If you’re looking for a basic, yet very functional pant, look no further than the Winner Winner pant by Powder Room. I’m not very picky when it comes to the pant portion of my schralp outfit but comfort and fit is a must and functionality key.
I’ve never understood ski pants that have pockets that don’t zip (unless it’s the back pockets, because let’s be honest we’re riding lifts and not putting stuff in our back pockets). I don’t find myself using pockets very often, but I have recently with the design of these pants. The side pockets allow you to carry some essentials (a buff and hand warmers personally) without feeling the items when you fall. I mean, I wouldn’t suggest putting sharp objects in your pockets but soft ones go without notice.
Flow-through venting is a must in any versatile pant. I use the vents all the time whether I am skiing a warm day at the resort or skinning in the backcountry. The mesh lining that Powder Room uses does not get caught in the zippers, which is a huge bonus!
The inside waist adjusters ensure you’ll find the perfect fit, however I’d like to reiterate the sizing of these pants. I’m 5’10 and usually buy a large ski pant – mostly for length. The Powder Room pants I received that were larges were too long and too large around the waist. I could’ve made them work but I would’ve looked like a gangster. And maybe that’s your thing. But they were, to me, uncomfortably large. I was nervous that the mediums would be far too tight and short but they fit perfectly!
I haven’t been able to take these pants off since I got them. They’re the great everyday, any day pant. I’m a black pant kind of person but Powder Room has some beautiful and fun colors so be sure to check that out!
