Armada Harlaut Insulated Ski Pant Review
Pant Size: S
Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info
Waterproofing and Breathability: The Armada Harlaut has a Megarex 2-layer membrane that actually provides a solid amount of waterproofing for the price. It’s still not top of the line, but at 15k it will offer plenty of wet weather protection for the average resort skier. They will hold up just fine to a light snow, and will even be okay in a light rain. The Harlaut also has a decent amount of breathability, but these are designed more for ripping around the resort than hiking to the peak.
Fit: The Armada Harlaut has a relaxed fit that is true to size and very comfortable. I also like that for being a loose freestyle fit, they actually didn’t look or feel overly baggy. I had plenty of extra room for moving in any direction, but I never felt like I was swimming in the pant.
Warmth: The Armada Harlaut has 40g of heavy insulation. These feel pretty warm, and would probably be enough for all but the coldest days on the mountain. For me, I’d probably only wear these when it was really cold because I tend to run a bit warm. When things do heat up, they have mesh lined inner leg vents to dump excess heat.
Features: The Armada Harlaut is stylish and functional. They have moderate waterproofing, and provide decent warmth. They aren’t the most breathable pant, but if your skiing in a colder climate, and not hiking all over the mountain, they will be just fine.
