I bought the 2011 Volcom Velde TDS "Spray Strokes" in size XS to match my jacket. OMG, these pants are super hot! Superior design style and quality throughout. Whats more is that they are constructed with a thermal defence system for maximum insulation and breathability as it would adjust to your body temperature variance; guaranteed to keep you dry with its Gore-tex shell; cool hide-away knee padding; ample Zip-teck pocketting, zips on the inside thighs, and it zips onto my coat. Truly the 'Cadillac' in ski/snowboard outerwear. You will get noticed on the slopes with these.
