Ski pants are not cheap. Large size ski pants for women are especially not cheap, when you can find them. By retail store standards, theses would just be average quality pants, probably in the $50-$100 dollar range, if you could find them in XL or XXL. But at the O price of ***, they are an outstanding value. Design and construction seems more than adequate, and my wife reports that in her one time out in them so far, they were comfortable, and kept her warm and dry. That plus quick shipping, can't ask for more.
I purchased these for warmth and water resistance for winter outdoor activities. I'm 5'4" and usually size 14 and ordered the XL. These fit adequately, there is more room in the tummy and at the leg than I need, but it makes it great for pulling over whatever pants I happen to have on. Have used outside on at least three occasions now, and have been pleased with wind and cold resistance. I have not tried these with contact winter activities - snow sports, etc. so I can't attest to the water resistance. These have velcro and reinforcement inside the ankle to keep snow out and keep from excessive wear from boots (this also means the extra length is not really a big issue).
