/ Rab stretch neo query
My current salopette ankle cuffs don't find over my ski boots which is a real pain so quite keen to hear how people have got on with them.
I can try them on with a ski boot at work tomorrow if that's any help?
If they fit they'd be a good option.
That would be really appreciated if you don't mind!
From experience they're long and slim fit. My missus can't get hers over her snowboard boots.
I have the original dark grey model, size XL. They are relatively long, dunno about slim, but I just looked at the leg opening and I don't think it would fit over my Scarpa Lasers, at least not well. Good pants though.
I agree. Good pants but definitely not designed to fit over ski boots. Typical Rab, great quality and long slim fit!!!!
Thanks for going to all that bother, looks like the hunt continues...
Anyone got a recommendation for a good pair of trousers that fit over a ski boot? Ideally not so flared and baggy that they are a trip hazard when wearing crampons and would also like either thigh vents or 2 way zips like the stretch neo has for keeping cool on the ascent.
Have a pair of Mammut Base Jumps which are great for spring/fair weather touring but after a bit more protection for less kind conditions.
I ski in these, nice fit around the bottom, brushed fleece lining so offer some warmth, these with a 260 pair of ice breaker tights do the job pretty well. I can't see to find them on the TNF uk site anymore though!
Mountain Equipment have a new Neoshell pant they say is designed for ski touring. It specifically mentions having a ski-boot suitable cuff.
Not sure you can actually buy it anywhere yet though...
