Yeah the Arcteryx aren't baggy at all; in fact they are the least baggy looking/fitting pants I tried without feeling constrained (the Snowtastics only look a bit baggier because they pooch out a bit where the top of the side zip ends at the hip, and the design is not shaped/contoured -it's just a "stovepipe"). OTOH they are nearly 2" longer than the Snowtastics (and 3" longer than my current ski pants): the picture is deceiving because I pulled the pants as far down over my boots as possible just before the picture was taken (whereas I let the Snowtastics hang naturally before that picture was taken). I would've tried to live with them if it wasn't also for the stupid bib pockets (or vice versa)...picky, picky. Either way, thanks for the original tip on the Snowtastics because they may be the one's I end up keeping.
