Women's Valhalla Pants™

Style# 96505OR

In response to requests from many of our Ambassadors, the standard cut of the Valhalla Pants provides a roomy fit when breaking trail and linking turns through bottomless snow. The GORE® WINDSTOPPER® soft shell fabric is windproof, water resistant and highly breathable, allowing perspiration and excess heat to escape while setting the skin track and fending off wind and snow on the descent. Zippered thigh vents help dump hot air on long ascents.

The best fitting pants from OR (Review by Ellen)

These pants are so comfy. Very light and they fit incredibly well, especially since with most other OR pants I'm stuck between medium and large. I got these in a medium (5'7", 145 lb), and they fit great over my biggish butt and hips. I think these pants are best for days between 25-45 degrees or layer them a lot for colder temps. High back waist is nice for bending over. Flattering pockets and fit.

You want these pants! (Review by Sara)

I wear ski pants almost every day of the winter. Today I'm ordering a second pair of Valhallas so I don't have to be without on laundry day! The fabric protects well (wind and snow), is comfortable enough to wear on bare skin on warmer days. The cut is roomy enough for long underwear on cold days, no restrictions for skinning but is fitted enough that there's no crotch droop or excess fabric to trip you up. The back is high to keep out snow even when bending over digging (or face-planting!) and the waist band is comfortable and low profile enough not to bunch under your pack strap. Good pockets, great cuff fits over boots and reinforced (love the power strap slots), fun colors, fashionable cut. Thanks for a great backcountry ski pant!

Exactly what I was looking for (Review by Niki Fuerte)

I had been wanting to upgrade my backcountry ski pants for several seasons. My prior pants were so baggy, heavy, and stiff that it felt quite cumbersome to move around, especially if I was tired at all. I took the Valhallas out for a test run on a pretty stormy day and it was like night and day! They were perfectly warm enough, stretchy and light. It is not stretch to say that I feel safer because I am more nimble in these pants. I really like having my beacon in my pants now too, much more convenient. I'm 5' 3", 125 lbs and the Small fit great. Still plenty of room for layers but no more "swimming" in my pants. Super excited to spend a lot of time in these pants over the next several months!

Valhalla Pants (Review by Dana)

I have used these pants everyday this season in the backcountry. I found them great for hiking and skinning in. And they breathe really well. One thing that I did notice is that they were a little light weight for middle of winter high up skiing. The wind would blow through them and my legs would get cold. But for warmer days they are great backcountry pants!

Best Touring Pants (Review by Becca)

Trim-fit touring pant with 4 easily accessible pockets, nice zippered vents and no excess fluff. I love the comfortable and stretchy soft shell material. Lightweight, so easy to adjust baselayers for BC powder days or springtime volcano touring.
