Best Bang/Steez/Features/DURABILITY for the buck
These pants are definitely dope and worth the money based on style/features/durability! The only complaint I have is that they should be a bit longer like other Volcom snow pants I've owned (by 2" or so). Some pictures of these pants online show a Gigi Rug sewn signature on the front, but mine don't have that, and I prefer it, not that Gigi doesn't own the mountain. I like ground drag on the length, pants worn low Lil Wayne style, son. These can almost drag, but I'm going lower than Lil Wayne himself to accomplish this. At 6"1, 32-33 inseam I had to go Medium because the waist on overall fit of the large was like wearing 80's parachute pants break dancing in Times Square, but a little bit longer. The material is extremely tough and built to last. Bulletproof for nights in Compton..... yet soft and supple for on-mountain champagne powder (bust the cap off the Moet!) steez. Plenty of abrasion resistance for bushwhacking, dropping entire staircases, or in the awful event you butt check on a patch of chocolate chips on the hill. No cargo pockets which I don't like anyway because you are bound to crush anything in there anyway, or possibly shoot yourself in the leg if you strap your Deagle in there. There are zippers on the traditional pockets with "pass leash"(a 6-7"? nylon cord sewn to bottom of pocket) to attach a key, or your season pass. This leash is simple, but such a great place to attach my season pass with the short holder I already owned. I replaced the stock clip with a metal one because I didn't trust the strength and security (same with the AK). My season pass always got in the way, or was buried too deep in pockets but now it's a breeze to whip my pass out of my right pocket with no fear of dropping it or losing it, even if the zipper is down. It always seemed like a hassle attaching my pass anywhere else. I'm critical when I spend good money on gear, and highly recommend these pants. Time to get out the snorkel. La Nina is pissed off!
