Jeans are great for gaper day, but they don't really compare to the Norrona Lofoten Women's Gore Tex Ski Pant when the weather gets nasty and the terrain gets big. Even if it looks great, denim's rarely outfitted with a three layer Gore Tex waterproof and breathable membrane, fully taped seams, and inseam vents, and it's been scientifically proven that jeans are incompatible with Norrona's Zip Seal waist gaiter and adjustable waist system. The upshot of all this is that the Lofoten will keep you way drier than your skinny jeans, even when the powder's up to your neck and the winds are howling like a wolf under the full moon. It's great for the uphill, too, with articulated knees for easy movement, full length side zips for extra ventilation and comfort, and Cordura reinforced cuffs that won't shred on ski edges, rocks, or crampon points. Norrona made sure to include enough pockets for your in bounds and backcountry essentials, too, so you'll be more prepared than Cassie Cut Offs over there, especially when the weather takes a turn for the worse.
