FIRST IMPRESSIONS: These aren’t the thickest insulated pants of the season, but they’re likely enough for most skiers who want something in between a technical shell and the warmest pants on the market. These pants ride high in the back, offering extra protection in deep snow. Obermeyer chose material that is both functional, and comfortable for the exterior and interior of these pants.

FAVORITE FEATURES: Larger air vents line the inner thigh with mesh to protect against incoming snow. They're also reinforced to prevent accidentally ripping the mesh. Inside the right pocket, you’ll find a handy goggle wipe that’s most useful while you’re sitting on the chairlift.

MANUFACTURER DESCRIPTION: A purposeful built ski pant with bombproof reinforcements and motion specific stretch fabrics. Thinsulate 40-gram insulation provides the perfect amount of warmth and the adjustable waist helps dial in an ideal fit. The generous storage pockets are protected by YKK Aquaguard zippers and lined with soft high loft fleece. The Process is tested and built for the big vertical descents and side country hikes.
