It has taken me forever to find a set of ski pants that fit. With my huge 5'5" stature you can imagine it's super easy to find well fitting pants...yeah, not really. I ordered the small short and I can say they fit perfect, easy through the thigh but short enough to not walk on. Besides the length the dry q is just plain awesome. I have actually sweated through a set of pants so bad before that I broke my cell phone! This technology works so well I rarely feel hot and if I do there are vent zips to take care of the heat in an instant. All in all I can say is; signed, sealed, (and in moosejaw terminology), delivered with a kiss!
