If you are like me and lose fifteen chapsticks per season, then you are going to love the zippered pockets as much as I do.

So I was in the middle of a winter hike when I realized that a layer of thick sport spandex and a layer of running pants were not cutting it for trekking through the cold snow. As soon as I got home, I jumped on Amazon and I started looking for a light weight, moderately insulated, water resistant snow pant. These snow pants had the best reviews and price for a light weight sport snow pant with moderate insulation.
I am between a size 16 and 18 - I ordered a 2X and I could have gotten away with a 1X. Luckily I have been wearing these snow pants with layers underneath and so the extra room has not been a huge issue.
As far as features go, there are many. The pants have a zipper at the ankle to help the leg fit over boots and there is an elastic layer underneath to keep snow from creeping up and into the ankle. At the waist there are loopholes for a belt, a grommit for a caribeener, elastic at the side hips to further tighten or loosen the waist and a three-part clasp system that starts with a zipper, then two snaps reinforced by velcro. The pockets are lined with a really warm gray fleece and have zippers. If you are like me and lose fifteen chapsticks per season, then you are going to love the zippered pockets as much as I do.
I wore these a few weekends ago to shovel out a driveway by hand in zero degree weather in New Hampshire. I found that the pants stayed dry and warm and were not way too hot considering my exertion levels. All around I am really happy with these and I am looking forward to seeing how they perform on snowshoe expeditions. Thanks for the great product!
