    Hi all, , I'm looking for a pair of non insulated ski pants with full length zippers for back country and struggling to find them. I'd like to be able to take them on and off without removing my skis. After lots of looking, the only womens version I've found is the Arkteryx bib which I'm worried may be too hot, the Bergens Gautefall, the mens Obermeyer Peak Shell pant and the mens La Sportiva Stormfighter GTX2.0 (what a name!) I hesitate to go for a mens as I have curvy hips and small waist. Does anyone have any experience with any of these, or any other suggestions? Thanks in advance

    LL Bean full zip GTX pro pants for women. If you don't like them you can always send them back. I have the older men's version and really like them.

    Try searching for Gore Tex alpine or mountaineering pants. They are more likely to have full zips because they are meant to be put on/off with mountaineering boots and/or sharp crampons.

    I would stick with Gore Tex Mountaineering pants. I got one from Sierra Trading Post with a full zipper and it's aweome. I think mine is LaSportiva. I used it a few times for mountain trips but will definitely use it for future ski trips as well.
