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.
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 $300!), Sessions Transformer,... I forget before that and all of those tore or ripped after a season or two, I've had my Stoics for 2 seasons and they are still going storng. If you buy from Backcountry.com, you can return them if they ever spring a leak or tear up for a full refund. Backcountry.com ships internationally (just noticed you are UK based).
Also, you can find some pretty nice and very cheap Nike pants from the last year. I have a pair of slim fitting Nike Highcrest and they are my favorite of all of my pants. Got them for like 100$ new - pretty nice for 10,000/10,000 rating.
Last i checked, Nike fully tapes all seams too so that's always a plus
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.
