Columbia Millennium Blur II 2015 Review by A Better Ski

The Columbia Millennium Blur II is a great choice for the casual skier looking to up there game a bit. It has Columbia’s Omni-Tech waterproof/breathable shell that offers good protection in a light snow. The active fit is a bit more conforming, and our tester found it a bit tight in the thighs, but Columbia added a stretch fabric to the shell allowing for better movement and mobility. This also makes the Columbia Millennium Blur II pant a little bit more comfortable and less restrictive. Another nice addition to the Columbia Millennium Blur II is the waterproof zippered pockets. This helps make this pant a bit more resistant to any leaks and helps keep you dry on the slopes. The Omni-Heat insulation is quite warm and often only a light base layer is needed. The Columbia Millennium Blur II is a good pant for any casual skier that wants the added comfort and mobility of the stretch panels as well as the warmth of Omni-Heat. The waterproofing is still middle of the road, but with fully taped seams and waterproof zippers Columbia has done a nice job in ensuring there are no leaky spots.

Pant Size Tried – M

Cindy’s Specs:
Normal Specs– 5’4”, 150 lbs,
Upper Body Specs – 36” Chest, Torso Length 18” (collar bone to pant button), Shoulder Width Approx 16.5”, Arm Length 18.5” (pit to wrist)
Lower Body– 29” Waist, 41” Hips, 29.5” Inseam,  26” Thigh
Turn On’s: Size M Pants that have a bit more room to fit my thighs and big butt, but fit well in the waist.  That way, not only can I utilize my pockets, I can also ride freely and comfortably on the hill.
Turn Off’s: Size M Pants that fit too tight in the thigh so I can’t use my pockets but so loose in the waist they fall down and I get snow in my pants.
