Take the Burton Men’s 3L Cirque Pant anywhere on the mountain without fear of cold, wet legs.

the pants are comfortable and fit great, they kept me warm and dry on an 8 degree, blustery day in the north east.
overall great deal
only wore it for one trip in fickle n.w. weather (i.e.:rain, rain/snow, wet snow, snow, you get the picture).
so far, the waterproofing is as good as described - prolly will NOT wash it for some time to preserve the coating
the fleece lining at the butt and knees is a great idea! im about 32.5 at the waist with about a 30 inseam, and these fit pretty good.
i was a little concerned about the lightweight outer ripstop fabric - theres already some fraying at the butt and heel. plus, a quik tree run, a brush up against a twig, and riiiip! nothing duct tape cant fix!
overall im really happy with the fit and features - would prolly like to see more durable outer fabric and some extra protection at the heel. then again, i got it for a steal, so no complaints here.

ive read a review claiming the waterproofness is not as rated. reviewer said the fabric became damp and did not shed moisture. agree?
False, its a 3 Layer pant that will definitely, definitely repel the moisture. The last thing you will have to worry about is water getting in.
Maybe after a few seasons you will lose the DWR coating on the outside (but that is normal -- you can apply a new one) ... you will never lose the performance in the fabric as its built into the material, its not a DWR coating placed on top of the fabric that can wear off.
tnx for your reply, ryan.
i have a pair of 686 smarty cargos thats been used for a few seasons, and the lining is disintergrating (perhaps i didnt read the how to care for instructions :<). got the smarty jacket too, and its doing the same thing. prolly will shy away from that brand for now. fingers crossed for these pants tho.

Taking a hard look at these, but could use some input on sizing. I'm a tweener: L/XL. 5-10 205lbs with big thighs. Waist 36". My current Planet Earth pants (L) are snug around the legs, but if these are built baggy, can a get by with a Large?
You should be good with a large... I'm 6' and 195 lbs, 34" waist and an XL is too big for me. They are a bit baggy -- if you want some ample room to spare with a bit baggier fit go for the XL's

i'm 5'10 and 190 lbs. i like em loose, but not into the park baggy look. what size do i order?
I'm 6'0" and just under 195 lbs... I like a similar fit and would wear a large. You may be able to get away with a medium, but I place my bet on Large.
Hey Peachez.. If you want em loose but not too baggy, go Large for sure. Medium will look all fitted and dorky, XLs will be huge.
Just got these pants and haven't tested since it is still summer. Feel nice and warm, def light weight. Ready to test, but so far pleased with quality. Zips in nice with the 3L Hybrid jacket.

Hm.. regarding the color being a match to special blend south beach.. would that be the dark or the lighter variant?? Looks to me like the Special Blend Annex Snowboard Pant is a far darker south beach color than the Special Blend Division Pant?? Judging from the photos the brilliant blue looks like somewhere between the DC Banshee "Glc" color and the Oakley assault "vivid blue"? And definitely less saturated than the 2l "electric blue"..? You wouldn't have a RGB no., would you (c;

Are these pants designed for cold days? semi-cold days? very cold days? If these pants are not good for cold cold days, what pants are? Thank You
these are shell pants and provide no warmth...but they are made for cold weather, when the proper layers are added...if you need an insulated pant then check out oakley's line...high quality insulated pants are hard to come by but oaks got some good ones
Overpriced and Overrated
I would not recommend these pants to anyone. First off they are incredibly baggy, and awkward to board in. More importantly, they absolutely do not live up to their 20000k waterproof rating. When boarding in wet conditions they seem to just soak up the moisture, especially while strapping in. These pants are overpriced (as Burton most often is) and I would highly recommend investing in a pair of gore-tex pants. For this kind of money it doesn't make sense not to.
