French brand Eider have been selling the Rocker Pant for a few years and they make for a fuss free piste skiing option with little not to like.
Their Defender 4-way stretch fabric is soft and comfortable and a lot stretchier than some materials that claim to have stretch. Couple this with a mid-loose cut and decent articulated patterning and you've got a pair of ski pants that won't ever hold you back on the slopes. Fully taped seams and 20k/20k waterproofing and breathability combine to ensure that you're dry and not overly sweaty, outer leg mesh lined leg vents also help, with a decent cross flow of air.
Comfort around the waist is excellent with a mix of soft padding and secure hook and popper waist fastening, there's also an elasticated Velcro belt and suspenders to help hold the pants in place. These are adjusted via Velcro which works fine but we prefer standard ladder adjusters.
There are only two hand pockets and one zipped pocket on the rear of the Rocker Pants, but this is in line with the muted styling and is plenty for a phone and wallet.
Reinforced insteps and generally good build quality in the rest of the pants helps with long term durability, making these a good value buy if you're looking for classic styling and dependable reliability.
