  • Excellent fit & articulation
  • Dual thigh vents
  • Durable
  • Power strap slot

The Bad

  • Pockets are shallow
  • May run tight around the waist/thigh area
  • Only one back pocket
THE VERDICT

The OR White Room pant is an excellent all-around workhorse for cold days in the resort or warmer days in the backcountry. Dual thigh zips make temperature control a breeze and the pant's storage is adequate, although the pockets are on the shallow side. 

FULL REVIEW

Materials
3-layer GORE-TEX with polyester backing and 78 denier durability rating make the OR White Room equipped for anything you and the mountain manage to throw at it. 

Comfort
The OR White Room is very comfortable, boasting enough space for a wide range of movement yet maintaining an athletic enough fit to not be considered baggy. This was one of the more comfortable pants in this test.

Temperature Control
Here is where the OR White room really shines. Not only does the pant feature a standard outer thigh zip, but an inner mesh lined zip can also be opened up which actually allows for a noticeable cross flow of air to pass through the pants. Zips closed, this pant is warm enough to hold its own in sub-zero winter conditions. 

Features/Functionality
The White Room is equipped with an avy beacon pocket and clip, as well as a RECCO reflector for avalanche recovery. Waist adjustment and belt loops help to dial in the fit. And a power strap slot allows for boot cuff adjustment without having to remove the pant’s internal gaiter. 

Fit
The White Room pant fits a standard 5’10” 160 lb frame exceptionally well. The waist and thigh area may run tight for some users however. Consider trying them on prior to purchasing.
