If you want to not get wet while skiing...or swimming, buy these pants, and while you're at it buy a Trew jacket too.
I didn't get wet once in these. The most waterproof pants I've owned. At 20/20k/3L these pants just repel water. If I wanted, I could probably seal the waist and leg cuffs, go in a pool, and walk out with my legs being completely dry. They also have a very heavy fabric on the cuffs of the legs that is impossible to rip, no matter how many times you step on it or clip it in to your bindings.
Straight purple. Baller.
Super heavy fabric. Tech as fuck.
I think I got these off of the Clymb for $150.00 which is the deal of a lifetime on $400.00 pants.
The waist on these is huge. I wear a 32 waist in jeans, and these are massive on me, but with the velcro tighteners, I was able to make them fit perfectly around my waist. I'm about 6'2" and the XLs are also very baggy. I probably should have gotten a large, but this size worked out for me.
These are bombproof. Durability is not an issue at all with these.
