- The ideal pair of compression pants for snowboarders and skiers
- Lightweight fabric; comfortable beneath heavier snowsuits
- Good elasticity and compression with a great range of motion
Designed for warmth, great for winter athletes, affordable, comes in a wide range of styles and colors, good blend of polyester and Spandex, quick-drying, moisture-wicking, excellent ventilation, and makes a great base layer.
Sizes are smaller than normal, and these can't quite be considered "thermal" pants.
Performance: If you're a skier or snowboarder looking for a pair of compression shorts to wear under your snowsuit, you'll love these. They don't offer "thermal" protection (like thermal underwear will), but they do provide a base layer to keep warmth trapped close to your skin and reduce chafing.
The pants are made of 87% Polyester and 13% Spandex, so they have just the right amount of elasticity to make them comfortable without losing compression. The material is able to sense moisture and will dry quickly, thanks to the two-way ventilation. They're great for both indoor and outdoor activities in cold and hot climates.
Design: The fabric of these pants is fairly lightweight, so they don't offer total protection against the cold. However, they are slim enough to make a very comfortable base layer beneath a snowsuit or snowboarding outfit. Thanks to their flat seams and snug fit, you'll never have to worry about chafing or rubbing!
The material has good elasticity and midweight compression, but it won't interfere with mobility on the slopes. However, be warned: the fit is a tad short, with the bottom elastic ending closer to mid-calf than the ankle.
Price: Starting at $10, these are one of the best value pair of compression pants on our list. They are a durable, long-lasting choice that will keep you nice and warm in cool and colder temperatures. A skier and snowboarder's best friend!
