The Burton Vent Pant—the lightweight venting champion is back for another round.
Use the Burton Vent Pants to adapt to a wide range of temperatures. From epic January powder days to spring rail sessions, this shell pant's Storm-lite fabric and Crossflow venting system can deal. If you're booting up a backcountry ridge to hit a kicker, open the vents and dump some heat. Instead of being a sweaty mess on the hike and then freezing at the top, you'll be comfortable the whole time. Open the vents to ride the spring corn and seal them up in the dead of winter. Burton gave the Vent Pant a 10K-rated water-resistant coating and fully taped seems so you don't have to worry about moisture seeping through. There's even a jacket-to-pant interface and a system to raise the pant legs so you don't walk on them in the parking lot. *Available for US Shipment Only. - Fall 2007.

BETTER THAN EXPECTED
If you're trying to make up your mind... BUY THESE PANTS!!! I'm one of those who researches way too much so I was skeptical but I couldn't be happier. They look sick and they fit perfect. I'm 5'8" and normally wear a 36-30 pant and the Large fit me great. Although, I do use a belt and I like my gear baggy. I just did a trip to Park City, Utah and they had fresh powder. I spent some time doing backcountry boarding with powder up to my knees (and lots of time on my rear end) and by the end of the day I was as dry as can be. The extra button on the bottom is sweet so the pants don't drag in the parking lot. Get these pants, you won't regret it!
Great pants! I love everything about them except the size. My jean size is 38-34 and after looking at the sizing chart I ordered the XXL which lists a 38-40 waist and 34 inseam. The length is great but the waist is huge! Even having the adjustable waist straps tightened all the way they are still a tad big. But that is why belts were invented so it's not a problem. But an FYI for anyone who is around a 38-34 size to get an XL instead of the XXL. I highly recommend these pants!
Have any tall people tried out these pants...
Have any tall people tried out these pants in the XL size? I'm 6'6" and I'm nervous about the length of the XL's.
Can't Touch This!
At first what I was really looking for, was a snowboard jacket that would keep me comfortable and dry and it was then when I learn about the LinkZip. I decided that it was exactly what I was looking for, so I didn´t just bought the "Burton 3/2 Jacket" but I also bought the "Burton Vent Pant" and they worked perfectly. I really put them to the test jumping, falling and rolling over pure powder and still no snow getting in to me nowhere. So now I just charge it without wondering if I will regret it by getting soaked wet at the end. Just ride, laughing at the snow in a MC Hammer style, because I now that what ever happens, unless I want it to, the snow "Can't Touch This!"
I love them
I got the Kryptonite color they look awsome and the vents are great I did backcountryish hiking runs runs at my resort, I unzipped all the vents and it was like I was hiking in shorts. Make sure to zip up before you head down the hill especially the inner thigh ones snow gets in easily
get em. the infrared pop plaid looked so bloody cool and i got heaps of comments on them. most people just wear boring old white and black but if your eccentric and like to have steez on the slopes, go for infrared pop plaid. these are seriously warm pants and were warm in -5F temp + windchill. plus the chicks reckon you shred when you wear these babies into town haha.
