Not exactly the most incredible when it comes to both, as some have way more waterproofing powers.
They work in any snow condition nonetheles.. they work for me in park and pow, and even Anthony Bornowski wore them while skiing really deep pow in Ski Porn. So, they are obviously good pants.
They come with a recco avalanche reflector, so thats always good if you are in an av danger zone...
So simple, so cool.
They have inward bent pockets, like all sessions pants do, so nothing can really fall out... and they are deep.. so everything stays in there. They have two thigh pockets, one on each pantleg, for storing bigger stuff. There is a small stash pocket on the left side at the bottom.. probably for storing personal essentials for personal use...
There is a zippable vent in the crotch area, because we all know that is where the most sweat and shit comes... you need to air that area out sometimes if you dont want your crotch to reek lol. It also is about the best place on your pant to open up if its hot out... such as the day I went up in Early February, where it was somewhere around 55 degrees and bluebird.. and I was sweating untill I opened it and then I started to get.. maybe a bit too cold... its a good little vent I must say lol.
The snow camo look is soo sick and such a cool Idea. They took brown and tan sessions logos, and patched and stenciled them together to make this snow camo kind of look.. its pretty sweet looking...
You can get them in solid colors too.. but I like this version better..
140 bucks is what they cost me. Not too bad for some sick ass pants that do everything you want... and will hopefully last forever lol.
I think the value was about right... not too low or high.. just about what you think they would cost...
I am a skinny bastard, so having these in a medium size is almost too big. They come with waist adjusters, that can adjust the waist to be smaller, but it doesnt work for me very well, so I wear a belt and that takes care of the problem.
Around the knees and legs, there is no chaffing at all, and they fit about as well as your favorite, worn out PJ's you wear every night to bed... they are that comfy.
They have held up so far... I like them.. they are warm, yet they breathe... they wont tear, unelss of course you pull what I did with my previous sessions pants, and your freshly edged skis somehow slash the side of your pants... it was a bummer, but that would happen to anything... just glad it wasnt my skin... yikes...
