The North Face Thermoball Pant is a solid everyday ski pant for those who want a little more warmth. The North Face Thermoball Pant fits pretty true to size, and has a standard fit. It does come in a short, regular, and long which is really nice. I have a pretty skinny waist, but my legs aren’t that short, so often times I have a hard time finding a waist that fits and legs that are long enough. Kudos to The North Face for the options! The North Face Thermoball Pant insulation is actually really warm, and I never need to layer much underneath. It has several pockets for storage, and vents for dropping heat when you need to. The North Face Thermoball Pant is a fantastic pant for those who are casual skiers and looking for a bit of warmth.

Turn On’s: Active fit jackets that fit well around my chest and torso, but don’t restrict movement. Size S Pants that have a bit more room in my thighs, that way I can actually use my pockets. And of course getting first chair with 12” of fresh powder on the mountain.
Turn Off’s: Size S Jackets that are too tight, and Size M jackets that are too loose in the waist. I really don’t like a loose waist that can allow cold air in, and I don’t like having to cinch down the waist. I also don’t like jackets that ride up when I’m skiing. Pants that fit too tight in the thigh, and I can’t use my pockets. Crowds in the mountains, and not being able to find a place to park in at the trailhead or ski resort.
