The North Face Women's Shawty Pants
It's been an epic day of one-plank ripping on your new splitboard in the backcountry, but you're not done yet, so cinch up the adjustable waist tabs of your Women's Shawty Pants from The North Face and get down to business. Designed in powder blasting waterproof, breathable, fully seam sealed HyVent 2 layer foxfaille with an lace embossed taffeta lining, you've made all the right jib, bonk and drop moves remaining perfectly dry. As you sit on your butt to seal up the inner thigh vents and StretchVent gaiter then roll over onto the articulated insulated knees to snap the gusset hem and secure the pant-a locks to your TNF Jacket, strategic 60 g Heatseeker Eco fleece at the seat and knee keep you from chilling out. Popping upright, the Shawty Snowboard Pants have been your best friend; well, maybe not best friend, but definitely a really good friend through the thick and thin of the glades, and now you're gonna elevate and levitate. One last dive into the handwarmer zip and thigh pockets in search of your goggle wipe you straight-line the cliff gauntlet like the Millennium Falcon blasting out of the Death Star. With a Chubaka roar your bud's applaud your cliff side exit, and the Shawty's low-rise and neutral fit styling around the waist, athletic fit around the knees, and boot-wide bottom. Not one to rest on your laurels, the skins go on and the Chimney Venting system of your TNF Women's Shawty Pants kicks airflow into gear as you chug-a -ug up to the skyline. Sometimes your cool needs to just flow like body steam in a windless, crystal big mountain landscape.

Great ski pants!
Very comfortable ski pants - and stylish too! Only had the opportunity to wear them once before the skiing season ended - so I can't comment on durability - but overall comfort was very good. I am about 135 lbs/5 ft 8 inches and I ordered a size 10 (which is usually a little big on me in other ski pants) but these fit just right. I love how they flare out a little at the bottom - gives them more style than the average "boxy" ski pant.

Overall good pant- I ordered a small (5'1", 120lbs) which for North Face is usually on the verge of being too big on me, but these pants are more form fitting. The thighs and butt are a bit tighter than I would normally wear, but still very comfy with no loss of movement. The fit is somewhat bell bottom- fitted through hips and thighs with a flare at the ankle. They were too long for me- had to remove 3 inches even with ski boots. The cargo pocket does rub on my thigh (because the pants are tight around my thighs), not a deal breaker and I got used to it. Color is perfect- not too bright.
