Obermeyer Lightning Pant - Gear Review

When I walked out the door this morning my truck was reluctant to get moving and with the temp reading -3 degrees, so was I.  Just going outside was painful and the thought of having fun out here seemed impossible.  Dressing for the weather is the only way to fight back and if you have any intention of playing outside this time of year, ski/snowboard pants are a requirement.  Obermeyer is a brand infamous in the ski market and justifiably so with over 60 years of making top-notch gear. 

You can probably find thousands of pants that will keep you relatively warm and dry in the cold and snow, but few do it as well as the Lightning Pants for a number of reasons. Obermeyer didn't leave any of the bells and whistles on the shelf when designing them.  The fit, articulated knees, adjustable everything, doubled material at the knees and seat and vents galore make these pants perfect for any conditions.  Whether you are carving through fresh powder or firing up the snow blower in these, the lower half of your body will be toasty warm and bone dry.

The most feature rich (and expensive) men's pants Obermeyer has available, the Lightnings are the Big Kahuna.  Worth every penny if you ask me, these are an investment in winter fun that will pay dividends for years to come.  If these are not exactly what you are looking for you can choose from any of their 11 other styles.

MSRP: $275
