What color ski pants with this jacket?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

 

I just bought this Obermeyer Charger jacket:

What color/colors for pants would you recommend? Obviously, the default choice is black, which goes well with anything and matches. But I'm thinking a contrast would be cool this time, as I've been wearing an all in one black suit for the past several years.

 

I want to look good on the mountain and in photos/videos I intend to take on the slopes. What do you think? Thanks!

I'd say Red

You might also be able to go with a bright yellow, blue, or green. No orange, brown, pink, burgundy, purple.

Red. Do not consider anything else.

I'd take that jacket to a nearby store and try different combinations. Be open to other colors that are not in the jacket already.

Red for sure.  White if you don' mind them always getting dirty and stained.

Being color-coordinated is the most important part of your gear selection after boots (and they should be color coordinated too). The only two colors you can choose here are red or black!!! Especially if you are skiing Aspen like Mr. Obermeyer himself and he has a chance to see you in his clothing..

White or Black will make you nearly invisible to the camera. Buy red pants. Don't over think this or try to get cute. Red.

Perfect pants would be red with black knee pads

Thanks for the comments everyone. I agree - red is the best match here probably.

 

Another option I'm considering is to exchange the jacket for a different color. The store I got it in now has in stock the slate blue model, which I also like a lot.

I'm considering that with black pants.

I would get this one. Less chance of being mistaken for a baddie in a James Bond movie

I like the blue one!  You can wear it with black or grey ski pants.  (disclosure: blue is my favorite color and I wear a blue Arc'teryx shell with black ski pants.)
