you can do better...

i've ridden a couple of different burton cargos from different years and they've pretty much stayed the same for years... little to no innovation from an overpriced burton product seems to be the norm... i'm not a burton hater as i ride some of their first layer, socks, boots, and bindings, but in terms of outerwear you can definitely get more bang for your buck if you go with another brand (volcom, holden, 686, L1, bonfire, ride all have similarly priced pants with better materials, craftsmanship, and more creative styles)... you're pretty much getting a little less than you pay for here... nothing special at all and as always, burton pants feel like cardboard unless you really jump up in price to their higher end stuff... as i stated, you can get way better materials that feel like street clothing if you go to a company like volcom or holden (or any of the others i mentioned)... the burton cargos are relatively reliable but seem to break down quick from wear... this pant seems to be the go-to pant for someone graduating from pants they had previously bought at Sports Authority. again, you can do better...

The black, mocha, and trench green are the regular Burton Cargo pants. All of the other colors are GMP cargos. The GMP models do not feel like cardboard and kick ass! The regular cargos feel like cheap plastic. If you are going to get Burton Cargo's spend the extra fifty bucks and get the GMP's!
