*Disclaimer I am snowboarding in Southern California, today was my first day back in two years. It was my first time wearing these and the temps were about 45 degrees.Size: I purchased a Small Short size for myself. I am 5’1 and about 115lbs. The small was a perfect fit, I usually were a size 4, and these were so comfortable to move in. However, the short might be a little too short? I like my pants longer look wise. And they would kinda come up a little when I would sit down. But nothing crazy.Oh and the straps are super stretchy so that’s nice.Warmth:As mentioned before this was my first time wearing them and it only reached to about 45 today. The shade felt colder. I wore light thermals underneath (because I always do) and my legs were so comfortable. Not once did my bottom half feel cold. Even sitting in the snow was comfortable.Style:There are only two pockets on these which is kind of annoying, but if you or a friend has a backpack it’s fine.There are no vents. Which was a bummer to me, but I didn’t really feel like I needed them.I do not have a waist but these definitely make me look a bit curvy from the front. But the back side looks flat.Again I kinda like a little bit longer for my pants but they do look nice standing up.Comfort:Overall I love these. Moving in them is so comfortable. Bending over, twisting, jumping, they just felt so comfortable.

I ordered a size up & height up as I’m between 5’8″ and 5’9″ – Purchased color black, size 12/14 in TALLI don’t usually write reviews but finding a pair of snow pants that fit is impossible and I always check size references in reviews and so hopefully this helps someone else out!I’m around 165lbs-170lbs & usually a size 10 or Large in tops and bottoms, 31″ inseam, large hips/booty and 36DD with a narrow waist – makes it impossible to find snow pants that fit. I was concerned with the bib style that it would be too tight around my chest, but I found that with the adjustable straps, I can get it to fit just right. I think if you’re more pear shaped, these would fit just fine as you can adjust the straps a lot if you need it tighter around the chest.I got a pair that was $150 last year off of REI and they did not fit so I ended up having to return them and struggled to find a pair in time for the winter season. Trying on snow pants in person seems almost harder when you don’t have the measurements in front of you. After doing some research for snow pants for curvy/plus size figures, I finally found these and they’re fantastic. They are the comfiest pair I’ve found yet and seem plenty insulating. I haven’t owned bib styled snow pants since I was a kid so I wasn’t sure what the fit would feel like. But they don’t ride up too bad and with the adjustable straps can fit tighter or looser around the crotch area. I’m a little over 5’8″ so snow pants are often too short on me as well. I’m so glad I ordered the tall size. While they’re a bit long, when they go over boots they’ll be perfect and I won’t get snow in my ankles.I actually didn’t want to take these off right away, they feel like a onesie with crunchier sounding fabric. And they’re fairly flattering as far as snow pants go when the straps are properly adjusted.MN winters are no joke so these are going to come in handy. I’m probably mainly going to use them for snowboarding/skiing, but with how easy and comfortable these are, I may wear them on really cold hikes/walks too. I definitely would still wear your warm layers underneath. I haven’t tested out the waterproof/resistant-quality yet, so we’ll see. In November/February/March it can be hard to avoid getting damp from the melting snow, so I’ll try to follow up after giving these a go.Aside from the TBD about water-proofing and being a little annoyed that the tall size was $10 more expensive, for such an affordable pair I’m so far really impressed.

I typically do not leave reviews. I ordered my bib in July in anticipation of a December snow trip. I have terrible circulation in my feet and legs and I am always cold. These things saved my life. I’m 5’0 and 150 lbs I didn’t even notice there was a short option but glad I went with the standard. When you sit the legs come up just a little, but they were not to long where they rubbed on the ground. They fit perfectly and kept me so warm. First time skiing and I spent a lot of time on the ground and never were my legs cold. Second day we rented snowmobiles and we were moving fast, it was snowing pretty hard and it was 2° and I never felt cold. I would highly recommend these. The zipper on the end of the pants didn’t really seem so necessary till I saw how much my husband struggled getting his over his boots, so something I didn’t even consider being a huge plus actually was. If your shopping around, stop now and order these!
