This is one of the first purchases from decathlon. Made the mistake, depended too much on the website rather than sales team. For extreme cold Chadar, thanks to the warmth felt it was a good product. But for any intensive or moderate treks this should be left in the wardrobe. I am not a Skier I guess it is only good for Skiing.
Pros: Warmth, Water proof, Good material, Gaiters... all good for Skiing
Cons: Bulky & Heavy, Not breathable will result in too much sweat inside. For a long time light the entire outer layer was soaked in water. Not good for multiple days.
Product is good, but I'm dissatisfied with the selection as it doesn't meet my basic needs.
I used these pants on a Winter Bike Ride trip as alternative of proper riding pants. At temperatures around 5°C with speed of 90 Kmph with 0 visibility fog conditions, These pants stood like a boss between my legs and outside weather. They survived the chilling wind strike and fog condensing like a carved cake. I littrely forgot them and later realize that they were there whole time keeping my legs warm. They made their presence once you are on your feet because they are wide and proper overpants. They look little odd because not a lot of people are familiar with ski pants here.
I've wanted a new ski outfit for a while but some are a bit loud and wanted something a bit tamer that also matched my other accessories.
These trousers are well made, look good and really warm.
When you're fastened up they feel secure
At HK$175, this ski pants is a stunning steal. Comfortable and robust, and completely waterproof. Although it is not breathable at all, it said so in the product description.
A very good buy for a beginner. The Pro may look somewhere else for smarter design and colours.
Robust, waterproof, warm, lightweight
Great pants which keep you nice and warm in -25 degrees. I used them on my trek on the Zanskar frozen river and these pants kept me nice and comfortable for over 8 days and nights.
Good fit, waterproof and temperature resistant
Better waist tightening ability
brought two pairs, small and large. small mans, was snug on me, I;m a female size 10 uk, I recommend going up a size. husband is a 36 waist and had a size large which were snug also. other wise nice trousers would recommend. delivered quicker than advertised.
kept us warm,
smaller than expected
If you like very sweaty undercrackers these are just for you.
They are not breathable
Hi Mr Park,
Thanks for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that the First Heat Ski trousers didn't fulfil your expectations.
The First Heat trousers are our first price in the range and they have been designed to be warm and waterproof. Indeed they are not breathable which means that if you have an intense effort the humidity will take longer to evacuate.
Following your feedback and the ones from other customers we are currently working on a new pair of first price ski trousers which should include a breathable membrane too.
If you are not happy with the Ski Trousers I invite you to go to your closest Decathlon store at the start of next season to get an exchange.
