Lib Tech Throwdown 2015 Review by A Better Ski

The Lib Tech Throwdown pant is a comfortable soft shell with enough features for you to enjoy a day on the slopes. It has a slim fit, but seems to fit a bit bigger than you would think.

Lib Tech Throwdown Soft-Shell Pant Review


Tester: Matt

Pant Size: S

Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info

Waterproofing and Breathability: The Lib Tech Throwdown pant is a 10k/10k/ waterproof and breathable soft-shell. This is pretty standard at the entry-level but will provide enough wet weather protection for a light snow. Breathability is also entry level, but works well with the soft-shell material. Soft-shells do tend to breathe much better than hard shells or insulated hard shells, so this is no surprise. It still wouldn’t be great for doing a lot of hiking, but for ripping around the resort it will be okay.

Fit: The Lib Tech Throwdown is a slim fitting pant, but it seems to run a little on the big side. I found the waist to be slightly loose, and I had to cinch down the waist straps pretty tight. The legs are also slightly loose for a slim fit, but I didn’t mind the extra room. These fit much more like a regular pant than a slim fit, so if that’s what you’re looking for you’ll want to look else-where.

Warmth: The Lib Tech Throwdown isn’t the warmest pant, but would be great in mild climates. The soft-shell outer layer does provide a small amount of warmth, and there is a soft liner on the inside. There is room for layering underneath when you need to.

Features: The Lib Tech Throwdown is a very comfortable soft-shell with moderate waterproofing and breathability. It’s really a solid entry level soft-shell for those who prefer soft-shells over hard-shells and don’t need anything super technical. It’s a pretty minimalist pant with a few well-placed pockets, and some small inner leg vents.
