Ms Storm Shift Pants - Regular

True To Size

Perfect ski pants

These are excellent ski pants and it is nice that they offer a choice of lengths which is a ideal and makes the fit perfect.

Odd fit

I'm 6'2" and 175 lbs with a 32" waist and the mediums were just too big around the waist. I had to have it on the farthest tightness which causes the pants to crinkle in an odd way and irritate my sides. The pants are heavy so you definitely want them snugged around the waist. Bummed because I typically only love Patagonia gear ... Read Morebut I think they need to re-evaluate the sizing for their pants.

We continuously work on improving our products, and your feedback will undoubtedly help us in that process.

Men's Stormshift Pants

The pants fit well, true to size with adequate waist adjustment. Length is right. I am concerned that the pants will run hot with the liner, but especially with the relatively short thigh zipper vent. A longer zipper vent that extends from hip to knee would be better for truly venting, making the pants suitable for alpine, telemarking, skinning and... Read More late fall, winter and spring time hiking. A full side-zip pant (an older version of these pants) without a liner makes for a more versatile garment, allowing one to alter base layer weight to match the temperature range.

We appreciate your feedback, William! Please note that the mesh liner is not for any warmth, but rather to wick moisture and prevent feeling the slick backing of the Gore-Tex fabric against your skin. We encourage you to take a look at the other [Men's Ski & Snowboard Pants]( like the Mountain Utility Pants or the Stormstride Pants, which have longer vents on the legs. Please reach out to our Customer Service team if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks for taking a moment to send us your review!

Super light

Smaller around the waist but true to size in length. Still fits well just a little tight.

I bought to replace 10 year old goretex pants

I bought to replace old goretex pants. All the same features

Love these Ski pants

Bought these for my son and he loved them. He said they fit great.

Medium is too tight, Large too loose

6', 180lbs, 34" waist. I originally bought these in a Large and had to return them because they were too loose in the waist and too baggy for my liking. Even with the velcro tabs on the waist adjusted all the way tight you could easily pants me, they would slide right down with a gentle tug. So I returned them and bought a Medium. These ... Read Moreare too snug in the leg and the waist. With the velcro tabs all the way loose, essentially disconnected, the pants are too tight. Great quality pant with solid features, just wish they fit me. I will have to return and try another model ski pant.

Bizarre Sizing

I have a pair of Patagonia pants I have used for the past 6 years. I probably have over 300 days of hard skiing on them. They have held up great but are finally getting worn out so I decided to replace them with the Storm Shift. I have a 31" waist and my current Patagonia pant is a medium so that's what I initially ordered. I pulled the s... Read Moreide tabs in as far as I could but the pants were still too loose and wouldn't stay up. So I returned the medium and got a small. The small was way too tight even with the side tabs all the way out. There's a serious sizing problem if I don't fit in one of these sizes. If your waist is 28"-30" the small will work for you. Don't get the medium unless your waist is 33"-35". If you're in the 31"-32" zone, find another pant.

Good level of warmth

Not overloaded with insulation and pairs nicely with long underwear. A little to wide around the waist but the built in Velcro adjustments (not just for kids any more!) worked darn well

March 22, 2023

Durable and wind/waterproof

Fit well, resist wear and tear. Convenient pockets. Goretex works well for me. I did add after-market suspenders and attached them to the belt loops.

This an excellent ski shell

This an excellent ski shell pant. I have skied in a variety of conditions from extremely wet to frigid. These pants will keep you dry and warm with the proper layering. In mild temperatures, 20 degrees and up, a base layer is not necessary as the pants are warm enough. Plus, there is venting if you get too warm. In frigid conditions, 20 to below 0,... Read More the addition of an appropriate base layer makes the pant more than comfortable. I like the regular fit because the additional room allows me to go to a heavier base layer depending on conditions. Great pants and well built.

Great ski pants

Very comfortable and good fit. Would have been happy with a little more insulation but very good the way they are.

March 11, 2023

Feels like home

I strayed from the fold for a bit tried some other brands caught the bib fanboy wave and none of it works like this. Bomber Patagonia pants fit amazing and you can dial them in. Tough as nails but still light enough for tours. Stretchy fabric would be a nice touch but with the fit not necessary.

Great ski pant

Bought this pair of pants for skiing and they have not disappointed. Fit is true to size and comfortable. All Patagonia gear is expensive but I'm happy with the purchase and of course the life time guarantee!

February 23, 2023

Nice but very baggy

I'm 6'-4, 180bs, and these are extremely baggy. If you prefer the park/freestyle look maybe you'll like them but I prefer a snugger snowpant and these were way too baggy.

February 6, 2023


Haven't skied on these yet, and may return. Medium was snug for layering. Large is kinda baggy. With bit more waist adjustment the medium would have been perfect. I like a trimmer fit, and don't care for the baggy look.

February 3, 2023

Needs improvement.

Dear Patagonia, I love the the design. Ive been using your clothing equipment for many many years. From surfing, fly fishing, skiing etc. Ive tried to find the right ski pants for weeks now. Im not a snow boarder and dont like extra wasted material. Cant stand baggy! Please let me come help your team design the perfect affordable pants for all arou... Read Morend mountain performance and lifestyle. Im really bummed i have to send back these pants and continue my search for the right fit with the basic features most skiers are looking for.

Storm shift pant

Nice gore-Tex pant. Good quality. I like the pockets and belt loops.I have used them 10 days so far this season . 34 waist I am wearing L, I like a relaxed fit.

January 5, 2023

odd sizing

Ordered a medium and a large. Medium was super tight and the large was way too big. Loved the material, weight, features, etc. but sizing did not work for me.

December 26, 2022

Awesome pant but curiously too big

In contrast to a couple other reviewers who said they needed to size up, I am returning my size Large because these pants are too loose and baggy on my 34" waist. (6'0", 178lbs) I like the material and features, just wish they were a bit snugger.

Nice Fit

Really like these ski pants. I am 6'0" and it has always been difficult to find pants that are long enough. These fit perfectly! Was a bit concerned since they are not insulated, but gives me the flexibility to layer efficiently.

December 23, 2022

Great snow pant

These are great but run a little small so go up a size. I have a 34-36 waist but the large was too tight and the XL is perfect.

December 20, 2022

Runs Small

Runs small in waist and backside... I am a 34" inch waist so I bought a medium. The sizing guide is not super helpful. It states a medium is 33, and large is 36. What about the sizes in between those? Having a range listed would be better.

Response from Patagonia
January 3, 2023

Hi Mac, thank you for sharing your experience with these Ski/Snowboard Pants. We're sorry the Medium didn't work for you, and glad to see you got set up with a size that will work better for you. We will pass along your feedback about the sizing information.

December 9, 2022

Just what I wanted

Perfect for resort skiing. Goretex keeps out the wind and the wet. Elastic/velcro waist adjustment plus belt loops make the waist fit easy. My phone needs to stay warm and dry, which it does in the handwarmer pockets. The Regular length and snow cuffs provide excellent compatibility with alpine ski boots.

New ski pants for '23

Haven't spent any days on the hill yet. Had to go up a size from usual in these pants. Usually wear a L in Patagonia pants but had to go to XL to get them to fit. The L fit well everywhere except the waist. The Xl fits the waist but is a bit baggy on me through everything else. They seem like great pants and they're Gore-Tex so I know how...
