Women’s Bugaboo™ Pant is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 113.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Short is Perfect! So happy to have found snow pants offered in a shorter length! I'm 5'3" and the Short is a perfect fit! Long enough to get over ski/snow boots, but not so long that I have to fold, roll, or just let them drag on the ground. These are also a little slimmer than other snow pants I've had, but I love that they still allow for ample movement! Definitely my new favorite pants!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lean Fit + Easy movement Love the fit of these pants! They are my favorite by far. They're well insulated to keep moisture out and warmth in. I enjoy the lean cut so that it's easier to move and you don't feel so puffy or stiff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect ski pants I already had one Columbia Bugaboo pants in sea salt color, and decided to buy a different color because those pants just perfect for skiing. They are very warm, and at the same time very light and not heavy. My first pants were medium size, and it felt as if they were just a little bit loose, they would still fit well. I was wrong. Do not buy size up. I tried Large size, and I was literally swimming in them. So, I returned them, and bought my medium size in bright plum color, and the fit is perfect. For the reference I am 5.6, 150lb.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Snow pants It's a nice product however the sizing chart is quite off. I bought an XL according to the sizing chart and it was more like a 1X

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peformed Great! As a novice snowboarder, these pants saved me! It was a warm winter and these pants kept me dry on a slushy day!
Date published: 2017-03-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and durable Great pair of snow pants. Kept my legs dry and warm through full days of skiing in a snowstorm. The fit is a little on the large side through but medium worked well for wearing layers underneath. The length was perfect for putting over snowboots/ski boots (Im 5'3 ordered short)
Date published: 2017-03-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't fit These pants run small, I usually wear a small and ordered the medium and they were too tight in the thighs. They fit but were too tight to squat or ski in. The insulation was a lot thicker than I thought it would be, which made them kind of bulky. For the price, it was a good deal but with no side vents and the the tightness through the thighs, they didn't work for me.
Date published: 2017-01-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2017-01-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2017-01-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-12-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-12-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-11-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-08-23
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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#.
Date published: 2016-02-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-02-12
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too small Loved these snow pants. Great quality and awesome color. Size ran small.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
Date published: 2016-01-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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
Date published: 2016-01-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-01-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-01-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2015-12-04
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2015-12-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2015-10-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
Date published: 2015-02-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
Date published: 2015-01-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2015-01-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2015-01-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
Date published: 2015-01-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!).
Date published: 2015-01-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2014-12-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
Date published: 2014-11-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
