Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Snowpants Bought the Columbia ridge 2 run Snowpants before my 4 day ski trip in the Rockies and couldn't be happier. Light. Warm. Comfortable. Attractive. April 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect snow pants! I brought two pants! Very stylish and functional! Especially omni heat works well. April 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Purchase I bought these pants for my husband. We moved to Chicago and quickly realized we were not equine for this brutal cold winters. These pants were used as outdoor pants anytime we had to be more than 20 minutes outside.... Usually when we are walking out dog. He loves it and the fit is great. Unfortunately I didn't give it a 5 because the black was out of stock. He still loved the color he got and it has been very useful during these subzero temperatures! March 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Functional and Stylish I bought a pair of Columbia ski pants a couple years ago and they've worked well; when I wanted another pair of pants I started here. I'm not big on bright colors so when I saw the Tradewinds Grey in sort of a cloud patern I checked them out (the actual color has a slight light blue tinge to the grey that's shown). They also came in a 'Short' which I need to prevent the cuffs from dragging when I'm not wearing ski boots. The pants have worked well for me and have been warm, the 'foil' type interior does require you to generate some heat so if you just walked outside and stood there they may not be the best choice (you might notice this on 'first chair'). I however have been warm and appreciate that they're not bulky. I've never felt any moisture or wetness even in snowy conditions. The cargo pants style is useful for carrying stuff, but I could probably do without the hip pockets. The thigh zippers are useful for hot days, but do add to a generally busy look. Another minor nit is that the rear belt loops are on the side and center so cross type suspenders pull oddly (I've solved this by making them center pull). What has surprised me is how many complements I've received on these pants from both friends and strangers. I now feel the need to buy a less bulky parka to complement the look. To be honest I'm not generally too stylish so this is something new for me. All in all I like these pants very much and would buy them again, they serve my needs well and stand out from the crowd. Well done Columbia. March 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product Good quality and good price for a Columbia ski pant March 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit Great fit and not very bulky, I'm a 34 waist and the pant has plenty of room around the waist but the excess can be taken up easily by the adjusting the sides. It is difficult to find pants short enough for me (inseam 30) but these pants are perfect in length. March 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Men's Ridge to run As with all Columbia products the product is excellent with the only exception, it does not have gator hooks on the pants. February 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Little snug, but great product I'm a size 33/32 so I originally ordered a medium short and a medium regular. I didn't really find to much difference in the "short" and "regular" versions of the pants but the medium was very snug. Ended up getting a large and it worked. Great pants, durable, kept me warm on a day that was in the teens. February 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cool pants Wasn't sure if I should have gotten the frost or the dark pant when shopping online, so I went with Frost and it was a hit. Many friends and people asked about the pants. It was cool. A little different than the black that everyone has on the slopes. True to size and great quality. I got an online discount which made it even more of a score. February 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great ski pants These pants are stylish and highly functional. They're great as a light weight shell worn over tights. So far they've held up great on the slopes in Minnesota with temperatures as low as 0 degrees F. Plenty of vents are available for when the weather warms up. Lots of pockets too. Great pants. February 16, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Material and Quality Disappointing I used these pants for snowboarding. For reference I am a 34 waist and I purchased a large they fit well I got this size to wear layers. On the first use the stitching in the groin came apart. I repaired it myself to then have no issues with it the next use. However, the next time I used the pants the seam began coming apart on the back of the pant. The material also becomes ripped easily. I fell only a few times during the day and there were multiple rips that you could see starting. The design of the pant and how well it keeps you warm is great however the poor material used is the issue. February 7, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Wet seat These pants seem short wasted (not enough room in crotch). The first day of use was wet snow that melted when it landed on you. After only one ride up the chair lift, my seat was wet. I seemed to be dry everywhere else. February 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Pants These are very warm. All I ever needed on the slopes was a thin base layer and these pants and I was never cold. February 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Men’s Ridge to Run™ II Pant Awesome pants, Fit great good material and sizing was no issue adjustable Velcro sides allow for adjusting, Fast shipping February 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great! Little did I know one of my ski buddies has the same pants. We are both pleased as they perform well. The short length sizing is just what we both needed. Skied them in 8 degrees and was nice and warm. January 28, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great but... I recently purchased a pair and went snowboarding once, then I used them to shovel snow. I use a belt to keep them secure. When I removed my belt the front left belt loop ripped off the top. I love the pants, there awesome! Just wasn't expecting that to happen my second time using them. January 24, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by can't go wrong for this money My biggest concern while buying pants had always been the length, my size is 32 waist and 30 length; for a short guy like me it's always a challenge to find gear that fit. Columbia offers these pants with short length too and they sit perfect on me. I bought size S/SHORT. Overall the pants are of excellent quality and although there is no padding I found them warm enough while wearing base layer. They are waterproof too that is a desirable feature when skiing in snowfall. For this price you won't find any better, I looked. January 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Room to work with - just what I needed! These pants replaced a pair of another manufacturer's ski pants that were destroyed - my gear gets a lot of action. When I first used these pants I was amazed at the amount of room they offered by using the reflective layer instead of heavier insulation. They're a little baggy, which gives room to move without worrying you're gonna blow a seam in a wipeout (happened to me twice on other pants). First use was on a 5 degree night with just baselayer underneath-cold, especially around the leg vents. Just had them out for a full day of skiing in 27 degree weather with just baselayer and the vents open the whole day- perfect! Good array of pockets, comfortable to wear, reliable and the black print looks great! Probably going to buy a second pair! January 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fit I use this and a base layer and i'm good really like the fact that it reflects my heat December 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like a ski shell for the lower body I got these for ground-based winter activities where I needed a bit of an upgrade from my Passo Alto heat pants. These are made of the same nylon twill Omni Tech fabric as my Columbia Interchange ski jacket. Cinch the velcro tabs down on the waist and they are the heighth of comfort. 34"W, 32"L, and the Large Regular fit perfectly. The gaiters strap securely over my hiking boots. They flex and move pretty well on hikes. The leg vents are phenomenal and very welcome - Omni Heat really gets warm as you get moving. For sedentary activities I would put a fleece pant or long undies beneath. For high-level activities down into the 30's F, these are all I need. Completely water- and snow-proof. Move EXTREMELY well as hikers for being ski pants - not bulky AT ALL. Perfect complement to my winter adventure gear! December 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Snowboard Pants Awesome pants, my favorites by far. Tradewinds Grey looks "sick!' according to my daughter, which I understand to mean 'great'. Size wise: I am 5'7" 180lb with 32" waist & strong legs. Large SHort was what I bought after trying on Med Reg, L Reg, and L Short. The Med Reg fit my waist great and length good, but my thighs would have Hulked out the seams after a couple trips. L Reg was clown-pants long for me and way baggy. L Short was perfect in length and roomy at waist but not too much. Flexibility, look, feel, function... Columbia designers nailed it on these. October 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A bit long in the legs Have only worn one weekend so far. Very comfortable both in the cold teen degree morning and the low 40s afternoon. I wear 34+ (depends on the slacks :-) with 32 inseam. These are a bit long and come lower on my ski boots than others. Large fits my waist comfortably. The powder cuffs are very tight, which helps protect the batteries for my boot warmers from getting lost. The cargo packets are too well designed to keep snow out, with an extra fold for protection. That also makes getting things in and out a bit difficult. Real test will be tomorrow when skiing temps will be below zero to start. Had difficulty with the "Fit" indicator at top of review. Pants are very slightly small at waist (or I am slightly big) but also long or large in the leg. So I left it at true but with reservations February 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Excellent product, serve its purpose. February 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fit great, comfortable and dry I just returned from a ski trip to Colorado, and I was pleased with the product. It fit great, and kept me dry and warm. I am glad that it has belt loops, because I wore a belt to help keep it in place, as I am an aggressive skier. Plenty of pockets. February 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great features Very satisfied with the pants.extra pockets on the legs for my gloves. And the leg vents were convenient for regulating heat February 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for warmer skiing conditions I received these just in time for a ski trip to Snowshoe WV. The conditions were fairly warm and these ski pants were perfect. The fit was a little large around the waist but there are adjustable velcro straps to tighten them up (also has belt loops if you want to go that route). They kept me plenty warm in 25-35 degree weather without any long layers underneath. The vents on the inside of the legs are perfect to help keep you cool as well. Very comfortable and worth the money February 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ski Pants in Florida I bought these pants on a whim. I don't need them but I got a good deal at my local store so I went for it. I decided to try them out on a cold, rainy day and I was more than pleased. Living in FL has turned me into a baby when it comes to cold weather. I continue to wear them any time I go out in the rain if the temperature drops below my comfort level. They fit well with a small baselayer or over a pair of jeans if I'm just looking to stay dry. Nice and toasty. January 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by good allaround snow pant Good snow pant for any kind of winter sports. They are very light. The inner reflective fabric layer is thin compared to the quilted pants I'm used to, but I'm liking the increased freedom of movement. I've been wearing just cotton long-johns underneath, which was adequate on windy chair lift rides at 14°F, and hiking at 5°F. If it got much colder I would add a second base layer. It's been so cold and snowy here I've been wearing them all day every day, for skiing, snow play, walking, and even to work (repairing furnaces). January 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect they fit better than my favorite jeans. very warm. zippered pockets are great. very true to size. January 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice pants. I normally where 38 and bought XL these fit perfect. Not overly warm but still love the pants. January 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Terrific Cross Country Ski Pants I highly recommend these pants. I wore them for several days while cross country skiing in Yellowstone National Park. They kept me warm in the 20-30 degree weather. I was particularly impressed that the built in gaiters kept my feet and legs completely dry even though I fell twice in deep snow. The zipper pockets prevented me from losing my wallet or keys. Finally, the blue color I chose looked great and matched the blue wicking undershirt I wore. January 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warmth in a lighter weight garment. I like this style of ski pant and the Omni Heat drives it home. It is becoming my only choice for cold weather outer wear because it works. There are more generous and a number of pockets on these pants compared to competitive designs. The omni heat allows for a lighter weight with more warmth. The mediums I got are slightly longer and wider than my comparable pants. However they are a functional fit and the velcro waist adjustments compensate for that. January 9, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by These pants have some great features, weight of the fabric, ample pockets, and a great look I love everything about the pants except the sizing. The large were just a bit to small and the XL are a bit to big. I purchased XL/Short. I have trouble with inseam sizes as I'm 6' tall with a 30" leg length. I wish the pants were about an 1"shorter. That being said, I really like the weight of the fabric, the lining keeps me warm, and the pockets provide plenty of room to carry things I like the zipper on the rear pocket. The styling is exceptional. I'm a ski instructor and wear ski clothing often. I think these pants will prove to be a good purchase. January 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lightweight pant runs slightly small My 13 year old son has only worn these once for skiing (around 30 degree weather) and a few times to shovel or play in snow (closer to between negative to teens in temperature). He likes how lightweight they are and seems to be fine with the warmth. We will see how they rate when he actually skis in the 20s or below. However, the sizing runs small. I ordered a small based on the chart. He has just moved into 3o waist/34 length pants and the small was tight in the hips and short. He has a slim, but muscular frame. He is now wearing the medium which gives him plenty of room in the seat and can be adjusted to fit well in the waist. He is happy with the pants. January 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great ski pants, runs large Great pants for skiing/snowboarding, very warm without being uncomfortably so. Make sure to have a baselayer underneath, the omni-heat still feels weird against bare skin. Very waterproof for snowboarders who sit in the snow all day, and easy to move in. Does run fairly large. I'm 5'11 and 200, and the large is still pretty baggy on me, especially at the calf/ankle region. Not so bad with ski boots on, but with regular shoes I have to be pretty careful not to trip on them. December 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by RIDGE to RUN II Styling is great, great pocket placement, prefer a less visible location of the inner thigh vent zipper. Color is amazing. You can feel the omni heat immediately upon trying them on, which is great. I would have said the function is excellent but the fabric had typical flexibility. I was hoping for a more advanced elastic fabric especially for simply squatting down to buckle ski boots or strap into a snowboard. Over all I am excited to hit the slopes with my new RED PANTS!!!;-) December 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable and functional Moved to central Wisconsin and I was looking for pants that would keep me warm during my daily walk with our dog. The comfort and many pockets with zippers are a plus. The waist adjustments are a nice feature if you are layering your upper body. The fit is true to the size chart. December 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Ski Pant For Everyday Abuse These ski pants stand up to the elements, are waterproof, and get the job done on the slopes. What more do you want with your pants? The omniheat lining does it's job providing a bit of warmth, but this particular pant style is lighter than others Columbia has to offer. And, I like them that way. I typically run too hot wearing long underwear or shorts under most ski pants, but this combination works just perfect for me. I typically trash pants quickly because of my skiing style. So far, these have stood up to the test after a few days of skiing. They still look like they're brand new and just came out of the package! I picked up these pants knowing I'd want to do some ski touring in them. They work excellent for backcountry skiing because of how light and nimble they are. Their also comfortable and work great in the resort. December 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fit Nice ski pant. Great fit true to size. It's hard to find ski pant in a short length. Thanks Columbia! Love the color. A high quality pant at a reasonable price. Fast shipping November 15, 2013
