Volcom = Quality
In the past I have stuck with some of the higher end Burton stuff because it has always held up well but it seems like their quality has slipped just a little on a few models of their pants. So this year I went out on a limb and tried the Volcom Bjorn Gore-Tex pants. As soon as I got them I knew they were solid. I've put about 40 days in on them so far and there isn't a scratch on them, they are the best pants I've ever had.
Also the inner waist adjustment is really nice. I'm one of those guys that is in between a large and an XL so I just went with the XL and cinched down the inner velcro belt and it works perfectly. I'll probably have these pants until I'm too old and gray to snowboard anymore.
