Kids' Cold Buster Snow Pants is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality snow pants at an affordable price! This is typical Bean quality outdoor gear: durable material and thoughtfully designed. The waist strap lays flat and looks tailored at all adjustment levels. The material is highly water-resistant and decently insulating. It's not comparable to Gore-Tex, but at this price point it's a bargain. You will likely need to adjust the length by rolling up the bottoms, both the inside lining pant and the outside cover. With its Thinsulate padding and butt/knee reinforcements these pants look like specialty winter gear (which it is!). It's bulky compared to regular clothes, but on the light side for snow/ski pants. Finally, it's soft and not too noisy. Good job, Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Snow Pants My son and daughter LOVE these snow pants. Last year my son complained that he couldn't move in his snow pants as they were too "puffy" so this year I took a lot of time researching before buying. These pants are warm without being bulky - which is important for 2 active children The quality is fantastic and I can see them lasting a long time. I love the vecro adjustable waistband as both of my children are slim so being able to adjust the fit is great. These pants are excellent and approved by my 5 year old. It would be nice to see some more fun girls colors - we ended up buying navy which is OK just a little dull

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the quality I was expecting I bought 2 pairs of these snowpants for my son and daughter just before winter. Within 3 snowstorms there were vertical rips in the knees just below the reinforced patches for my daughter and a week later for my son. Thankfully LL Bean exchanged both out without issue, but I am highly disappointed in the quality of the fabric of these snowpants. Definitely not the quality I have grown to expect from LL Bean, especially for kids wear. My fingers are crossed the replacements make it through the rest of this winter, but I will not be purchasing this product for next winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm pants These pants are very well made and warm. My 6-year-old daughter is tall and is always wearing high waters, so I bought the size 8 because I wanted her to get more than one season out of them. They are huge on her, but thankfully, the waist is adjustable, so we just cinched it tight and I rolled up the legs and we are good to go. These will certainly last until she outgrows them, a least a few years! I would say they are probably true to size, given the length and waist size. I do wish they came in different colors. Black, navy and grey are BORING - not to mention, get mixed up with the other 20 kids' snow pants at school. Thankfully, we've moved beyond all-pink-all-the-time, so that didn't work for us either. Please expand the color options in the future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well made HOWEVER... Our family has been a fiercely loyal customer of Bean for 25 years. We have over 350 pieces between the 3 of us. I'm noticing a trend however. The clothes are becoming smaller and smaller. We've bought several pairs of these pants over the years (8 pairs) and although the quality is still there, the material is lacking..big time. My daughter is now 10 years old and weighs roughly 100 lbs. A size 14 didn't fit her!!! They were about 2" too small around the waist and about 10" too long. I understand it's important to have some extra material around the leg to compensate for the boot, however I've seen the pants get longer and thinner. We're corn fed girls up here in Vermont and simply don't fit the super tall and extra lean mold that I'm finding Bean to be migrating towards. Sadly they went back and I've had to write my 2nd negative review on this, what I once LOVED, website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality product, but boring colors We love LLBean winter products and this one is no exception. Good strong construction. Runs a little big, but that's really nice because we have room to grow and plenty of room for long underwear, etc. However .. please consider adding some more fun light bright colors for girls. We ended up buying navy for my daughter .. boring!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, rugged snow pants I bought these for my 5 year old granddaughter. They fit great, have extra rugged panels at the knees and butt, are warm and waterproof. Since they are a bit pricey, I bought them in a dark navy that her little brother will grow into. They will absolutely last since they are built well. One last thing, I was deciding between these and the bib snow overalls. Very happy I got these. Little kids have to go to the bathroom a lot. These are MUCH easier to get off and on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super great quality! We bought these for our first trip skiing. They are super pants! The zippers are tough, material holds through the trips and falls, warmth was great. I ordered a size big for my boy and they were larger but we used a pair of suspenders and they stayed up fine. Even without suspenders the adjustable waist would have been ok (but limited the mobility through the crotch area). Even the pockets are insulated and warm. Overall very good quality which was what I was looking for.
