Having owned a pair of North Face ski trousers, which at £120 were thin and left me cold, I decided to pay the extra for what I hoped were a warmer pair. I wasn't disappointed. They really are a quality pair of ski trousers, which looking at the quality of the outer material, should last me years. The fit and cut of the trousers are really smart and the sizing was perfect, having ordered the small and being 5ft 7' tall and 31-32 inch waste. Well worth the extra money.
