Orage pants

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey all,

Ok - I have never ever skied in my life.


My wife tells me we're going skiing this winter, and that I had to go out and buy clothes.


So I got an Orage jacket, some Rossignol gloves, and I was left looking for pants -


I grabbed Orage Brody pants (purple) to get out of the store as quick as possible. I kept the receipt because I had a feeling I would change my mind about the color.

The pants themselves feel fine, they're quite thick, and I expect to fall over a lot so this is a good thing. But the look of them, is a bit, I dunno, emo?


Anyway, I found a pair of Orage Benjamin pants online that I much prefer fashion-wise, and am thinking of making the switch, they're about the same price


But from the description I think the Benjamin is maybe just a very thin layer, and needs something underneath?


Anyway my question is - and I know fashion isn't important and maybe I'll get flamed for this - but if I switch to the Benjamins will I need to add another layer underneath? Anyone who has owned both and can compare the two for me? Any advice would be appreciated.

It depends on where you are skiing and how cold it is. If you are doing some serious mountain cold skiing youll want a layer of fabric inbetween your legs and the shell of your pants.


If you are skiing in warmer weather you can probably get away with just a shell for your pants.

Those pants bring a lot of things to mind but emo isn't on the list. You'll at least need a base layer. I used to use close fitting nylon mesh workout type pants over the base layers. Just avoid cotton, period.

I just wear a pair of under armor cold gear pants with a pair of shorts under my ski pants and I've been out on days that had a 40 below wind chill and below zero temps for a high and my legs were fine.  I've worn the same outfit on days that were in the mid to high 20's and didn't have a problem either.  Activity plays a big role in how warm you are as well
