Sharp End Pants - Women's is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality pants with a great fit! I am so pleased with the fit and quality of these pants. I have worn them almost daily since purchase, and they are great for personal days skiing, as well as for use on long days of teaching skiing. They are comfortable, and have a nice high rise, ensuring warmth and dryness. It is easy to regulate temperature with the full side zips, and the pockets are placed nicely. The length is great, and there is room for layers underneath. The waist is easy to adjust. They are the best ski pants I have owned. I am 5'6", 150lbs, and athletic/curvy, and I am happy with my choice to order a medium. My only suggestion would be to move the key loop sewn in the pocket to a different location, as I chose to cut mine out due to it getting caught in the zipper on my pocket and being unable to access the contents for half a day. It was a small nuisance, but would not change my decision about purchasing these pants. They are great! But be careful not to get that loop stuck on your zipper!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great material / Bad fit GoreTex is awesome, material feels good and durable; fairly thin (it's a shell!) so they're great for ski touring, a bit colder for downhill skiing, but all you do is add a good pair of base layer (I am often cold by the way!!) Pockets are convenient and well placed, all zippers are easy to use and seem durable. However I am not super happy with the fit, I didn't realise these are high waist, so they get up to the middle of my back and belly which I don't like. They move "down" more easily and create some sort of pocket of air on my backside; I ordered the insulated/thicker equivalent of the Mission ski pants last year which are a way better fit, and lower waist, but don't have the full leg length zipper. I ordered a size Small both times but the fit is totally different (I am 127 pounds, 5.5 feet, fairly athletic), so I would recommend this to someone as long as they like wearing high waist pants without suspenders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than anticipated Absolutely love these pants! I am quite small at 5'1" approx. 110 lbs so they fit quite large on me, but I almost prefer my snow clothes to fit comfortably large. They keep me super dry even in the wettest Coast Mountain conditions. The full length leg zip and gaiters are fantastic and the built in belt is great as well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value These pants are great. I'm usually a medium and I went with the Small and happy I did so. the pockets could be a wee bit bigger to allow for comfortably wearing transceiver in pocket.
