The Eider Bormio is designed specifically for the piste, which is where we tested its credentials

Shortage of pockets, no lower leg reinforcements

The slimmer, ergonomic fit and insulation of the Bormio immediately mark it out as one for piste lovers, and along with Eider's two-way stretch 'Defender' fabric, which is also breathable and waterproof, they do a great job of keeping you warm and comfortable, both on the snow and on long, cold chairlift rides.

They come with removable braces and Velcro waist adjusters (but no belt loops) and a higher back with a snug microfleece inner to keep your lower back warm.

Beneath this are two zippered handwarmer pockets, but these are the only pockets on the Bormio ; we would have preferred a rear pocket or perhaps cargo pockets too, although this certainly doesn't impact on the comfort and performance of the Bormio.

We liked the pre-shaped knees as this always makes a pair of ski pants feel that bit more comfortable in use, and there are reinforcements around the cuffs and boot gaiters. But you won't find any lower leg reinforcements - again this is something we do like in a ski pant as it protects against nicks and cuts from the edges of your skis.

However, this and our pocket issue aside, the Bormio is a good-looking, warm ski pant that will especially suit you if you feel the cold, or head off on your ski holidays in the coldest winter months.
