Perfect fit, not too warm.
I was initially worried that these insulated pants would be too warm, but they've consistently been great for most (resort) skiing conditions. I wear it with a thin baselayer for most 25-35-degree days and they keep me toasty without getting overheated. The vent zips on the inner thighs help too! My only wish: that it had a back zippered pocke... Read Moret to hold a small credit card/ID. Love the bright yellow color but it does take on a lot of dirt, so you have to just roll with that. I'm a 27-inch waist (for jeans) and these fit perfectly with room to cinch if needed.
Not for Every Body
Full Pant Fit Review: Fit for this pant entirely depends on body type. There is a light insulation so light to no base layer if Spring skiing but will need base layer for Colder days. If you are athletic curvy such as myself the fit will work ONLY if you are able to size up. Curvy Size 12, the XL will work perfectly for you. Size 14 Curvy - you c... Read Morean pull the XL pants up but a comfortable fit depends on your butt. If you are slim and straight up/down w/ no curve these pants may work. FYI there is NO Stretch. If you have a butt (round not wide) they will not. Size 16 these are not the pants for you. Super disappointed that brands still dont get athletic bodies can be curvy as well. There is a large untapped market for athletic gear that can fit a good curvy body. Opportunity for improvement by the brand here make a different cut of pant and jacket that fits a broader group of women who have curves ;) if you do this I can be a client for life- now I cant be as life has happened to my body .lol. and Im sized out of your brand. Im a size 14 5'9 built like Serena Williams, have been a competitive athlete my whole life.

I have used these pants several times hiking in low snowy conditions and they kept me warm, complete wind resistant, and no water leaked through. However, I wish they had a build in pull string round the ankle because I hiked 10+ miles in 3 ft of snow and the snow made its way to the underneath the pants and to the top of my boots. No snow actually... Read More was on my skin. But, had there been a string to pull it tight, this would have lessened the snow effect. It was below 0 with wind, and I had a small base layer and these pants, knee down was submerged in snow, and they kept me warm the entire time. I needed to get a size smaller, because I thought I would need a thick layer underneath so I sized up. However, they keep you warm enough that you won't need a thick underlayer. Mine are too big and I may be stuck with them since Ive already warn them. Dont size up, because you won't need too much layers under them.
Great quality, bad fit
The quality of these pants is unsurprisingly amazing, but they are low cut, too slim in the hips, and too wide in the waist! I always have this issue with Patagonia clothes, it's like they're designed for men or extremely athletic women. Which is fine, but I wish there were some options for those of us who have a little more curve. Even i... Read Moref my hips weren't wide, I think snow pants should come with a higher waist to keep you warm and keep snow out. It's too bad because these are some of the nicest ski pants out there, but they're just not for me.
Inner Thigh Zippers are Awkward
I seem to be between a Medium and Large in Patagonia sizing, the Large would be swimming and the Medium slimmer than I prefer. Still, I kept the pants and skied half a season in them. I wish the waist was a bit higher, no one likes snow down their back. They work well overall, but the main problem I have with them is the inner thigh zippers are inc... Read Moreredibly awkward to zip open or closed while wearing gloves or mittens. You can't do a quick zip while in motion because they're between your legs. Friends and onlookers notice when you're pawing at your own inner thigh trying to zip a zip. Too late to return, I'll probably sell them and try something else.
Hey! We are sorry to hear that these didn't work for you. And we definitely don't want you to worry about pawing at zippers while on the slopes. All our products are backed by our Ironclad Guarantee so it's not too late to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) them.

fashionable and functional
I was hoping for a tall size in these snow pants because usually the best we tall girls can hope for is solid black. However, if i wear them low on my hips, i can probably get away with it. They were too cute to pass up. I just wish that tall sizes were offered in all styles - one can hope :)
Love the thigh zippers in case I overheat!
I was hesitant to buy an ivory color ski pant but this one looks great. The fit is fine and they seem quite warm. I actually bought them for long winter COVID walks, not skiing. I'm super glad they have inner thigh zippers in case I get too warm. They are a bit too long but only because I am 5'2" and not wearing them with ski boots. ... Read MoreLooking forward to wearing them.
It's a well made garment. My only dislike is that the waist is lower than I would feel comfortable with when doing sports activities. I had purchased size M initially, but had to exchange it for S. I'm 5'10", 130lb wearing 6/M on a regular basis, but I find that in Patagonia I'm S.
I have been trying (and failing) for months to find a pair of snow pants that fit my athletic thighs and significantly smaller waist, all while being not too long. I ordered both XS and S because I have been having such a hard time finding a good fit. I was ecstatic to discover that both pants fit to the point that I could wear them skiing/snowboar... Read Moreding! The XS are tighter on my thighs/crotch but a perfect length and the S are a better fit on my thighs but a bit bigger on the waist. The adjustable waistband is a lifesaver and ultimately I think Ill keep the S. The length on the S isnt not too long which is hard to find at 53. Thank you Patagonia!!
Too small or too big
I wanted to love these ski pants. They seem to be of a good quality. My problem is with sizing. I typically wear a size 10-12 (kind of somewhere in between). I ordered 2 pairs - one in medium and one in large because I wasnt sure which would fit best. Well neither! The medium I could barely zip up or snap and I was swimming in the large. I had to ... Read Morekeep looking at the sizes because I couldnt believe they were labeled correctly. Not sure why there is such a size discrepancy between the medium and the large. Sadly both have to be returned.
Hi Annie! We're sorry to hear the fit didn't work out. You are welcome to return it if you were looking to do so, but haven't already. We're also always happy to email you any item's measurements chart so you can feel more confident about your next purchase.
I had a surprisingly hard time finding a pair of snow pants that fit! I tried a few other brands first, but couldn't button smalls and mediums wouldn't stay up. For this reason, the fact that these pants have an adjustable waist caught my eye - but the small fits me so perfectly I haven't needed to use it! The fabric is also really s...

Yes Patagonia! These pants are the best. Thank you for making them to fit a curvier figure.

These pants are great, they seem to have people in mind that have more of a booty, hips, and thighs.

Great Ski Pant
This is my second pair of the snowbelle insulated pants. I like the adjustable strap on the waistband, they are warm but not too warm and have zippers to cool down when needed. They fit easily over ski boots and are a flattering fit. The color is much nicer than I anticipated it appears pink online but is more of a berry color in person.
I ordered these online and excepted the sizing might be off. I put them on and sure enough the waist was way too big. But they have these handy dandy velcro straps inside that tighten them to your desired fit. Perfect! Now I don't have to worry about snow getting into that gap in the back of my pants.

I'm new to Patagonia and purchased multiple items for my first ski trip. Using their size charts I came up with a size large for the Snowbelle pants. They were enormous. At least 4 inches too large in the waist area. Using the velcro pull would have looked ridiculous. Perhaps on one or two inches it would be okay. Note, the online pictures mak... Read Morees it look like the velcro is on the outside. It's not. It's on the inside of the waistband. So, I order a medium. That fits much better, but I have only maybe an inch of room to spare. Maybe Patagonia should sit down with their cost accountants, engineers and marketing team to see if switching to a numerical sizing would make more sense than small, med, large, etc. I probably am a size 10. Perhaps a 12 if i wanted some wiggle room. I have a feeling a numerical sizing system would get me much closer to what I want over small, med, large which has a broader size range. FYI I am 5'4" and 135 pounds.

Seem like a great purchase!
My wife isn't much of a winter person so I've slowly been buying her warmer gear to help motivate her to embrace the cold.

It's pretty cold and wet a lot of the year where I live in Alaska. I love my Snowbelle insulated jacket because it does a great job of keeping me both warm and dry, so I just bought the pants in Cargo Green!

Needs More Pockets
Warm and waterproof, nice adjustable belt inside. But seriously lacking pockets! Only 2, no back pockets. So on a warm day riding without a coat, you gotta cram keys, phone, pass, debit card and ID into 2 small pockets and then try not to lose one of the above when opening them.
exactly what I was looking for
These pants have been great so far! I've had them for a little over a month now and have worn them out in the snow lots, skiing at the resort, touring, and even doing work in the snow. They feel really lightweight but I've yet to feel cold in them either. And on these late spring days, the vents on the inner thigh are awesome.
Great for a Basic Ski Pant
I wouldn't wear these mountaineering or backcountry skiing, but for a day on lifts these are great. I LOVE the fit of these. My other ski pants (same size) are always tighter and I love how these give you some room to breathe / eat. The length is great and they are warm.
Perfect on a VERY cold Vermont day
I just took these out on the mountain for the first time and they were perfect. It was only about 8 degrees at the top of the hill, but I never once felt the chill with only one piece of base layering underneath. I’m 6’1” and about 190lbs and ordered a XL.

Flattering, basic, well made snow pants
These are so much more flattering than so many other snow pants I tried on (and I tried a lot on this season!), and knowing they are well made by a responsible company makes them even better.

Gorgeous pants, beautifully made as are all of my Patagonia items. However, the sizing on these pants ran pretty large for me.

These ski pants are awesome! For reference, I am 5'3 and weight 125 lbs. I bought the size small so that I could wear a layer under.

Comfortable & Fun Ski Pants
These fit great and I love the added layer of warmth. Just slipping them on they feel comfortable. Plus it is so tough to find ski pants with a design on them!

Flattering Fit; Serious Quality
I am so happy to have found a reasonably priced ski pant that fits my petite frame without sacrificing performance and durability.

The lightweight insulation (and the thigh vents) makes them comfortable on warm days and for hiking,but there is room for layering on the colder days. These are the most flattering ski pants I have ever owned. I am 5'0 and 110 pounds. I ordered the XS short inseam and it is the perfect length. The fit in the thighs and butt is loose enough that I do not feel restricted,but tight enough that I do not feel like I'm lost in layers of clothing. I also really like the adjustable waist because I can fit them perfectly to my body without a belt. I highly recommend these pants!
