Great value - warm, effective padding, and (mostly) waterproof.
on March 6, 2015
Fit great, and kept me warm on a very cold day (-25 F with windchill). I hadn't been skiing in a long time, so on my first day, I took a lot of tumbles, and didn't have any bruises or soreness - it is very effective padding. After taking all those tumbles, at the end of the day when I took them off, the pants I was wearing underneath had some dampness around the knees, so they must not be entirely waterproof. However, it was only a little bit of dampness, and it didn't make me feel cold or wet during use. For someone who doesn't fall as much as I did, I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem at all.
One last minor problem - the velcro that holds the pockets closed didn't come attached very well. One partially ripped after a relatively minor fall. So I wouldn't put anything important in the pockets (although that probably should be common sense anyway).
Overall, great ski pants, I would recommend to anyone looking to get something that will do the trick for a decent price.
