At the ISPO trade show last winter all I could think about was making pants that were tight like old Roffe ski pants. i wanted tight stretch pants. I drew them in a sketchbook and said, "this is the first new style for Betty Rides 12/13!" We had a pro to made soon after. I rode in the pro to this summer on the glacier. I loved the feeling of the Softshell pants so much! I had wanted to do long hoody soft shells for sometime now. Anyone who snowboards knows that this silhouette has been around for 5+ years and does not appear to be going away anytime soon. The flex you get from the soft-shell fabric is really good. I can't wait to wear test it some more before bulk production!
