Truly a Bomb proof pant
I have had my pair now since 2007. I was a ski instructor in Taos Ski Valley NM and I could ski tree with branches slapping up against them as I went by too close to the tree, I could spend hours on my knees helping with on slope ski problems, I could tackle the deepest of powder days (waist deep) and carry everything I needed "good job snacks", (a few rolls of Sarburst candy for that immediate need for a quick ski wax job of the student's skis on the slope), cell phone, wallet, ski map, Radio, extra hat, glove liners, baclava, ... They look like new, they are extremely warm (thank goodness for the crotch vents, I could get by with the lightest of long johns or just boxers on the coldest windiest day and was never cold. The only problem I had was remembering which of the pockets I put everything in.
The Only downside, I am 6'2" inseam 34"...these pants are too short and I modified them by hiring a seamstress to add material to the bottoms so that they would not come up over my ski boots when skiing the steeps or the bumps. They need to be made with longer inseams.
Highly recommend these pants to those that want to carry it all and want to be comfortable and have a great day skiing all at the same time...And it helps if you are short...
