Re: Built-in gaitors in ski pants. Do they work?

For most skiing you will never miss them but I have used them when I needed to ventilate. I could roll up the outer pant above my boot and the gaiter had ventilating mesh that let heat out and kept snow from getting in. I'd leave it like that for the up and down and never had a strap under my boot ...

Re: Built-in gaitors in ski pants. Do they work?

Ok, I think I understand now... maybe. If the gaitor is attached to the boot, when your foot sinks in the snow, that part of the pant is not pushed up by the snow which would otherwise let snow inside the boot. If it isn't attached, the gaitor would make little difference. Sound about right? If so, ...

Re: Built-in gaitors in ski pants. Do they work?

Thanks, Looseheel. Good idea about leaving enough material to reattach if wanted. Lilcliffy - Thanks. I understand that they are supposed to help but in looking at them, I don't see how they would actually work. Both the gaitor and bottom of the pant are to be worn on the outside of the boot, correc...

Built-in gaitors in ski pants. Do they work?

I have a pair of Patagonia Mixed Guide's pants with built-in gaitors. I have yet to wear these pants. I look at the gaitors, wondering if they are effective enough to justify their extra weight. I'd like to cut them out... but not if they actually work. They don't fit snugly around my boots. Not eve...

Re: Did Marker make good ski pants?

I have a pair of Marker ski pants that have lasted for years. I tend to wear soft shell pants most of the time, but these are great full waterproof pants. They breath about like the original Goretex - so pretty decent unless your skinning up and sweating a lot. Thanks! I will be skinning up...but, ...

Re: Alpina 1550 vs Alpina Alaska: Are the sizes consitant between the two?

Got'em! And man, they are some nice looking boots...and comfy too...well, as comfy as a set of boots can be anyway. The fit seems great, as far as I can tell. Looking forward to using them.

Re: Did Marker make good ski pants?

Keep them at least until you try them. I'm sure they're at least water repellent and that pretty much is all you need. Weather they are breathable or not you'll still be ventilating by unzipping. Thanks. That's the direction I was thinking too. Hope they vent well. My Goretex Marmot pants have no v...
