VANCOUVER, B.C. – Skiing Magazine named Westcomb's new Vapor FX Pants, which are part of the Vancouver-based apparel company's new ski-specific Freeride line, ‘Best in Test' among 2008/09 ski pants in its annual ski resort apparel guide. The distinction appears in the November 2008 issue.

The review calls out Westcomb's clean design, use of ultra-breathable eVent fabric, and a cut that works for skiing without appearing too athletic.

The Vapor FX Pants accompany two new ski-specific jackets in Westomb's Freeride Line, the companion Vapor FX jacket and the Commuter jacket. The entire line is new for the 2008/09 ski season.
