Eider Women's La Molina Pant
This product is outstanding!
This product really was fantastic! It was great in both snowy conditions and sunny conditions and made my skiing holiday enjoyable. I didn't have to worry about being too cold or too warm and that really helped.
They also looked stylish and made me feel and look great!

Thanks for your reviews ladies they were very helpful particularly as regards sizing. I ordered a size 12 online last night - but have just ordered a 14 as well based on them coming up small for you all!

Warm ski pants
Winter clothing technology has moved on since I last needed to buy ski pants. These are far warmer than my previous pair especially when the wind chill takes the temperature down. I have very short legs and the leg length is a little long for me (most ski pants are), but I can just about get away with it with these. The adjustable waist band works well so I'm confident they won't end up around my ankles!

A nice pair of skipants
These are really nice trousers. They have quite a nice slim fit and fit well. I had the XS, which is a true UK 8. I was a bit disappointed not to have any air vents in them. Although to be fair I didn't get too hot even in very sunny weather. All round a decent pair of trousers. Quite pricey considering the lack of features.

Very comfortable, cosy feeling higher back and pre-shaped knees. Neat pockets and snug gaiters. The purple/wine is a beautiful colour.
I have just spent a week skiing in Austria and wore my new La Molina pants every day for five hours. The higher back feels so supportive, comfortable and warm. My old ski pants with braces made toilet breaks arduous because of having to remove my jacket. These new pants were quite secure without braces and far more convenient! They are easily adjustable at the waist and the velcro stays in position, unlike some makes that I tried, which seemed to give way. I had to go up a size to 14, which hurt my pride a bit, so I would say they are sized a little small. They are, however, cut more close fitting than my previous pair. I am 5' 2" tall and the pant is described as 'regular fit'.
The gaiters are very snug and I had no problem with snow getting in. I was concerned that there were no zips and would not clear the boot but they were fine. Our first morning was rainy but my legs remained dry. I have just washed the pants as instructed on the label. I shall not ski again for a couple of months, so am trusting that they will retain their waterproofing after the wash as did my previous 5 year old pair, albeit not made by Eider. Lastly, the colour, purple/wine coordinates beautifully with my jacket. I had tried many pants of different makes until I found these which were perfect and I was delighted that they were reduced in price by 20%. Not the reason for buying at all, but a pleasant surprise.

Nice and Bright
Nice bright salopettes, very recognisable on the mountain. Warm and functional. They come up really small though.

Good fit and quality
I bought these in size 14 to replace a pair of salopettes now around 12 years old, but sadly too tight round the middle (I'm normally a standard UK size 12 but
those measurements looked too small). The fit is just right, with some
leeway to let out further around the waist, the trousers are comfortable with
ease for movement without being too baggy, and feel as if they will be warm and waterproof. I especially like the high cut at the back of the waist, faced with some kind of softer material which will no doubt help to keep out the cold and snow (as did the old style salopettes) and the subtle navy colour which will blend with my existing ski jacket and now seems quite difficult to find. Having previously ordered a cheaper pair of trousers in another make, which at the same size were not so well padded and much too loose, although I haven't worn these yet in the snow, I'm sure they will prove worth the extra money.
