Salomon's Lightning Softshell Pant is that rare perfect pant for a multitude of activities. When I was teaching outdoor education this fall, they were my rainy weather pant, as the DWR front kept me dry when hiking through the forest in Maine. When nordic skiing in Utah, they are a great outer layer on the coldest days. And for casual wear, they look great while walking the dog on chilly mornings.
They fit true to size--I am almost universally a medium, and same for these. The medium fit well with room to layer beneath. They are trim through the calves and ankles, with a zipper to allow easier boot/sock situating.
The lack of pockets keeps things low profile and comfortable.
I see this product is recommended for xc skiing, does that mean these pants are snow resistant? Will they stay dry in snowy conditions?
