski pants fits well and holds up well so far in ski patrol duties.

Was looking for a good

Was looking for a good pair of pants for patrolling. Needed shorter length. I am a 34" waist, med too small and large was a little bit too big. Suspenders will suffice.......
