Top Step Side Zip Ski Pants
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 ski day 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."
EASY ON, EASY OFF
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.
QUICK, INSULATED WARMTH
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.
FORM, FIT, AND FUNCTION
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.
Great Fit! Nice and light and easy to move in it at training.
his is the second pair of Top Step ski pants for me. I was originally attracted to them because of the almost full length zipper up the side of the leg. This is important for me in that an old injury makes it necessary to swap a walking prosthesis for a ski prosthesis at the mountain. I’ve got other ski pants but they don’t provide for the ease of access that the Top Step makes possible. The side zipper makes the swap super easy and quick. I was also pleased that I didn’t have to make any compromises in the quality of the pant. Solid build and with all the features one would wish for such as enough pockets, enough insulation, enough comfort and enough style. I’ve got two pair now and hoping the Top Step pant remains in the Sync catalog as it’s my go to ski pant. Five stars!
Full side zip ski pants are harder to find these days than when I bought my old pair over 20 years ago and I was happy to find these on line. Only worn a few times, but to date seem to be very well made. The fit is very good (LX - short, I think anyway). Not necessarily after high ski fashion, but they do look nice as well. The thin-ish layer of insulation is perfect and has let me use lighter weight, and more comfortable, long underwear.
Pants fit perfect & are so easy to get off on race days.
