I bought these pants for my 14 year old son who is 5'4" and 100 pounds. The quality of the snowboarding pants seemed fine but the fit was terrible. They were barely long enough and would be too short by next winter. Also the adjustable waist was not adjustable enough for his thin frame. These would be fine for a shorter, huskier kid.
Feels too big
Feels too short
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
