The Obermeyer Warrior could be a great pant for the skier with the right body type. These pants run really small, but do have a 4-way stretch, and articulated patterning for good mobility. They also have solid waterproof protection.
Obermeyer Warrior Ski Pant Review
Pant Size: 8
Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info
Waterproofing and Breathability: The Obermeyer Warrior is built with a 20k Hydroblock Elite polyester fabric that will provide pretty decent waterproof protection. 20k is starting to get into that upper level, and really only the most serious skiers will find a need for more. For the rest of us, this would perfectly fine for just about every day on the snow. Breathability on these is okay, but definitely more for the resort than backcountry.
Fit: The Obermeyer Warrior does not fit true to size. Our tester is a size 8 in jeans, and has tested out size 8 in several other Obermeyer pants. However, when trying on the Warrior pant in a size 8, our tester could not even button them up. These are designed for skiers with a smaller butt and smaller thighs. If you’re the right body type these could be a very comfortable pant. They have a 4-way stretch material and plenty of articulation for mobility. These will not leave a whole lot of room underneath for layering though.
Warmth: The Obermeyer Warrior has a moderate amount of insulation, and perfectly fine for cold temps. For the extra cold days you’ll probably want a good base layer underneath for extra warmth.
Features: The Obermeyer Warrior has a 4 way stretch, knee articulation, and adjustable waist. The Warrior also has a brushed lining, fleece waist, and reinforced seat and knees for added durability. There is one hand warming pocket with water resistant zippers, and there is a lumbar pocket on the back. I’d like to see a few more pockets, and I’d really like to see some leg vents. Despite these, the Warrior is a solid pant for the resort.
Bottom Line: The Obermeyer Warrior could be a good resort pant for the casual skier with a smaller body type. These fit very tight, but with the right fit, they could be very comfortable and functional. They have solid waterproofing, and a hand ful of skier specific features.
