FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Simplistic in nature, these pants excel at that design. Stretch fabric and PrimaLoft insulation offer a strong combination for moderate conditions and all-around comfort. The insulation is not excessive, but it’s enough that you could easily get by with just a base layer and these pants.

FAVORITE FEATURES: A long list of features is not what will ultimately lead you to these pants. Instead, they’re simply reliable and comfortable enough to get most skiers though average winter conditions. There are two air vents, though on the small side and on the interior of the legs. Ultimately, these pants find a sweet spot between heavy insulated material and minimalist shell pants.

MANUFACTURER DESCRIPTION: Our legendary insulated ski pants are better with extra comfort, functionality and a sober design. Keep your legs ready for the slopes or pushing through powder with these PrimaLoft insulated ski pants. The waterproof, highly-breathable 2-way stretch Helly Tech Professional 2L fabric will not hold you back; it will make sure you are dry, warm and comfortable from the first groomed slope to the last powder. Mechanical venting keeps you dry, warm or cool depending on the conditions and activity.
