The Burton Men's Apres Pant will keep you warm and dry as you impress the ladies with your freeride skills. These pant's 10K laminate and taped seams keep the snow out as you ride pow through the trees. When your friends catch up, reach into the two bellowed cargo pockets and get the goods for your safety meeting. In the parking lot, lift up the Apres Pant's cuffs with the built in Snap-Up Leg lifts feature to keep from shredding the back of the pants. Back in the condo, rip the waterproof shell off to reveal a built in board short and invite your admirers to chill in the Jacuzzi. *Available for US Shipment Only. - Fall 2008.

Looks awesome, performs the same
sweet design will definitely attract attention. i spent a week boarding in Jackson Hole and never got soaked beneath the pants. The vents on the insides of the pants are critical to let out the steam from hard carving and do a great job. Good amount of pockets and seal well. I was afraid to put my wallet and cellphone in them at first, but the zippers remained closed and the velcro cargo pockets on the sides never opened when I didn't want them to either. Conclusion: a very solid product.
As usual, I was in the market for a new pair of ski pants. I'm not a teenager anymore, but I wanted something that stood out a bit while still looking age-appropriate.
Though technically a snowboarding pant, they work fine for skiing (except for no cuff guards), plus I found they were the right balance between fashion and function - modern and stylish without looking like I was trying to hard.
Silly board short gimmick aside, these are one quality pair of pants for the money. Besides being comfortable, they're loaded with all the usual stuff - lots of pockets, vents, mesh liner - everything you need for a day on the hill.

Hey, I'm really tall (6'6"), but thin. I like the look of these, but don't know if i should order the L or XL. Does anyone know if they run long as well as baggy?
For the height alone I would drop into the XL's... They will be a little baggy, but better baggy than looking like you walking through a flood!
Xl's are longer than the Larges!
Does anybody know if these have the zip...
Does anybody know if these have the zip jacket-to-pant interface that the current burton stuff has? thanks
not the sip part but ti will have the snap-to-loop interface to work with any Burton jacket!
The only reason I couldn't give these pants a 5 star rating is because I haven't actually worn them yet. I ordered them in October, in anticipation for the upcoming season. Just on look and feel, however, these pants are awesome! If you want to be seen on the slopes, these pants are the ones to get! I am about 5'11, 160 pounds and I ordered a small (I know Burton's stuff runs baggy). The small fits, but is a little snug around the waist. If they would have had a Medium in stock, I would have ordered that. Can't wait to try these out!!
Best Pants EVER!!
I live in Indiana not exactly the snowboarding capital of the world but we have some really diverse weather. I could wear these in 15° weather with a baselayer underneath and I was warm and cozy. When the weather warmed up and the snow turned to slush they kept me dry. When the weather warmed up to 75° degrees the day the hill closed they kept me dry and cool with the ventilated zippers on the legs. These pants have all the features you could want or need.
