2117 of Sweden Romme Pant Review
Pant Size: M
Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info
Waterproofing and Breathability: The 2117 of Sweden Romme Pant has a 10k/10k waterproof and breathable rating. We haven’t had much experience with the Romme Pant so it’s hard to say how well the pant will keep you dry. However, a 10k rating is pretty standard for most entry level pants, and is what the industry considers to be waterproof. These should keep you dry in a light snow or even rain, but they won’t be great f or long-term exposure to wet weather. If you plan on skiing in a wet place all of the time, these aren’t the pants for you. However, if you’re a casual skier that only gets out a few times a season (mostly in dry conditions), these will hold up just fine.
Fit: The 2117 of Sweden Romme Pant runs a bit on the small side. I would recommend sizing up at least a size for the best fit. I am typically between a small and medium, and I’d say the medium fit much better than the small in these 2117 pants.
Warmth: The 2117 of Sweden Romme Pant has light insulation for added warmth. These aren’t designed for the coldest days on the mountain, but great for mildly cold temps. For a person that runs warm (like I do), these would probably be just enough insulation for all but the extreme cold. With the right base layer underneath, I could easily use these pants all season long, including those cold mid-winter days and nights. If you run on the colder side, you’ll either need more layers underneath, or a different, more insulated pant.
Features: The 2117 of Sweden Romme Pant is a pretty standard casual resort pant. It does have reinforced hem for better durability, adjustable waist tabs for better fit, and articulated knees for better mobility. In addition the Romme Pant has two hand-warming pockets, and inside zip ventilation with mesh. You really wouldn’t expect much more for the price range, and we found most features were perfectly fine for the casual skier.
Bottom Line: The 2117 of Sweden Romme Pant is on par with any other standard entry level pant. It has moderate insulation, industry standard entry level waterproof/breathable tech, and a few resort specific features. It would be perfectly fine for the casual skier that’s only getting out several times a season.
