Time for a new nickname.
If your friends call you 'Wet Butt' when they see you on the hill, then it's probably time to upgrade to the Burton Men's AK 2L Swash Pant. Gore-Tex two-layer fabric ensures you never have to endure another day with a soggy backside.
The AK Swash is a fresh update to the long-standing and familiar AK Stagger Pant. Guaranteed waterproof breathable two-layer Gore-Tex fabric shields you from the elements from the outside while allowing vapor to escape so you don't get drenched with sweat on the inside, and fully taped seams with Gore seam tape prevent moisture from seeping in through the cracks. Brushed tricot fleece and mesh is placed throughout the lining to provide warmth where you want it and increase breathability where you need it.
Test-I-Cool venting zips open from inseam to inseam to provide full ventilation for your unmentionables so they don't get soaked with sweat when you're huffing it to the peak. Boot gaiters with cuff-to-boot interface keep your feet dry and ghetto slits make your pant legs sit just right on your boots.

Awesome, Light, COMFORTABLE and Durable

I tried on top-of-the-line Arc'teryx and Patagonia pants before I tried these on and I immediately knew these were the pants I wanted. They're incredibly light pants with a loose fit so they're super comfy and provide room for any and all bending, twisting, etc while riding. They're also 2L Gore-Tex which means they're perfect (and breathable) for anyone riding anywhere other than PNW or somewhere with super heavy, wet snow.
I'd recommend these to anybody looking for a solid everyday pant. The 2 vents in each leg make these awesome for hiking/touring as well considering you can air them out so easily and still have the mesh netting w/in the zippers, which I like.
My roommate has an older pair of these with over 250 days on them and they still look brand new. They're made to a very high degree of quality and won't fall apart on you. If they do, Backcountry and Burton both have excellent customer service who will take great care of you.
