  Size Chart

Leave it to Karpos to design a performance ski pant like the Alagna Lite. K-Shell fabric on the front half is windproof, traps a bit of air for some very light insulating properties, and employs a DWR treatment to protect you from the elements. However, Karpos thought the K-Shell fabric was a bit too stiff for some key areas, so the area surrounding your hip flexors and the backside of the pants are Dualfit. This incredibly breathable fabric uses your forward motion to vent extra heat. The area surrounding your calves is Dualfit Light, an even lighter fabric that lets the pants and boots articulate with the utmost freedom. Sharp ski edges are no match for the Cordura reinforced cuffs. For those unfamiliar with Cordura, it gained its popularity in military fabrics where rip-stop properties and hard-wearing durability are necessities. Cutouts and zippers in the cuff are compatible with just about any kind of boot for the fastest transitions on the course. If you give a skier an Alagna Light Pant, they’ll come back for the matching jacket.

  • Elastic waistband is adjustable via a drawstring pull closure.
  • Vislon zip on cuff for easy access to buckles when your heart rate is through the roof.
  • Elastic cuff closure works in lieu of stirrups.
  • K-Shell fabric on the front is windproof.
  • Dualfit fabric is breathable and durable.
  • Dualfit Light keeps your calves moving.
  • YKK Zippers on the cuffs won’t jam up.
  • Cordura reinforced cuffs are sturdy not dirty.

Questions & Reviews

CDB (used product a few times)
I was looking for an alternative to a race suit, with minimal graphics. These were the best alternative I could find. They fit like a somewhat relaxed tight, which is what I wanted. I wish they had a small pocket somewhere but are otherwise working well for me. Their temperature range is great. I’ve used them comfortably from 0-40 fahrenheit without anything underneath. Too early to determine durability but they feel like they would be torn to shreds if I crashed at high speed on hard snow. I’m 6 feet, 160 lbs, and medium fits well. I’m glad I didn’t go with a size small.

having put these through the wringer so far this season, I would highly recommend them. on their own, they're great for 25F and above temps, otherwise I pair them with lightweight base layers and am comfortable into the single digits. great durability, excellent fit + mobility, and they look sharp. not to mention skimo delivered them to my door next day, don't know how they get stuff out so fast. would definitely buy another pair!

Question from Cary
I’m 6’0 155 lbs and a 28 waist. What size would you recommend. I’m a woman just thinking men’s may be a longer fit.
Answer from Carlos M
Hi Cary,

I am also a 28 waist, 5'11, and close to your weight. Usually wear a Small in most brands for ski pants, 28x32-ish. I just tried on the Small and Medium men's pants, and I think you would probably want the medium. I fit in the Small, but it was pretty tight - tighter than you might want for all-day comfort. The medium was tight as well, but more comfortable. That would be the size I'd go with. I think it would have enough length for you as well.

Question from Kelly P
I’ve used the crazy idea repeat pant size S for a long time as my go to fast and light mountaineering pant. I love that it can breathe through the hot weather starts yet still does good later at high altitude cold temps. I put my crampon through the leg one final time and need a replacement. Is this a resonabow
Choice? Can it maintain a similar level of breathability and stretch? How about the sizing and pdg boot compatibility? Thankyou for the advice.
Answer from Will McD
Hi Kelly. The Alagna Light is definitely comparable to the Repeat pant in terms of stretch and breathability, it may be just a smidge warmer on cold days but not by much. I would go with the same size as your Repeat pants. As far as the buckle cutouts go, the side is higher than the rear, so it looks like it might fit but you would need to cut out for the buckle as low as possible and cut out the rear patch as high as possible for the ski/walk "slot." Without a true lever to keep the back of the pant from sliding down, you might have issues with the pant sliding down and covering the slot. It's hard to say without actually cutting out the cutouts and testing it.

Question from Dorin
I’m trying to figure out if I need a S or a M, and I I need your help deciding. I’m 175cm and weigh 73 kg... Any suggestions??
Thank you,
Answer from Jeff
Dorin, your waist size would be helpful. But most likely you would better fit in the small.

I’ve been using these Karpos all season and will be for a long time. Quite frankly, the best cold weather pant i’ve tried. Typically used in 5-35 degree F conditions. Superb moisture management, comfortable and ergonomically correct so you can move unrestricted throughout the day! Can’t go wrong
