FIRST IMPRESSIONS: These are perhaps the warmest pants we tested this year, thanks to abundant insulation. Suspenders help keep these pants securely on your waist, and the fit itself is slim enough through the thighs to assist. Those wanting copious amounts of space for extra layers or mobility may want to consider other manufacturers. However, opening the air vents helps give more flexibility through the legs.

FAVORITE FEATURES: There’s no question that you’ll stay warm wearing these pants, though you may not have much room underneath for any thick layers. Overall, these are streamlined pants that offer solid protection and tons of warmth for the coldest days of the season.

MANUFACTURER DESCRIPTION: The Jager Pant offers exceptional versatility - the type of ski pant you can rely on all season long, through winter’s varying conditions. Eider’s proprietary Defender membrane repels moisture while maintaining a high degree of breathability, and the stretch face fabric provides freedom to move comfortably. Lightly insulated, the Jager will keep you warm even on frigid days, while the side vents with mesh lining allow for airflow when needed. Pre-formed knees and a moderately relaxed cut give the option to comfortably layer, and the raised back with soft, light fleece lining provides extra coverage to keep the snow out. The Jager Pant is truly the all-you-need ski pant.
