Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs small I ordered these to wear when we go to Fairbanks in February. They are a nice quality and seem to be warm, but they run small. Even without a base layer, they fit small. I'm 5'4", 130lbs and ordered a medium. I'm returning for a large because I'll be wearing these over a base and mid layer. January 15, 2017
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great Quality, rather small I normally wear a small, but thinking I wanted to wear thermals underneath I went with a medium. These are so tight around the thighs and stomach. I probably should've bought a large. I can't even wear the thermals under these. But they work for what I will use them for. January 3, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by cute Ordered medium first but want to layer underneath so sent back to size up to large. 5'2 145 big booty/hips. medium fit but not comfy to sit large too big but have a strap inside to make smaller. Will be easy to fit jeans or leggings under and still be able to breath/eat/move. cute many fun colors excited to try in iceland short was a great option January 2, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Great product,my daughter very happy December 26, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product Bought these for snowboarding and they work great and fit well over my boots. They also have lots of great pockets. I'm 5'8 and 130 lbs and a size small fit well. I Would recommend them. December 5, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Huge I am 5'8", 125lbs, typically wear a size 2/4 or small pants, and the SMALL was huge on me. The pants were barely staying up on my hips and left at least a 3" gap around my waistline. They were also a bit long; a good length if you plan to wear them with ski boots or other large snow boots, but may trip you up with a lower-profile boot/shoe. Seem to be good quality, but I haven't gotten to wear them yet since I had to exchange for a size down. December 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great ski pant. The size is accurate and I am impressed so far with the quality. They have kept me warm and dry on the ski hill. November 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect product! Perfect insulation and water proof, very comfortable. I used it in the snow for hours. Never got cold or wet. I was a little worried when I got the products because I noticed after the purchase there was an insulated pant, but I used over a WOMEN’S MIDWEIGHT II TIGHT and worked perfectly. August 23, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by A bit tight if you carry weight in your legs I'm 5'10" and 190 lbs. I carry weight fairly proportionately -- maybe a bit more in the legs where others might carry it in the waist instead. Meaning: I look more Amazon like than heavy. I mention this because I had a devil of a time finding snow pants this year and want to help others find the best size. The x-lg was massively big for me in the waist, but the lg (perfect in waist and bum) was too snug in the thigh to ski or play in. So,try the Fierce a Force pant by Columbia instead. It has just a tiny bit more room in the upper thigh. And the fabric and construction justify the slightly higher cost. February 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Glad I Purchased This! Love love love these pants!! I was unsure whether to buy my real size or one size up since I'll be wearing pants underneath it. I ended up buying the size I normally buy and it fits perfectly. I got Medium in magenta and I'm 5'8 and 145 lbs. These kept my butt dry the whole day snowboarding. The inner pants can be tucked inside your shoe and the outer part goes over the shoe. It's got a nice thick material that kept me warm throughout the day. Great product overall. February 25, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed the quality and make of these pants are excellent, however the leg is SO wide it looks extremely awkward. I've worn many brands of ski pant and never have I ever felt like I was wearing full on bell bottoms with a super wide leg throughout the whole pant. It doesn't at all look like the picture, which shows a straight leg. Very awkward to move in and looks bizarre. I will unfortunately be returning. February 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow, these are AMAZING!!! I recently got moved at work and now work in the freezer/cooler area. I bought these for warmth and I could not be more pleased. I am always, always cold. Not with these. I wear a pair of under armour cold base pants only and I have yet to feel more than chilly. It is -10 in the freezer and it doesn't even bother me (well my arms and legs anyway). And they are super cute to boot. I got the plum color and they are great. I'm not sure if they run a bit large or if it is expected that they will be worn with more layers. At any rate I ordered a medium and they are a bit large on me. I'm 5'7" and 140#. February 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Snowpants After reading reviews on these pants I bought a size up from what I would normally buy. I'm on the tall side at 5'9" and I've got larger hips and long legs. When these arrived I immediately tried them on and while rather snug over my hips and butt they fit and I didn't have any trouble closing them. I was also really happy that the pants reached my feet, when you have long legs this is a novel experience. With the snug fit I either wear these alone or with some leggings and I haven't had any issue staying warm when I'm outside working or shoveling for extended periods in the cold bitter MN winter. February 12, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not for pear-shapes XL was more like Extra Long, not extra Lg. Waist sat too low and crotch too short. Would fit men's bodies better with narrow hips/thighs. Legs way too long. Plumber's "view" too easy to see. Sent them back and will look for more "female" fit with waist that sits at waist and more seat room for comfort. January 29, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed bought an XL and felt like a Medium January 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too small The blue is a beautiful color! These pants are very nice quality but the do run small. I ordered a Med based on other reviews I'm 5'5 135 and the pants fit very snug and wouldn't be conforrable wearing for any length of time. Will be exchanging for a bigger size. January 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too small Loved these snow pants. Great quality and awesome color. Size ran small. January 21, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by NOT WATERPROOF I love this ski pant EXCEPT for the fact that it is NOT WATERPROOF as advertised. I ski in TN and NC, for the most part, as I'm local. When the chair lift seat starts getting wet (from snow off other skiers or melting snow on mechanisms dripping on sunny days), I soak right through! Cuts short my ski day as its cold skiing wet! Disappointed these pants aren't truly waterproof. January 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE these snow pants The Bugaboo pants are wonderful! They block the wind and are warm but not bulky, there are two snaps at the bottom of the legs, there is a great zippered pocket and the back sits higher. I am 5'7", 140 lbs. and the medium/regular length fits perfectly. You can wear these around town they are so nice and well made. Have been out in -10 degrees and never got cold. Great value for the cost. LOVE them! January 15, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bugaboo pants These pants fit a little large especially in one hip. Very strange how one side of the pants is too big. Maybe because the other side has a pocket and lays flatter. I tried a small but going to size down to XS in these. Hoping that takes care of the problem January 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent snow pants! I bought these for my fiancé because she is always cold, thus she would be extremely cold on the mountain. She said that they are the warmest pants she's ever worn on the mountain. They are soft. They keep her dry. And as a shorter woman, 5'3", the Short fit her perfectly. January 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Short Length - Great Pants Bought a Large Short. I wear a 10P - 12P and I'm 5'2" - these fit perfectly. It's hard to find the right length. Great purchase. January 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm & Comfy - bought bigger size to layer I m 5'4", weigh 120 lbs, and usually wear a Small or 4-6 depending on brand. But because I'm high-waisted and built like Olive Oyl, pants that are cut to go at the natural waistline cut me in quarters - in both the waist and crotch. My waist is about 29.5" and hips 36" and inseam 29". I ordered the Medium a figured they'd be a little baggy. I love to layer tops & tuck them in -- this Medium size is perfect. Plenty of waist room, and the adjustment tabs give you lots of leeway. Even with tights underneath, the hips are a bit loose, but heck, I can move around freely and not be constricted. The Short length I ordered (29) is perfect too. The gaiters work a charm, and I love these pants in deep snow. Trailbreaking is no longer a dread. These are great pants. Very toasty and functional. January 2, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great length but need more pockets. I was looking for a short ski pant and this fit the bill well - no more turnups. But there aren't enough pockets - I was very surprised to only find one on the front, and two with velcro on the back. At least need two on the front. Pants were warm and dry. All in all a good purchase and good value for money. January 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Warm I have an athletic build and the pants are a little tight the thighs, so I sized up. They are a little loose in the butt now, but I don't feel constricted during activities. (Snowshoeing and snowball fights!) I have stayed warm and dry, I love these pants as much as I love snow! December 14, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Grey Charcoal Color These are not Black pants. Its hard to tell online the true color but it is more a Grey Charcoal color. I don't like the color but I went to the store to exchange for a true black color and the store didn't have them. I'm debating just returning them period now as I'm not happy with them. December 4, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by This product is smaller than size Its great that its available in short length but made a little snug for size. Also the medium is snug and the large a bit big for me. Tried it at a store to avoid returns but there was a difference in the medium regular and the medium short. The tegular was ok but the short was too tight. December 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just Perfect Very happy with quality, workmanship and design. Especially happy that I was able or order them in a Short length since all other pants I've tried were only available in lengths that were way too long and would bunch at the bottom, and get dragged on the ground. Haven't has a chance to wear them "in action" because of the very mild weather. But I'm absolutely sure they will keep me toasty warm on even the coldest days on my photo walks in deep snow. November 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE These pants I wore these pants while camping in the mountains (in October). The low temp that night was 25 and these layered over my jeans was perfect for keeping the wind out and keeping my legs nice and warm. Definitely keeping these handy for the winter. October 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Snow Pants! I have worn these for shoveling in some cold Wisconsin weather, and am very impressed with their warmth and wind resistance. I like the inside elastic leg liner for tucking into my boots, and then the outer pant leg fits over the boot to keep my feet totally dry! Highly recommend! February 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dry Bum I wore these bugaboo snow pants yesterday for the very first time. I wore them while snowboarding. The pants were very comfortable. I had enough room and to move and bend. I ordered a size small. They kept me warm and dry. I love these snow pants! Thank you Columbia for another quality product! January 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and cute! These kept me very warm, comfortable and I didn't feel like a dorky stay puft marshmallow man. They ran a little big on me (I normally wear about a 4/27 and ordered a small), though it kind of works for layering up. I only wore athletic leggings underneath and was comfortable all day. January 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value and style I'm 5'9 145 and the medium fits perfect for ski (I like a little wiggle room to allow better mogul runs). Really nice looking, and in white, goes with everything old and new in the closet. January 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable, Warm, Durable I got these snow pants because they were offered in a "Short" and I love them. They keep you super warm, are very durable, and and super comfortable. I got the black print ones, and they are really cute! I like where the pockets are, and how the waist is adjustable! Would definitely buy these again! January 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice for the price! I just got these in the mail, so haven't been able to test them on the slopes, but can definitely comment on size and fit. I am 6'0" and these pants in regular are long enough: they almost hit the floor when I am barefoot, so should be good with ski boots too. They do run a bit large (I wear size 6-8 pants in most brands), but I don't think it should be much of a problem for snow pants. These turn out to be kind of a relaxed fit with room for layering. Overall, the pants feel nice and seem to be nice quality, especially for the price (the cheapest decent-looking pair I was able to find!). January 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ski pants run big Last year I wore a size 8 ski pant in another brand but they are tight. I am currently wearing a size 10 jean so ordered a large short based on other reviews here. They were way too big and larger than large ski pants in other brands that I tried on recently in stores. It's a great pant so I'll reorder in a medium. Though I ordered a short, they are still quite long. December 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warmest pants ever! I would like a pair in every color! These pants keep me so warm. I love being able to keep snow outside of my clothes! And regardless how cold it is or how much snow covered me, I remained super warm, so I'm thrilled knowing Omni Heat really works! November 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by a little too baggy I'm in between a size 4, 6 and 8, depending on the brand, so I got the M. Overall, they were a little too baggy for my taste; legs are really wide; the straps on the waist do help the fit. I'm just exchanging them for a S instead. Super cute and love the pockets! November 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice pants Winter is still a few months away, but I ordered these to replace some old pants, that could hold up to the harsh Wisconsin winter. I am only 5'3 and weigh 138lbs, so after trying on a pair of mediums in another brand at the store, I decided to go with the large. The pants in the store were very snug and I like comfort. The large are a bit big, but there are nice interior Velcro straps inside the waistband to tighten the pants. After adjusting them, they fit well. I have other Columbia products for myself and my family and think these will work well. I use them for dog walking, sledding, snowshoeing and xc skiing or just being outside in winter. September 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bugaboo Ski Pant I returned the product, it ws too small. March 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dry, warm, & comfortable! I went snowboarding for the 1st time this weekend, so needless to say I was on my behind for most of the day! These pants kept my dry & comfortable All day. I highly recommend them, & will be checking out the men's line to get my husband a pair. March 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by love these pants! Went tubing with these and was not cold or wet. It was a bit muddy but it rolled right off. Love the red color. Very pretty and fit great. I am a size 12 and 5'8" and ordered a large. March 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit and look. I am short (5' 1") and have had troubling finding snowpants to fit correctly. I ordered these in short, and they fit great. They also ran true to size or slightly large. And they look great! Lots of room to move around and kept me warm. March 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bugaboo Pants Need to return for larger size; your site email isn't working February 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bugaboo pants and jacket are great Bought pants to match jacket bought at Dicks. Both have Great styling. Excellent fit. Great colors. Very comfortable and warm. February 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing pants for skiing! Love love love these pants! They fit perfectly over my clothes for skiing, tubing, etc. and they are warm. I would definitely recommend these pants. I'm 140 lbs. and 5'6..got a Medium and they fit perfect. They also have these Velcro things inside the pants where you can tighten or loosen them if need be. February 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by keeps you warm I ordered these so I could play with my kids in the snow in the single digit weather. They kept me warm and dry. They do run big. I am normally a large, but based on the reviews, I ordered a medium, and they fit a little loose over jeans. February 11, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Quality materials, needs a design tweak or two These pants are obviously high-quality material and look nice. Two significant problems, though: 1. They run small (beyond your standard "margin of error" for an item being too big or too small). 2. The velcro straps to tighten up the waist are located on the inside of the pants, making it unnecessarily inconvenient and difficult to fiddle with once the pants are on. The straps ended up being the deciding factor. Went with a very similar pant from a competitor where the only difference was that the waist straps were located on the outside. February 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome snow pant I am pleased with the quality they seem warm the adjustable waist band is great liked the white good value for the price Looking forward to fait le ski. February 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best ski pants ever I like their fit and the colors. Very warm February 3, 2014
