The insulation in these pants is far too good for skiing in July. But it’d be perfect for January. After hiking all morning while lapping a jump in Copper’s summer terrain park, my legs were sweating and I found myself wanting more ventilation than the short inner-thigh zippers were providing. However, as long as the temperatures are even close to freezing, these would be my go-to pants—the fit is comfortable (especially when you remove the suspenders), the Gore-Tex outer fabric repels water, and they have lots of pockets. (Seven, all with zippers.) The low-profile cargo pockets are big enough to fit a small handheld video camera so you can shoot on the hill without having to ski with a backpack. One of the biggest issues with any pair of ski pants is that the cuffs get shredded on the inside from ski edges. The strategically placed patches of rip-stop fabric should prevent this from happening. I ended the day with a sweaty, smelly pair of pants in the back of my car, but I know in the winter I would appreciate how warm they are—it’s surprisingly rare to find high-performance ski pants that are insulated.
MSRP: $300. For more information about these pants, visit ScottUSA.com.
