Rated 3 out of 5 by from cheap, but did the trick! This was my first time snowboarding, but these pants were great. These pants kept me warm, especially after my numerous falls. I'm usually a 32x30 so I default to medium to give myself some room, but after I tried the M in store, I ended up buying the S. Even with under armour underneath, these pants were still bigger than you would expect. If you choose to buy these pants, I recommend trying them on in store before your purchase because they are much longer and wider than other pants from competitor brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two thumbs up Bought these for the boyfriend for the occasional cold-weather activity (we live in Phoenix so we don't do snow that often). Wore them out once snowboarding and they were great! Just the right amount of insulation, handy features (pockets, zippers, etc). There is some durable material at the bottom to reinforce the pants, seems like they will last a long time. He is excited to get back in the snow with these bad boys soon! Also a note on sizing, my boyfriend wears a 32/32, which is usually a medium, but I got him the small ones based on the Columbia sizing chart. They fit fine, he could probably have also worn the medium size, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Ski Pant for the Price I bought these pants at the last minute before a ski trip to Sun Valley, ID and was pleasantly surprised by their performance. I had plenty of flexibility to get in a wide stance and lean into the mountain, and I never overheated. The length was fine while in my ski boots, but they were definitely too long to wear casually over sneakers at the bar afterwards. The waist fit well, though. I've only gotten a couple days on the hill with them so far, so I can't speak to their durability, but so far so good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK quality, but longer than advertised The quality is about what you'd expect for pants at this price. They seem like they'd work well for a day's skiing at a tame resort, but I wouldn't trust their construction farther than that. For the price, that's acceptable. The disappointing thing that means I'll be returning these pants is that they are at least 4" longer than advertised. A 32" inseam would be a little long for me, but I can live with that. I can't live with pants that are several inches past my toes, and that I measured as 36".

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Winter Hiking! I use these for winter hikes with our Husky. He loves the cold and these help me get him his daily exercise. They've worked well with a heavy weight base layer or a pair of fleece active pants beneath them. I've spent 1+ hour(s) out in the MN cold without issues of feeling cold. Pretty good since they're not insulated!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pants! Great pants for the price. Great features like built in gators and multiple closures. The only problem is that the small zippers on the pockets are difficult to operate with gloves on. Highly recommended!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but not waterproof Great pants for warmer days. Just tried them out in wet snow & mist (wet chairlift seats) and they are not waterproof or very water repellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and warm, very adjustable Kept me very comfortable skiing in some negative single digits. The waist adjustment allows for a perfect fit. Good quality all around.

Are there re-reinforcement panels on the inside ankles (for ski edge protection?

Asked by: skisantafe
The internal gaiter of these pants does add an extra layer of durable protection.

I'm looking for non-insulated ski pants for spring skiing. Are these insulated? Really just looking for a shell.
