For our top layers, I bought the youngest's ski pants from someone on Facebook and they were nearly brand new Spyder ski pants. I paid $25 for them and then found a matching jacket at The Warming Hut on their 50% clearance. It turns out that because they change the colors every season, you can often find items that are just as awesome in other colors on the clearance racks. Once I found his jacket, I headed over to the back wall that had everything on 70% clearance and found my jacket, too. It is the one pictured in the header photo and is called Angelica by Nils, the color is sapphire and it was just over $100. I splurged on mine, because I don't have a quilted jacket and also because I believe that even if I never ski again, I will be able to wear the jacket at home when it is cold. Plus, it has a detachable faux fur trim and even a detachable hood in case I don't need it. I was very stressed about finding clothes for my husband because he is so tall (6'5") and I always struggle to get him covered. I did an eBay search for Large Tall Ski and found a vendor (The SkiCloset) that carries Large Long sizing for ski pants and their size chart said that the inseam was 35inches, so I ordered those. Then I made a mistake in my quick shopping and accidentally ordered an Extra-Large Tall jacket and discovered that the zipper was broken when it arrived and the seller had disclosed it in the description that I failed to read. :( Mr. Fantastic is a trooper though and said he would make it work since his main concern had been the pants and those fit really well. Our oldest's pants didn't fit and we are going to look to rent a pair when we get there. I also found mine on eBay and they are pictured above, Stella McCartney for Adidas, but they haven't arrived. We are also renting skis, boots, poles and helmets when we arrive at the resort and hopefully it will all work out. :)
