I'll have these for years
Been 686 strong for years, got the candy cane stripe one's and they're no different. Compatible with any 686 jacket, very comfortable/stylish fit, and most important take you through any kind of snowboarding you'd wanna do - warm or cold.
these pants are awesome...
removable liner for sping days, waterproof and just steezy when you wear them
these are the most comfy snow pants i have owned they even have a innner layer u can take out and wear as pj's
I just got these since the price was so good being last year's model, but wow, these would've been worth the full retail!
I am about 5'10.5", 180 lbs, wear between 32-34 inch waisted pants, and the L are just about perfect--baggy, but not too baggy, and comfy as hell!
As for style and features, I can't imagine better! Pockets are well placed, super warm, comfy...ahh...the last week at Heavenly has been amazing in these!

How big are you, i.e. what are your measurements? I'm 5'10.5" 185 lbs with a 32-34 inch waist...would a large truly be good for me or should i just do the XL?
These pants run BIG. Trust me, Larges will be plenty big on you. XLs will be way too big. With a belt, the waist will get all bunched up and they'll probably be a huge pain in the ass to wear.
Aggreed they're big. I'm bout 5'7 & 155 and got them in small. Most of my pants are a 32 waist.
i got these in the mail a month ago.. while i have not worn them shredding yet, they seem VERY heavy and VERY warm. quality pants...got a good amoount of sag/ baggieness to them (i got a large)
we'll see how thse hold up on the slopes, but i'm digging them right now
do they come in smaller, and do you ship...
do they come in smaller, and do you ship to canada?
Sorry, large is the smallest and yes 686 can be shipped to Canada.
These pants are super comfy! Super Warm and Silky soft inside. You can also take out the inside fleece liner and wear the pants in warmer weather and not overheat. I wore these in spring conditions without the liners and sat in slush all day and the water did not go through. So these pants are legit!
i uploaded a pic, just wanted to come back and give these bad boys a 5. the leg vents are more towards the front of the legs but dont let that fool you, breeze still flows to the ole' jewels, preventing the buzz killing swamp ass
i love these pants, they could very well be my favorite pair. 686 has done me right don't have any complaints on anything i have got from them.

The Smarty system has dominated the zip-in/3-in-1 outerwear scene for years. It's so simple to just wear them with your balla shorts and not have to think about layering while getting ready to go shred- just throw them on and go. The pants inside zip into the shell with the zipper covering about 75% of your waist- so it doesn't push a zipper into your pelvis when you scorpion on the hardpack. The liner pants also can snap up to stay out of the way of your boots. The liner pants are nice to wear on your way down the hill or while grabbing your baseball bat on your way out the door to see if that was your car alarm going off. These have kept me warm on the coldest days and nights. I'm 6'0 with long legs and I got the XL's and they have plenty of length. I didn't like the tapered cut by the cuffs, they seemed kind of tight for how baggy the pant was in the waist and thighs so I just cut the piece of fabric out inbetween the ghetto slits, this gave them enough flare to cover my straps and boots more. The leg opening has a durable material which is printed on the inside, This stronger material protects your pants from the parking lot or walking around on streets but is not noticed from the outside. You can get away with not wearing a belt of you buy according to the size chart because these have a really nice adjustable waist. The shell is nice to run without the liner in the spring and the mesh vents open from the inseam and angle across the front of your thighs to actually let air in/out. The zippers are covered to be waterproof and have a flap that's an opposite opening of most zipper flaps- kinda like Lamborghini doors or something. Yeah, these pants are totally Lamborghini's yo. I just love how these pants let the park city cougars know I'm a beautiful man.

What size should I get? I'm 6'1" with a 34" waist. Dont want 'em too baggy.
These aren't terrible baggy, in fact they taper quite well down by the cuffs and allow movement at the same time around your thighs and knees. They are longer in nature so you really don't have to buy bigger just to achieve length, so given your measurements and preferences I would get an XL. The waist is adjustable so you can bring that in to a 34-36 area . Really good cut on these.
Been rockin these in the praries since the snow came. dry and warm as hell. kept warm in -50. Made a small tear in the outer layer of the right knee from hittin' it on a rail, but other then that holding up so good. Boa slots are primo, and tons of baggage space. Buy These.

These pants are wicked.... they got it all, waterproof, warm, windproof, ya di ya! if you generally wear a medium the sizing is not decieving. An added bonus is if you buy the matching jacket you are festive like a candy cane, but beware your friends may try to lick you
I got these for my husband and he;s stoked with them. The zip out liner is really soft and warm but it also gives the pants more versatility in general. My hubby is 6'2" and 200lbs give or take and the large fit perfectly, length AND waist (almost unheard of!). Haven't worn them out yet but they look like they will hold up well.
I have only worn these once but the Black Plaid ones look sick and I didn't feel any wind or water through these bad boys on a 12 degree day, I would say that the XL was extremely large in the waist and unless you are 38 or larger in the waist I would recommend the L. The removreable liners are also tight!!!
