New Women's Snow Pants Brand - Kickstarter

Question for Maria re: measurements. I'm an AU14 but a fairly lumpy one with a bit of a sticky-out tum; my major beef with pants is them digging in the front when I bend. Would you recommend sizing up and adjusting down to take care of this, or is the waistband flexible enough that it's going to move with me so I would buy my normal size?

Hi Eera!

I have a 'pouch tummy' myself.

I think two things to consider - the pant are a mid rise, so sit just under your belly button roughly, so tends to 'hold it all in' so to speak....

The more important measurement is your hips/bum because the adjustability in the waist - so I'd be more leaning towards sticking with a 14.

Given the construction of the pants being made with 4-way stretch material, and having the two stretch panels on each side, they are more flexible and haven't proven to be an issue with digging in so far.

I didn't get pants (I'm in the market for a highly waterproof/breathable insulated bib, but already have 4 pairs of ski pants despite only skiing 20ish days per year) but committed to a hoodie and a bunch of extras (scraper, sticker, keychain) instead! I like the idea of having a softshell hoodie for spring and for general wear.
Thank you for your support - I really appreciate it! :smile:

It's going to be close in terms of making the goal. Remember that no funding happens if the goal isn't reached. I'm hoping that won't be the case. I want a pair of these pants for the 2021-22 season!

Only need three more people to pledge to reach 200 Backers. Hope that can happen today with about a week to go.

Maria did a lot of market research before she started working with a designer to come up with snow pants that would include all the desired features. She got input from a few hundred women according to the article by MissSnowItAll, who covers Australia/New Zealand skiing.

Pledged!

My weird problem with snow pants is the zipper keeps undoing itself an inch or two. Come to think of it, I have this problem with regular pants too. :noidea:

And yes - about 9 hours to pledge if you want to snag a pair, very cheap! :smile:
