Comparison with the Anlamb Men's Outdoor Winter Pants
If there is a pair of ski pants that can combat the sleek look of the Puuyfun Men's Ski Pants, it is the Anlamb Men's Outdoor Winter Pants. If you put them side by side, you might not just be able to tell them apart because their design is so similar. In fact, they just differ in color.
That said, we really cannot compare them best on how they look. Instead, we will look at the performance of the one from Anlamb. Let us first look at its windproofing capability. In that aspect, it can also protect your legs against strong winds and the moisture that comes with it.
As for being waterproof, it is just like the one from Puuyfun wherein it can only repel water, snow, or dirt. It also has zippered pockets, with one zipper having an o-ring, but the stitching is not so good. The same goes with the zippers as they can easily break off.
Probably the biggest downside of the ski pants from Anlamb is the fact that their sizing is way off. Yes, they do have a size chart, but the way that the ski pants themselves were made is very awkward. It can fit your waist but it can be tight at the crotch area or too long for the legs.
It does have an adjustable waistband, but it is not enough to make up for the awkward way that some parts of the ski pants were made.
The Puuyfun Men's Ski Pants beats its competition in a huge way. Seriously, what is the point of having ski pants that look great but do not fit well? It will only prove to be a nuisance while you are skiing, right?
The Puuyfun Men's Ski Pants might not be the best when it comes to dealing with huge amounts of water and snow, but still, you can wear this pair of pants comfortably while looking so sleek.
