Hi there, I'm a new skiier looking to buy some pants. I see that most of the ones I'm finding have inside thigh mesh ventilation zips, but I found a pair for a pretty good price that has vents on the outside of the thighs. Are these significantly less effective? Which do you prefer? It just seems an odd place to me!
The other part of my question is pretty self explanatory I guess! They are rated at 7000mm waterproof (and 5000g breathable), do you think this is enough? I just want to be sure I'm not going to wind up with a wet ass sitting around on wet/icy chairlifts / slipping over! I don't foresee myself skiing in heavy thunderstorms :P
