From the name the Sweet Supernaut ski pants are obviously designed to go with the Supernaut jacket, although it’s not compulsory that you wear them together…

They’re designed with backckountry skiing in mind and the fact that you may have to do some skinning/hiking to reach your chosen powder stash, so they have great ventilation in the form of full length leg zips.

The patterning and engineered cut offers great freedom of movement and the light, tactile feel of the Gore-tex Pro fabric feels good too.

You also get a zip-off extended waist with braces with robust metal fasteners, and two small front pockets; the pants themselves are held up with an elasticated belt with a metal fastener and have two zipped front pockets and two large zipped cargo pockets, but I wasn’t sure about the latter as the pocket bags extend below your outer knee which can be a bit fiddly when extracting smaller items and a bit irritating if you put heavier items in there – of course you needn’t do either…

The lower inside leg features a bombroof reinforcement against damage from skis and boots and, of course, powder gaiters, and you won’t be surprised to find that the Supernauts come in three different colours, all of which look very tidy.

Overall, great ski pants for serious riders looking to head away from the pistes.
