Most Versatile
Virtika Signature with Detachable Bib

See all pictures

Virtika is the product of career skiers’ frustration with the price and the performance of consumer-level outerwear. From an outside perspective, Virtika’s gear has a flashy and freeride look, with one of the most creative color and pattern palettes in the industry. But Virtika pants are packed with features that could only be devised by those who spend more time on the slopes than anyone else.

Overall their construction is sound. It’s up to par with anything you’d expect from a pair of 3L pants, but Virtika also throws in a little fleece insulation and a waterproof outer shell as a means to increase their resilience without adding a ton more fabric.

They’ve also double stitched high-risk zones to keep you from blowing out the legs. In addition to this, the fabric around the legs is thick enough to prevent critical tears.With a whopping 8 zippered pockets and a removable bib, the Virtika signature pants are already at the front of the pack when it comes to versatility.

Their pockets have magnetic closures to keep snow off of the seams, and the zippers along the cuff vents can be locked in place simply by flipping the pulltab flat against the tack, so you can adjust for your boot fit. True to their freeski roots, the fit is relaxed and is great for tall skiers or those who favor the loose style. As a whole, they’re a great independent manufacturer and provide a solid alternative to the industry mainstays. You can find their products directly on their website.
