I wore this once and the zipper became stuck and then busted completely. The snaps on the shoulder straps did not stay snapped. I was considering tacking them myself but then the zipper broke and it suddenly felt pointless. I purchased the correct size so fit wasn't the issue. I did love the leg vents and the ability to adjust the length of the leg with a Velcro option. I had such high hopes. Maybe after a break from them I will reevaluate fixing this investment!
I'm not a skier. I bought these for dog-walking because I was tired of freezing all the time during this horrible winter. ( i live in Michigan. We had a record amount of snow and it was extremely cold.). These are great! They are very well made. heavy with lots of zippers and velcro. I would suggest buying your normal size. The straps are adjustable. The legs have two layers at the bottom, an inside one to tuck into your boots, and then a layer that goes over your boots to keep the snow out. My husband has an expensive pair of bibs (for dog walking and snow shoveling) and he was very skeptical about my Overstock purchase. But when they came he was impressed. They are as well-made as his expensive ones, and as heavy and warm. I expect to have these forever!
This was my second attempt at ordering snow pants. Although I ordered 2 sizes up from what I wear, they still didn't give me enough room in the hip area :( I did like the adjustable straps.I am short, only 5 foot, and generally all bottoms are too long for me. Had they fit they would have been great. not too long . Instead, I have them to my husband. so at least he has something to wear on our ski trip!
