"Great ski pants"

I was skiing in these Karbon ski pants at 15°F using single base layer and it was warm enough. The next day I skied for 3 hours under moderate rain and 35&def;F. I felt comfortable with the same base layer at both temperatures and didn't have to use ventilation zippers at 35. Underneath stayed dry after rain exposure. The pants are light and sturdy. I'm considering getting new ski jacket from Karbon.

"Good looking jacket"

This is a good looking ski jacket by Karbon. My son loves the day-glo orange. The zipper is a little temperamental, but otherwise a great buy.

"Has potential - but flops in some areas."

I received my Karbon Chromium ski jacket today - black with white shoulders and green accents. I was really hoping for this jacket to be an ACE but it suffers in several areas.

I have a 42 inch chest and I bought a size large, I found the jacket was too large across the midsection, even with a layer underneath. But the arms fit nice, as well as the shoulders. I wish there was a draw cord at the waist of the jacket so it would fit snug. I worry about the strength of the mesh fabric and the interior pockets, it seems like only a single stitch was used so I am worried about them holding expensive goggles or smart phones. I think this jacket is great for someone who needs a large size and skis infrequently. The jacket looks fancy, the colors are racy and the exterior fabric is thick quality. It is also a warm jacket. I like the helmet-compatible, removable hood, you barely notice it's there. The pop-out pass window is nice however I like the pass window pocket on sleeve better. Unfortunately, I have to return it due to the fit.

"Warm and comfortable"

The fabric on this Karbon jacket is soft and flexible, making it very comfortable and "quiet" for a waterproof jacket. We ski in the northeast where it's typically below zero wind chill. This jacket kept my son warm and happy. Though, I deducted one star for the broken zipper tab which we remedied with a pull.

"Karbon Slider Ski Pant (Boys)"

These are my sons only ski pants, and I was concerned because he is hard on everything. He loved them, and they held up. All zippers still working, no seams splitting, or rips and tears. He really liked them and the color. I think you will find these to be a great purchase too.

"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.

Editor's Note: This product is from 2013. As of 2014, Karbon has replaced their zippers to correct the problem.

"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.
