Need to get DS 13 ski pants for Feb ski trip. He's 5ft5 and isn't slim so Decathlon won't work as the adult sizes are too long. I don't want to spend much as I expect he'll grow again before the next ski trip. Had thought about hiring if that's a possibility. Any suggestions please ?

Aldi? We've tested their stuff at minus 35 degrees and it was fine!

Thanks but thought Aldi only had ski gear in for a couple of weeks ?

So they have M available Aldi online but would only work if they aren't too long for him.

Decathlon trousers are changeable as they have drawstring legs.

Oh I didn't realise that superram

Consider women's trousers - both of my DSs have trousers designed for women. You might get the size without as much length.

Nearly that's a good idea as it's round the bum/tum area he needs a bit more room so women's ski pants may help

Providing they're not pink I don't think anyone could tell the difference.

I have some lovely ski trousers from Aldi that have some stretch in them. DS1 is wearing my North Face pair until he grows out of them!

The best we found were online from the 'shortskishop' website (for adult ski trousers).

Before that we'd tried Decathalon, Mountain Warehouse, Snow & Rock - all didn't fit and some were also poor quality.

I'm 5ft and finally have ski trousers that fit after 15 yrs of looking!

Oh I've actually book marked that website dame and there are a pair that aren't too pricey, but I'm hoping things go down in the sales as I can see him only using this pair for 2020 skiing.

Great value - dd got hers for £20. And they have adjustable leg length which is great.
They do online delivery. I find their sizing on the small side.
