Returned from my recent trip which reintroduced me to the fine sport of skiing in over 10 years.
Everything was great equipmentwise, with the exception of my cheaper Columbia pants which had no breathability and created the usual steam room issues.
I was wondering if I could get some good recommendations for pants around the 2 bill mark. It seems that takes a lot of the usual suspects out of the running (Arcteryx, etc).
I'm 6'0" 185, 33in waist 32 inseam, so no typical fit issues. My best guess is size M for the most part.
The one caveat is I would prefer a reddish color, as I got complaints from my fellow skiers that I was hard to spot on the mountain with my mostly grey/black setup. Not a requirement, but a preference for sure.
Looking in my price range, I seem limited to non-gore fabrics with the exception of some Marker (Gamma) pants. Seem to be finding DNA (Munchie, Louie Louie....what's the difference?), TNF (Rockefeller, Freedom), etc.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
