misleading recommended usage
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: medium
I got really cold last winter on a mountain pass and saw one of the guides pulling removable shorts on top of his ski pants. I also saw him using the same shorts in a hut later and thought what a brilliant idea. Since then i am looking for similar product to be sold in the USA. I was excited to see backcountry caring this shorts.
I bought it and was disappointed, because this shorts fit like bike shorts almost like underwear. there is no way i can put them on top of my backountry ski pants. I think they should be made a bit baggy.
Someone would say that i need to buy size L and maybe this is what i will do.
But my point is you do not buy size S t-shirt ,size M mid-layer piece and size L jacket. right?
i understand different brands have (somewhat) different measures.
I wear size M icebreaker underwear, my ski pants are size S Arcteryx pants, but buying size L shorts on top of it. Not sure. I will return this shorts.
I gave 5 stars only because it feels like a solid product.
