These are the greatest snowboarding pants I've ever worn, i wore them once and fell in love. I boarded all day in them took them off and they were dry like i never put them on. I was warm all day and when it got warmer i just opened the vents, and there's a grip of pockets so you can store everything you need and then some. Oh and the gaiter works great to keep snow from going into my chones, which is a huge plus. I highly recommend these to anyone going in the snow.
