The characteristics of cross-country pants
The cross-country ski pants are all made of fabric that cuts the wind. Back, some are endowed with breathable fabric and others are windproof like the front. Their level of insulation varies from one pant to another, to suit the needs that change between skiers.
In the most upscale, cross-country ski pants are made of specific fabrics according to the needs of different parts of the body. There are ski pants, such as the Bjorn Daehlie Terminate, with windproof panels and more insulated at the thighs and shin to keep them warm. In addition, at the knee joint, the fabric is extensible for greater freedom of movement. In the highest quality pants, the cut is adjusted to limit friction between the legs and that each push is pleasant.
Some cross-country ski pants have zips in the lower legs for removal without removing boots.
How to wear your ski pants?
We recommend putting on windbreaker boxers (for men and back for women), then underwear and finally ski pants. For colder days, skiers like to have shorts or skirts well insulated with them, such as Menali Insulated 2.0 from Swix.
