Armada Tradition 2015 Review by A Better Ski

The Armada Tradition Pant is a solid no frills resort pant for the casual skier. They have the traditional Armada fit that is definitely on the loose side. They are true to fit, but the legs are quite roomy, and quite long. This is nice if you want the extra room for layering, and also gives you plenty of mobility. I’ll admit I’m not biggest fan of the baggy fit, but I know plenty of folks that are. The Armada Tradition pants are waterproof, but not great in really wet weather. The same can be said for breathability. When you start to heat up, you can use the large leg vents to dump heat, but these probably wouldn’t be a great backcountry pant. The outer shell is made from ripstop polyester, and feels quite durable. The hem is reinforced with Schoeller Keprotec fabric too keep your boots from ripping the bottom of the pants. The Armada Tradition pant has plenty of pockets for your granola bars and trail maps. The front cargo pocket is pretty deep, and definitely has a lot of room. The other side has a vertical leg pocket that is interesting, but works. Overall the Armada Tradition pant is a solid resort pant for skiers. It’s a great park pant, and offers plenty of room for movement and layering. They are not the most waterproof or breathable pant, but great for those who ski in colder dry areas.
