Started out skiing for 10 years and moved on to snowboarding and have been heavily into it for 9 seasons. Love new technology, staying warm and dry while looking fresh on the mountain. Trees and backcountry are where I prefer but days at the resort are hard to avoid.
Not quite sure why they call the color black when it's quite a stretch. They're more on the lines of a gunmetal gray color. I can't say if they live up to their waterproof/windproof rating just yet but they are extremely long compared to the waist.
Just so you guys know the Gray colorway that you see is really more like a soft Green color. So if you're looking for gray look at a different pant. Love the pant but wanted a different color. Hopefully they'll make the adjustment to the color shown so it's more acurate.The photos came from Airblaster's site so techinically it's their fault for the misrepresentation not Backcountry or Dogfunk.
