Knee Brace Pants
I need a recommendation for a pair of affordable ski pants that have good access to the legs to tighten/loosen my knee brace. I have to take my f-ing pants down every time I need to adjust and it drives me nuts.

I have these and they work well. Zipper goes all the way to the hip.
I did not pay that much for them though...that's a pretty rediculous price.

Thanks, I'm gonna go look for some today...I'm due anyway, but that price is out of my ballpark.

I got Ground Glissade pants from SAC for $49. They're $70 at STP: http://www.sierratradingpost.com/p/3...For-Women.html. They work great and have full side zips. With size large I can zip them over my asterisk knee braces.

Any pant with full side zips will do. I have Arcteryx but got them from SAC so they weren't bad price. But normally they're $$$.**

In any case, if you're ever really in this situation make sure you at least bargain in a couple of fluffers.

Get some in your budget range and leave room in that budgie to take them to a dry cleaner or sewing lady and have a custom zipper sewn in. duh.
I do relate, though. I'm in and out of an unloader brace and it needs to fit right and I don't get very good access through my ski pants.

I partially busted an ACL on a kicker about 11 years ago and haven't had trouble with it until April last season.
I did my rehab of soda and potato chips over the summer and unfortunately first run of the season I tweaked it again. I cant understand why.
I could still finish the day but I was at 60%. Sounds like people are saying braces are more of a mental benefit than anything else, which sucks because I'm going to avoid surgery like the plague. Let me know if guys have any suggestions for braces
