    Men's Top Step Side-Zip Insulated Ski Pants

    The SYNC Performance Top Step side-zip ski pant, like every product we make, has a frustrated athlete with a story to tell behind them.

    Founder note: It was possibly the worst ski day of my life. A cold, windy Carnival at Burke in early February, starting last due to a hike. I was trying to get my pants on over my suit and fumbling for minutes (it seemed like hours) due to the snow having caked the zippers, icing them over rendering them useless, and virtually making it impossible to connect the sides together. Completely freezing in the howling wind, I had to take my gloves off (instant frostbite) to try and warm the zipper up and melt the snow, just to "put my diaper on." I figured there had to be a better way, which lead to the 3/4 Step-Through construction being born. No more fumbling with zippers. Step, step, zip, zip, and off you go.

    The SYNC Performance Top Step side zip ski pants features our 3/4 Step-Through construction design. By using a robust zipper that zips just short of the waistband, racers don’t have to try to connect the zipper at the top, you just step right into the pant, and zip down. The zipper itself is a nice large gauge so you can do it all with your gloves on, no hassle and no frostbit fingers.

    3/4 Step-Through construction has been leaned on heavily by athletes who wear a knee brace because you can easily zip up from the bottom with your boots on and adjust your brace as needed. 

    Additionally, for those who aren't necessarily racing, and get hot easy. The unique side-zip construction makes it simple and easy to vent, so you can dump the extra heat on the chairlift after a top to bottom Outer LImits lap on a sunny mid-March day. Heat regulation is an important part of having a great day on the ski hill and these pants give you the ability to adjust throughout the day. 


    Skiing’s cold, and once you get cold, it can be mentally consuming and hard to warm back up. Once you're cold, your performance suffers. 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 think about and your plan for the next run.


    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.

    Excellent pant

    Perfect pant for a ski racer. Warm. Easy on/off. Handy thigh pocket for snacks. Tough cuff guards stand up against sharp edges. Would be great if offered in tall length as well. And a larger cuff guard would be nice as well.

    Great pants

    Great pants! Way easier to get on and off during training than full zips!

    Great pant

    Only skied for a day so far, but these have consistently exceeded expectations so far! The cut is great (although they ran a bit small for me) and the pants stretch well and are very comfortable. The top step side zip system is great- a huge improvement over full length zippers!

    Pano Jacket - Canvas
    Michelle Boyer
    Best winter jacket ever!

    The pano is a great winter jacket—for racing or any activity out in the cold! I bought it for my daughter but now I want one too!

    Womens ski pants

    I purchased sync ski pants for girlfriend 5 years ago. Unfortunately the new edition of the pants changed so much they needed to be returned. The new leg pocket made the fit to tight in the legs and there was too much fabric in the belly area. Change isn’t always a good thing.

    Amazing Shell

    I started wearing my Headwall shell this month – you all hit a home run with this product. Comfortable, stretchy, well thought-out, very usable pockets and massive vents. I have the mustard color and I got many questions and compliments on the chair lifts.

    Thanks very much for creating this product. This is my go-to shell.

    Perfect ski parka

    Keeps you warm, and more importantly, keeps you dry. I coached at a race recently through a full day of freezing rain turning to constant rain, and my upper body stayed completely dry.

    Missing Embroidery

    We love the actual jacket. We’ve ordered four of them. Unfortunately, all of the jackets so far have not been embroidered correctly.
