On my first wearing, the fabric ripped at the ankle when it snagged on a ski brake, Nothing sharp, no puncture, just a right angled rip, I wear a Mistral ski jacket I've had for 35 years - no tears - ever! And my 7-year old Obermeyer ski pants have also never ripped. Shockingly fragile for such expensive ski pants.
I’m enjoying skiing in these pants! They are warm, comfortable and stylish. I would buy them again!
