2018 Obermeyer Nomad Cargo Pant 2019 - 2018 Review by A Better Ski

The 2018 Obermeyer Nomad Cargo pant is made for the cold.  These pants are well insulated, lack of ventilation and felt very warm . They felt great and are a well crafted ski pant. They had a classic black ski pant look and excellent durability as with all the Obermeyer line.

Tester: Dan

Size: L

Waterproofing and Breath-ability:  The 2018 Obermeyer Nomad Cargo pant has 10000mmm waterproofing making them adequate for most winter conditions. On the warmer days when the snow is coming down heavy, I would take out a different pant since the waterproofing would be lacking and these pants are really warm with no ventilation.

Warmth:  My impression of these pants was that that they were quite warm even though they only have 40gm. insulation. In addition, the lack of ventilation makes these pants strictly for cold conditions and I would also exclude them on touring outings. 

Fit: The 2018 Obermeyer Nomad Cargo pant fit true to size. I had to since the adjustable straps down a little to keep them from falling off my waist. Fully open I would guess that up to a 38″ waits could fit down to a 32″ waist. I did like the way these pants felt and fit.

Features:  Critical seams sealed/ Water-resistant powder cuffs/ YKK® zipper tricot-lined pockets/ Cargo pocket/ Seat pockets/ Adjustable waist – elastic with hook and loop tabs/ Contoured waist/ YKK® zippers/ Full-Motion™ articulated knees/ YKK® zipper fly with windguard and reinforced snap closure/ Abrasion resistant scuff-guards and reinforced pant hems/ Reinforced inseams/Belt loops/ Available in Eased Sizing

Bottom Line:  I like these pants if I knew it was going to be below freezing out all day. For those of you in CO or VT who are used to single digit highs, the 2018 Obermeyer Nomad Cargo pant will keep you warm and comfortable.
