To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
True to size! Medium (regular length) fits waist 32-34 and length is compatible for those that wear jeans size 30-32 in length. I was able to put them on over the straight fit jeans that are 33w and was able to buckle both buttons and zipper which lead me to conclusion that with the sweat pants instead of jeans they would be very comfortable without any issues with the flexibility. They are purposly made roomier for the baselayer compatibility since these do not have a fleece lining like some other snow pants. They do have the reflective omni-heat layer and they should be sufficiently warm when paired with some sort of a baselayer. Some reviews on the internet mentioned that they're bell bottoms but IMO they aren't. The whole structure of the pants is taylored not to be a slim fit but a regular fit. They are made to accommodate different styles of the ski/snowboard boots hence wide leg openings. Very good ski pants at discouned price.
Almost bought these from a sporting store for full $120 price until I saw on Amazon. Great snowpants that offer pretty much anything that you'd want. Comfort, ventilation, water resistance, and good quality. Been using them for a few weeks now when snowboarding and they hold up great. Highly recommend over cheaper gear.
For the price, these are great ski pants with lots of pockets and having belt loops is a major plus. My old pair of Columbia ski pants I've had for 13+ yrs, did not have those so they were a little loose. I used to have to wear suspenders to keep them up. So go get yourself a pair of nylon web belts from Amazon and it works fantastic. I used these for the first time last week, it was -1F at the main ski lodge when I got there in Idaho. I was plenty warm the whole day using these ski pants and a mid-weight pair of long johns.
I am a 34 waist and the Medium size is really pushing it but I am stuck with them since I leave tomorrow. If you are a 34 waist I would highly recommend a large. Overall good for the price though they just run small.
I just got back from a ski trip in Montana. Temps were steady around 5-10 degrees the entire time we were skiing. These pants did their job in keeping me dry and warm. I only wore a base layer and ski socks underneath them and they were plenty warm. Glad I purchased these instead of something more expensive.
I only have worn these pants one time. I started out the morning in jeans, but the temperature was in the 20's so I put the Columbia Ridge pants on and immediately could tell they made a difference in how cold my legs felt. I wasn't wearing a base layer, and felt comfortable enough. I like the cargo pockets. All in all totally satisfied with these pants.
