Q:
"How long is your 14 petite. I am 5 foot tall and running into the problem of not being bean pole skinny and then I am short. And the larger the sizes it seems the longer they are...which does not work for me. "

Question by Angie on 12/18/2010 - 6:31 pm
A:
"The inseam is 27.5 inches for the petite. This should work. You are correct that the inseam tends to increase with the size of the pants, but this brand does a good job with the petite sizing. You made a good pick with these. If you have any other sizing questions, give Peter Glenn Customer Service a call at 1-800-818-0946 and we can assist you even more."

Q:
"I cross country ski a lot and will be going to Montana soon. I want a warmer pant than my Sporthills but since I am 5' tall I have few options. I found this AFRC pant in the petite sizes but am wondering if this will be too warm for X-C skiing? "

Question by LittleXCSkier on 12/30/2010 - 1:23 am
A:
"I think they will be just right for you. The waterproofing is really good at 10k, but there is not a tremendous amount of insulation. They will be warm because of the fleece lining, but not too warm. Great choice. Also, this is a great line because they offer petite and long versions."

Q:
"How waterproof are these? I am on the we(s)t coast (Vancouver, BC, Canada) and ski pants need to be WATERPROOF. Usually high end GoreTex is the only thing that works, but nobody makes those in petite sizes. Other important features are vents and pockets."
1 Answers | Answer Question
Question by Jacquie on 2/26/2012 - 1:58 pm
A:
"These are the most waterproof pant we have in petite. These have a 10K waterproofing. Gore-Tex is 30K waterproof however 10K will still keep you really dry in most conditions. These do not have vents however they are not insulated so they will not keep you really warm without layers. These do have pockets with waterproof zippers."

Q:
"I am 5' tall, and weigh 98 lbs. I usually buy petite 0 pants. I want to know if your petite size 2 will fit me.I'm very tiny and short. Also, is this low rise or mid rise? "
1 Answers | Answer Question
Question by Kay on 9/15/2012 - 11:52 pm
A:
"This pant is classified as a low-mid rise, so depending on your body type it could be either. To get the best idea of what size you should be ordering, make sure to check out the measurements on the Sizing Chart. It gives you the waist and hip size for a size 2 so that you can see if that will work for you or not. "

Q:
"I bought the Obermeyer Kristina jacket earlier this season. Will these pants in black coordinate with it? Any opinion on if this brand runs smaller or larger compared to Obermeyer pants. The size chart says slightly larger but the photos look like they run smaller."
1 Answers | Answer Question
Question by Connie on 1/24/2013 - 12:34 pm
A:
"If you got the black Obermeyer jacket and not the pink, the AFRC pants may not match up well. The jacket is a shinny black color, where the pants are a matte black. The pants are and look slimming because it has no insulation in them. Unlike other ski pants that have insulation. "

"I need very warm pant. I did ski in January this year and the temperature was -5F. Will this pant work?"
1 Answers | Answer Question
Question by Ping on 4/2/2013 - 6:06 pm
A:
"This pant does not have insulation in it and it sounds like you may need a pant with insulation if you are looking for something very warm. As you can see, on this pant, we have only given it a warmth rating of 3/10, so not very warm. If you really love this pant, you can always add a Baselayer bottom underneath it to make it warmer. Otherwise, look through our selection of Women's ski pants for something with a higher warmth rating."

Perfect!!   Rated: 5/5
5

These ski pants fit perfectly! I searched for so long trying to find petite ski pants, not an easy job. Came across this site, saw these pants and thought wow, to good to be true. I am only 5'1" and trying to find petite in anything is a tough job. I ordered these pants in size 10 (using the size chart), they arrived very quickly, tried them on right away and they were perfect. Very comfortable, easy to move in, not bulky like some snow pants and most importantly, the length was just as described. I finally have pants that aren't 5 inches too long. If you're petite like me, this is the ski pant you want.

Awesome! Love them!   Rated: 5/5

So far, so good. I've worn them skiing twice and I love them! Petite ski pants? What a dream! Sized up and that was the trick! Awesome, comfy and really cute ski pants. They will last me a long time and no more swish-swish-swish sound when I walk!

The BEST Ski Pants   Rated: 5/5
5

I searched high and low going through I don't know how many pairs of different ski pants for my trip to Breckenridge. I needed petite length AND I'm a curvy girl. These were HANDS DOWN THE BEST ski pants. I was worried about them being warm enough but they were fine even in single digits with a pair of Hot Chillys underneath. And no bulk like you get with traditional ski pants! I ended up wearing these every day. They are a little pricey for me but I would GLADLY pay that again for another pair. They are absolute perfection. I'm between sizes. Ordered both and ended up keeping the smaller size. They have a little bit of stretch to them.
These will NOT fit baggy like lots of other brands. They are pretty form fitting but extremely flattering even on my size 14 curves.

Too flared for short people   Rated: 2/5
2

I bought these hoping that I would look sleek on the slopes
I am 5 foot and 102#, muscular legs. The size 2P was a bit too big though probably would have been fine with expedition weight thermals underneath. But these went back because the bottoms were ridiculously flared. It seemed like the company just didn't pare down the flare for the petites. Even with ski boots. Just looked wide. Not sleek at all. Oh well. Trying some LL Bean petites next. Then will go with the North Face. Maybe back to kids which have been my staple in the past. So much for being 48 years old. I wish more companies would remember that there are some small adults around!

Love them   Rated: 4/5

I really love the feel of these pants. They were too big..but I usually don't get petite sizes so I wasn't sure how to determine the correct size. I am 5'0" and 27 " waist and 36" hips...I went w the 8p just to insure that it wasn't tight in places that I would need room. I'm exchanging them for a 4p to see how they fit! Other than getting my size wrong, I love these pants!

Great price, fast shipping   Rated: 4/5
4

I am 5'2" tall with longer legs (size 2). I first bought the regular length, but they were way too long. The petite length was perfect, not too short like I was afraid of. The waist is a little tight and the legs are a little baggy, but at the price they were exactly what I needed. One thing I would change is all of the black details. I wish they were all white.

great fit, not like stiff robot pants   Rated: 5/5

A little trouble with getting the right size, but these are perfect. The fit is great for my petite size.

Good looking pant   Rated: 4/5

Slightly long for my 4' 11" body but should be okay with ski boots. Really nice quality and warm without bulk.

Stylish Pants   Rated: 5/5

I looked high and low for stylish ski pants that could be used for skiing and apres ski. I finally found them. Very flattering on petite women. I got the chance to test them recently and they were quite warm with another layer underneath.

Perfect for the vertically challenged skier!   Rated: 5/5
5

I am 5'1 3/4" and have had a ridiculously hard time finding a petite ski pant that is warm and does not make me look like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. These pants actually made me look thinner! I live in an area which is very cold and often icy or wet. I can usually get by without any extra layers, however, on those very cold -10 degree nights I add a thin long john type layer. I will always buy AFRC petite.
