The North Face Sickline pant is another great everyday ski pant that offers some pretty solid waterproofing at a decent price. The North Face Sickline pant is made with The North Face HyVent Alpha 2L, which is the best of the HyVent fabrics. It’s pretty solid waterproofing that is usually hard to find in this price range. The North Face Sickline pant fits pretty true to size, and offers plenty of space for layering. The North Face Sickline pant comes in a short, regular, or long, which is really nice when trying to find the right fit. It also has a stretch nylon lining that helps with fit and movement. This is one of the best North Face shells for this price, and it can make a fantastic everyday ski pant even in the wetter climates.

Turn On’s: Active fit jackets that fit well around my chest and torso, but don’t restrict movement. Size S Pants that have a bit more room in my thighs, that way I can actually use my pockets. And of course getting first chair with 12” of fresh powder on the mountain.
Turn Off’s: Size S Jackets that are too tight, and Size M jackets that are too loose in the waist. I really don’t like a loose waist that can allow cold air in, and I don’t like having to cinch down the waist. I also don’t like jackets that ride up when I’m skiing, The jacket should stay in place. Pants that fit too tight in the thigh, and I can’t use my pockets. Crowds in the mountains, and not being able to find a place to park in at the trailhead or ski resort.
