I have had these pants for I think 12 years now. I do like to stay somewhat stylish and the fact these are still made and look the same, I guess I'm ok. I mention that because I feel like I'm supposed to by new ski pants but these suckers just won't give up. these pants have about 300 plus days on the mountain, countless days playing with the kids, and for the past couple of years I have abused them on construction sights, to include belly crawling under houses and jumping in muddy water main leak wholes. They are still in original condition. I have waterproofed them sense but all stitching, zippers, and fabric has held up. Are there better fabrics and maybe lighter pants for say hiking, sure. But for the money, these pants can't be touched. When I finally do destroy these, I am just going to by the new ones. My only complaint but be to have rear pockets for a wallet. I'm a lefty so need it on both sides, lol. I did not check it off as a con because I got these because they didn't have the huge cargo style pockets. I liked the one front thigh pocket which is great when skiing because it doesn't allow item to hang or swing as you ski. They kind of ride on the front of your leg when your knees are slightly bent. And it can perfectly hold two cans of "soda" when you get thirsty on the chair lift.

The inside of the cuff at the bottom is not properly protected. The additional material is only behind the seam, which is vulnerable to the edges of the ski. I have 46 days on mine this season and have had to repair them. They won't make it to a second season.

                I never used it, because as soon as I wore it, I realized it's as boxy looking as any $35 product. Nice construction and pockets etc. But the cut is way too roomy for 2016.

                  Comments about The North Face Freedom Shell Pants:

                  I wanted to like these pants as I wanted to utilize them as snowshoeing pants. I wear a size 34 pant and normally I need a belt to go with the pant. 34's aren't super loose, but rather perfect. So I bought Freedom pants in a medium/short and would use the Velcro adjuster to take up the extra inch or two. Length was perfect, but they were pretty tight...meaning I had the Velcro adjuster all the way out. I had them buttoned up, but there was not way it was going to be comfortable to sit or walk. I returned them, ordered a size large/short. Received those and they were way too big. I had the adjusters cinched up and they were still pretty loose and baggy. My opinion is split the difference in sizing between a medium and large. Like I said, I wanted to like these pants as the style was perfect. Just couldn't get the right fit. Ended up going with their Venture half zip pants. For reference, I am 5'-9" and weigh 195 with a 34" waist and 30" inseam.

                      I used these for downhill skiing in Utah. Despite it saying that it is a shell, the pants still keep you warm and have good ventilation if needed. The pockets are well placed and the thigh pocket is excellent to store extra things. The pants seem a little long but work and look well with ski boots. They are well weatherproofed and keep you warm and dry. The cosmic blue color is essentially a navy blue. Overall I would definitely buy these again and recommend to anyone.

                          Not only is North Face the only snow gear that we wear, it is the most comfortable and most durable. These snow pants were purchased as a Christmas gift, however, with all the snow we have gotten in Lake Tahoe, they were opened earlier to get some use on the mountain. My boyfriend came home that night and said I love these snow pants. The weather conditions were icy, snowy and wet, and he said everything beaded up on his NEW snow pants and snow jacket (both from North Face) and he was completely dry. (whereas his buddy wasn't so dry). We highly recommend not only these snow pants, for comfort, dryness, warmth, etc but also all North Face snow gear is true to its description and product.

                            This is my 2nd pair of Freedom Pants. The first pair has lasted me over 10 years of heavy abuse in/out of bounds, and they're still going strong. I just wanted another color to change things up a bit. I will never use another ski pant. They are breathable, strong, warm even without insulation, have multiple pockets, powder cuff, etc. Don't waste your money on anything else.

                            All in all, I'm very happy with these ski pants... they were exactly what I imagined from seeing them online and reading about them.

                            Pants were lightweight and comfortable, but they were just too big and never fit correctly.

                                    I have already taken these out skiing twice. They met and exceeded all my expectations for comfort and performance. They took a pretty harsh hit on day two from a tree, and still appear brand new. You would have to take a knife to these to rip them!

                                      Yes. I would recommend this pants. I wish the inseam was an inch shorter. I chose the regular inseam. The short inseam would have been two inch shorter which may have been too short for me.

                                        Bought these for my son who wears a 32 in waist. I need short length, but it wasn't in stock.

                                            I'm glad I got the short inseam. 5'9 175 lbs. Large short fits perfect. These pants are very comfortable and look nice. The vents are nice to leat heat out. Wish there was another pocket or two, but it's not that important to me. They things protect very well from elements. I would definitely recommend as they are comfy and warm. Glad I didn't get the insulated version

                                                Pants are cool. I practice ski with them and works very well.

                                                  As others have mentioned other manufacturers do not offer more sizing options. I'm 5'7" and the medium shorts were a perfect fit. The other brands ended up being too long and its not like I can go tailor them.

                                                      I have an old pair of NF ski pants that I have loved for ten years. They sadly were torn last year and I tried these as a replacement but the sizing is different. The old ones were a mens medium and they fit me perfectly. I ordered another mens medium and they fall off me. I am a 6' tall women so I generally order mens for length. I'm going to try again with a small. As far as the actual pants I never wore them outside so I can't comment, but they seem par for the course for North Face, which is very good quality.
