Women's Top Step Side Zip Ski Pant

$ 229.00 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)

    I love them!

    I have a full leg brace and these are perfect. Thank you

    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.

    I finally got to use it! Wet and windy summer conditions on Mt Hood (you guys know this)! This product is perfect for these conditions. You can put as many layers as you want underneath it and still have heaps of mobility!

    The New "Go To"

    Purchased as a gift for my husband who has been wearing the same jacket for years on the hill. Wrangling juniors all day, lugging packs, gates, drills, keys, etc.. So far, so good. Has become his new "Go To" jacket. Glad that the hood is removable. The jacket has seen nothing but abuse, only to get wadded up and stuffed into a pack mid-day. It has worn like iron so far. The Jasmine Green is more subdued than the picture on the site. Easy to pick him out on the race hill littered with every color but green. Two Thumbs Up.

    JBL Adult Race Suit Blue/Green -absolute perfection!

    This race suit arrived quickly and exactly as pictured. Size was as advertised. Quality is top notch. Our older Sync race suit has lasted 3 years of heavy wear and still looks great - has only a few small areas of wear that won’t likely last another full season hence the new suit. These are very high quality suits that both of my kids love to train/race in.

    Men’s deluge long sleeve shirt

    I was looking for a long sleeve workout shirt but you didn’t have a women’s version so bought the men’s and I love the feel and fit. I bought men’s small and it is a perfect women’s medium.
