Cheap ski pants include Sweden Jovattnets, Oakley Tango Shell Pants and Mossi Sledmates. At less than $100 each, as of 2015, all are below average prices. Additionally, surplus stores such as Overstock.com carry brand names at discounted pricing.
The House Outdoor Gear offers a section of discounted ski pants with brand names from 30 to 50 percent off retail prices. Evo offers similar discounts on items from such popular designers as Oakley and Armada. Likewise, Overstock.com carries brands such as North Face.
Ski pants must be warm, water-resistant and breathable to avoid trapping body moisture. At the same time they must be wind-resistant. Nylon fabric meets all these criteria.
