Slim fit (not skinny) pants?
 
Looking for some high quality, slim-fit (not baggy, not skinny either) pants for around $200. What are my options when it comes to best quality/waterproofing?

As for colours, I'm pretty easy. A nice selection of colours to choose from is always a bonus.

Thanks <3

Try Westbeach from Vancouver. I've got a pair and they're my slimmest pants. I actually find them too slim I prefer a semi-baggy pant.

Stoic Bombshell Bib for $143 (down from $240). They can be converted to a regular snowpants as the bib can be removed via zipper. They aren't baggy, but neither are they skinny restrictive either. They have a 20k waterproof rating.

Comes in Yellow, Blue, Black and Orange color. Here is a video of my demonstrating the slim but not restrictive fit of the Orange Stoic Bib. These are my favorite pair of snowpants in a long time. My previous pair of pants were Burton AK, Burton Hover 3L (which sell for over $300!), Sessions Transformer,... I forget before that and all of those tore or ripped after a season or two, I've had my Stoics for 2 seasons and they are still going storng. If you buy from Backcountry.com, you can return them if they ever spring a leak or tear up for a full refund. Backcountry.com ships internationally (just noticed you are UK based).

Holden makes a few pants in standard fit that are a great tailored slim fit. They also make a skinny fit in those same pants, so you want to avoid those.

Airblaster's stuff does rock.

Also, you can find some pretty nice and very cheap Nike pants from the last year. I have a pair of slim fitting Nike Highcrest and they are my favorite of all of my pants. Got them for like 100$ new - pretty nice for 10,000/10,000 rating.

Last i checked, Nike fully tapes all seams too so that's always a plus :thumbsup:

Look intot he 686 Reserved Twill or Reserved Raw pant. I have them now and they fit like regular boot cut jeans not baggy and not skinny, but perfect in my opinion. I get alot alot alot of compliments on them from people on the slopes and always ask me what they are.
