We test Didriksons' Mission pants to see if their combination of Scandinavian quality and value-for-money delivers performance too
Overall Score
Excellent value, Swedish quality
Cargo pockets would have perhaps been useful

It's pretty normal practice to have to shell out of good few quid for Scandinavian ski wear, so Didriksons' Mission pants come as quite a surprise since they cost a tenner under £100.

And it's not as if you get any corner cutting in order to keep the price down. The Mission uses Didriksons' hard-wearing Stormsystem fabric which is 100 per cent waterproof, windproof and breathable, and all seams are taped.

You also get a fully insulated lining, and even the pockets (two front, two rear, all zipped) have a soft microfleece lining.

The cut is quite relaxed so there's plenty of room for movement, and there's a decent sized scuff guard plus boot gaiter with silicon grip to keep the snow out.

Good sized belt loops mean you can use a correspondingly good sized belt to keep the Missions in place, and overall this really is a good example of a simple, straightforward design with most of the essential features you require in a pair of ski pants - and at a very good price.

If you're on a budget you should definitely check out the Mission pants; and if you're not on a budget they're still worth checking out if you like value-for-money.
