For the price these can't be faulted. Just back from a week skiing in them and they stood up to the cold and damp just fine. Comfortable and looked good. Lack of belt loops meant I couldn't clip my jacket snow 'skirt' to them so when I fell in a big pile of powder it got everywhere. Velcro on waist allows adjustment but also attracts fluff so over time I expect they will look a bit grubby. However for the price you could just replace tge, regularly and still be quids in.
It wasn't particularly cold or wet last week so I can't say if they would stand up to harsher conditions.
Also if skiing late season there are no ventilation zips.
Price, warmth, waterproof, look good
No belt loops, Velcro attracts fluff
Totally recommend these trousers, amazing price, very comfortable and great service at store.
Fit, price and style
