Smarty or not so smarty—you can always wear 686's Access Pants.
We don't care if you're a complete dumbass—you can still rock the 686 Men's Smarty Access Snowboard Pants. Whether you huck yourself off stupidly high cliffs or just make mellow lap through the park, these baggy-fit pants have you covered with highly breathable 10K waterproof fabric, which keeps you dry in moderate weather. 686 added lots of cargo and stash pockets for your cell, wallet, iPod, and the included tool, and integrated a removable fleece track short for extra insulation. If you have Boa Focus boots, you don't have to mess with the Access Pant's gaiters—they have a little window so you can turn the dial.

I 2nd everyone else on the jade colour...in real life they look like a pair of hospital scrubs...fine for some..but not me. However, WM's customer service is sick sauce and they sent me a replacement asap. I ended up w/ the brick and they've lasted me a while. Just recently tore a whole in the back area. Its a very durable pant...but theres this dumb uesless loop around the butt that ripped off causing the "hole".

This is also my 2nd 686 outerwear purchase. After having my last 686 pants for 6 years, I couldn't turn away from the brand. I used these pants for the first time last week, and got dumped on with over a foot of fresh powder while riding. The windchill was in the single digits. After a full day of riding, I was still warm and dry without even a base layer. These pants are definitely worth the money.
Worth the money!
These pants are pretty awesome. They have a comfortable liner short and keep you nice and toasty when you're riding. They don't have a billion pockets and they aren't a hassle to unzip when you're changing songs. I'm about 5'10 and I got them in a large, they fit baggy for sure. Jade colour LOOKS grey in the picture, but it is actually a light mint green and it looks awesome too.
