There’s something about the Patagonia Untracked Pants that just feels good. The material is soft and flexible. The pants have a high waist and fit in all the right places, while the knees and legs still have plenty of room. You can move in these pants. For women, pants that flatter your curves and still crush it on a steep boot pack are worth every dime. Two long vents that run down the top of your thigh on each leg and have a mesh liner allow you to dump heat quickly (although the mesh gets stuck a lot when you want to zip your vents back up). At a $449 tag price, the Untracked Pants are in the upper echelon of Patagonia’s winter outerwear line, but that price buys you quality that will last forever—as is the Patagonia way. The material is durable, and the inner cuffs around your ankles are reinforced. The pants are also mega waterproof, built with 3-layer Gore-Tex fabric, so you’ll stay dry and ski bell-to-bell even in the harshest of elements. —Julie Brown

    more of her, please. She breaks it down, unlike the illusions big company’s pull to sell a 5000 mm ski jacket that may looks cool but soaks water worse than an cotton sweater. Thanks
