Slimmed down and streamlined, the Blackpowder II Pants are an athlete-insisted update to a best-selling, favorite piece of bomber backcountry wear. Packed with the same weather-resistant durability that holds up to the demands of mountain professionals, the Blackpowder II uses four key design elements that hit on every detail you demand from a ski pant: (1) Pertex® Shield exterior wards off precipitation, (2) Polyester tricot upper leg lining keeps thighs soft and warm (3) Taffeta lower leg lining adds durability and comfort to calves, and (4) A 420D nylon scuffguard protects ankles from abrasions against rock, ice, and touring gear. Add to that a ski-specific feature set that will eliminate any hesitation you have on the drop-in; the Blackpowder II Pants are your ticket to tackling a season full of steep chutes with complete confidence.

RATING AND REVIEWS

Great pants with awesome features!

I've really enjoyed these pants - I'm usually an insulated-snow-pant-wearer at the resort so I was nervous I would freeze in OR's BlackPowder II pants, but they are incredibly windproof and provided just enough fabric between me and the chair to stay toasty. I also thoroughly enjoyed the Power Strap Loop, the waist adjustment for cinching/letting out depending on my layering, and the zipper vents. Only recommendation would be that they make the Beacon pocket larger.

I have not yet had a chance to use this product, but I am sure looking forward to doing so. I purchased these online, which is usually a big risk for me. I have a very, erm, "athletic" booty you could say, so purchasing pants online is usually a gamble. I was pleasantly surprised to find that these snow pants were curve hugging without being restrictive. The waist is a nice height, and I really like that the snaps are surrounded by Velcro to keep them closed even when bending and flexing. They seem to be long enough, but it would be hard to say definitively until I am able to try them out. I have given these 4 stars only because I cannot speak to the durability and performance just yet, having not used them outdoors. But for the price, fit, quality, and prompt delivery, they are well worth the purchase

Love these pants

Really like the fit. When I wear 2 thin layers underneath I stay toasty warm in the cold and wind. The zippers allow me to cool off when I am moving. The pockets are located in perfect places for convenience and security. The gator aspects fit perfectly over my alpine and Nordic boots for comfort and performance

Don't fit over boots

I was so excited when I got my pants in the mail a few days ago but became quickly disappointed when I found they don't fit over any of my ski boots. Am I missing a hidden zipper? I really hope so! I have a size small, and they fit my body great. Very comfortable. Im guessing I'm going to have to order a size up to fit over my boots? I am at fault for not checking the measurements before ordering but this has never happened to me before so I didn't think to do it. Be aware and make sure they will work with your gear before you make this investment!

These pants are great but they keep coming unbuttoned when i tour! They are a size S and perhaps I need a size XS, any experience with this issue?

no issues we have seen with buttons jumping open, sounds like you might have a warranty issue we would like to look at, get a warranty ticket in at warranty.outdoorresearch.com, or send questions to [email protected] and our customer service team will look to assist!
