As the bottom half of a Crazy Idea Repeat detachable suit, the pants can be used shirtless or affixed to the jacket. They certainly stand on their own two legs when compared to other pants. Made with the supernatural PowerKler fabric, the pants are sleek and form fitting. The fabric-makers claim touching it will increase your “micro-circulation” and exercise capacity. We’re not sure about that, but we do know these are nice tights that enjoy skiing. Boot buckle cutouts on the legs won’t interrupt your transitions while the stirrups keep everything in place. A little elastic pocket in the back is a good stash spot. For even more spots, snap it to the jacket and gain all its features. The Repeat pant is designed for repeating ski lines, over and over.
- Athletic fit with flatlock seams almost feels like your pantless.
- Boot buckle cutouts work with Dynafit, Alien, and Syborg boots.
- Stirrups help the pant act like a gaiter over race boots.
- Elastic pocket in the lower back can hold a few things.

Questions & Reviews
Size chart is kinda weird on this one. I fall in between a large and medium typically. I have a 31" inseam and a 30" waist. What size do you think is best?
My only substantive complaint is that I wish the pant had windproof panels like the PDG pant or older Radical race suit. I end up having to pair these with a pair of Mezzalama shorts when doing early morning training runs even with a windproof boxer and a full-length base layer on.
The buckle cut-outs are simple, straight-forward, and work without hassle (I only can speak for Ultra Lock buckle style boots).
Nice to see that they are offering a non-black color option now as I typically overheat in black on a sunny day.
How do I attack the ski boot cut outs?....the whole section or just part of it and enlarge as needed? razor works best I'd assume?? Dynafit PDG's are the boot. Seems rather self explanatory, but thought I'd ask before cutting into a brand new pair of pants. Thanks, Karl
Using a soldering iron for these cut out tasks is super slick.
