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 the worst day of his life. It was a cold, windy morning at Stowe and he was trying to get his pants on over his suit and flailing because he couldn’t get the zippers to connect. It was freezing out, the wind was howling, and he was having to take his gloves off 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 solve that problem by using robust zipper that zips almost completely to the top but not completely, so you don’t have to try to connect the zipper, you just step into the pant. The zipper itself is a nice large gauge so you just rip it down and you are done, and you can do it all with your gloves on. There is no hassle, and not freezing hands from trying to join a disconnected zipper together. When we developed this pant, one of the most importand tests was how fast we could get them on.
Skiing’s cold, and once you get cold, it can be mentally consuming and hard to warm back up, and if you made the flip, the last thing you want to be is cold for your 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. They fit like your favorite sweats and sliding into them is like sliding under your down comforter as you are instantly engrossed in luscious comfort.
The Top Step Pant has a 2-Layer Construction with an burly Abrasion Resistant 2-Way Stretch 10K/10K Waterproof Exterior Fabric with a membrane, an Primaloft Gold 40g insulation to instantly warm you up but not overhead you, and inside it’s a 100% buttery soft Nylon Taffeta. We use only the best YKK 2-way zippers, (see above if you wonder why), and line the inside of the cuffs with our “Super Fabric” because we like our edges sharper than a Ginsu.
Made in typical SYNC Performance fashion with a comfortable athletic fit, premium technical materials, just the right amount of insulation so you feel the warmth immediately, a variety of colors offering a bit of flare and plenty of pockets, the Top-Step side zip pant is the perfect workhorse pant for everyday skiing. We think it’s the best pant out there and if you read the reviews, our customers agree.
