The Armada Union Pant is a pretty standard entry level freestyle pant. It would be good for the casual resort and park skiers that don’t need a bomber pant for everyday.
Armada Union Ski Pant Review
Pant Size: M
Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info
Waterproofing and Breathability: The Armada Union pant has a 10k/10k standard entry level waterproof and breathable fabric. This is pretty standard in this price range, and is perfectly fine for the casual skier that isn’t going to spend a ton of time in wet weather, and isn’t really planning on spending a whole lot of time hiking or boot packing to your favorite runs.
Fit: The Armada Union has a standard fit that is slightly on the loose side. I feel that it is pretty true to size, and is pretty comfortable overall. The medium fit me perfectly fine, but it does have a relaxed fit that caters to freestyle skiers. I think personally I’d size down to the small because I like a slightly more athletic fit.
Warmth: The Armada Union has a mesh lining in the legs and brushed lining in the butt. This isn’t really going to provide a whole lot of insulation, and better suited to those skiers in warm places, or those who don’t mind layering underneath.
Features: The Armada Union has a pretty standard set of features. This includes mesh lined inner leg vents, adjustable waist band, reinforced cuff, and a good number of pockets. I really like the cargo pockets on the legs, and find them great for bringing personal items with me. The hand warming pockets are also perfectly fine. One thing I don’t like is the fake pockets on the backside. I really do like pockets back here, and I really don’t get the idea of placing fake pockets there. Either give me pockets, or don’t.
Bottom Line: The Armada Union is a solid entry level freestyle resort pant. It’s perfectly fine for the casual skier, and offers just enough tech and features to enjoy a day on the snow.
