Lib Tech Kraftsmen Pant 2015 Review by A Better Ski

The Lib Tech Kraftsmen pant is a decent pant with a “work” look and feel. They have a durable outer shell and fleece lined knees and butt. They also have solid waterproofing, and would be a good pant for those who want that rugged look and a solid performing pant.

Lib Tech Kraftsmen Pant Review

Tester: Matt

Pant Size: S

Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info

Waterproofing and Breathability: The Lib Tech Kraftsmen pant has a 15k/10k waterproof and breathable membrane. This is a good, but not great membrane for skiers that might see a little bit of wet weather here and there. These won’t be a great pant for really wet climates that see a lot of wet days, but perfectly in drier areas that may see occasional wet snow. They aren’t a very breathable pant, but okay for those just ripping around the resort.

Fit: The Lib Tech Kraftsmen pant has a loose freestyle fit that is true to size. The waist fits perfectly fine, and the legs run on the baggy side. This is a great fit for freestyle skiers that need the extra mobility of the loose legs.

Warmth: The Lib Tech Kraftsmen pant is not insulated, but does have a fleece liner on the knees and butt. This offers a little bit more warmth than a non-lined shell, but won’t be great for really cold days. There is plenty of room underneath for layering on the bitterly cold days.

Features: The Lib Tech Kraftsmen pant is a solid non-technical shell with just enough features for a fun day on the snow. It has a loose freestyle fit, Plenty of pockets, and a decent amount of waterproofing for drier days. It also has a “work tool” loop that is probably more for aesthetics than function, but could be used to carry gear if you wanted to.
