Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Dare2be - salopettes

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I have had my dare2be salopettes for about 2 years now. I have been quite disappointed with these - firstly, the straps keep falling down to about the middle of my arm which, when you are skiing, is very uncomfortable. Then, the elastic at the back of them started to go and had to be replaced. Lastly, the clips (which the straps go into at the front) broke which then meant I had to buy actual proper braces. The braces are much better than the straps and I am not going to take the old straps off and just use the braces, they don't fall down and they are very sturdy.

Has anyone else had these problems with salopettes.

jb1970, I'm afraid you get what you pay for. My last pair of ski pants lasted about 14 years before I replaced them, no problems at all - but I paid £100 for them back then.

i've replaced them with another pair (at about the same cost in the sales) and have had two years out of them so far, again without problem. Dare2Be are much cheaper, so are good value for your first few trips in case you don't like skiing Shocked . But once you've decided to continue, you're better off buying better quality kit, it's cheaper in the long run.

as per marc gledhill, really. I've had cheap salopettes and they were ok at forst but began to wear out quite qcuikly.

I bought a pair of killy ski pants in the sale - down to £65 from £160 or so - and they are absolutely fine after three years, look like I've just bought them

The elastic always goes in cheap salopettes. I wear Five Seasons gear, which is toward the cheaper end of the market, and have no complaints. Ski gear is generally overpriced so always wait for a sale if you can.

Columbia salopettes - warm, waterproof, well made, no problems with zips, elastic or strap flop. > 8 years old and look new. Cheap non-branded version - straps constantly stretching and fall down, zip busted.... buy the best you can afford, in a sale wink

Anyone got any opinions on the White Rock stuff??? Got some of these and used for 6-7 weeks, but they don't seem anywhere near as warm as the first time I wore em?
