Durable 2-layer polyester Gore-Tex fabric keeps you dry during a heavy snowstorm
I just got these and they feel like great quality and have nice insulation. The sizing is off in my opinion. I am usually in between a size 6-8, but more toward the 8. I am 5.8 and 140pnd. I ordered the medium and they are way too big, long and baggy. My old Salomon skipants are a size 10 and fit perfect with a layer
We are going to Europe in a couple of weeks to do some skiing, etc. and bought these pants. I absolutely love them. I have used them here in Ohio so far and they are so warm. I was outside for over an hour and never felt cold. Also love the side zippers on the thighs for venting if you get too hot! These fit pretty well. I usually wear a size 8 and have a bigger bottom/thighs and I got a medium. If you want to wear a layer under them I definitely could but if you are slimmer then they might be a little baggier on you. I also love the bootcut on these, as they fit perfectly over my boots. These are definitely worth the investment!
