Black Diamond Zone Pant review. OnTheSnow reviewed this pant as part of its men's 2015/2016 Pants Buyers' Guide.


Favorite Features: The addition of lower-leg vents to the lengthy upper vents delivered plenty of airflow to this well insulated pant. We appreciated the generous cargo style pockets, which were easily accessed while wearing gloves.

Fit: The medium (U.S. M) tested fit snug on someone who normally wears a large, while the articulated knees offered good range of motion.


Manufacturer Description: Our warmest waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® ski pants, the Zone Pants feature PrimaLoft® Silver insulation to offer maximum protection on the coldest and wettest days of the season.
