Rated 5 out of 5 by WanderlustMountainGirl from Amazing Snow Pants for Plus Size! I absolutely love the Women's Bugaboo Pant! This is perfect for all the snow activities I do and I was happy that they fit perfect! I love the adjustable waist sizing mechanism within the inside of waist and the built in gaiters - that way I don't have to use an additional piece of gear! I highly recommend these for plus size women! I normally wear anywhere between 16-20 depending on the brand and usually always a 2X and these worked great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by proth from Nice pants The pants are good quality with a generous fit however I didn't find them very flexible. Perhaps this is because I compared them with my rain pants worn with long underwear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AmyY from Nice pants I live in Western NY and walk my dogs everyday. I read the reviews and they said get the next size bigger. I wear a women 16 jean, I got the 3x because I wear jeans under the pants and that was all that was available. I wish I would have waited on buying them. They are to big. There is adjustable straps around the waist but they don't go small enough. I have to wear a belt. I didn't return them because by the time I would have gotten the right size winter would be over. They keep me worm. I do like these pants I think a 1x would have been fine for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jes77 from LOVE THESE! I did go back and forth on saying if these were true to size or ran a little large, because, they fit well in the waist, perfect actually, even allowing me to sit and not have them dig in....BUT the legs were a little big....I could have used a skinnier leg AND possibly shorter - although I'm only 5'3" - so that's a common problem no matter what.... even with the legs - it may be more my particular shape - I liken myself to a wine glass :-) I am heavier up top, but have small, muscular legs... so I need a larger waist, but not huge legs... I guess I have to blame genetics for that, not Columbia!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Andrea406 from They work for me! I love these! I first ordered the 2x because that's the size I wear in all of the other Columbia pants and jackets. They arrived and they fit -- but that was just it. They were perfectly fit to the point that I knew that playing outside was not going to be an option. So I exchanged them for the 3x - these fit with more ease to move but the waist has so much of a gap on my back that I need a belt to keep them from being too awkward. I am very curvy with a very prominent hourglass shape. It's difficult for me to find pants anyway - I am still happy with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EMacLibrarian from Comfortable Snow Pants As a plus sized woman I've never found snow-pants that didn't bind somewhere on me or feel tight somewhere. Previously if I could find them big enough for my hips they would be too long or too big in the waist. This is not the case with the Columbia Bugaboo pant. The waist is adjustable so I could make them fit just right. I would say they do run a touch small. I am a 2x in most brands but needed a 3x for these. I worried they would be too long because I'm only 5'3 but work well, the gaiters help you to adjust the length too. They are so comfortable. I can move easily in them, they are not bulky. My son was thrilled because I could play with him in the snow and go sledding. Highly recommend the Bugaboo Plus Sized Snow Pants!

Rated 4 out of 5 by StrawberryShortcake from Bugaboo plus snow pants in seafoam/lightbluish xxl Well here is the thing, snow pants are beautiful, they look super cute, keep you warm, sturdy, and do not allow snow in. The cons I’m usually an x1, but went up a size after reading reviews. These pants are not made for women with a butt as your butt will take up most of the space, and leave your waist feeling just a tad tight. The problem with that is when you sit, for example going tubing you need mobility. Also the leg fits a little tight and my legs are not even huge just thick. Therefore, mobility on the thighs is somewhat obstructed. If I go up a size the pants might just be way to big and I’ll look like a clown since I’m short. So good luck and hope you find your right fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Yourmomwearshikingboots from Big pants, bigger butt. I'm big in the rump, but bought my normal size and it was tight. I blame the rump. I gave them to a friend who is a size smaller with no butt, and they fit the waist, but the legs were to big. Also, these could use a couple more pockets.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RevyPlusSize from Just Ok After having two kids I needed extended sizing so I could get back on the ski hill. I find the Columbia plus sizing to be quite boxy and unflattering. I comfortably wore my 2X Columbia rain jacket until I was 9 months pregnant, to give you an idea of how much room there is in the stomach. After pregnancy I purchased these snow pants in 2X and had lots of room in the waist, but nowhere near enough in the seat/hips to move! After ordering the 3X I’m still not comfortable because they fit in the hips, but are HUGE in the waist. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gina2x from SIZE UP IF PEAR-SHAPED (True to size for Apple-shaped bodies) LONG STORY SHORT: These run small in the low hip and thigh. Size up if you have curvy hips and thighs. I gave less than 5 stars for function because the thigh is tight and I want to be able to bend more at the knee when skiing. LONG STORY: These pants are of highest quality! I am a 2x, literally, I'm a size 2x fit model for many clothing brands. I ordered a 3x because people were saying in their reviews that they were small in the thigh...they were CORRECT! My measurements are 42.5 waist and 51 hip. The waist on the 3x is a little big on me, but I used the velcro tabs to bring it down to maybe a 53.5. Not perfect, but they're not falling down. There is WAY to little room in the lower hip and thigh. The 3x is fitting me, but again, I'm a 2x. I can't bend my knees too far before I am stopped by the constraints of the pant. I'd suggest that Columbia re-fit these and CROSS-FIT on at least 2 body types. I feel if I bought the 2x, the waist would've fit, but the lower hip and thigh would've been far too small, so I'm keeping the 3x because (while the waist is large, it is adjustable). Also, regarding length, I'm 5'8 and these are about 1 inch too long...so they are certain to be ok for many heights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by teeitup from Great Snow Pants! I can't wait to hit the slopes in my new pants. I originally ordered them in 3X but soon returned them and got a size 2X. The return process was easy and pain free! These pants give you the option to wear a belt so you have room in the waist to play with. They are long enough to cover my ski boots to my ankle and not ride up. The Cross Dye color is a good change to the traditional black. These will look sharp in a white snow back drop this winter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Capple13 from They fit perfectly! I had an extra large and they were a little snug when I bought them, but gained a little weight over the past year.. So I bought the 1x (I’m 5’3 1/2 - 170lbs - normally wear a size 14 jeans) and they’re a little loose around the waist, but they have the velcro waist band to adjust it- and they fit perfectly once adjusted! They are a little long, however they should be fine with boots on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lauren29 from plus size ski pants for the win I've been looking for plus size ski pants since I took up skiing this past March and these are a winner! I wear size 16/18 jeans, and found that the 2X in these pants fit perfectly (the 3X was way too large -- a pleasant problem I don't usually have). I haven't gone skiing in them yet, so can't speak to the warmth, but a few quick squats after trying them on suggested that they would not be too tight in the thighs/around the stomach while in use. I was able to move normally, which I had been concerned about. Also, I am petite (5' 0"), and while these are definitely long, I didn't feel that they were too long. Thanks Columbia for remembering your plus size customers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TexanByBirth from Plus-sized Snowpants I am an apple-shaped, plus-sized person, so to find pants that fit my waist is always challenging. I found that I was able to put these pants on without problem and had enough room to be able to sit comfortably. I bought these for a winter trip to Canada, so I haven’t tried them in cold weather yet, but they felt warm when I tried them on. I’m pretty sure that these will fit over leggings or jeggings. This shows that this is an incentivized review, but I don’t know what the incentive is supposed to be.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kiwigirlincanada from Good quality, but horrendous fit I am typically a size 22 in pants and opted for the 3XL size based on other reviews that these pants run small. I was hugely disappointed when I received these, as I LOVED the colour (pink!), quality seemed great, but the fit was HORRENDOUS. I could get them on and do them up no problem, but I found them so tight in the leg that I couldn't bend over or crouch down - obviously something you do need to be able to do. Despite being very tight, there was enormous gaping at the back of the waistband. My figure, while plus-size (which is apparently a nightmare to cater to), is pretty well proportioned! I don't understand how a pair of pants that are typically designed to have a bit of room in them could fit so poorly when they state the size is 24-26, when I wear a size 22. It makes me feel very disappointed for people with a larger build as I have searched high and low to find fun, well-fitting, well-made ski pants and this was my last hope. Why bother!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Elsa14 from Get a size up I tend to have a tough time fitting 'regular size' snowpants as my thighs are very muscular and I have wider hips. I decided to try these line of pants for the first time. Luckily I got a size bigger than I would normally get as they do run rather small. All in all. Great pants, if I'm colder weathers you may need a few layers though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Woodsy576 from Like so far Based on reviews I ordered one size up. They are a little big in the hips and waist. The adjustable waist solves the waist issue and in order to wear for activities other than walking in the cold, the extra room in the hips is needed. I have worn them once at about 30 degrees with just cuddle duds underneath and they kept me warm and dry. Overall I am happy with these snow pants. Kudos to Columbia for making active wear for plus size women.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MCLO from Big time gapping in the back I'm 5'8 260 lbs and hourglass shaped with a wide bottom. I got the XXL thinking that would work. They do fit over my hips, but the waistband gaps out about 4 inches from my lower back, and I don't want to moon the world or get snow down my backside. I think some elastic on the waistband (which does not seem to be adjustable at all) would go a long way. Belts don't usually work very well for me. I think I might want to try a bib style snowpant, but unfortunately doesn't look like Columbia carries that style. I also note that these are very long pants. I am pretty tall and they worked, but someone even a little shorter than I would probably be walking on the ends of these pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by UtahSkiMom from Great Plus Size Ski Pants!!!! 5' 4" 195 lbs apple shaped I'm a plus size advanced skier from Utah and it has always been a pain to find womens ski pants big enough to fit around my waist. I always resorted to men's pants but they were ridiculously long. THESE ARE GREAT WOMENS FIT PANTS! I'm on my second pair now. Warm, waterproof, nice wide waistband. A little long on me- I wish the young had a short version. Am doing a little "puffy" but overall the best fitting women's plus size ski pant available- believe me - I've tried them all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jen79 from Love the style but the fit didn't work for me I didn't end up keeping this pant in the end as I was between the 1X and 2X sizes. If you have bigger thighs or butt it won't work very well - it's definitely more of a slim fit pant. The 2X was way too roomy, but the 1X I couldn't get over my thighs. I still like the Columbia product but not this specific style for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jenefor from Finally! I have been looking for a pair of pants for snowboarding and just playing in the snow but never found any that fit my size. I wear a size 18-20 in jeans and have a big backside. It was nearly impossible to find a good looking, thin pair of snow pants (I don't need any extra fluff) Anyhow after looking online at my options the buggaboo pant kept coming up so I decided to give them a try. I was so excited when they came and they fit wonderfully. I got a 3X they are a tad big, however I think the 2X might be a bit too snug for squatting wearing a base layer etc. The best part is that they look like the other "cute" girl brands out there. Extra bonus...when I sit my backside is still covered. Being a shorter gal I do wish that they sold these in short reg and tall. They are a bit on the longer side but with boots they are fine (much better then wearing guy pants and having a mile of extra leg) I am now looking into the omniheat version for colder days (and more color options) Thanks Columbia for realizing that there is a market for extended snow sizes :)

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Beets from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PlusSizeSnowboarder from 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 RlcinNorCal from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MamabirdX2 from Nice color, warm,...legs are a bit wide Ordered these in a 2X, I wear a size 18W in jeans and am 5'8". The waist fits good, maybe a touch big but they have elastic and Velcro adjustable waist. The legs are a bit long but I'm sure once I wear with boots I won't notice. Ordered these in Purple Dahlia, I love the color and they will accent my Columbia 3 in 1 interchangeable jacket nicely. Wish I would have waited 3 days to get $30 off. On the downside, I feel the leg (from knee to ankle) is REALLY wide. Wish they could make snow pants with more of a bootcut leg. I'm sure these will work nicely for playing in the snow with my kids.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ChattNat from 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Terricloth from Love these snow pants! I bought these last winter at the end of the season. The reviews were pretty accurate about sizing being a little small. I wear an 18w and purchased the 1x. It's a little snug but at the time there was no 2x available. For what I needed these were perfect! Going snow tubing and playing with the dog in the snow. I just wore a pair of leggings underneith and I was ready to go. They kept me warm and dry! I Most Definitely Recommend This Product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Taydub24 from Incredible Snow Pants! I was in a panic trying to find a pair of snow pants that actually fit, days before leaving for our mountain vacation. I saw these online, ordered them, and received them the next day. They fit like they were tailored for me. I'm 5'10" and usually wear a 22-24 pant or a 2x-3x. They are comfortable, light enough to easily get on and move around, but heavy enough to keep you warm. They are so well made that even after skidding on asphalt in a parking lot for multiple feet you couldn't phase them. No damage at all! I seriously didn't want to take them off, they are such great pants!!! Way to go Columbia!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by FrozenCharlotte from Ideal for large, pear-shaped skiers I live in northwest Minnesota, where serious cold-weather gear is critical. I am a large woman, typically wearing pants size 16 or 18, and when I went to buy pants for snow wear at my local sporting-goods store, I found nothing over size 12. I finally ended up buying some men's pants in size XL. Apparently fat chicks are not to be seen outside in winter. So I was very excited to find these pants offered in 'extended sizing' by Columbia. My waist, 40", is very large compared to my hips, so to be on the safe side, I ordered the 2X. I was delighted to find that I had plenty of extra room in the waist. I was less thrilled by how much room I had everywhere else. According to the CDC, the average woman in America is 5'4" tall. I am just over 5'5", and am swimming in these things. They are positively baggy through the hip and thigh, and the bottom opening is likewise huge. There are some thoughtful design elements that allow for significant adjustment, and I *love* the length of the rise. I hate low-rise garments that just fall off me; these sit comfortably at my waist, but are inches too long, even over boots. When they arrived, I took them out for a test walk: a brisk mile in 6 degrees, with a wind chill factor of -14F. I wore them with a thin pair of silk long underwear. I didn't feel impeded by the extra fabric, and they're surprisingly quiet. The fabric and insulation are thin and nonbulky. I didn't feel the wind through the pants at all. My legs never felt cold--but they never felt warm either. In temps this low, it's probably wise to wear a heavier base layer. When I bought them, the only color available was the pink, which is pretty gruesome--a lurid fuchsia that might be comforting to those phobic about avalanches. I was dismayed to find that TODAY I could buy blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Winterbabie79 from Pants the Fit They fit; they are warm; they are great to snowboard in. Could do without pink but hey, the kids can find their mom on the slopes.
