Yeah. I got a great pair of high performance long underwear bottoms on sale right after Christmas. They have a built in knee bend adjustment key that you can easily turn while riding the chairlift without having to remove your ski pants. The variable thickness weave in the fabric eliminates that annoying bunching up behind your knees and the cuffs have been designed to be compatible with most of the high performance socks on the market. Tighter weave stretch fabric integrated into the outside of the calves provides that needed extra support when you are tipping and engaging the outside edge of your inside ski during high speed carved turns, and the fabric in the upper leg is reinforced and cut and sewn on a bias to better assist your quadraceps in both high speed turns and during slow wedge turn demonstrations - a real selling point for instructors. There are also some interesting features built into the seat and crotch that I have not yet had a chance to take advantage of due to the abnormally cold winter here in New England.
