The Odlo Spirit ski pants are aimed squarely at resort skiers and those who like to cut a dash on the slopes. They are constructed with a 3-layer Gore-Tex fabric outer, removable braces and adjustable snow gaiters.
The cut of the Spirit ski pants is trim and shapely which makes them one of the more feminine ski pants we've tested. Available in a striking white or matt gold (read: trendy brown) they have a yummy mummy slope-side terrace-lounging look to them but delve deeper and you'll find some serious tech credentials.
The 3-layer Gore-Tex fabric is decidedly high end in terms of performance and durability. Moisture passes through the material at a good rate allowing you to glow rather than sweat and the material, as well as all the zips, are fully waterproof.
The brushed backing gives a nice feel next to the skin should you be wearing the Spirit pants sans base layer and the inside of the small hand pockets have a nice soft finish to them.
The adjustable braces clip in and out easily depending on taste, we opted to keep them as they keep the pants perfectly in place without having to over-tighten the waist.
The large zipped side openings and adjustable gaiters allow you to get a perfect fit over pretty much any ski boot and the Cordura scuff guards add a technical appeal to the look as well as stopping the fronts of the pants from getting snagged and marked up.
At £330 there are certainly some cheaper ski pants available but if you want to achieve a feminine look on the slopes without sacrificing performance then the Odlo Spirit ski pants are well be worth a look.
