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
Rated 4 out of 5 by A fine pair of winter activity pants, but not for the curve--a-licious These were okay pants. The foot openings have an adjustable velcro part and an inner button-together part to fit over boots. The waist velcro strap is helpful because I'm super curvy, although the velcro strap only changes the fit of the inner lining. If you're curvy and re-velcro the waist, the outer waterproof layer will stay the same size and shape, which looks a little weird but functions just fine. See the photo, taken of a super dusty mirror. That said, the inner lining of the pants is incredibly soft and comfortable. For reference: I'm 5'3 and an "athena." Overall, a good buy for the price. February 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pants I'm 5'2 so I bought the short was an excellent choice! Fits perfectly! I usually wear a size 6 so I bought a Medium which worked out well. Plenty of room for thermals, etc. January 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ski pants that rock! I bought the Bugaboo pants for my husband, one of my kids, and myself for a ski trip last week. LOVED! All of us agreed we stayed super warm and dry. I am about a women's size 6 and ordered a size Small. They fit, but were a bit snug in the thighs. I ordered a Medium to see if they were any better. Although a little bigger all over, it was easy to adjust the waist w/ the velcro inside. I kept the Mediums. I figured better to have enough room when bending. January 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pair of snow pants on a budget I was looking for a pair of ski pants in the $75-$100 range, since we're on a pretty tight budget, and I was excited when I found these Bugaboo pants and read all the great reviews online. I ordered the XL, as my normal pant size is 12, and I wanted a pair that I can layer under, and these really fit the bill. I can wear my long underwear very comfortably under these pants. The length is perfect for ski boots (I can't attest to their comparability with snow board boots), they are plenty warm & waterproof, and very comfortable! January 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great, warm pants These fit perfectly. I have not been skiing with them yet (I will in a week) but I did go sledding for 2 hours in frigid temps and they kept me warm, dry and feeling amazing. Thank you Columbia! January 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by ski pant Great material and color just as shown on the internet. Runs a little bit larger, but you can put layers underneath which comes handy in cold weather. I recommend this. January 14, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Didn't like Rear Pockets I have an athletic build - fairly straight torso so the waist was snug and not comfortable. I didn't like the pockets on the rear which I thought added too much bulk to the rear. Actually, the pants in general were too bulky feeling for me. I was lucky to find another style of Columbia ski pants - almost identical but with a smooth rear (in black) that fit so much better, felt much less bulky and are a lot more comfortable. This color was pretty but the shade didn't go very well with my ski jacket either. I'll be returning these. January 11, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Runs Very Big We will need to return these. Ran very big! January 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bugaboo Pants for Women I'm 5'4" and 120 lbs. Depending on what brand of pants I'm buying I can fit in both a 4 or 6. I decided to go with the small and it fits perfectly. The color is not as deep red as I thought it looked on my computer screen, but is still a nice color. They are very warm and will be great for the slopes. January 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect except... I ordered online because I live in the middle of nowhere. So I followed the measurements and even measured 3 times just to make sure. According to the measurements I needed to order a size small with a short inseam. I was pretty skeptical about ordering a short inseam but the measurements said... so finally I received them and tried them on and sure enough they were too short. About an inch, give or take, too short. Everything else fit perfectly. So unless you're like 5'4" don't order the short inseam... December 19, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great! These pants kept me warm and dry all day and it was only 10 degrees out! glad i got them! however, i wish i ordered a bigger size. by the time you get your layers on, i couln't button them, and i'm not a very big person, and i was well in the size demstions of a medium, they were just a little too tight right at the waist. December 19, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Color! I got the "Deep Blush" and the color is bright—even brighter than I expected—but still wearable and fun in the context of a ski hill. I usually wear an 8/10 petite and got these in a M short. the fit is perfect. I'm a bit concerned about the velcro adjustment tabs inside the waist grabbing at my clothes and pulling them, but overall, a good buy. December 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect fit! I bought this pants in Deep Blush. Although it looks a bit brighter and more vivid than it appears on the screen, I am totally satisfied with its fit. Usually I wear pants in medium size but as other reviewer said I chose small short size for this one and it was a right choice. I am 5'3'' high and 120lb. I can tuck all my tops in. I haven't worn this in the snow yet so I can't comment on its function, but as I wore this in my room it was very warm and light to move around. I can't wait to go to the snow mountain with my new pants this winter! December 18, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Pants The bugaboo pant fit very well and offer a great protection from the elements. I fit in the large size even though my waist is 34in. I even needed to use the velcro tightener in the waist. They fit great in my hips and thighs which is difficult for active women. As a runner I have the toughest time getting pants to fit my thighs but these work perfectly. December 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice pants Nice pants, not yet used them, we are in summer, but I will try on my trip to cold, soon! A little bigger than I thought, weight 61 kg and ordered the M. December 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pro Angler I wore these pants over active pants. I am 5'5" and they were the perfect length. I have not worn them in the snow or rain yet but I have worn them in 28 degree weather during cheer practice. They were flexible and comfortable. December 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Great Basic Ski Pant Got these in the Fuschia and love them! They fit really true to size but to sit on your natural waist so if you don't like high pants don't get. The only downfall of these warm and water proof pants are that there are not any vents for spring skiing or warmer winter days. Other than that these are a steal at the price! December 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Finally a great fit for petite size I'm 5' 3" and have been looking for a good fit in ski pants. These bugaboo pants are perfect! Quality excellent, fit is true to size, and they are warm for downhill skiing or sledding. December 9, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bugaboo pants Just received these in hibiscus. Look great but they run small so have ordered a larger size and I will see if they are better. I am 5'41/2" and the short is perfect in length. November 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent winter sports snow pant I ordered the short inseam....my 5'4" body really needed this. They fit great with enough leg to cover my boots but not have extra inches of leg dragging behind me. I love the adjustable waist. I am so glad I found a brand that caters to petite women! Thank you Columbia brands! October 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good pants Slim fitting/flattering. I ordered a small and all is well. I typically wear a small (5'4", 125lbs. ). Regular length was perfect for my height. They are a tad big in the waist but an xs would be way to small....I have larger hips and a smaller waist. I will buy these in more colors. October 1, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs large, but a great pant I haven't used these in the cold and snow yet, so this review is just based on construction and fit. I initially ordered a medium because at 5'9" and 135lbs I often need a medium in pants just based on my height. But the small ended up being the perfect fit, in length and waist, and will give me just enough room for a baselayer. There is an internal belt, but I was swimming in the medium even with that cinched in all the way. This is in contrast to some other Columbia pants where I do wear a medium. Just FYI. The colors are brighter in person (I tried them on in a store before ordering), and the pants are comfortable and well made. I can't wait to try them out! September 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Super stylish colour also comes with great function OK gals, if you debate on the colours between the trendy bright ones v.s plain conservative ones, go with the trendy one. I got the Red Hibiscus colour. It brings out a very flatterring look that would match other gears in black or white or grey etc. The fit is very atheletic to outline a nice curve. It has one insulated layer inside so it feels warm (I haven't gone outside onto a cold weather tirp yet to test this). Also one adjusting patch makes the waist length flexible. If anything I wish more these pants dont have front pockets to make them more functional. (only one side pocket) Overall it is a high P/E ration item. September 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for snow. I am happy with this product overall. I went skiing with them so these pants were perfect for the occasion. The only thing; they do run a little larger than the speculated size. I ordered a size small but fit like a medium. I just wore a belt and all was OK. They are comfortable, waterproof, snow-proof and warm. These pants are roomy enough that wearing thermals underneath was no problem at all. March 6, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great quality but WAY too big! Well, I'm about 5'2" and I weigh around 100lbs. I normally wear a 00/0 in jeans. I'm aware I'm very tiny for a 28 year old adult but my goodness. I practically had to pull these up to my armpits for them to be the right length. It's depressing/hilarious (see photo) that I can't wear an adult XS but I'm pretty sure if you are petite in any way you will join me in that club with this particular pair of ski pants. They felt like they were made very well but just way too big. February 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these pants!!! I bought a pair of these for a snowboarding weekend and they were perfect! They were baggier than I was expecting, but in the end were a perfect size. It left room for all my layers of socks and thermal undergarments! There was a perfect number of pockets and zippers, an adjustable waist band so that they wouldn't slide down after the first fall, and they were also the perfect length. I also loved the yellow/lime color! It made it easier for locating in a slew of other boarders. February 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Pants Wore these on a ski trip in West VA. Stayed warm in snow/freezing rain with only leggings under these pants. I am 5'3 and the regular fit just fine (need to keep in mind you'll be in heavy boots when wearing these) will want to have some extra length to tuck into your ski boots. February 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for the intended purpose Eventhough I found the size chart useful for my purchase, it ended being quite large for me. The waist is adjustable which was very helpful but not very flattering. Also it is important to know that it is not low hip so you are not expecting the size as it is. February 12, 2013
