"Pants ran large"

The pants themselves look great. I ordered the Medium for my 6'2" son (33 x 32 jeans). He is swimming in them. I can only guess that the size chart is inaccurate.

"Poor Quality / High Price"

This is a great looking ski jacket, the fit is perfect and it is warm. The zippers are extremely stiff, the second time I used it the little rubber zipper tab for the inside pocket fell off. The third time I used the zipper, the main zipper tab broke off in my hand. Not long after that, the KARBON label on the left arm started to peel. The main sizing label on the inside of the jacket is half peeled off and last week I noticed a hole in the jacket where the stitching came apart on the right arm vent. Did not expect this from a high priced, supposedly "quality" jacket.

"Faulty Zippers"

First time I put it on and tried to zip it, the zipper broke off in my hand. All other zippers are very stiff (poor quality) though I have had many Karbon jackets in the past and they have always been superior quality.

"See lots of these pants at ski races - for good reason!"

My son uses these pants at ski races. He says they are very comfortable, and they are easy to move in. They definitely serve their purpose of keeping him warm on cold, windy days with easy removal to his speed suit just prior to racing. The overalls are very useful when it comes to putting these on and taking them off. The only drawbacks were getting the Zippers to operate smoothly in the beginning, and the super "grippy" Velcro on the sides. It keeps the pants wind resistant, but can get in the way for fast removal. Overall, these are a great buy.

"Earth pants for rain"

I ordered this just in case we were to get more rain. I have to work outside so I needed a good warm pair of insulated and waterproof pants. I usually don't buy items like these over the net, but I couldn't find any locally. They arrived quickly and I really didn't even get a chance to try them on before putting them to the test. I didn't wear any waterproof boots or they might have been better in the inseam department. I wear 30 and they were a little long, as they dragged on the pavement. The stretch inner cuffs seemed to be out of place for me, but with snow boots on and more than likely 6 to 8 inches of snow they would come in very handy. As you can probably tell by now, I did not buy these for snowboarding or skiing. There is no inside opening to get to your jeans or pants, so you have to unzip and unsnap to get to your jeans, which was a bummer for me. I wore them in weather that didn't get above 35 but with consistent rain fall. So I have no foundation for anything that would say they will do a good job for anything that they were intended for. The elastic straps were easy to use and not that hard to maintain a steady pull, in order to keep them in place. Pockets are zippered, so if you store anything there there won't be a chance of the items falling out. But the down side to that is that more than likely you will have to take gloves off to unzip. The zippered legs are okay, but still had to take off my shoes, to be able to put them on. I'm 6'1 and around 200 lbs., and they had enough room for me. There is adjustments to tighten up the waist if so needed, and two zippered areas on each inner thigh. I assume that is to allow cool off. All in all, a good pair of insulated pants. I believe I will get lots of good use out of them.

"Snug fit, but love it. Great value and great-looking comfortable"

I'm very happy with this fleece, especially at this price. However it does fit me pretty snug, consistent with my fit of other Karbon gear. I'm 5'8, 195#, so I teder on the larger side of a large. This just barely fits me well. If you're any bigger than I am, I would suggest an XL. I've worn it over a t-shirt only, wearing anything more under it would make it too tight. Otherwise, I like it's style and quality.

"Size runs small, but otherwise a great shirt"

Quality and style were great like all Karbon outerwear. However size was off, it runs on the smaller side. I generally wear large undershirts, shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, etc. This fit me very snug just a bit too snug to be comfortable, so I had to return it. Because I have somewhat wider than average shoulders and I'm not grossly overweight, but am far from washboard abs, my chest and abdominal area was pretty tight too. If you have a slender and/or athletic fit build and wear large, this may work; but otherwise I suggest trying XL.

"I Like The Jacket"

I've used the jacket once so far for skiing in temperatures around 30 degrees. The jacket fit me well, loved how the shoulders allow for much free movement and the large front zipper was easy to zip and unzip, also quite rugged. The shoulders fit me much better and the front zipper was MUCH better-performing than a new Spyder ski jacket I tried on a week earlier. I was expecting my Karbon jacket though to be thicker with insulation. I'd been a little disappointed regarding that. I'm not sure yet how the jacket will perform regarding warmth, haven't tried it yet for colder-weather skiing with base layers underneath. The jacket seemed wind-proof the day I had gone skiing with it recently and I only had a long-sleeve undergarment shirt underneath. All is good so far..

"The Best"

Unmatched quality. Great race warm-ups. Love the shell material.

"Worth the money, excellent ski jacket."

I purchased this jacket for the opening weekend at Snowshoe. I was replacing an older jacket that just didn't have a lot of features. This jacket was warm and, more importantly, dry. I wore this with a thin base layer and a light shirt. I was warm and dry with winds in the 10 - 20 mph range and temperatures as low as the teens. Plenty of pockets to carry everything I need and when I got to hot just undid the arm vents to cool down. The ski instructors even commented on how they liked my jacket better than the ones Snowshoe supplied them. Most other jackets with similar breathability and waterproof were at least a $100 more.
