When it comes to skiwear, you know exactly what you're getting with French company Eider. A brand that oozes class, quality, style and functionality, Eider tends to appeal to the more refined skier rather than the gnarly cliff-hucking freeride crowd.
If you appreciate the finer things in life then the Sybelles ski pants will be right up your piste. The stretchy softshell fabric makes for an exceptionally comfortable and flattering ski pant that will appeal to those who like their skiwear to enhances their figure as opposed to hiding it away under baggy fabrics.
New for winter 17/18, the Sybelles may be cutting edge in terms of fashion but it doesn't come at the expense of functionality. The stretch Windefender Harmony fabric means the Sybelles are capable of standing up to a battering on the mountain thanks to the 20,000m waterproof rating. The fabric is also pretty breathable so you can take the warmer spring days on the piste in your stride but if you're planning on rocking the Sybelles on a wild winter's day then be sure to wear a decent baselayer underneath.
The Sybelles are designed to appeal to sophisticated female skiers yet at £249.95, the price tag is definitely not outrageous. When you consider that they come with a host of clever fit-optimising features including zippered side openings, Velcro adjustable waist tabs and articulated knees, it all amounts to a pretty classy product that will definitely appeal to a particular audience.
