2018 Obermeyer Alpinist Stretch Pant 2019 - 2018 Review by A Better Ski

This is the 2018 Obermeyer Alpinist Stretch Pant.  They are a classic style men’s ski pant with excellent craftsmanship and great durability. I liked the way these pants fit and felt and would be comfortable taking them out in most of the cold winter conditions.

Tester: Dan

Size: L

Waterproofing and Breath-ability:   The 2018 Obermeyer Alpinist Stretch Pant has 15,000mm waterproof/breathable 2-way stretch fabric. This level will allow for good weatherproofing for most of your winter conditions. For heavy, wet snowfall, I would take out a different pair of pants. The two inner leg meshed vents gives additional adjust-ability of temperature regulation.

Warmth:  Warmth is provided by high lofting 40-gram synthetic insulation.  This is enough warmth for temperatures down into the freezing range.  Low 20’s and below, better wear some thermal leggings.

Fit:  I liked he way these pants fit my waist. I wear a 34″ and I sat right in the middle of the adjustable waist straps. The length is good for my size and I thought they had excellent mobility,

Features:  CZV™ – Control Zone Ventilation with mesh gussets; Critical seams sealed; Water-resistant powder cuffs; YKK® zipper tricot-lined pockets; Cargo pockets; Seat pockets; Adjustable waist – elastic with hook and loop tabs; YKK® zipper hem gussets; Contoured waist; YKK® zippers; Full-Motion™ articulated knees; YKK® zipper fly with windguard and reinforced snap closure; Reinforced pant hems, inseams, and scuffguards; Belt loops

Bottom Line:  I thought the 2018 Obermeyer Alpinist Stretch Pant was a well made classic ski pant. Good weatherproofing and warmth with the versatility of vents, these pants are a great choice for most winter conditions.  Also, if you’re into having a lot of pocket space, these pants deliver.
