The North Face Freedom Pant - Men's
The North FaceFreedom Pant - Men's

Travel all over the mountain.

Just as its name would suggest, The North Face Men's Freedom Pant is designed to ensure unimpeded versatility when you're taking on a day at the slopes. In addition to a modern look, the Freedom's regular fit allows for a full range of motion, so you can throw more modern style on your carves while you're at it. The Freedom pant starts with a tough, nylon shell and a waterproof, yet breathable DryVent 2L laminate, which ensures you stay dry and comfortable, all day long.

Then, the pant's Chimney Vent cooling system, which funnels air from the StretchVent gaiters to the inner thigh vents, keeps things comfortable once the sun comes out and starts to heat things up. And in keeping with its original design, the Freedom pant comes fully equipped with two hand pockets and a large cargo pocket on the right thigh. To finish things off, The North Face hooked the pant up with reinforced kick-patches and edge guards to protect the pant from sharp ski or board edges, as well as those muddy parking lots.

Keeps me dry in the PNW

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

These pants have kept me warm and dry on on bad days and I haven't been overheated on the cold days. My voile knee pads fit under them with no problems. Great pants

TNF did it again!

Great pants from TNF. I use these for skiing and they are comfortable, well made.
They will keep you warm. I totally recommend them.

Great pants

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium/Short

These are hard to beat in the "cost effective" area. They keep me completely dry and breath extremely well. Not quite to the level of something like eVent, but very close.
My only complaint is that the coff protection is a bit lacking. I get about 80-100 days out of them before that area is damaged enough to warrant replacement, but at this price, I can live with it, especially since they are available in a size that doesn't look like they are 4" too long for me!

Standard Equipment

  • Size Bought: Large/Regular

I'm on my fifth pair of these ski pants. I've put them through anything and everything, skiing in the rain, single digit cold, powder, bumps, tree skiing (highly scratch-resistant), you name it. I also use them on a cold snowy morning blowing out the driveway and sidewalk with the snowblower. I wear them with a 2XU 3/4 compression tight, or an UnderArmor tight if it's a bit chilly, and they keep my legs warm even with lower temps and the wind blowing. The pockets are ample for wallet, keys, phone etc. I'm 215 with a 32 inch waist and a 30 inseam, so I had my tailor take the hem up 1 inch so they don't drag on the pavement when walking. I wear a 29.5 cm ski boot, and so the storm cuff is a bit snug but serviceable. They are really good in powder snow, as they are water resistant enough so that you don't get wet. Turn them inside out and throw them in the cold wash, hang them to dry and you're good to go. I highly recommend these ski pants as standard equipment for serious skiers.

Comfy and warm

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

So far these have been great pants, warm and comfy. They seem to be holding up well and I will update this review if that changes.

Great weight and warmth

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

From freezing fog to warm inversion, these are great pants. Comfortable.
There is some great insulation in these, and they keep you from getting the teeth chatters when you as sitting on a stopped lift in stormy weather forever.

Great pants!

Great snow pants

High quality, great price and love the fact that they offer longs!!

Great pair of pants for park days

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Bought this with the intention of thrashing them throughout park skiing and other random endeavors, and have been stoked on em since! They're a great bang-for-your-buck option for those days where you don't need the state of the art gore-tex 3L pants.

Good Pant

    This is a good, cheap, ski pant. It doesnt perform as well as something with a gore 3 layer, but it does a great job, especially for the price
