An upgrade from the XC 3SP nordic pants
Just received and trialed today my newest version of the Sporthill XC pants. A welcome addition for the go-fast(er) crowd. As stated in the Sporthill narrative, this is a slimmer fitting pant (but not too tight) than the long standing XC pant. The material has more 4-way stretch than the XC pants and the addition of articulating knee overlaps also enhances comfort. Was out and about skiing in 19-21F temperatures with no wind today and was almost too warm while wearing a base layer under it. My only disappointment would be the elimination of the side seam pockets found on the older traditional XC pants. I have used these side pockets for my small compact digital camera and often the other side for energy gels during longer ski sessions.
