Dave here at the house gonna talk about snowboard pants now basically some wear pants kind of follow the same rules as the jackets themselves first thing I'll talk about is going to be the insulation value now especially for guys pants you're not gonna see a huge range of insulation options like you would with the jacket for instance you're not gonna see many down snowboard pants for the guys reason for this is your legs are your shock absorbers when you're riding they're gonna generate a lot of their own heat they're in constant motion they don't have as much surface area as your upper body and they don't house the internal organs so therefore you don't have to get quite as much insulation for your lower half as he do for the upper half you know your basics for pants you're gonna see a lot of the guys pants just being a straight shell construction you know something single layer like this they might have a hanging mesh lining or something like that to promote the breathability and moving the moisture away from your skin but most are going to be this thinner shell type fabric from there we'll move into option that is going to be a convertible system and here we have an example of convertible or removable liner system these just like their their jacket cousins are going to be really really versatile if you're looking for one pair of pants or system to work throughout all conditions this is really really nice you've got your traditional shell pant which is going we're good in warmer conditions you know spring riding and high-altitude out west stuff but then if you're riding say in Minnesota or you know colder conditions you can rack something and it has this removable liner these just like the jackets will really range in what they are from anywhere from like a fleece track pant up to something that might even have a little bit of insulation in compartments on the liner itself some will also have like a surf shorts or like you know swimming trunks underneath so that you can go right from the slope to the hot tub from there we'll move into bibs and here finally we have a bib pan this is getting rare and rare on the market but this one is going to be really really good for somebody who is doing a lot of powder riding a lot of backcountry stuff it creates obviously a better seal between the jacket and the pants definitely keeping more of the snow out you know definitely like I said a really good option for that technical person doing backcountry stuff a lot of these will have bibs that can be removed or zipped off this one is a full-time model and usually with these you're gonna see them in the higher-end shell style constructions definitely you know backcountry mountaineer type stuff but definitely good option for the free riders out there and from there we'll move into the features of the pants Dave McCall here talking about the featuresnow on the snowboard pants once again like the jackets got a lot of different bells and whistles each company is gonna be doing their own thing as far as their features program goes I'll just cover the basics for you first off you're looking at venting venting on the pants typically is going to be on the inside of the leg opening up a mesh window some will have it on the outside some will have it up here down there it's different for every company some will have cross flow ventilation where it opens up on this side as well as this side obviously when you're right in sideways that's a lot air flow straight through your legs really cooling you out well but the inside leg is always a safe bet because it is by the crotch which is the hottest area the human body for the lower region from there move into your Gator and your ghetto slit ghetto slits or you know openings at the bottom that allow it to open up over the boot makes it easier to lace your boots up and it lets your pants sit you know down low you know covering up the boot even when your knees are bent and also it will cover up your high back if you choose to ride like that the Gator is the piece of the pant that's going to seal up against the boot it creates a nice waterproof seal with a rubber backing on the nylon here most of them will have some sort of lace hook to hook them into the boot hold them down this is really really nice because as you you know sit down a chair there sit down to strap in your pant leg is gonna pull up and you want to make sure that without having to check it every time that it's creating that nice waterproof seal around the bottom from there you'll see you know most pants will at least have the front pockets here a lot will have cargo pockets usually these front pockets here will have like a fleece or some sort of hand warming lining to them it's going to keep your hands warm when you're on the chairlift in the back once again usually two rear pockets you know you got to look for what kind of closure they are if their zipper or velcro if you got riding a lot you got your wallet in your back pocket you probably want to look for something that's going to be a zippered one just gonna hold it in there more securely moving into the waistband most will have you know belt loops on them to worry about when you're riding and also a lot of them will have either exterior or internal surf tab adjustments to take in the waist or let it out since most days are only made you know in small medium large extra-large other than that you know mobility would be the final thing to discuss a lot of times whatever size you wear in your normal street clothes for snowboarding you might want to look at go one size up it's gonna allow you to layer more underneath since you're not layering underneath your street wear too often also it's going to promote a greater range of mobility and ultimately it's gonna keep you drier because of the extra overlap that you have you know between the jack and the pants over the boot over your mitten whatnot so consider moving one size up obviously for kids too it's gonna give you a lot more growth room within it too but personal style just like on the jackets is really you know what's going to determine what you get did you have any questions you can always give me a call

    With insulated, Critically Taped Seams, and 8k waterproof / 8k breathablitly they will keep you pretty dry and warm. Personally, I am not a fan of insulated snow pants unless it below zero out side…

    as a response to the title I'm pretty sure you just drive to the store, pick up some snowboard pants, take them to the cashier and buy them.

    Ok so i snowboard and ride snowmachines a lot, but i dont want to buy all the gear for both just takes up too much room and plus its expensive to buy both lol, so i was wondering since snowboarding clothes pretty much does the job for keeping u dry and warm and its cheaper than sled clothing, if u can help me out on some pants and jackets for riding up in the mountains. I def want something thats waterproof cuz sometimes we get snow/rain mix and gets u pretty wet but can still keep u warm. thanx
