Rated 5 out of 5 by AWESOME SAUCE in a snow pant I wore these suckers ALL over Iceland, hiking glaciers, skiing and just keeping warm under the layers. I couldn't recommend these pants more. I love the color, the adjustability and the overall appearance of the pant. August 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Warm and Functional, but needs more pockets I bought these for a trip to CO. They were a little snug, but I managed. I do wish they had more pockets in the front or cargo pockets on the side. They did keep me warm and dry, and I will use them many times in the future. January 29, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Short-Waisted in Plus Size Loved the quality and the product but the crotch to waist measurement is too short on these to be comfortable for skiing and sitting in the snow as intended. Unfortunately I have to return them. Love that Columbia has plus sizes but this is not the right cut for a plus size. January 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by I am short and round... I went up a size in these for a little extra wiggle room and layering. I don't normally wear 3X but found that after trying on the 2x which fit, that I wanted a little more room. I am 5'1" and approx 200lbs so they are a little long, but a non-issue with winter boots. These fit perfect for me. I also used suspenders with these to hold them up for snowshoeing and general winter snow removal. January 24, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by bonne qualite j'aime bcp mon pantalon de neige j'avais deja le manteau columbia j'ai completer mon ensemble pour l'hiver la qualite est impecable cependant le seul hic c'est le bas de la jambe qui est tres large , difficile d'avoir un pantalon de neige ajuster dans les taille + , je suis sur que vous pourriez en creer un qui nous ferait pas sentir etre un bonhomme michelin !!! j'ai corriger moi meme en fesant un couture pour amincir le bas de jambe .

Rated 5 out of 5 by christmas gift My daughter picked these out and I bought them for Christmas. She snowboards and found them to be extremely comfortable. January 5, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 3rd times a charm I started out ordering the XL and they did not go around my waist even with the velcro all the way out. Then tried a 1X and they were tight in the legs, was afraid if I sat down they might split out the seams. Then I ordered the 2XL and they are big in the waist, but with a seamstress doing some alterations, they will be good. They will fit over leggings no problem. Just sorry they don't have a more adjustable waist with maybe some elastic. January 2, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed - weird fit First off let me describe my body type. I'm a apple/ athletic fit - no defined waist, narrow hips, flat butt and muscular legs. I usually wear an 18 or 20 in Columbia. When I try on skinny jeans that fit my waist the thigh & upper leg area are baggy - to give you an idea. Secondly let me note that this is my 4th pair of Columbia ski/snowboard pants. I currently have 2 older pair that I wear for snowboarding. Both are a size 2x - same as the size I recently purchased. Here's the differences: 1- No side vent- my other 2 older pair have side vents. This pair doesn't have them. :( 2- The waist is tightish even with the interior tabs at their loosest. The new pair also dig into my waist when I bend over but leave a HUGE gap in the back. The older pairs I have to have the tabs pulled as tight as possible and sometimes wear a belt. They are also completely comfortable and don't restrict my movement. 3- It fits snug in the upper legs. They are fine when I'm standing but the moment I move and especially if I squat or bend over it gets tight. 4- The Leg Gaiter- My 2 older pair on the inside leg gaiter have velcro and then elastic & snap at the bottom. These just have extra fabric. 5- My 2 older pair are boring white and grey. The new one is a pretty plum color. 6- I'm 5'4" wish your ski/ snowboard pants came in different lengths. ALL of my Columbia pants are too long. I haven't tested these in the snow yet but.... I'm concerned about the waist cutting off circulation when bending over to lock in to my snowboard, I'm not sure how the new gaiter setup is going to work. I tried the pants on with my snowboard boots and while they fit it came unsnapped really easy because the elastic was sewn so tight. I have a feeling the snap will come unsnapped on it's own. With the legs being tightish I could see it being annoying having to pull the pant up so that I have room in my upper legs to move. I'm only recommending this product because Columbia is one of the only companies that carries plus size ski/snowboard pants. Lastly a plea to Columbia - Please Please Please make Soft Shell Ski/Snowboard pants!!! The fit of these pants might work better for me if it was made of the more forgiving soft shell material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE these ski pants! The Columbia Bugaboo plus-size ski pant is perfect for me and I highly recommend it for a certain figure type. I am a size 16 and very straight. That is, my hips are fairly narrow for my size and I don't have much booty. These pants in a 1x skim right over me and snap securely at the natural waist without being too tight in the middle - YAY! If you are one of the curvy types with a big butt, thighs, hips, these probably will not work for you, but if you have a slimmer or boyish figure, do not hesitate to try these. They are warm, soft inside, waterproof, and the length is not bad for someone 5'4. Highly recommended! December 2, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Awkward fit Returning these due to awkward fit and proportions. They seem designed for a man, or at least a woman with far less curves than I have! I had hoped by going with a 1X, rather than the standard XL version of these pants, that they would've adapted the cut to wider hips, different waist-to-hip ratio, etc. that's typical of "X" sizing. Not the case here, though. Very tight through the thighs (uncomfortable to sit down in), way too long (I'm 5'6''), and waist was many inches too big (goes straight up from the hips). The design and material seems great, but the fit doesn't seem meant for a curvy lady! September 17, 2015
