Changabang trousers and skiing

 Hi All

 

I was hoping I could find some people with experience of wearing mountain equipment changabang trousers whilst they have been skiing. I have always worn insulated pants but have just got a bargain on eBay and whilst the description does say they have internal snow gaiters I'm wondering how suitable they are for general skiing. How well do they fit over boots? Are they warm enough with base layer underneath? Can you wear them with normal pants underneath or do they get snug? You know, general comfort for a day on the piste. From what I've already ...

Mountain Equipment Lhotse/Manaslu (2014)

£330.00

FeaturesThe Mountain Equipment Lhotse/Manaslu has been a favourite jacket of mine for years, in part due to the fact that it has the essential features for hill and mountain walks. Primarily you get those all-important three big pockets on the chest, plus a zipped internal pocket. The helmet-compatible hood has a wired peak with face and rear volume adjustment, and ...

Montane Minimus (2014)

£100.00

When good performance and low price are called for, the Montane Minimus has been a popular option for many years. These trousers are made from Pertex Shield, which is a 2.5-layer fabric with good breathability and waterproofness, but it does feel a little clammier than 3-layer fabrics or mesh-lined trousers. The waist is elasticated with a drawcord and there are ...

The North Face Point Five (2014)

£280.00

FeaturesHow many pockets do you really need? The The North Face Point Five has two large and well-positioned chest pockets, but no third pocket anywhere – and I would like a third, to be ideal. There are pit zips provided plus a helmet-compatible hood with wired peak, face and volume drawcords. This is a lighter spec list than some jackets ...

Keela Saxon / Storm (2014)

£75.00

FeaturesAt just 251g (men’s L) the Keela Saxon definitely won’t weigh you down – and that is the big feature here. To save weight, however, it is a little lacking in features. So there are just two body pockets, no external stormflap on the main zip, and no pit zips. But you do get a hood with wired peak, plus ...

£50.00

There is a loose lining inside to improve comfort, while the side zips extend to the waist ...

Regatta Pack-It Overtrouser (2014)

£15.00

At just £15 the Regatta Pack-It is ideal for beginners, those on a tight budget and anyone who keeps their overtrousers in their rucksack most of the year rather than wearing them every trip. The technical specification is less impressive than higher-priced trousers but they’ll still keep you dry. The material is polyester with Isolite waterproof and breathable treatment but ...

£110.00

FeaturesFinding a long jacket isn’t easy, but the Target Dry Element is longer than most, which means you can access the hem pockets below a rucksack waist- or hipbelt.

Mountain Equipment Aeon (2014)

£170.00

FeaturesThe Mountain Equipment Aeon has three main pockets, all taking an OS map, although the chest pocket is a tight squeeze. They’re all mesh-lined – great for extra ventilation and reducing weight, but not so good for staying dry. There are also pit zips for venting. The hood folds to the collar, where it can be secured, and benefits from ...
