Tall Women’s Ski Pants

I’ve been meaning to post about my new tall women’s ski pants since November now, and am finally getting around to it! I bought the updated, new and improved Eddie Bauer Powder Search Insulated Pants II last fall. First worn in Montana while visiting our friends, I made snow angels in them, went sledding, and hiked in Galcier¬† National Park with them. In December I wore them sledding, and in January I wore them cross country skiing. So, I’ve gotten some good use out of them and now have enough fodder for a review. ūüôā

Product review

The last pair of ski pants I had were fine, but they were too big because I bought a pair of men’s just for the length! I typically need a 35″ inseam for jeans and this pair of tall women’s ski pants has a 34.5″ inseam length. (You can also get these in a petite 29.5″ inseam and a regular 31.5″ inseam length.) They are waterproof and insulated. I wore a base layer underneath and stayed pretty warm.

The thing I liked best about these ski pants was the built-in gaiters. What a cool concept! I’ve never had this feature in a snow pant before. So the bottom of the leg has an inside gaiter you can pull over the top of your boots. It fits snug because of the elastic and keeps snow out! After you pull the gaiter over your boots, you pull the outer layer of the pants over the top. No one knows you have gaiters underneath. I think this feature is genius!

The only thing I don’t like about these pants is the size. They fit me well enough and have an adjustable waist, but the legs are still a little bigger than I’d like. The smallest tall women’s size that Eddie Bauer makes in these is a medium and I guess I really need a small.

Other than that, I consider these tall girl approved for skiing and playing in the snow! I’m sure they’d be great for snowshoeing and snowboarding as well.

Athleta Promo Code + Tall Pants

It’s a new Athleta¬†promo code, everyone! If you like shopping at Athleta¬†like I do, you know the sales and special offers are few and far between. Well here’s a great offer for $25 off $150 or $50 off $250! Just use the¬†Athleta¬†promo code ADVENTURE at checkout. Wondering what to buy? I love my Athleta Stripe Linen Pants¬†pictured below and wrote a review on them here. They have a mid rise, relaxed leg, and come in 3 different inseam lengths: 30″ inseam for petite women, 32″ inseam for regular length-legged ladies, and 35″ inseam for tall women.

I also have the 35″ inseam Athleta Snow Cruiser Pants¬†that I actually got to use several times this year because we had multiple snow days in Seattle! Crazy. And I also have the¬†Athleta Polartec Power Stretch Pant¬†in a 35″ inseam that keeps me warm all fall, winter, and spring. (I’m a cold body.) I’ve also got a couple other Athleta¬†workout pants, so you can see how much I love this brand. ūüôā It’s so hard to find workout, ski, and lounge pants in a 35″ inseam, so I will be forever loyal as long as they keep that as their default tall inseam length!

Anyway, this Athleta promo code offer for $25 off $150 or $50 off $250 ends May 22, 2017. Restrictions apply. Get free shipping on orders of $50 or more and free returns on every order.
