Because your legs and butt need an extra layer, but your shins don't.
If you tend to cut the bottoms of your ski underwear off, or if your long johns and snowboarding socks are always bunching up in your boots, grab the Burton Women's Midweight Shant. Burton already shortened these pants. The breathable, stretchy fabric wicks sweat and dries quickly, and the flatlock seams won't chafe. Burton added a stink-proof antimicrobial finish so you can wear these shants a few days in a row without smelling like a high school gym locker. Fall 2008.

I am a petite with a curvy, athletic build and bought these bottoms in a large. The waist fits well and although they are a little longer than I had hoped, they still function as 3/4 length. I wear them as a base layer under my snowboard pants on warmer days (30 degrees F and up), and they are soft, comfortable, and keep me warm and dry. I chose the lime green/rings pattern, and I like it even though the rings look like beer bottle marks. Despite the cool pattern, though, these are not fashion bottoms as the elastic waist and loose fit result in unflattering bagginess around the waist and butt.
Just as they sound.
I would avoid wearing these on a super snow day, as they are not as heavy as my Underamour pants, but the length on them is great!
Yeah, really bunchy in the crotch, I am usually a medium, so I bought those, I wish I would have gotten the small but am too lazy to return them. I haven't had any problems with them, the elastic top is nice and fits well!
Great! Wash with care, though!
I love these. In fact I could PROBABLY live in them. I'm 5 foot 7 in, 125 lbs and ordered the SMALLs which fit perfectly. One important factor to keep in mind is that you should NOT dry these in the dryer. They will got tons of little lint balls -- not so cute! if you hang dry them, they retain their shape but don't get the little lint balls that are oh so annoying. I definitely still recommend getting these.
A little broken in..
It is true that these pants run baggy in the crotch, perfect for sdbr mom's floppy vagina. They are tight everywhere else which is perfect for the no bunching, even if you wanted to put a layer over it. This is the only under layer that I wear and it keeps me so so so warm. The cut is perfect for not bunching too. Just throw your socks over it and good to go!
Can wear them a couple days in a row without it getting gross too.
Wore these one season but the elastic at the top is breaking a little from my belt and stuff. It's alright for the price tho.
She likes 'em!
Bought for my GF and she doesn't stop wearing them. She loves them! Definitely a light weight base layer though and high water style!! She's a 7 and got a medium and they fit great!
these are by far my favorite base layers. i love how they fit, i'm a size 12 and thought the women's lg was a good size. i didn't feel like a sausaga in casing and felt they were soft and super comfy. i really like how they fit just above my boot and my socks can be pulled over i didn't have any gaps. wore them out for a 3-day ride trip and i wished i had more than just one. love the shant.
rant for the shant
love these pants!! great fit and kept me warm during an all day ride. i like how they are cut right above the boot to minimize bunching in that area
I bought these for myself and my 9 year old daughter. She is picky about bunching in the boot area. These kept her warm and happy. Same with me. And they have a fun print so she wants to wear them. I'm a size 8 and ordered a medium, she is a girl's 10 and XS fits her fine. One warning, with all Burton undergarments, they have a snug fit on limbs. I guess they are thinking young, hip riders are on the boney side. The rest of the garment is proportioned ok.
Great fit, awesome price
These thermals are amazing - soft and smooth, they aren't too thick and give you plenty freedom of movement. I agree with Elle Z's review that they are a tiny bit roomy in the crotch area, but I almost prefer that to it being too tight. Awesome pants and the short length avoid any bunching when you're putting on your snowboard socks. I'm in the process of ordering a second pair in another color as I write this...
these are phenomenal
Super cute and fit great - I wear size 6 pants and got a small in these...they were awesome under my lined ski pants.
These are the perfect warmth under my insulated pants, i never get too hot or too cold and they stay dry when i'm riding hard. they're also super soft and look cute around the lodge for apres ski. They do run a bit big i got a size smaller then my burton snow pants.
these pants are amazing. comfy, soft and warm. what more could you ask for? my only complaint is that the pants run a little big, and they are baggy in the crotch. otherwise they are great!
I loved these...
I'm a 44 year old mom and loved these! They are very comfortable and I especially liked to shorter length so there wasn't all that extra fabric in the boot. The fabric is soft (more like a cotton than a shiny lycra) and they have good give. They are a lower cut that sits more on the hips than the waist and I think the sizing runs big (I wear a size 12 and fit just fine into the size large). By the sizing chart I should have bought an XL.
