Used these during a spring skiing weekend in Utah. Perfect with just a pair of long underwear underneath in a temperature range that stretched from 60, calm, and sunny to 30, windy, and snowy. Leg vents could use some mesh underneath, but the edges over the zips help keep the snow out unless you really open the vents up to the half thigh length. They are a bit baggy in the legs, but I never felt they constricted movement on a full range of runs. I also never felt the vecro scratching. With the light smoke flash jacket you can snap the back seal of the coat through loops on the pants, helping to keep out the cold and snow. Great gear for an athletic, on piste skier.
