Women's Top Step Side Zip Ski Pant

$ 249.00 USD

    Re-engineered way to take pants on and off. The Top Step Side Zip Ski Pants featuring "step-through" technology.

    The SYNC Performance Top Step side-zip ski pant, like every product we make, has a story behind it. Geof, our founder describes it as one of the worst ski days of his life. It was a cold, windy morning at Burke and he was trying to get his pants on over his suit and fumbling because he couldn’t get the snow-filled zippers to connect. It was freezing out, the wind was howling, and he was having to take his gloves off (instant frostbite) to try and put the zipper together, or as he describes it, "put his diaper on."

    The SYNC Performance Top Step side zip ski pants features our Easy-Step design. By using a robust zipper that zips just short of the top, racers don’t have to try to connect the zipper, you just step right into the pant. The zipper itself is a nice large gauge so you just rip it down and off you go, and you can do it all with your gloves on. There is no hassle and no frostbit fingers from trying to join a disconnected zipper together. When we developed these pants, one of the most important tests was how fast we could get them off and then back on.


    Skiing’s cold, and once you get cold, it can be mentally consuming and hard to warm back up. If you're cold the last thing on your mind is performance and if you made the flip or are looking to score, you want to be immediately warming back up for the second run. The top step pant is designed to warm you up quickly so you can immediately start recovery, and thinking about and mentally planning your next run. Quickly sliding into the Top Step Pant is like sliding under your down comforter as you are instantly engrossed by feathers of warmth.


    Made with a comfortable athletic fit, premium technical materials, just the right amount of insulation so you feel the warmth immediately, a variety of color choices and plenty of pockets, the Top-Step side zip pant is the perfect workhorse pant for everyday skiing.

    Love these for my daughter ski racing. No more stuck zipper, great quality.

    Top step too awkward

    Idea of stepping into already partially attached pant sounds really good in theory but is not so great on the hill. Thought I would love these since I hate fumbling with regular full zip pants but I found these even harder to deal with. The pant has to be on the ground to either put it on or take it off, then struggle to get boot in or out of pant. Maybe would be easier if you could sit while doing this, but that’s not a reality at top or bottom of race course. Even worse now in spring with muddy boots or ground.
    Sad that I will probably not use these next year because color, fabric quality and fit is good ( all though a bit long as others said)

    These are meeting my needs. Things it would have been nice to have for me personally as a short woman who mostly uses these for staying warm walking or snowshoeing, on and off over bulky boots: ability to request a shorter inseam; less stiff fabric; no front opening and side zips all the way to the top for complete flexibility. But I looked elsewhere and side zips were hard to find, so thank you for these.

    4 3/4 stars

    Hello Molly, my daughter loves these pants! Loves the color, fit and function. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that the first day she wore them, the left, front belt loop stitch came’s an “internal” stitch that probably wasn’t done properly initially and wasn’t visible on inspection. We were going to swing by the Sync store in Vail when we were there for a race, but didn’t have’s not too big a deal and will stitch it up so it works.

    Best race suit

    This suit is amazing quality, and fits like a glove. It does not rip very easily, unlike some other brands out there. I am super excited to race in it this year.

    I never received the Race short

    I purchased this short with a two day shipping. After two weeks I contacted Sync because I have not received it, I was told that it was a problem with the shipping and I cannot cancel the order until I receive it. Two weeks after I wrote again informing that I was coming back home here in the US and that I need either cancel or redirect the shipping. I never received an answer, I wrote again and still no answer from Sync and the short is still missing.
    We are frequent costumers as my kids are ski racers. This is very disappointing.


    I LOVE THIS RACE SUIT!!! It fits really well except when you first get it on it might be a lil small but that's because you haven't stretched it out but don't worry it will adjust it self after a few rides! Because of Covid I didn't race much but I did wear a couple times but I can't wait to wear this year in races! Plus I get a lot of comments about how cute it is! It has a lot of comfortable padding and its comfortable in general! And that's why I give it a 5 stars

    Stretch puffy

    My third Sync Jacket and loving them all. Warm and functional. Keep up the great work.

    medium fits huge, super wide not tight like it says
