Bergans Of Norway shell vs insulated pants

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi, I want to buy a Bergans Sirdal pants but I´m between shell and insolated versions. I will use them in Alpine resort ski and I would like to use them all the season in coldest days and in warmers days.

 

My two options are:

 

A) Bergans sirdal Shell + X-bionic radiactor pants baselayer.  

 

Pros: best breathability

         better temperature in warmer days thanks to the fantastic thermal regulation of X-bionic radiactor

 

Cons: Maybe I will go cold in coldest days?

 

 

Bergans Sirdal shell version: http://catalog.bergans.eu/clothing/Hosen/Shell/Sirdal-Pnt-Br-SeaBlue-Citrus-L-158668-p0000969650

 

 

 

B) Bergans sirdal insulated without baselayer pants

 

Pros: good for coldest days thanks to the primaloft insulation

 

Cons: Will I be overheated on warmer days? Tha pants have zips to help refrigerantion but I don´t now if it will be enough to ski in warmer months.

 

 

Bergans Sirdal insulated version: http://catalog.bergans.eu/clothing/Hosen/Shell/Insulated/Sirdal-Ins-Pnt-Br-SeaBlue-Citrus-XL-158741-p0000971271

 

 

What do you think? what option is better to ski in all conditions?

 

 

Thanks!

My wife skis in the Bergan Shells in Colorado and loves them.  Shell pants are much more versital than insulated.

Shells are cold, insulated warm. You want widest range, probably shell.

Nothing like insulated when it's cold though.

Buy for what you do more of. Cold or warmer. If you've got shells now, get the insulated.

I've never had a problem with shells plus a base layer. I use different weight baselayers depending on temp and if it gets really cold  i use a light base layer, a fleece mid layer and a shell. You can always add a layer, but if the insulated pants are too warm there's nothing you can do about it.
